Scottish Parliament: General Election (Private Conversations) (11 Dec 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: ...that she wanted to drop Labour’s opposition to a second independence referendum. On the eve of this election, would she like to share any private conversations that she is having with Jeremy Corbyn?

Scottish Parliament: General Election (Private Conversations) (11 Dec 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: I am not sure that that is credible, because I thought that the First Minister said in the chamber a few weeks ago that she had had conversations with Jeremy Corbyn.

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (14 Nov 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: ...shows that she always loses. I ask the question because I am just not sure that the First Minister has thought through her big double referendum promise. As she keeps telling us, she would ask Jeremy Corbyn for a referendum on independence and demand that it is held next year. We know, too, that she would support Mr Corbyn’s plan for a second Brexit referendum, also to be held next year....

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (14 Nov 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: Unlike some in this chamber, the Scottish Conservatives are not buying it. We will stand up for Scotland’s lifetime decision to stay in the UK. Is not the real question why she and Jeremy Corbyn are refusing to do so?

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (31 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: 1. Yesterday, Jeremy Corbyn again declared that he is prepared to grant an independence referendum if he becomes Prime Minister. Given that they are here and that they have given in, would the First Minister like to thank Labour Party members personally?

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (31 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: ...Democrats and that it will take more than a spoonful of sugar to swallow anything that their leader is offering. However, just two weeks ago at her party conference, the First Minister said that Jeremy Corbyn should not even pick up the phone if he was not prepared to agree to a referendum. Now that Mr Corbyn has made plain that he is, indeed, happy to concede to having that referendum, is...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (31 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: I am a little puzzled that the First Minister is being so coy because, like me, she does not rate Mr Corbyn. Only last month she said that she was “no fan”. Worse, she has described him as “pitifully ineffective”, “unreliable” and “unelectable.” Perhaps she can enlighten the chamber—what is it that first attracted her to the independence referendum-supporting Jeremy Corbyn?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: Our position is that further dither, delay and uncertainty, and the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister—to which the First Minister is disgracefully open—is much more damaging to us all than getting the matter sorted now. We are at the 11th hour; there is a need on all sides to compromise if we are going to reach a negotiated settlement. Yet, the record of this Scottish National...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: The real shame is a First Minister who is prepared to conspire to make Jeremy Corbyn the Prime Minister of this country. Once again—and typically—the First Minister confirms that there has not been a referendum this century the result of which she is prepared to accept, support or implement. That is not democracy. Let us just examine for a moment the First Minister’s plan and the...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Negotiations) (25 Oct 2017)

Jackson Carlaw: Brussels. There is an interesting difference between political theatre and reality. I understand that the Labour Party wants to pretend that the negotiations would be conducted much better if Jeremy Corbyn were in charge, which is not a proposition that many people can readily support, and I understand that the SNP has a different position. In fairness, I say that the SNP voted against...

Scottish Parliament: Junior Minister (6 Sep 2016)

Jackson Carlaw: .... Conventional wisdom has it that no politician who aspires to be serious and recognised as such will sport a beard. However, this is 2016 and we live surrounded by bearded political giants such as Jeremy Corbyn, David Mundell and—in a rather half-hearted, cultivated stubble sort of way this afternoon—Humza Yousaf. This is an unforeseen appointment to an unforeseen EU referendum...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Implications for Scotland) (28 Jun 2016)

Jackson Carlaw: ...Dugdale has to reflect that although many Labour voters may have followed her advice in Scotland, by a far greater margin they reflected the absolutely shocking leadership that has been shown by Jeremy Corbyn. No national leader has looked since last Thursday more lacklustre, smug or indifferent to the result than he has, so she can stew in her anger against Conservative members in the...
