Spending Round 2019 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (25 Sep 2019)

Baroness Stroud: ...However, where this money will go and how it is to be spent will be crucial in determining how successful an investment this will prove. As the Prime Minister stood on the steps of No. 10, amid the Brexit narrative, one recurring theme of his speech struck me. “We will level up”, he said, over and over again. He has inherited a deeply uneven and divided Britain, where two halves of the...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Stroud: ...the future holds nothing but economic ruin, some fear an economic flatlining or stagnation, and others still believe in the sunlit uplands of global trade if only we could get to the other side of Brexit.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2018)

Baroness Stroud: ...has repeatedly expressed this afternoon, that is patently not the case. Most people in Northern Ireland believe that there is a good chance that devolved government will be restored once the main Brexit decisions have been made.

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Stroud: ...get this right, it could become a model for other border arrangements around the world. We owe it to all the people of the UK, regardless of how they voted last June, to ensure the best possible Brexit.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Baroness Stroud: ...young serving the older generation and the older generation sharing their stories with the young so that wisdom goes down through the ages, or the unity of purpose around a challenge the size of Brexit that we need to get right to protect this nation for future generations. Many quote Jo Cox—we have more that unites us than divides us—but then immediately reach for points of division....

Populism and Nationalism - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Baroness Stroud: ...in the Members’ register of interests—called 48:52 Healing a Divided Nation, we looked at what some identify as populism and at what motivated some of the 52% to vote the way they did in the Brexit vote. The story of 48:52 is not just a story of the rise of populism. The decision to leave the European Union was a bold and unequivocal statement for millions of people who wanted to...
