Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Article 50) (7 Feb 2017)

Neil Findlay: Okay, I withdraw it. This Parliament is not representative of Scotland in relation to Brexit—and I say that as someone who voted to remain. I say to all members of this Parliament and the UK Parliament that we all knew the rules of the referendum before a single vote was cast: there was no Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish veto; and there was no separate Scottish vote. There was one...

Scottish Parliament: Caterpillar Plant Occupation (30th Anniversary) (18 Jan 2017)

Neil Findlay: ...but relevant to the times in which we live, in which corporate power and, all too often, corporate greed have much more clout than the people or their democratically elected representatives. As the Brexit debate rages, I hear people mouth platitudes about the apparent benefits that we all derive from so-called free trade and the free movement of capital. Well, Caterpillar is but one...

Scottish Parliament: Protection and Promotion of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (European Union) (10 Jan 2017)

Neil Findlay: On free movement of labour, has Mr Ross clarified with his colleagues at Westminster whether, under the Tory plans for Brexit, he will still be able to exercise his right to freedom of movement in order to referee football matches abroad to give him a second income?

Scottish Parliament: Environment and Climate Change (European Union Referendum) (27 Oct 2016)

Neil Findlay: Each of these Brexit debates degenerates into project fear on steroids. I have grave concerns about some of the things that will happen after Brexit, but will the cabinet secretary turn her mind to some of the opportunities that may arise from it?

Scottish Parliament: Environment and Climate Change (European Union Referendum) (27 Oct 2016)

Neil Findlay: ...to stop a democratically elected Parliament deciding its own policy on an issue such as fracking. I am raising these concerns—I will continue to raise many more—as the debate over the terms of Brexit unfolds, because the political class in Scotland is coalescing around a narrative that seeks to frustrate the democratic will of the people who voted in a referendum not as separate...

Scottish Parliament: Red Meat Exports (Brexit) (6 Oct 2016)

Neil Findlay: I have no doubt that there may be uncertain times ahead following Brexit, but does the minister agree that Joan McAlpine’s daily apocalyptic predictions on any issue—[ Interruption .]—some with the most tenuous links to the EU, are in danger of turning a very serious matter into what some might call project fear on steroids?

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Neil Findlay: ...how the political class—particularly here in Scotland—has very narrowly and uncritically framed the narrative that has emerged. It is a narrative that says that on every level—every level—Brexit is a bad thing and that we must do anything and everything to remain within the EU and the nirvana of the single market; a single market that, if we are to believe the spin, is the magic...
