Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Jim Dowd: I support the motion because, as a Government Member said earlier, it seems rather bizarre that the Opposition should say, “We want to keep a Tory Government in power.” That just makes no sense. We have to put our case to the British people and see what happens. We have arrived today at a point that I always thought was inevitable. This was bound to happen. I never bought all that guff...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Jim Dowd: The follow-through is to do whatever we can to get rid of a Tory Government as soon as we can. That is always the case. It might not work, but that is up to the British people in an election. It is their choice. In saying why I think this position is inevitable, I want to pay a minor tribute to Mr David Cameron—late of this parish. When the history of this country in the early part of the...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Jim Dowd: I shall be as brief as I can. It is slightly depressing when, because of collusion between the Front Benchers, the result is, as everybody knows, a foregone conclusion. Eric Forth, whom many of us will remember, always used to say that when the Front Benchers agree with each other, it is time for the House to be at its most active in examining precisely what that alliance means. My hon....

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Jim Dowd: That is indeed precisely the point. We can do that, and we can do it now. The reason UKIP has so little traction in London, for example, is that most Londoners, within a generation or two, are immigrants themselves—not necessarily from overseas, but from other parts of the United Kingdom: from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the north or the south-west. The idea of “the other” is...

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Jim Dowd: Let us get back to the issue of the status of EU nationals in this country. Everybody will have noticed the somewhat embarrassing position in which the Prime Minister found herself at the European Council when she raised this issue; her next remarks apparently were, “I think I’d better leave”, which got no response at all. I am sure the Minister will not be able to answer this...

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Jim Dowd: I would just say to the hon. Member for Macclesfield (David Rutley) that, had my hon. Friend the Member for Blackley and Broughton (Graham Stringer) and I known that the Chair of the Committee was going to write the last line of the report, we would not have voted for it in the first place. [Laughter.] None the less, I am delighted to be here this evening to support the Committee and its...
