    How sure are we that the Russians were behind this hack? If we are sure, what are we going to do by way of response?
  • Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote 11 Dec 2018

    Is the hon. Lady aware that when the Prime Minister came before the Liaison Committee a few days ago, I asked her nine times in seven minutes who would actually erect a border—whether the Irish would, whether the British would or whether the EU would send in its army to do it? She refused and declined to answer that question every time, because the answer is that no one would ever put it there.
  • Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote 11 Dec 2018

    Is part of the problem not that a lot of the people in charge of these negotiations do not accept the result of the referendum? Michel Barnier has been heard recently to say that negotiating with the British is like negotiating not with a country that is trying to leave the EU but with one that is applying to join it. I wonder why he feels like that.
