UK/Poland Relations (17 May 2006)

Daniel Kawczynski: ...fought in Arnhem with the British and played a leading part under British command at Monte Cassino in liberating that bastion along the spine of Italy, which ultimately led to the downfall of the Mussolini regime. I am extremely proud of that; that is why I have kept my very difficult-to-pronounce surname. As I said in my maiden speech, when I was in business many people said to me, "You...

Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2005)

David Heath: ...of real opposition from the Conservatives during that period. However, I think that he has a point. His colleagues in the European Parliament are deeply concerned at being asked to sit with Ms. Mussolini, Mr. Le Pen and the others in that ragbag. I would not be so crass as to ask them to join the Liberal Democrats, but they might like to submit entry application forms to the Alliance of...

European Council: 15–16 December 2005 (19 Dec 2005)

Baroness Amos: ...they would have to sit with the group of independent MEPs. I quote a Conservative MEP: "These are the MEPs whom no other group will tolerate, and include people like Jean-Marie Le Pen, Alessandra Mussolini and Robert Kilroy-Silk". I have some difficulty in understanding how the noble Lord would expect his party to serve Britain's interests in Europe through that mechanism. On that point, I...

European Council (19 Dec 2005)

Tony Blair: It is actually worse than that. If the Conservatives withdraw from the EPP, Jean-Marie Le Pen will sit there, Mrs. Mussolini will sit here, the Conservative party will sit there and, worst of all, Robert Kilroy-Silk will sit there. [Laughter.] Before the hon. Gentleman attacks my leadership in the European Union, he should start to exercise some himself.

European Affairs (14 Dec 2005)

Chris Bryant: ...and Marine Le Pen. Those people are members of the Front National. Italy is even better. Its MEPs include Alessandro Battilocchio, Gianni De Michelis, Gianni Rivera, Luca Romagnoli and Alessandra Mussolini. That is great because the Conservatives will have a choice between the fascists and the communists, which is a delight. It is always difficult to talk about Austrian politics without...

European Affairs (14 Dec 2005)

Jack Straw: ...sit alongside "ultra-nationalists". The Conservative MEP, Mr. Struan Stevenson, says that they are "the MEPs whom no other group will tolerate, and include people like Jean-Marie Le Pen, Alessandra Mussolini and"— even worse— "Robert Kilroy-Silk". In a later article he describes them even more succinctly as "fascists and nutters that nobody else will sit with". The hon. Member for...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (23 May 2005)

Lord Rennard: ...extra 20 per cent of the seats to a party that can poll only 35 per cent of the vote so that barely a third of those voting are represented by significantly more than half of the MPs. In the 1930s, Mussolini passed a law that meant that whichever was the largest party in the Italian Parliament was automatically allocated as of right two-thirds of the seats. All over the world, countries...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland's Veterans (12 May 2005)

Irene Oldfather: ...respectability by the back door. In recent years, Europe has seen the rise—and, fortunately, the fall—of Jorg Heider in Austria. In Italy, too, within the National Alliance party—the party of Mussolini—there are ultra-right-wing fascist tendencies. The recent emergence of support for Jean Marie Le Pen in France and the Vlaams Blok in Belgium is extremely worrying and we should put...

Turkey and the EU (15 Dec 2004)

Lord Rea: ...and entrench the gains in human rights that they have already made. They also ask for recognition of ethnic diversity in the country as a whole. For this to happen, a change in Turkey's rather Mussolini-like constitution may be necessary. Three weeks ago an international conference was held in Brussels entitled "The EU, Turkey and the Kurds", one session of which I chaired. The final...

School Discipline (13 Dec 2004)

John Pugh: ...poet, apparently for writing an essay at Westminster school condemning flogging. I looked into the question of whether any politicians of note were expelled, but the only one I came across was Mussolini, who was expelled for stabbing a pupil, an event which, strangely enough, did not stop him becoming a primary school teacher later in his career. Best practice requires an emphasis on...

Scottish Parliament: Turning the Tide against Nazism ( 9 Jun 2004)

Tommy Sheridan: ...that Franco's military coup was the beginning of the march of fascism across the whole of Europe. Unfortunately, because the rest of the world ignored what was happening in Spain, Hitler and Mussolini were emboldened to begin their march across Europe. Those from Scotland who volunteered in 1936 to fight against the fascist coup in Spain and who, in so doing, gave their lives deserve...

Eritrea and Ethiopia ( 4 Feb 2004)

Lord Howell of Guildford: My Lords, would the Minister agree that this dispute in the Badame region goes back a long way, certainly to the time of Mussolini and probably before that, and that there has been a long string of undertakings and agreements—the US-Rwanda peace plan; UN Resolution 1226; as well as the Algiers agreement that we are talking about? Would she accept that it is going to take a lot to persuade...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (15 Dec 2003)

David Winnick: ..., Saddam, a victory for humanity? Is it not the case that had he been captured by some Iraqis rather than the Americans, his life might well have been ended immediately, which is what happened to Mussolini in 1945?

Cuba (26 Jun 2003)

Baroness Crawley: .... Mass demonstrations were orchestrated outside the embassies of Spain and Italy in Havana. Castro has hurled personal insults at Prime Ministers Aznar and Berlusconi, portraying them as Hitler and Mussolini respectively. The EU as a whole have been labelled "moral dwarves" and "economic conmen". The Cuban Government's retrospective attempts to justify the crackdown have been entirely...

Patient (Assisted Dying) Bill [HL] ( 6 Jun 2003)

Earl Russell: My Lords, these practices were indulged in by Mussolini—

Deferred Division (12 Mar 2003)

Martyn Jones: ...those in their back yards to let go of the 1930s attitude of the founder of Welsh nationalism, Saunders Lewis. He hated the English-speaking people of these islands and had regular contact with Mussolini.

Scottish Parliament: Firefighters' Dispute (29 Jan 2003)

Tommy Sheridan: ...comments yesterday on the dispute were unhelpful, deliberately provocative and profoundly undemocratic? Will his Executive have the courage to stand up and tell Mr Prescott loud and clear that his Mussolini-type tactics are not welcome here in Scotland? Does he agree that we should continue to discuss and negotiate with free trade unionists instead of talking about imposing deals over...

House of Lords Reform (21 Jan 2003)

Mr Clive Soley: ...—an act of retirement. My hon. Friend the Member for Cannock Chase made the case well in respect of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 but there are worse examples. Adolf Hitler and Mussolini were elected. Members of two democratically elected chambers in the United States repeatedly voted for the death of no fewer than 90 million north American Indians—and did so...

Gibraltar (10 Dec 2002)

Lord Monson: ...However, problems are not always inevitable. Alsace and Lorraine were not problems in 1940, nor were the Baltic states or the eastern part of the Alpes Maritimes, merely because Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini respectively wanted to get their hands on those areas. The Falklands were not a problem in 1982 when Galtieri wanted to grab them; nor was Kuwait 10 years later because Saddam Hussein...

Debate on the Address — [First Day] (13 Nov 2002)

Mr Harry Barnes: .... The Queen's Speech contained these three little words: Xconstructive foreign policy", but the fact that the Government are in favour of such a policy does not tell us anything. Woodrow Wilson and Mussolini could have claimed at the same time to favour constructive foreign policies that were entirely different and conflicting. The aspect of foreign policy that worries me tremendously is...
