Modernisation of the House of Commons (29 Oct 2002)

Gerald Kaufman: ...for mandatory time limits. Let us imagine it is 1938. Winston Churchill gets up: he inveighs against Chamberlain, he inveighs against appeasement, he inveighs against Hitler and he inveighs against Mussolini. He says that we must be prepared for a second world war. While he is developing his argument, Mr. Deputy Speaker says, XOrder. The right hon. Gentleman has come to the end of his 12...

Iraq (24 Sep 2002)

Lord Marlesford: of world peace. Moreover, a failure by the Security Council to pass a resolution to put real pressure on Saddam could be as damaging as the failure by the League of Nations to act against Mussolini apropos of Abyssinia in 1935. Pending the internal overthrow of Saddam—eventually, he will be overthrown internally—we must keep him in his box. He must, of course, be subjected to...

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

Stuart Bell: ...whatsoever in the United Nations. The Foreign Secretary spoke of the failure of the League of Nations to act at the time of Abyssinia. We saw the consequences of that, in the form of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. As the Foreign Secretary said, the United Nations was built on the ashes of the second world war, and to prevent a failure similar to that of the League of Nations, a...

Education Bill (17 Jun 2002)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...of humility is needed. It might also be pointed out that in the 20th century some of the worst tyrannies and ideologies, such as fascism and communism, involved people such as Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini, who came with no faith. Certainly none of the tyrannical, totalitarian policies that they promoted were based on religious extremism. Therefore, we all need to approach this issue with a...

Racism (Welsh Politics) ( 7 May 2002)

Wayne David: ...tabulated. We have only to look at some of the writings of Saunders Lewis, the founder of Plaid Cymru, to recognise the truth of that. He believed that he could embrace the corporatist ideas of Mussolini, with whom he was enamoured. He certainly had plenty of time for the racist remarks of various fascist elements arising in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. Let me make it clear that he was...

Rail Performance (20 Mar 2002)

Viscount Bledisloe: My Lords, is the noble and learned Lord aware that the only government who have had any success in making trains run on time was that of Benito Mussolini? Is it the policy of either his party or the party opposite to induce a dictatorship such as that of Benito Mussolini?

Welsh Affairs (28 Feb 2002)

Don Touhig: ...the Labour party, and talked about socialism. Let me tell him this: when people from my party were fighting fascists in Spain, the founder of his party was declaring his admiration for Hitler and Mussolini.

House of Lords Reform (10 Jan 2002)

Lord Jenkins of Hillhead: ..., Carducci, the great orator, and Marconi, the great telephonist. They were all members—a spectacular list. But I am not sure how great a part they played and they certainly did not prevent Mussolini coming to power. I turn to a rather more modern, and perhaps more pedestrian, example. Harold Wilson, with whom I sometimes agreed and sometimes disagreed, did not finish up very well with...

House of Lords Reform ( 9 Jan 2002)

Lord Dahrendorf: ...the second chamber". Let me add to the arguments of practicality and of principle deployed there the reminder that such corporatism was of course the essence of most versions of fascism. In 1939, Mussolini replaced the Italian Chamber of Deputies with the Camera dei Fasci e delle Corporazioni in which 22 defined "Estates" were represented. The purpose was to ensure that the "Leader"...

Government of Wales Act 1998 ( 5 Dec 2001)

Mr Llew Smith: .... Anti-English prejudices have run throughout their party since its birth. Saunders Lewis, a founding member and former leader, saw the Jews and the English as enemies, while admiring Hitler and Mussolini. [Interruption.] Of course, the nationalists do not want to hear this. Of Hitler, Saunders Lewis declared: "At once he fulfilled his promise—a promise which was greatly mocked by the...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (25 Jun 2001)

Lord McCarthy: with ideology--"I have principles, you have half-baked ideas and they have ideologies". Ideology is a Janus-word. It conjures up images of what was done in Stalin's name, or Lenin, or Hitler, or Mussolini. For that reason, I ask the Government to think carefully about why they want to pursue this line and then to give us a sensible explanation. I do not ask for such an explanation...

Scottish Parliament: European Union ( 9 May 2001)

Irene Oldfather: .... We are all aware of the role that is played by Jörg Haider in Austria. Add to that the emergence in the current Italian campaign of Gianfranco Fini's neo-fascist National Alliance, the party of Mussolini. On Europe day, we must be vigilant to the threat that racism and xenophobia pose to decent-minded people, who must stand together against such extremism, in favour of solidarity and...

Bill Presented: Consideration of Lords Amendments and further messages from the Lord ( 7 Feb 2001)

Mr Paul Tyler: ..., as the hon. Gentleman will have to acknowledge. I see the Conservative Whip, the hon. Member for Cotswold (Mr. Clifton-Brown), nodding. Thirdly, no one could accuse the Government of being like Mussolini—the trains do not run on time. All hon. Members who have participated in this short debate have had the disadvantage of not being a member of the Select Committee on the Modernisation...

Public Bill Committee: Homes Bill: Clause 7 - Contents of sellers' packs (23 Jan 2001)

Nick Raynsford: ..., possibly in green ink. They quote them at great length, as if it added further substance to their arguments. Unfortunately for the Conservatives, Mr. Holt's comparison of the Government with Mussolini is truly extraordinary, given that the first attempt to introduce criminal law in this sector was the previous Conservative Government's Property Misdescriptions Act 1991. In that...

Security and Intelligence Agencies (22 Jun 2000)

Julian Lewis: ...the Security Service could easily afford to lift the curtain. In the previous debate on the subject on 2 November 1998, I referred to the fact that Mosley's British Union of Fascists was funded by Mussolini. We now know that, as early as 1935, special branch and MI5 had verified that that was happening on a large scale. It should not have taken until late 1983 for the historical record to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Memorandum of Understanding and Supplementary Agreements ( 5 Jun 2000)

Mr Eamonn ONeill: ...enquiries with that eminent librarian, he would know that the word concordat has had many uses and interpretations since then, even among peoples who have never heard of the Franco-Prussian War or Mussolini, or perhaps even the Pope. It is out of date, and it reflects, as I have said, some of the other ideas that we are constantly getting from the DUP. Mr Paisley Jnr also referred to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Roads Congestion (11 Jan 2000)

Keith Hill: ...I had the great pleasure of reading an article that he had written in Sunday Business, entitled "How I would make the trains run on time". It was a fascinating piece of work from our own home-grown Mussolini—the II Duce of the home counties. The article contained 14 proposals, all of which involved additional Government expenditure—from a member of the Conservative party, which is...

Iraq (17 Dec 1998)

Sir Ray Whitney: ...and statesmen of the time, it was hoped that something could evolve. We all know now that it failed. It is commonplace to deride it for America's non-participation and its failure to stand up to Mussolini and Hitler. After the second world war, we tried again. Here, too, we ran into the problems of the cold war and the veto of the permanent members of the Security Council, and so on. In...

Security and Intelligence Agencies ( 2 Nov 1998)

Julian Lewis: ...when Colin Cross was writing his account—definitive at the time—of the fascist movement in Britain, he was still unable to say for certain that the fascists had been funded during the 1930s by Mussolini. It should not have taken the security services until November and December of 1983 to reveal special branch and Security Service reports that show that Mosley had indeed been the paid...

Orders of the Day — New clause 28: Register of Concordats (31 Mar 1998)

John McAllion:, I should have thought that, as Scotland's leading Roman Catholic, the right hon. Gentleman would know all about concordats. Does he not recall the concordats that the papacy entered into with Mussolini and Hitler?
