Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Lord Hain: ...also honour her mother as one of the suffragettes of the Church of England. On the same morning that the UK Supreme Court judged the Prime Minister to have tried unlawfully to prorogue Parliament, Boris Johnson outlined to a New York business audience his vision of a post-Brexit Britain. It was one of the UK undercutting European tax rates and adopting lower regulatory standards than those...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointment Functions) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Hain: ...Donaldson say, again on the “Today” programme recently, they need to be careful what they wish for. They may well find that English nationalists—that is who we seem to have in power under Boris Johnson at the moment—are no more sympathetic to their cause than Irish nationalists in the long term. They must know that the proof of this came earlier this year when the then Back-Bench...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Hain: My Lords, I appeal to both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt—more in hope than in expectation, I fear—to read the cogent, cool and indisputable speech of the noble Lord, Lord Kerr.

Trade Bill - Second Reading (11 Sep 2018)

As they confirmed recently, Boris Johnson, David Davis, Liam Fox, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Iain Duncan Smith and the rest—and quite possibly the noble Lord, Lord Lilley—have no plan for their cherished Brexit. Meanwhile,...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Hain: ...unique, for 1 million reasons. It was clear what leave supporters were voting against, but nobody knew what sort of alternative future they were voting for. None of their leaders explained this. Boris Johnson, for example, began by insisting that remaining in the single market was essential, then moved to supporting a Canadian-type trade deal. When the deficiencies of that option were...

European Council - Statement (29 Jun 2016)

Lord Hain: ...yesterday the Prime Minister was the first in Britain’s history to attend a European Council without a clue as to what the British agenda was? Given that his possible, perhaps likely, successor Boris Johnson wrote a newspaper article on Monday saying that we needed to stay in the single market, only for his aide to say yesterday that he was too tired when he wrote it and did not really...
