Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Services (Yorkshire and London) (6 Feb 2014)

Dennis Skinner: Is it not a fact that it takes two sides to create industrial action? The problem with the Tory Front Bench is that they dare not attack Boris Johnson for not conducting talks, because half of the Tory MPs want Boris Johnson to be their next leader. That is the reason.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Government Housing Priorities: Government Housing Priorities (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The reason why I was really pleased when the leader of the Conservatives asked about honesty in politics is I assumed he was talking about Boris Johnson. If we want honesty in politics, then I would assume that Boris Johnson will keep his promise and carry through some of the stuff in the London Finance Commission.

Questions to the Mayor of London — New Prime Minister and Heathrow Airport: New Prime Minister and Heathrow Airport (27 Sep 2019)

Siân Berry: Former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said in 2015 that he would: “lie down in front of those bulldozers and stop the building, stop the construction of that third runway,” at Heathrow Airport. Since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, I have called on him to stick to this pledge. Have you?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: I know that my noble friend is not very keen on the Foreign Secretary, and that he has made a number of attacks on Boris Johnson in this House, including calling on the Government to sack him. I point out that Boris Johnson played an important part in the referendum campaign and that the people voted—

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

Sadiq Khan: Yes, and to reassure you, when Boris Johnson was Mayor he agreed with the Government on this deal. It was only when the Secretary of State changed from Patrick McLoughlin [MP] to Chris Grayling [MP] that the Government performed a U‑turn. I am optimistic about the chances of this happening sooner rather than later with Boris Johnson, the former Mayor, as the Prime Minister.

Metropolitan Police Service — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Feb 2013)

John Cryer: ...whatever. Response times will lengthen, and people will be put in danger. That will be a green light for burglars in the Wanstead part of my constituency. That goes directly against what Boris Johnson promised. People in Wanstead and throughout London want to know what Boris Johnson does not understand about the word “no”.

European Union: Trading Arrangements - Question (30 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, at the time of the referendum, Boris Johnson, now our Prime Minister, assured voters that frictionless trade would continue. That has now been completely forgotten, and he has said recently that we have to accept that there will be barriers to trade as part of what we have to get used to. Is the Minister’s commitment on dynamic alignment the same sort of possibly short-term...

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...

Scottish Parliament: Tax and Public Spending (5 Feb 2020)

Stuart McMillan: I could not agree more. We know that Holyrood “doesn’t matter one jot” to Boris Johnson, although I am happy to hear from any Tory who wants to stand up now and defend Boris on that. Today, the Tories are lauding Boris Johnson, but I wonder whether they will laud him for his thoughts on the Parliament. I welcome the fact that 55 per cent of Scottish taxpayers pay less income tax than...

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...

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...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (5 Sep 2019)

...that, if the Conservatives had any confidence whatsoever in that message, Ruth Davidson would still be standing where Jackson Carlaw is standing right now. She cannot stomach the direction that Boris Johnson is taking this country in—Boris Johnson’s own brother cannot stomach the direction that he is taking the country in—so the question is, why should the people of Scotland be...

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...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: reject it. I was surprised to hear Donald Cameron defend the suspension of Parliament. As Alex Rowley quite rightly said, it is really an attempt to shut down democracy and close down debate. Boris Johnson and his cohorts realise that they do not have the votes or the support in Parliament for a no-deal Brexit, so they have tried to shut down the operation as much as possible to get to...

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...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (22 May 2019) 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...
