Justice: The Rule of Law (3 Nov 2020)

John Nicolson: Former Supreme Court Justice Lord Dyson described the Government’s toxic rhetoric on the legal profession as “irresponsible”, “dangerous” and “inflammatory,” and “the language of a demagogue.” The former Director of Public Prosecutions, Lord Macdonald, said the Government’s language is indecent and typifies “precisely this sort of ugly authoritarianism that the rule of...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: International Funding (24 Sep 2020)

John Nicolson: That was simply not good enough from the Minister. The preamble to the constitution of UNESCO states: “since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed”, and that is the guiding principle of so many cross-border cultural initiatives such as Creative Europe. The decision to end our participation in the programme not only erects...

BBC (21 Jul 2020)

John Nicolson: Tory Ministers’ feigned shock at BBC job cuts and at old people being pursued for TV licence payments is nothing but humbug. Everyone knew that this would be the result of the last charter deal, cooked up by the Government and BBC director-general Tony Hall. The Government demanded that free TV licences for the over-75s—which should be a social provision—be funded by the BBC, and the...

UK Telecommunications (14 Jul 2020)

John Nicolson: Well, well, well. Here we go again—another screeching handbrake turn. When we debated this in January, SNP Members warned the Government that Huawei could not be trusted with our 5G mobile network. Security experts were clear: we should not open up the central nervous system of our modern society to a company owned by the Chinese Communist party. With that characteristic combination of...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband Delivery (9 Jul 2020)

John Nicolson: I am concerned that the Government have gone completely silent on their 2025 roll-out target for gigabyte-capable broadband; instead, we are told that it will be delivered as soon as possible.

No statement has been made, and industry voices are...

Arts, Culture and Heritage: Support Package (7 Jul 2020)

John Nicolson: All of us are conscious of how tough these months have been for our galleries, museums, cinemas, theatres and live music venues. For too long, the UK Government left our creative communities to languish in uncertainty and accumulating debt. I regret that this help comes too late for organisations that have already gone under. That said, I welcome the announcement of a £1.57 billion lifeline...
