Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of his statement, but what we have before us is a rehashed version of previously rejected proposals that would put the Good Friday agreement at risk and trigger a race to the bottom on rights and protections for workers, consumers and our precious environment. Given the seriousness of this issue and the vagueness of the proposals so far, will the...

Prime Minister's Role in Creating a Safe Environment (26 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips) on securing this urgent question. It is extremely disappointing that the Prime Minister has not respected this House by attending here today. His language and demeanour yesterday was, frankly, nothing short of disgraceful. Three years ago, our colleague—our Member of Parliament—Jo Cox was murdered...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for giving me an advance copy of his statement. Unfortunately, it was like his illegal shutting down of Parliament—“null” and “of no effect and should be quashed”, in the words of the Supreme Court. This was 10 minutes of bluster from a dangerous Prime Minister who thinks he is above the law, but in truth he is not fit for the office he holds. I am glad to...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Yesterday’s Supreme Court verdict represents an extraordinary and, I believe, precarious moment in this country’s history. The highest court in this land has found that the Prime Minister broke the law when he tried to shut down our democratic accountability at a crucial moment in our public life. The judges concluded that there was no reason, “let alone a good...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Quite simply, for the good of this country, the Prime Minister should go. He says he wants a general election. I want a general election. It is very simple: if he wants an election, get an extension and let us have an election.

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is to stop a no deal.

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Thank you for what you have just said—and the sincerity with which you said it—about the threats made to Members of Parliament; the abuse, racism and violence happening in our communities; and the unfortunate messages that come from the language used, which is then repeated on the streets when people threaten public representatives and others with...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The only point of any importance that the Prime Minister has just included in his speech is his clear indication that he does not intend to follow the law that has just been passed that requires him to ask for an extension in certain circumstances. He also gave no answer on the two decisions this House has already made today concerning the publication of Yellowhammer documents and his own...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The point I was making was that this will be against a backdrop of unemployment, increasing deindustrialisation and deepening poverty within our society, so it is not surprising that the Government were so keen to hide the Yellowhammer documents—their own documents—which would demonstrate that to be the case. We have no faith that the Government are seeking a deal in good faith. Indeed,...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: First, where are the Prime Minister’s proposals for the renegotiations? Where are they? When were they published? What is their content? Secondly, if the Prime Minister seeks no deal, why does he not argue for it and seek the mandate for it that the Government do not so far possess? There is no mandate for no deal. [Interruption.] No, I am not giving way. Thirdly, if, as he claims, the...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are the responsible party in this room, and we do not want to crash out with no deal. There is also the issue of trust in a Prime Minister who is unable to answer any questions and is desperate to suspend Parliament to avoid any scrutiny. Thirdly, if the Prime Minister is making progress, as he told the House last week, why did the Taoiseach tell him only this morning that he was yet to...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is extraordinary that the House is having to debate whether the Prime Minister will abide by a law that has just been passed by Parliament, and that the same Prime Minister, who managed to be here for the Division earlier, cannot be here to answer questions from Members, and no Law Officers are present either. All the Members who have spoken raised questions—

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yes, of course.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention; she makes her point very well. If the Foreign Secretary wishes to reply, I will happily give way.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Foreign Secretary shakes his head and does not wish to intervene. The situation is simply this. The House has voted several times to say that a no-deal exit must be taken off the table, and it subsequently passed legislation to prevent no deal. The Government then apparently refused to accept the decision of the House, which is why this motion has been brought before us this evening. The...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: No, I will not give way. I simply say that the House has an opportunity tonight to express its view that the Prime Minister should obey the decision that was taken by both Houses of Parliament and that was passed into law today. I hope that Members of this House will vote accordingly, and that his Government will learn the lesson that they cannot ride roughshod over our democracy.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I beg to move, That this House has considered the welcome completion of all parliamentary stages of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill and has considered the matter of the importance of the rule of law and Ministers’ obligation to comply with the law. I welcome the decision that the House has just reached, and I look forward to the Government abiding by and accepting that...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Indeed. I do not keep the Prime Minister’s diary. He may keep his own, but he is certainly not here to reply to this debate. I believe he ought to be, as the motion is specifically directed at him. [Interruption.] Again, I cannot help with that question, but others may be able to do so. We learned from leaked Government papers that our constituents whose medical supplies are at risk from a...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I do not really wish anyone dead in a ditch, even if that is their own wish. The first answer that the Prime Minister gave ought to have been that he accepted the will of the democratically elected Parliament. This is a parliamentary democracy—we do not have an executive president who can rule over us. We have to make it very clear that we expect the Prime Minister to abide by the details...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is quite right. Language has consequences, as people trot out what has been said by the Prime Minister and others, and turn it into the most abusive language and the most abusive behaviour against others. Surely we can have an intelligent debate in our society without resorting to the kind of behaviour, language or violence that has been threatened against some...
