Covid-19 (11 Nov 2020)

Nadia Whittome: ...letters to small businesses in my constituency, or those ready to sacrifice human lives in order to stay relevant and boost their careers. I am referring here of course to, among many others, Nigel Farage, who in March was criticising the Government’s herd immunity approach and is now rebranding himself as the leader of the anti-lockdown movement. My constituents have made it clear to me...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Clause 1 - Reports of the Boundary Commissions (10 Nov 2020)

Stephen Doughty: ...the idea that there is fraud or ghost voting, that this is deeply concerning and does not reflect the facts on the ground. It is very much the type of language and the sort of nonsense we hear from Nigel Farage, Donald Trump and others, and I am afraid that their time is coming to an end. I want to turn to some of the specific points in the Lords amendments. First, on the question about...

Covid-19: Future UK-EU Relationship (15 Jul 2020)

Paul Bristow: ...and it was called the Peterborough by-election in 2019. I understand what the destination will be if we do not keep our promises, and unfortunately it will be to come third in a by-election behind Nigel Farage. I do not want to be there again, and that is why I am proud that this Government will keep our promises. The people of Bretton, the people of Paston, the people of Werrington, the...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Jun 2020)

David Goodhart: Oh, the Nigel Farage—okay, there is a sort of xenophobic tinge to some of it, but this was a very minority part even of the leave campaign. I think there is an interesting point about opinion in Scotland, which is somewhat different, partly because there has been a somewhat different rhetoric in Scotland. Actually, I think there is a very good case for having a different...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (18 May 2020)

Stella Creasy: ...it work. With every new wave of people, the UK has always been unwelcoming and always regretted it. Indeed, it was the same with the Huguenots, the wave of refugees that brought both my family and Nigel Farage’s family here. When the Windrush generation came, they were met with “no blacks, no Irish, no dogs”. Now we rightly honour their contribution to our communities. We have...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Gareth Bacon: ..., as the constituency is home to contemporary figures who have made an impact on public consciousness. By a quirk of fate, that same village has been home to one of my new constituents—a certain Nigel Farage, who, although never a Member of this place, has had an undeniable impact on British and European politics. We are fortunate to have some of the best schools in the country, and I am...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Willoughby de Broke: ...finally going to implement the referendum result that 17.5 million people voted for. I remind noble Lords and the Government that we are here tonight largely because of the bravery and courage of Nigel Farage and his leadership of UKIP. Without that, David Cameron would never have had any intention of granting a referendum—that was the effect of UKIP. When we won the leave vote, we were...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (9 Jan 2020)

Pete Wishart: ...to pay tribute to some of the other people who have won today, in the great victory of this Brexit. I know that the Conservatives will, uncharitably, not do this, but somebody has to congratulate Nigel Farage. It is his vision that has been realised today. Without Nigel Farage, there would be no Brexit. Without the pressure that was put on the Conservative party from whatever incarnation...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (20 Dec 2019)

Richard Drax: ...a pleasure to see them all here, particularly on our side of the House. Years ago, before I was elected in 2010, I adopted a battle cry: “We want our country back.” In fact, it was so good that Nigel Farage nicked it, as he freely admits, when he was in charge of UKIP. That was not some sort of xenophobic, Union Jack-waving, isolationist standpoint. It was because, like many of my...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (14 Nov 2019)

...let me be absolutely candid: I support independence for Scotland. I want Scotland to escape a position where our future is imposed on us by Boris Johnson, who is now having his strings pulled by Nigel Farage. The Tory party is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party. I do not want that to be Scotland’s future; I want the people of Scotland to have the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...and arguments raised by prominent Brexiteers, from Boris Johnson [Prime Minister] to Michael Gove [Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster] to Liam Fox [Member of Parliament for North Somerset] to Nigel Farage [Leader, Brexit Party]. None of them talked about leaving the EU without a deal. Most of them talked about us being members of the Customs Union and the single market and being able...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (5 Nov 2019)

Harriett Baldwin: ...in his opening remarks. We have not had a UK ambassador in Washington for four months. Can he update the House on when he expects that appointment to be made, and can he also rule out appointing Mr Nigel Farage to such a position?

Leaving the EU: Integrated Foreign Policy (30 Oct 2019)

Bob Seely: ...reform to DAC, the OECD committee. To colleagues who think that I am hostile to DFID, let me say that I am genuinely not, and I am genuinely not hostile to 0.7%. Some people in this House, like Nigel Farage outside it, say, “We should pretty much scrap it. It is a disgrace that we spend more on overseas aid than on policing.” Actually, that is an embarrassing figure for us. I am not...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (30 Oct 2019)

Michael Russell: ...the uncertainty. It would merely unleash on the population fresh and ever more complex, ever more acrimonious, disputes. There would be more of Boris Johnson, more of Jacob Rees Mogg, and more of Nigel Farage. What an appalling prospect. There would be a veritable continuous Halloween of sneering antidemocratic horrors on our screens, for another year, or two, or three. The withdrawal...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: ...of Scotland. That is why it is right and proper that the Prime Minister should put his case before the electorate. I look forward to him being challenged—not just by Opposition parties, but by Nigel Farage so that we can see whether the deal he has come up with satisfies the real hard-right Brexiteers, for whom nothing will sate their appetite. As many people have remarked, the...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Caroline Lucas: ...a people’s vote because they know that that is the best way—indeed, the only way—to get to the bottom of this crisis and resolve it. All that a general election will do, frankly, is put Nigel Farage and the Prime Minister back in their comfort zones, giving them a stage—political insiders dressed up as rebels, whose agenda, frankly, is chaos—so that division will thrive. I want...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Steve Brine: ..., to heal this country we have to move on from this in some way. In such a fractious situation, with such a close referendum result, we have to be generous in defeat and magnanimous in victory. As Nigel Farage said—and I do not quote him often— “For a civilised democracy to work you need the losers’ consent”. Fortunately, we can now have that because we are the dealers—the...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: ...the noble Lord. I profoundly disagree with a range of things he said. He started by asking what the position would be if the referendum had gone the other way. That was made extremely clear to us. Nigel Farage said, “If this goes the wrong way, the campaign for the next stage will begin immediately and we will continue with that”. The reality is that we are in this position because the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Baroness Quin: ...that Jacob Rees-Mogg should talk about “remainiacs”, as he did this week. I am also shocked by some of the language that is being used. I was shocked, perhaps not surprisingly, by a tweet from Nigel Farage, which showed a photograph of a large number of union jacks flying outside Parliament. It said: “Share this photo to wind a Remainer up”. As a remainer, I am not wound up by the...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Heseltine: ...is, and what it has been since day one of his premiership: to combine an agenda of right-wing hard-line politics with Brexit to try to get it through a general election campaign by attracting back Nigel Farage’s supporters. It is as blindingly obvious as that. You had only to listen to the speech today, in which the ultimate target was Jeremy Corbyn. But Boris has got it wrong. Jeremy...
