Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...by so many noble Lords. We shall be here again quite soon—although not necessarily on the same sides of the Chamber. We cannot be oblivious to events taking place simultaneously in another place. Boris Johnson assumed the premiership with a promise to return to Brussels and open discussions on the withdrawal agreement. It took some degree of skill to negotiate an even worse deal than...

Brexit: Preparations - Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...totem of 31 October as his own virility test, at enormous expense to Parliament’s ability to scrutinise legislation, business’s ability to prepare and increased uncertainty? It was of course Boris Johnson, who has got what he wanted out of it: he is now Prime Minister. It is now time that, as Prime Minister, he put the national interest first. He should put aside this shroud-waving...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Truscott: ...electorate a say on the form of Brexit now proposed. As a historian, though not as distinguished a one as many noble Lords in the Chamber today, I will make a couple of historical allusions. First, Boris Johnson should beware of what happened to Charles I when he tried to bypass Parliament and rule from 1629 to 1640 with his eleven years’ tyranny, a historical period mentioned by the...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Puttnam: ..., I will restrict myself to just two of the recurring fantasies that we are currently forced to listen to. The first is that the country will somehow find itself united under a Government led by Boris Johnson. As even his friends concede, Mr Johnson is an almost uniquely divisive and untrusted figure. While I would argue that remainers tend to be less viscerally unforgiving than their...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: I must confess that I am disappointed by the tone the right hon. Gentleman has taken today, because I had thought that he might rise to the occasion and see what the electorate—and, I believe, his own electorate—broadly want us to do, which is to get Brexit done. I thought he would wish to reflect the will of the people who voted for Brexit in such numbers in 2016 and have waited for a...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Brexit Deal (19 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: Statement that political agreement has been reached and that the United Kingdom has concluded an agreement with the European Union under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union. This is a statement, for the purposes of section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act (No. 2) 2019, that the United Kingdom has concluded an agreement with the European Union under Article 50(2) of the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Lord Razzall: ...election will come soon, so Her Majesty will have to start again. It is only fair to treat the content of the gracious Speech as part of the Government’s election manifesto, together with Boris Johnson’s speech to the Tory conference and the Chancellor’s financial statement. As a Liberal Democrat, I am obviously glad that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor are answering calls...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Advertising in schools (1): Advertising in schools (1) (17 Oct 2019)

Tom Copley: How many schools in London are known to feature the Anomaly Group digital advertising billboards (https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/news/boris-johnson-quizze d-about-brexit-propaganda-shown-in-primary-schools/25/09/), highlighted by Stella Creasy MP’s question to the Government?

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

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, like many other noble Lords, I want to open briefly on Brexit. I cannot do more than repeat the words of Boris Johnson to the 1922 Committee an hour ago when he said: “We are close to the summit … but it is still shrouded in mist”. That is exactly where we are today. I hope that we will be able to have proper scrutiny of any proposed deal and that this House will have a full...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Desai: ...several times. However, we are where we are. I might be completely wrong—and I see that the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, is in his place, so I speak with some trepidation—but I believe that Boris Johnson has introduced a certain logical distinction to the Northern Ireland problem, and it is worth thinking about. That logical distinction is between the common market and the customs union. It...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Angela Crawley: .... This Queen’s Speech was delivered against a backdrop of chaos and a political crisis that we have never seen before. It was nothing more than an expensive distraction from the shambles that is Boris Johnson’s premiership. While I am more than happy to pay tribute to the hon. Members for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) and for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), who opened the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (14 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...sabre-rattling attempt to create hostility and conflict between the electorate and MPs. I will pause while the noble Baroness, Lady Goldie, gets her phone. She is not guilty. I thought it was Boris Johnson making a quick call to check what I was saying. In recent years we have seen the rhetoric reach new levels of toxicity in an increasingly desperate attempt to lay responsibility at...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion for an Humble Address (14 Oct 2019)

Lord Dobbs: ...I endorse the fine words of my noble friend thanking Her Majesty for the great honour she did us here today, despite the attempts of protestors to close down Parliament. I had thought that that was Boris’s idea. I also thank our doorkeepers, the police, our security staff, our caterers, our cleaners and everyone who under Black Rod’s guidance has worked so hard to make this occasion...

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Medicine Supplies) (10 Oct 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...policy of the Prime Minister and others. It is beyond belief, particularly in light of the comments from Dame Sally Davies, that Jackson Carlaw and the Scottish Conservatives seem happy to back Boris Johnson in taking the UK out of the European Union with no deal. I do not think that people in Scotland will readily forgive them for that.

Scottish Parliament: Challenge Poverty Week (10 Oct 2019)

...everything that we can to tackle poverty. The continuation of the seemingly rapid acceleration towards a no-deal Brexit makes it all the more obvious that we need to get powers out of the hands of Boris Johnson and his ilk and into the hands of this Parliament so that we do not have to put up with Tory welfare cuts any more, because we can take the right decisions here in the first place...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (New Agreement) (9 Oct 2019)

Annabelle Ewing: ...by the President of the European Council, who cited a “blame game” being played by the UK Government. Does the cabinet secretary share my belief that that briefing simply represented Boris Johnson’s and the Tories’ attempt to shift the blame for the Brexit fiasco to anyone but themselves?

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Possible Disruptions at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde) (9 Oct 2019)

Johann Lamont: I am sure that the cabinet secretary will agree that we cannot believe a word that Prime Minister Boris Johnson says, especially in relation to his promise that Brexit would bring the national health service an extra £350 million a week. Does the cabinet secretary agree that, in stark contrast to that promise, Brexit uncertainty and the threat of there being no deal have put the NHS and...
