Local Sporting Heroes (13 Nov 2018)

Chris Evans: ...around. Among others, we heard from the chairman of Matchroom Sport, Barry Hearn, who told us that inspirational role models are absolutely key to turning people’s lives around. We heard how Mike Tyson, the famous world heavyweight boxer, started fighting. He was in a correctional institute in New York state when Muhammad Ali came along, and watching Ali perform and say his rhymes for...

[Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (13 Nov 2018)

Iain Duncan Smith: ply their trade if Uber was not there. It would be a very different game. I want to mention some constituents who have seen me about this issue: Ron Nicholson, Martin Franks, Mark Diggin, Steven Tyson and Trevor Board. They are all straightforward people who are trying to earn a living. London’s black cab system is arguably the most admired in the world. It is on all the posters, and...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation: Fishing Industry: Visas for Non-EEA Citizens (11 Jul 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: Yes, that does come to the heart of it. It is the question of regarding deck hands as unskilled labour. When I last met the Minister, I reminded her of Mike Tyson’s great expression that everyone has a plan until they are punched in the face. It is a bit like that for deck hands and their skill level. Everybody is seen as being unskilled until they are out in a force 10 gale with the trawl...

Petition - Ulverston Post Office (26 Apr 2017)

John Woodcock: ...Government’s latest reforms. There has been an extraordinary response from the town. Well over half of all the residents have already signed the petition. My particular thanks go to Mr Malcolm Tyson, who has probably gathered more than half these signatures on his own. He tells me he has walked more than 500 miles to save Ulverston post office, and I hazard that he would probably walk...

Brexit: Options for Trade (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (2 Mar 2017)

Lord Whitty: this House this very week. I would like to put on record in this debate the work that she has done for us. Of all the experts that were going to be quoted in this debate, I had not expected Mike Tyson to be one of them. However, knowing how the EU negotiators react is an important missing part of the jigsaw in most of this debate. There was a point in one of our debates, and the noble...

Restorative Justice — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (12 Jan 2017)

Oliver Heald: ...justice can be a positive experience and empowering for victims, as was mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Henley—I would not necessarily suggest that they go in for a fight with Mike Tyson. The point that my hon. Friend made was quite right, however, that restorative justice can change the way in which individuals feel about what was a dreadful experience for them. Restorative...

Scottish Parliament: Doon Valley Boxing Club (8 Dec 2016)

Brian Whittle: ...I am concerned—I decided to bring my training kit with me and take part in a session. I went in with a plan: I joined in with the under-12 age group. However, as that great educator Iron Mike Tyson once said: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” After a shadow boxing session and six two-minute rounds of hitting the pads, followed by circuits, I left the building...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Bulk interception warrants (7 Jun 2016)

Wendy Morton: ...people, but unlike my hon. Friend the Member for North Dorset (Simon Hoare) I sought neither inspiration nor cake from Kipling. Instead, I turned to the American scientist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson, who wrote very perceptively: “Any time scientists disagree, it's because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves...

Black and Minority Ethnic People: Workplace Issues - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2016)

Lord Bilimoria: does. David Landsman, head of Tata Ltd in the UK, said that there is a clause in the Tata code of conduct about equality and non-discrimination on any grounds. In 2003, I was a member of the Tyson task force on the recruitment and development of non-executive directors. The noble Baroness, Lady Bottomley, spoke about diverse teams. That task force, 13 years ago, said very clearly said...

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Sue Hayman: ...farms have been flooded, the situation is desperate. The Rural Payments Agency said it would prioritise farms that had suffered from flooding, but that has simply not happened. One farmer, Susan Tyson, has contacted me. She farms at Underskiddaw near Keswick and she has had nothing, although her application went in last May. She said that every time she asks about it, she is told that...

NHS (Charitable Trusts Etc) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Bird: for 50 cents and sell it for a dollar”. Gordon said, “Why are you doing this?” The bloke said, “Well, I’ve been in and out of prison and I come from Brownsville”. That is where Mike Tyson comes from and you do not get out of Brownsville without being a sportsman or having a criminal record. That was how predictable the failure rate was for that particular part of New York....

Business of the House (3 Dec 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...the Government finally recognising that fact. How much time will we be given for the debate on cross-border co-operation, which will also take place on Tuesday? As you will have seen, Mr Speaker, Tyson Fury won the world heavyweight boxing title last weekend, and has now been nominated for the title of BBC sports personality of the year. I hope that he does not win. You may also have seen...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Subregional Stadia Programme for Soccer (30 Nov 2015)

Carál Ní Chuilín: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. It would be remiss of me not to start by congratulating Tyson Fury on becoming a world boxing champion. Comhgairdeas. I am very pleased to announce the launch of the consultation on the subregional stadia programme for soccer. This Executive-agreed programme aims to meet the strategic needs of football. On 10 March 2011, the Executive endorsed an...

Bombardment of the Hartlepools (16 Dec 2014)

Iain Wright: ...originally meant to last an hour—was curtailed to 42 minutes. The shortening of the attack, thanks to the bravery of the gun men, probably prevented further death, injury and damage. Gunner Harry Tyson, of 17 Rowell street, was a member of the gun teams at the Heugh, and he recalled how something profoundly British took place—peace or war, there is nothing like a good, hot cup of...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (11 Dec 2014)

Witnesses: Kathryn Tyson, Director of International Health and Public Health Policy, Department of Health ; Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for International Development, Liz Ditchburn, Director General Policy and Louise Thomas, Head of Trade for Development, Department for International Development

Bills Presented: Ukraine, Middle East, North Africa and Security (10 Sep 2014)

Gisela Stuart: .... This would assist more strategic decisions on why, when and how to intervene.” It is right to say that in the current world we cannot have the perfect plan. As the great strategist Mike Tyson put it, “You have a plan and then someone punches you in the face.” We can respond to being punched in the face in a way that is strategic only if we have some framework within which we...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Immigration (11 Dec 2013)

Mark Harper: ...rules. On the subject of those who break the law and want to come to the UK, I would like to make a bit of a public service announcement. I noticed in media coverage this morning that Mike Tyson, who wants to visit the UK, is not able to come here because we changed the immigration rules for those guilty of serious offences. A column in The Sunsays that he received a “knock out...

Department for Communities and Local Government: General Matters (26 Mar 2013)

Gareth Thomas: ...them to use their influence to support such an investigation. There is, too, the fiasco of the five points deducted for messing up the registration paperwork of the London Welsh scrum half, Tyson Keats, even though no one disputes his entitlement to seek employment in the UK, his eligibility to seek work as a professional rugby player or indeed—should the call come—his eligibility to...

Ankylosing Spondylitis (25 Feb 2013)

Huw Irranca-Davies: ...couple of weeks, I resorted to using a stick, then two sticks, and then switched to crutches a few days later. Progressively, I also looked like I felt—like I had been through 10 rounds with Mike Tyson after a week without sleep. Finally, for one particular vote it took me nearly 15 minutes to walk from one end of the voting Lobby to the other, which is the length of this Chamber. I was...
