Housing, Communities and Local Government: High Streets (13 Jan 2020)

Jim McMahon: Mr Speaker, it was a pleasure to see your journey down here with Patrick the cat and Boris the parrot a couple of days ago—a preening, repetitive, attention-seeking Boris; I am sure he will fit in quite well here. Our high streets and town centres are in crisis, with more shops closing than opening. The Government keep falling way below what is needed to take real action that will make a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Private Sector Job Creation (25 Jan 2012)

Hugo Swire: ...of Saudi Arabia’s biggest businesses. Nearly a third of London buses are manufactured in Ballymena by Wrightbus. I look forward to joining the hon. Gentleman for an early summer holiday on one of Boris’s Ballymena buses after Boris wins the mayoral elections. It is worth pointing out that Northern Ireland has won 7% of foreign direct investment to the UK with only 2.8% of the...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Oct 2019)

The First Minister: When it comes to Boris Johnson’s proposals, it is probably more a case of intensive care, rather than intensive discussions, given the reactions that we heard yesterday. I do not see any indication that the proposals will be acceptable to the European Union. They also break every single promise that was made to Ireland. I remember Ruth Davidson saying that she would...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit deadline: Brexit deadline (28 Jun 2019)

Andrew Dismore: The next PM, as we have discussed, could be frontrunner Boris Johnson, who previously supported remaining in the EU in the single market, even calling those who opposed Turkey’s accession to the EU “foolish”, maybe because of his own Turkish ancestry. He has switched to this careerist opportunism when there was a chance to become leader of the Conservative Party, with his lies about...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel: Visits Abroad (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...Office Baroness Williams of Trafford, 2-3 June 2016; Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for International Trade Mark Garnier, 20–22 September 2016; Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson, 29-30 September 2016; Minister of State for Digital Matt Hancock, 18 December, and 20–21 December 2016; Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson, 7–8 March 2017;...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit and Scotland’s Future (24 Apr 2019)

The First Minister: When I set out the implications and consequences of Brexit for Scotland, I did not factor in the prospect of somebody like Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister. If that happens—there is apparently now a distinct possibility of its happening—the consequences that I outlined today would get even worse for Scotland. Yes—I do think that that makes the case for Scotland...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Airports Commission: Final Report (26 Nov 2015)

Mark Menzies: .... But guess what? It is no longer the busiest international airport in the world, because Governments of several hues have failed to take a decision. There have been spurious suggestions, such as Boris island. I admire my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) for many things, but to hold that out as a solution is just kicking the problem on to someone...

Transport: London Underground (7 May 2008)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the new mayor's views on bendy buses are well known. I happen to take a completely different view, but that is as it is. Last week, people voted for Boris Johnson to be the mayor and we have to respect that. No doubt, he will take into account very carefully the views expressed to him by the transport professionals. They have enabled buses in London on every weekday to carry some 6...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Patrick Harvie: The First Minister is quite right to say that Boris Johnson must be held personally responsible for this action. Boris Johnson is someone who, throughout his career, has shown contempt for the truth, contempt for Parliament, contempt for devolution and—although it is out of character for me to stand up for the Queen—contempt for a monarchy that he professes to believe in. However, is it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police Grant Report (3 Feb 2010)

Tony McNulty: Because Boris Johnson is not; because crucially, Ken clearly said to the electorate during his four years, "I am increasing the police precept for London by x and here is what you are going to get for it in terms of safer neighbourhood teams." Boris has said to people-again this is typical flim-flam-that he is going to freeze the GLA precept, but he has told them nothing about the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell: “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell (29 Jul 2019)

Andrew Dismore: Thanks for that as well. After the Lakanal House fire ten years ago, which killed six people and injured many more, then-Mayor Boris Johnson said: “Is there anything we should be doing to ensure that we do not have a repeat of such tragic blazes? Safety has to be paramount and we will certainly be looking at this to see if there are any lessons that can be drawn.” Would you think that...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Deal (Drug Prices) (31 Oct 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...about the real and present threat to our national health service, but there is one. I do not think that there is any doubt that, if they are left to their own devices and if they get their way, a Boris Johnson-led Government would open up our national health service to Donald Trump in the interests of trade deals. Yesterday we even heard Boris Johnson, in the House of Commons, almost...

UK Border Agency — Question (27 Nov 2012)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it might help if I advise the Minister that the comments by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, were about the Government's policies on students and immigration from India. Perhaps the best advice for the Minister is not to agree with Boris, but he might want to agree with government policy. There is clearly a difference in the Conservative Party on this issue. On the subject of the...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — UK-India Trade (25 Jan 2012)

Mark Field: ...to invest in our infrastructure—what I am about to say now will give the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) some satisfaction—which means a 21st-century airport. Even before Boris Johnson talked about an estuary airport on Boris’s island, I was a great believer in an entirely new airport. Patching and mending either Heathrow or Gatwick is not the right solution. A...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (11 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...Rennie and Adam Tomkins about independence, the greatest threat to the future of the United Kingdom does not lie in the Scottish citizens assembly but in the Conservative and Brexit party and Boris Johnson. That is a fact. Even Boris’s brother, Jo Johnson, resigned from his Government saying that he had to choose between family loyalty and what was best and right for the country. There...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (30 Oct 2019)

Adam Tomkins: ...not to a ministerial statement worthy of the name, but to a party-political broadcast on behalf of the Scottish National Party. The truth is this: Mike Russell called for a transition period, and Boris Johnson’s new deal provides for one; Mike Russell called for no hard border on the island of Ireland, and Boris Johnson’s new deal ensures that we will not have one; and Nicola Sturgeon...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria: Overseas Aid (8 Jun 2018)

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future in the European Union (26 May 2016)

Christina McKelvie: ...the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll: up is down and in is out. The two right-wing factions of one party fighting over who is more Eurosceptic reminds me of Alice at the crossroads—or should I say Boris at the crossroads? “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”, asked Boris. “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the cat, who was named...

Questions to the Mayor of London — General election: General election (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...five years. I believe that when somebody gets a new job or when you are the losing party, you congratulate the winner and you congratulate somebody who has a new job. I congratulate [The Rt Hon] Boris Johnson [MP]. He was elected the Prime Minister. He has a mandate. My job as the Mayor is to put aside party differences when I can and work with the Government. Look, he has won and he is...

Tourism: London (6 May 2008)

Lord Harrison: ...and tourism. I congratulate her on how she introduced the debate tonight on tourism, the world's largest industry and the fourth most important industry in the United Kingdom. Last week, in London, Boris Johnson was voted in. He, of course, is a tourist attraction in himself. Indeed, the Times on Saturday reported that Romanian student Irina Paletscu asked journalists queuing outside City...
