Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Progress reports (18 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: deal. The default should be to revoke article 50, not to impose a no-deal Brexit. There would be a democratic constitutional crisis were the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) to prorogue Parliament. Last week, I said that, given the fact that a clear majority of MPs are opposed to the UK leaving without a deal, the Prorogation of Parliament to facilitate...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...—a parade of wannabe comedians trying their best to recreate Freedonia in their own image, with the biggest joke of all reserved for when the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) enters No. 10, perhaps by zipslide. But at least Freedonia was fictitious. Of course it would be easy for those on the Treasury Bench, now or at some point after the right hon....

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill (8 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...of politics on these islands. Indeed, it has cost the Prime Minister her job and looks likely to lumber us with the former Foreign Secretary, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Despite the Conservatives’ hustings over in Northern Ireland, the complete ignorance shown by the would-be Prime Ministers has been shocking, as the hon. Member for North Dorset...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Leaving the EU: Talks on Restoring Devolution (3 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: As the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is likely to have promised the Secretary of State’s position to about six or seven people, this may well be her last appearance at Northern Ireland questions. Having now spent considerable time in Northern Ireland knowing the damage that a no-deal Brexit would inflict, will she commit to voting against a no-deal Brexit...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...doing electoral maths on the back of a fag packet. If we crash out of the EU, the Tories and Labour will be shamed for decades to come. The right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is not here this evening, but he claimed that a no-deal Brexit is closest to what the public voted for. What an utterly ridiculous assertion that is when leading leave campaign figures...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — Regional Airports (2 Feb 2016)

Gavin Newlands: ...the past 10 years. The expansion will have ramifications for the rest of the UK, particularly for the regional airports. I have an unlikely ally in the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), who has argued that the expansion will have a significant impact on Scotland and that we should not be disfranchised. I therefore ask the Minister to assure us today that the...
