Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Neil Findlay: ...and MPs to exercise for a term of that Parliament, be it four, five or any other number of years. Throughout the Brexit referendum and since, we have heard much comment and spurious rhetoric from Johnson, Gove and the rest about taking back control, the need to restore UK sovereignty, the desire to make our own democratic decisions, the rights of the people and the primacy of the House of...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Neil Findlay: ..., which is a good thing. In the House of Commons, 21 Tories stood up against that march. However, in this Parliament, every one of the Tory MSPs who cheered on Theresa May’s deal now cheer on Boris Johnson’s attempt to get no deal. Not one of them has any credibility or backbone.

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

Neil Findlay: ...the Tories are running, but is a serious threat to the livelihoods of thousands of people across the communities of Scotland and the UK. Of course, it will not be Jackson Carlaw, Adam Tomkins or Boris Johnson who suffer the consequences. Oh no: for the privileged few, things will carry on as they were. We saw that when Jacob Rees-Mogg, of all people, with all the brass neck that has been...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Preparations) (6 Feb 2019)

Neil Findlay: I thank the cabinet secretary for the early sight of his statement. I am delighted that Mr Tomkins recognises Jeremy Corbyn as a statesman, which is not a charge that could ever be levelled against Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Liam Fox or any of the others who got us into this mess in the first place. As Brexit approaches, the anxieties of businesses, people in industry and workers grow. We...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration (5 Dec 2018)

Neil Findlay: ...sunny climes with his trotters up as chaos reigns. It will not be Cameron whose rights at work will be lost. It will not be Jacob Rees-Mogg who is unable to afford his children’s schools fees, or Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, who will still rake it in from gullible newspaper editors paying him for writing his ill-informed drivel. For the establishment clique, life will go on almost untainted...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill (21 Mar 2018)

Neil Findlay: It is always depressing to follow Boris Johnson, Presiding Officer. This bill has gone through Parliament at breakneck speed. From the outset, if we are honest, many of us have not been comfortable with how it has been handled and rushed. We do not think, despite the minister’s claims to the contrary, that the bill has had the scrutiny that it deserves from members or, indeed, the wider...

Scottish Parliament: Undercover Policing (6 Jan 2016)

Neil Findlay: .... We seem to be in a unique position in which the Scottish Government is for once saying, when there has been encroachment on its patch by the UK, “This is nothing to do with us, guv. Go and see Boris Johnson, or whoever the bloody mayor of London is these days.” What is going on here today is bizarre, Presiding Officer. I wonder whether you can ask the minister to clarify the position.
