TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: ...that phrase and those remarks. He said there had been a tendency towards “despite Brexit” coverage on the BBC around the time of the referendum, but there was a time when one could not turn on the BBC without Nigel Farage’s visage appearing at every turn. It is a debatable point whether the BBC has been unfair on that particular topic. However, the hon. Gentleman made a...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy: Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (16 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: .... The American investigation into alleged collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, led by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, has also now reached Britain. The FBI has named Nigel Farage, the former UKIP leader, as a person of interest, and Mueller has indicted a former Trump campaign operative, George Papadopoulos, who had meetings in London with a UK-based...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Kenneth Clarke: ...put forward by the UK Independence party and others, that the Act has led faceless grey Eurocrats to produce vast quantities of awful legislation and red tape, is one of the biggest myths of our time. I pay tribute to Nigel Farage’s campaigning abilities. There is absolutely no doubt that he is the most successful politician of my generation, because he has persuaded a high...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...; it is about our history as well. It is not just about all of us who were inspired by Lord Dubs. Government Members may find this surprising, but I often say that I share something in common with Nigel Farage: Creasy, like Farage, is a Huguenot surname. Many of us have refugee traditions within our families. Many of us might, in a different generation or a parallel universe, be that...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011 - Question (24 Oct 2017)

Lord Tyler: ...the Minister not recognise that there will be a considerable increase in the workload of our House of Commons Members of Parliament, but, at the same time, a wonderful saving in costs when MEPs such as Mr Nigel Farage and his freeloading UKIP Members are abolished and removed from the European Parliament? Is this not a good opportunity to change the Government’s mind?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Jo Swinson: ...had to put up with. I have experienced it myself, as a candidate and as a woman in the House of Commons. I also vividly recall going on television at the time of the EU referendum and disagreeing with Nigel Farage’s comments about whether voting for Brexit would mean women were more likely to be raped. Suddenly, on my Twitter timeline, I gained a horrifying insight into the...

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

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...European science and innovation, the UK would like to explore forging a more ambitious and close partnership with the EU than any yet agreed between the EU and a non-EU country”. That is an extremely deep and very special relationship, almost associate membership, and I am sure not what Nigel Farage or the Daily Mail—or even John Redwood MP or the noble Lord, Lord...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Baroness Worthington: ...and less of what we do not. With no requirement to maintain political neutrality, platforms can serve up content which is the equivalent of the entire panel of “Question Time” being populated only by Nigel Farages every week. In this polarised environment, deliberate misinformation or fake news can spread like wildfire. It can spread naturally if the “click bait” is...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Pete Wishart: ...that Brexiteers are a “bunch of smarmy pirates”, whatever a smarmy pirate is. I have an image in my head of a cross between Captain Pugwash and Jack Sparrow re-enacting the battle of the Thames between Nigel Farage and Bob Geldof. I do not know what a smarmy pirate is but—shiver me timbers and pieces of eight—I wouldn’t mind being one myself. The right hon....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Viscount Eccles: ...when the young voted against the idea that the Prime Minister’s authority needed reinforcing. I may say that that goes for my quite extended family. Authority to do what? To be a delegate to deliver a Nigel Farage outcome? To eschew dialogue and consultation and go ahead on fixed nationalistic lines? That is not negotiation as they understood it, and I can only agree. There was no...

Brexit: European Union-derived Rights - Motion to Resolve (4 Apr 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: ...that straight after the referendum, the Prime Minister and the Government wanted to bypass Parliament altogether. On so-called independence day, 29 March, I was on a radio programme following Nigel Farage and Alex Salmond battling it out. Nigel Farage said, “This is independence day—the day we got our country back”. We never lost our country. Philip Hammond said that,...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: .... I am offering it to those families.” Let me conclude so that the Minister can answer the many excellent points that have been made this afternoon. We have heard condemnation—rightly so—of Nigel Farage’s infamous “Breaking Point” poster, which was, of course, incredibly offensive to all of us, so I will not say any more about that, but I would like to...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (21 Mar 2017)

Patrick Harvie: in the single market”. Owen Paterson said: “only a madman”— that was his language; Owen Paterson’s language would never be mine on any subject— “would actually leave the market”. Nigel Farage, Matthew Elliott, Arron Banks and others said similar things. Ruth Davidson, not just during the EU referendum debate but after the result was in,...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Howarth of Newport: .... Now, not just in the Brexit vote here but in the US presidential election, as in the last elections in Hungary and Poland, they have rejected the political establishment in favour of authoritarian populists. At least the referendum did not put Nigel Farage into Downing Street. Instead, as she entered Downing Street, Theresa May spoke rightly of burning injustice and her mission to make...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Boris Johnson: ...France; we export bicycles, I am proud to say, made in London to Holland; we export TV aerials to South Korea, and boomerangs to Australia, I believe; I think we have at least once in the past exported sand to Saudi Arabia; and Nigel Farage to America, I am delighted to say. On Friday—

Scottish Parliament: Economic Impact of Leaving the European Union (28 Feb 2017)

Willie Rennie: ...such as Liam Kerr, who say that the world is our oyster and that we will be able to achieve much more when the European Union has been shed from our backs. They produce a chart that, I think, Nigel Farage produced at one point, which shows growth in trade around the world only exponentially increasing, while the line for the EU is always going down. They say that, if only Britain had an...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Morris of Handsworth: My Lords, immigration dominated the EU referendum. Who can forget UKIP’s “Breaking Point” poster unveiled by Nigel Farage during the campaign? Given that the debate was about whether we should leave the European Union and not about whether we should leave the world, it is worth noting that not everyone who comes from mainland Europe to the UK has the intention to immigrate,...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Lord Finkelstein: .... I think we can all agree that it would be tragic were such a fate to befall them yet again and on such an important issue. In 2008, there was one isolated pioneer calling for an in/out referendum on membership of the EU. It was not Nigel Farage; it was years before UKIP started advocating a national vote. No, it was lonely but determined Nick Clegg. The Liberal Democrat leader bravely...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...she would have blurted out to fill an awkward pause in the conversation, so the question is: what was the motivation? My suspicion is that she was perhaps a little bit spooked by seeing the pictures of Nigel Farage at Trump Tower following the election in November, or it may be—as the right hon. Member for Gordon (Alex Salmond) suggested—that she was pursuing questions of...

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

Michael Russell: those obsessions. If Theresa May fails to succeed in her negotiations with the other 27 nations, she will set her country—and our country—on a race to the bottom on tax, working conditions, regulation and wages. She has said as much, to enthusiastic applause by Nigel Farage. Everyone should let that sink in, especially those on the Tory benches, who are becoming apologists...
