Business of the House: Points of Order (8 Apr 2019)

Rupa Huq: the 2015 general election aggressively manhandling me for having the temerity to go up and speak to the then Mayor of London, now the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). I am usually overjoyed at the success of my constituents on the national stage, and I understand the rough and tumble of politics, but is it really appropriate to appoint an individual who...

Forensic Science Regulator Bill: Garden Bridge: Funding (15 Mar 2019)

Rupa Huq: ...on the radio first thing in the morning over our cornflakes either. Many of the so-called great and good are implicated in this whole affair. The right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is among them. The national treasure Joanna Lumley, who had some success with the Ghurka issue, had less success in this instance. The project had been brewing since at least...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Rupa Huq: ...and footage of the fracas that ensued when I crossed paths with the Conservative canvass team, which included the former Mayor of London, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). It was reported on “Newsnight”, and the newspapers called what happened to me “manhandling”; I think a lawyer would call it assault.

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Rupa Huq: .... It makes no sense. These are people who need support, not clobbering. We have a new Mayor of London, so I am optimistic, but under the watch of the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) we have seen two out of every three women turned away from London refuges. That is for reasons of capacity, before we even get into the whole “no recourse to public funds”...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Immigration Detention (10 Sep 2015)

Rupa Huq: ...on a psychology degree. She is rebuilding her life and working with Citizens UK on these issues, but she is still haunted by her experiences. The hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), the Mayor of London—I am not sure which is his part-time position—is not present, but in his 2008 incarnation he stood on a platform calling for an amnesty for all illegal...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

Rupa Huq: ...roots, they are lost to Slough or beyond, because housing in west London is too prohibitively costly for them to stay. The current Mayor of London, the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), is notable by his absence—where is he when you need him? I have had my brushes with him, it must be said, but it was he who claimed that not only property prices but benefit...
