Did you mean David less?

Libya (8 Apr 2019)

Emily Thornberry: ...for North East Fife did, whether he agrees that what we are seeing today shows that the lessons of our intervention in Iraq have not been learned—not truly, not really—and also shows how wrong David Cameron was to suggest that they had been when he published the Chilcot report in 2016. As I said back then, so many of the same disastrous mistakes made by the Governments of the UK and...

Scottish Parliament: Revoking Article 50 (27 Mar 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...agreement”, even though that agreement has been resoundingly defeated twice. In the media today, the Conservatives are calling this debate “self-indulgent”. Apparently, creating this mess purely to address the Conservative Party’s internal ideological divide is not self-indulgent; prolonging the mess by refusing to reach out and seek consensus for staying inside the single market...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Anna Turley: ..., but I agree that being honest and having a conversation with the people about the reality of Brexit is the way forward. This place owes the public an apology for the referendum—not just David Cameron, but all of us—but instead of an apology the betrayal has continued. Rather than being honest with the public, confronting the mistakes and admitting that the referendum was flawed, we...

Rivers Authorities and Land Drainage Bill (15 Mar 2019)

Victoria Prentis: ...I would have to say cryptosporidium in Welsh when prosecuting Welsh Water. Luckily, that never came about. I pay tribute to all the hard work that my hon. Friend the Member for Somerton and Frome (David Warburton) has put into this private Member’s Bill, which has cross-party and Government support. He has spoken on the subject with extensive knowledge and authority, if perhaps without...

Leaving the European Union — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Mar 2019)

Jenny Chapman: It is good to see you in the Chair, Ms McDonagh. The hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) talked about soundbites. We have heard, “Brexit means Brexit,” “No deal is better than a bad deal,” and—my personal favourite—“Red, white and blue Brexit”. I remember when soundbites were good—I know you do too, Ms McDonagh. I remember, “Tough on crime, tough on the causes of...

Further Developments in Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2019)

Lord Wigley: ...Scots or Irish; or a BBC plot, as we heard earlier; or double-dealing by EU negotiators. All the leading roles in the Brexit negotiation have been held by Brexit-backing Cabinet Ministers: by David Davis, who over a two-year period negotiated for just four hours with Monsieur Barnier; by Liam Fox, who said that this was the easiest negotiation ever; by Boris Johnson, who insisted he could...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Withdrawal Negotiations (5 Mar 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ..., “Well, believe me, we’ll have up to 40” trade deals “ready for one second after midnight in March 2019”, we might have thought that that was just laughable. Now it is contemptible. When David Davies said that “Within minutes of a vote for #Brexit CEO’s would be knocking down Chancellor Merkel’s door ... Demanding access to the British market”, or when Dan Hannan said...

Civil Procedure (Amendment) (EU Exit) Rules 2019 - Motion to Approve (25 Feb 2019)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...something in the way that we should; it is a meek acceptance of something being pushed through, having been started to patch up differences in the Conservative Party for party-political reasons by David Cameron, who has now fled the scene. He is no longer with us or taking any responsibility for the mess that he has got us into. Other people spread lies during the leave campaign about what...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Joanna Cherry: ...a deal, and then supports someone else’s amendment, which drives a coach and horses through it, as the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden) said? We are in this mess because of the Prime Minister’s red lines and the Conservative and Unionist party’s deceit and foolishness. Another famous Scottish writer—Walter Scott—once wrote: “Oh, what a tangled web...

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

David Linden: ...Gran Canaria or Tenerife, I do not often hear many British people speaking Spanish, so there is a degree of hypocrisy there. On the issue of hypocrisy, I want to address very directly the absolute mess that the UK Labour party found itself in this afternoon. The shadow Home Secretary opened the debate by saying that Labour would abstain on Second Reading. It took 135 miles for Jesus and...

Brexit: Parliamentary Approval of the Outcome of Negotiations with the European Union - Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2019)

Baroness Wheatcroft: ...no sign of metal fatigue. I have always been proud to be British, but that is becoming harder. This country is looking increasingly ludicrous. As my noble friend Lord Cormack said, we are in a mess. It is fair to say that, thanks to David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg, we are in a veritable Eton mess. The public deserve the opportunity to save the country from that mess. A...

Mental Health: Assessment — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (22 Jan 2019)

David Linden: ...the manager of Easterhouse CAB, I heard the story of a man who had started filling out his universal credit application over Christmas but found it so overwhelming that he did not complete it. The mess that that has caused the citizens advice bureau, which is now having to clear it up, is considerable. We also know from experience that constituents who perhaps fail at the initial...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Lord Curry of Kirkharle: ...our sovereignty in the process. We are not going to do that. We cannot have a second referendum to stay in on our current terms now. Dissatisfaction with the current arrangement led to this mess. We sent David Cameron off on his bike and he failed. The people have spoken and we need to move on. Another referendum would create even more confusion, division and delay. So why not just crash...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Kerry McCarthy: ...Meat Trade Association. I have this obsession partly because of its comedy value, although it is not so funny for the pigs involved. It was first talked about in 2008 and then resurrected by David Cameron after he led a huge trade mission to China. We are still trying to negotiate the sale of pigs’ trotters to China. It is a product that we do not need and that China likes, for some...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...after decades of perceived betrayal and years of brutal austerity measures. Upon defeat, he then ran away with his tail between his legs, abdicating any responsibility whatsoever for the mess that he had created. In any event, the public’s patience with this project ran out some time ago, and millions now see it for what it is: utterly pointless and damaging to the fabric of society. We...

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Layla Moran: At the weekend, it was reported that the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, had been taken on board as a backseat driver of this process. I have to say that, given that he was the original architect of this mess, I was slightly concerned about that. What exactly is the former Prime Minister’s role in this, when exactly was the last time she spoke to him and what advice is he giving her?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Angus MacNeil: ...The UK has crashed the Rolls-Royce, and the Prime Minister is trying to tell us that the choice now is to go down the second-hand car shop to choose a second-hand car or a moped. It is an absolute mess. David Schneider, the comedian, tweeted today that in 2016 the Brexiteers said “‘Take back control! Make Parliament sovereign again!’”, which he contrasted with Lord Digby Jones, who...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2018)

Lord Hain: ...compellingly, in the debate on 20 November I criticised as “fanciful, back-of-an-envelope notions” the alleged solutions offered by Iain Duncan Smith and Owen Paterson—to which I could add David Davis. These senior figures are playing with fire on the island of Ireland. It is not only Brexiteers; Westminster politicians more generally have been reluctant to acknowledge the UK’s...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (1st Day) (Continued) (5 Dec 2018)

Lord Wigley: ...phalanx of leave-voting Ministers have represented the UK in negotiations in Brussels and with the international world. They have made an appalling botch of it, which is partly why we are in such a mess today. We had the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson insisting that he could have his cake and eat it; David Davis, who led the Brexit negotiations, managed to negotiate with Michel Barnier...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Hilary Benn: ...to Edward Heath’s argument that joining the Common Market was a “great step forward towards the removal of divisions in western Europe”, from Harold Wilson’s renegotiation and referendum to David Cameron’s, the British people have shown support for and reticence about Europe in almost equal measure. I argued for remaining in the European Union, but not because it is perfect. It...
