Holocaust Memorial Day (24 Jan 2019)

Ian Austin: ...them on to trains to the gas chambers, Britain provided a haven for thousands of refugee children. Think of Britain in the ’30s: the rest of Europe was succumbing to fascism—Hitler in Germany, Mussolini in Italy, Franco in Spain—but here in Britain, Mosley was rejected. Imagine 1941: France invaded, Europe overrun, America not yet in the war and just one country standing for freedom...

Royal Academy of Arts: 250th Anniversary - Question for Short Debate (12 Dec 2018)

Lord Cormack: ...things, but I shall just highlight perhaps the first of the great international exhibitions, the Italian exhibition of 1930, which was not without controversy because its most notable visitor was Mussolini. It was, however, an extraordinary exhibition, bringing together works by Donatello, Raphael and all the great Italian artists of the Renaissance. Just five years later, there was a...

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: ...falling. However, we must understand that the drip, drip of hate speech by leaders can affect people’s reactions, as we saw with rabble-rousing leaders of the past, such as Adolph Hitler and Mussolini—proponents of this type of populist leadership. I am afraid that Donald Trump is a modern example. His constant reference to fake news and to journalists as enemies of the people is a...

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice ( 6 Nov 2018)

Tom Watson: ...of Nations was a well-intentioned attempt to stop such a thing happening again, but it proved inadequate to the task of responding to the nationalism, fascism and territorial ambition of Hitler and Mussolini, Soviet expansionism, or indeed America First isolationism. The failure of the League of Nations showed the need for stronger international institutions, and since the second world...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Chris Bryant: ...he was brave: he fought in the RAF and he was killed in action against the Germans. However, throughout the 1930s, he was a very pronounced fascist. He regularly spoke in this Chamber in favour of Mussolini and he did intelligence work for the Nazi party of Germany. I personally think that if we are going to show his medals, we should show the full story of how he came to fight in the war,...

International Women’s Day: Progress on Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ...was quite different to what we have come to experience latterly. I was born into a world where we worried about the quality of our leadership. It was a world that was led by men: Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. The Chinese were preparing for a revolution led by men. We were all at war fighting each other. With male domination, what do men do best? They cannot resist fighting each other for...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons (13 Mar 2017)

Lord Taverne: ...or very damaging to this country have now accepted. It is a very dangerous step towards the doctrine that the people’s will must always prevail. This is the doctrine always favoured by Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin—and by Erdogan at present. It is a denial of the essence of democracy, which we have supported to great effect in this country. Now we are abandoning it. We are the guardians...

Exiting the European Union: Human Rights ( 9 Mar 2017)

Michael Fabricant: You look like Mussolini!

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Taverne: ...Public Safety. With great respect to my noble friend Lord Ashdown, the idea that the will of the people equals democracy or the national interest is a fallacy. Before the Second World War, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin all commanded overwhelming public support and represented the will of the people. That hardly made them democrats or left their countries better off. Today Putin and Erdogan...

Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Dennis Skinner: Will the Foreign Secretary for a moment try to recall, along with me, what it was like as I hid under the stairs when two fascist dictators, Mussolini and Hitler, rained bombs on towns and cities in Britain? Now this Government are hand in hand with another fascist, Trump. I say to the Foreign Secretary: do the decent thing and ban the visit. This man is not fit to walk in the footsteps of...

Brexit: Case for a Second Referendum - Question for Short Debate ( 7 Jul 2016)

Lord Balfe: ...up a point made by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Brown. The reason it was put into the German constitution was that Prime Minister Attlee pointed out that referenda were the tools of Hitler and Mussolini. That constitution was drawn up during the Labour Government of 1945. Before the referendum, the question was quite simple. It was: what might happen? The people decided that they would...

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] ( 9 May 2016)

Bernard Jenkin: ...that it is not the first time that the United States of America has misconstrued its own interests. President Roosevelt did not want Churchill to fight Hitler. He wanted us to make peace with Mussolini. Ronald Reagan pleaded with Margaret Thatcher not to take the Falkland Islands by military force but to do some kind of shared sovereignty deal with a south American dictator. Our allies may...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Maxton: ...up Lord Reith on the internet—not on the BBC website but on Google. I googled his name and discovered what a nasty piece of goods he was. He was a thoroughly nasty man. He supported Hitler and Mussolini during the 1930s. He also disliked Winston Churchill. There may be a reason for that, but he was an enemy of Winston Churchill throughout the whole of his career. He also never watched...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria ( 2 Dec 2015)

Hilary Benn: ...why, as we have heard tonight, socialists, trade unionists and others joined the International Brigade in the 1930s to fight against Franco. It is why this entire House stood up against Hitler and Mussolini. It is why our party has always stood up against the denial of human rights and for justice. My view is that we must now confront this evil. It is now time for us to do our bit in...

Universities: Freedom of Speech — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...and Country”, was carried by 275 votes to 153. It is one of the most widely reported and discussed debates at the Oxford Union. There are varying opinions as to how far it influenced Hitler and Mussolini into thinking that the British were pacifists who would present little opposition to potential aggressors. Interestingly, the Cambridge Union had staged a similar pacifist debate in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Trade Union Bill (14 Sep 2015)

Alan Johnson: ...inconvenienced by them. We either accept the right to strike, as the Secretary of State said he did, or we make facetious arguments about its having an effect on other people, in which, just like Mussolini and Hitler, whose first action it was, we ban free trade unions. But that is not what the Bill is about, as I understand it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Greece ( 6 Jul 2015)

David Winnick: ...constant humiliation the country has suffered over the years and the economic pressures piled on it? Should it not be borne in mind that we are dealing with a country that said a very firm no to Mussolini, that bravely opposed the Nazi barbarians and that opposed the military gangsters who took over the country in 1967? Is this not a people and a country that should be treated with...

City Regions and Metro Mayors ( 9 Jun 2015)

John Pugh: ...satisfaction by Whitehall. What is odd about the Government’s proposals is their insistence that this sort of devolution requires something called a Metro Mayor—a Mr Big or a kind of civic Mussolini—which is different from having an effective council leader or a figurehead, for which many people see the need in certain areas or for certain purposes. It is essentially the...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) ( 2 Mar 2015)

Crispin Blunt: ...and the fact that only a few tens of thousands of people went on to the streets of Moscow. What happened there was the dying gasp of liberal Russia. We have seen the same thing before; it was what Mussolini did to his opponents in fascist Italy. The alarming thing is the popular support that Putin enjoys—the statistics were given again by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston. He is...

Public Bill Committee: European Union (Referendum) Bill: Clause 3 - Conduct of the referendum and further provisions (10 Sep 2013)

Barry Sheerman: ...change our constitution and affect the lives of the people in our country into the far distant future, so we must take it seriously. I have never liked referendums. I always associate them with a Mussolini style of Government. He liked referendums and he was an expert at phrasing them to get a favourable reply. Referendums were also much favoured by Tony Benn and I disagreed with him. I am...
