Consolidated Fund Bill: Regional Select Committee (London) (14 Dec 2009)

David Burrowes: My hon. Friend talks about the election, and obviously Boris Johnson was elected as Mayor for London. Is not the concern that the genie of devolved government has got out of the bottle and that that genie is now blue, in the form of Boris Johnson? The problem is that the Government want to put that genie back in the bottle, but they cannot do that and so we have a costly, expensive,...

Brexit: Discussions with the European Union - Question (20 Jun 2019)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, the various backers of Boris Johnson, such as Dominic Raab and David Davis, have backed him on the basis that we must leave the EU on 31 October. However, in the debate on Monday the putative future Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, refused to give such an absolute guarantee. He thought that leaving on 31 October was only “eminently feasible”. Could the Minister tell us what...

Business of the House (10 May 2012)

Bob Blackman: I am sure my right hon. Friend is aware that last week voter turnout in London was 7% above the national average, and I am sure the whole House will wish to congratulate Mayor Boris Johnson on his re-election and Ken Livingstone on his retirement from front-line politics. Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on devolving much more power to the Mayor of London so that Londoners can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Finance (London) (26 Feb 2008)

Hazel Blears: ...is through democracy, and people will have the chance to vote on 1 May. It is interesting that when Michael Portillo was recently asked who he would vote for in the mayoral election, Ken or Boris, he said, "More choices, please", so he will not be backing Boris. He also said that it would perhaps be rather good for the right hon. Member for Witney (Mr. Cameron) to lose the next election....

Scottish Parliament: General Election (Private Conversations) (11 Dec 2019)

...the 62 per cent who voted to remain in the European Union. Jackson Carlaw used to believe in and argue for remaining in the European Union, as well, until, of course, he got his instructions from Boris Johnson. He is now a born-again Brexiteer. The difference between me and Jackson Carlaw is that he thinks that it is okay for Boris Johnson to dictate Scotland’s future to the people of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Eamonn McCann: Let me deal first with the nonsense that was talked earlier today in the Chamber about people on the left who advised a vote to leave — that such people must be in alignment with and supporting Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and the rest of that crew across the water. That is absolutely untrue. People Before Profit is quite able to articulate its own particular position, which is different...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Ulez: Ulez (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...improvements to enable the expansion to take place. That is wrong and that will impact the health of Londoners. However, there is good news because the next Prime Minister is probably going to be Boris Johnson and Boris Johnson of course is against expansion of Heathrow and is in favour of air quality in London, we hope. I am hoping there will be some progress in this area once he...

Scottish Parliament: Post-Brexit Trade Deal (28 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ..., if agreements were done with drug companies, for example, to extend patents, which I believe is mentioned in the paperwork that was leaked yesterday. That is the risk to our health service if Boris Johnson and the Tories get their way. I think that the priority for people in Scotland over the next couple of weeks is to make sure that Boris Johnson does not get his way, we get him out of...

Cyclists: Deaths — Question (21 Oct 2010)

Lord Janner of Braunstone: I thank the noble Earl for his Answer. I am sure the whole House will join me in congratulating Mayor Boris Johnson on launching the Barclays bike hire scheme, which has recently had its millionth journey. However, does the noble Earl share my concern for the safety of the scheme, which has placed an additional 5,000 bicycles on our roads in London, with most journeys taking place without a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (1 Jul 2015)

Harriet Harman: ...is different coming out of No. 10, because it is briefing that it is not going to happen. It looks like the Prime Minister has been overruled by the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson); he should tell him that he is not the leader of the Tory party yet. Will the Prime Minister stand up for Britain’s interests or will he just be bullied by Boris?

Airport Expansion: East Anglia — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (12 Jan 2016)

Douglas Chapman: ...the right hon. Gentleman’s constituency, and I am grateful for the services provided from that airport. It is also a shame and a great pity that the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is not here to support the proposal for “Boris island.” Perhaps he is too busy playing whiff-whaff—I do not know what he does in his spare time. The “Boris island”...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (22 May 2019)

...to oppose Brexit; now she supports Brexit. She used to demand that we stay in the single market; now she wants us to be taken out of the single market. Of course, Ruth Davidson also used to call Boris Johnson names that I cannot repeat in the chamber. Now, she is cosying up to Boris Johnson—the arch-Brexiteer. I cannot help but think that it is a pity that flip-flopping is not an Olympic...

Scottish Parliament: Austerity (7 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: Yes, I do. It is a serious issue. When Boris Johnson comes to Scotland for a fleeting visit, which I think he is describing as a regional visit, no doubt to give the Scottish Tories their marching orders for the remainder of the election campaign, he should take the opportunity to apologise for Tory austerity, for Tory welfare cuts, for the mess and the chaos of Brexit, and for the misery...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nuclear Weapons (Russia) (27 Oct 1992)

John Reid: Can the Secretary of State explain in what way he thinks that he is helping Russia's nuclear de-escalation or the political position of Boris Yeltsin when Britain is escalating its nuclear capacity in strategic ballistic missiles by 250 per cent. and at the same time absolutely refusing to respond to Boris Yeltsin's offer of a nuclear moratorium? Does he not realise that that undermines the...

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

Lord Adonis: My Lords, the bad news is that Boris Johnson says he is contemplating no deal; the good news is that he does not really believe it. He knows that it would be disastrous and that Parliament will not agree to it. More to the point, he does not really believe in Brexit itself. He was against Brexit; then he was for it. He was against Mrs May’s deal; then he was for it. Anyone who knows Boris...

Russia: Mr Litvinenko (26 Feb 2007)

Lord Chidgey: ..., is the Minister aware that, in some quarters in Moscow, the Government are being accused of double standards in dealing with requests for the extradition of certain Russian citizens, such as Boris Berezovsky and the Chechen leader, Ahmed Zakayev, while at the same time it is claimed that we are happy to deport suspected al-Qaeda terrorists back to their own countries? In that regard, can...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Knife Crime: Knife Crime (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...years, which showed no link between industrial-scale stop-and-search and a reduction in crime. Point number one. Point number two. The reduction of industrial-scale stop-and-search began when Boris Johnson was the Mayor and Theresa May was the PM, and I supported them in relation to not using industrial-scale, indiscriminate stop-and-stop. There was an 80% reduction when Boris Johnson...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Taverne: My Lords, what a delightful speech. There was a lot of wisdom in it. Let me cast caution to the winds and start by making three predictions. First, Boris will not get his deal. This now seems an almost uncontroversial forecast, judging by all the comments from Brussels. Secondly, any challenge to the Benn Act, which the Government seem to ignore, will fail for the reasons advanced by the...

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Ann Clwyd: I am proud to have been a Member of the European Parliament—I was one of the first to be elected, in 1979, along with Boris’s father, who I do not think shares Boris’s views any longer. The Prime Minister has reflected today on the role of the European Parliament. I am sure she will agree that while it is one of three important institutions with which negotiations will take place, at...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Truscott: ...electorate a say on the form of Brexit now proposed. As a historian, though not as distinguished a one as many noble Lords in the Chamber today, I will make a couple of historical allusions. First, Boris Johnson should beware of what happened to Charles I when he tried to bypass Parliament and rule from 1629 to 1640 with his eleven years’ tyranny, a historical period mentioned by the...
