Some Stonking Speeches

Just a few videos from today’s referendum debate. Some MPs seemed to lose their way and lost sight of the fact that the motion was whether to allow the British people a referendum on the EU, instead they began addressing EU points.

In the end it was Ayes: 111, Noes 483 – so 483 MPs who don’t think the British people should have a voice on the EU.

Jacob Rees-Mogg

Frank Field

Bill Cash

Stewart Jackson

Thanks to LiarPoliticians for the videos – he’s had a busy day.

There were plenty of others: Redwood, Shepherd, Jenkin, Walker, Baron, Carswell … … too many to mention – well done to all the 111: we won’t forget.

UPDATE The full text of the debate is now up on HANSARD and it’s well worth looking through. Ian Davidson (Lab Co-op) was another MP who made some excellent points and there are quite a few stinkers too – Eustice, for example, the Tory toad who tabled an amendment, abstained, so his career is safe.  Aiden Burley was another one who made a fool of himself.  Shouts of “drivel” were heard towards the end of his short speech.  I think this is funny:

Mr Denis MacShane (Rotherham) (Lab) rose—
Hon. Members: Groan!
Mr Deputy Speaker : Order. He has not said anything yet!

  1. “Betrayal” Good word Bill.

  2. Good on Jeremy Corbyn! Used to live in Islington North. He answered my (third) letter.

  3. Monday 24th October 2011 A bad day for Dave and the political classes – A good day for the resistance:

  4. It has been a steady betrayal, Banned. Betrayal in small increments in every facet of our lives, from nursery to nursing home – from cradle to grave as some might say.

    Hello Buck, and welcome. Corbyn, like Vaz, is pro-eu but also seems to believe in letting the people have a voice. I've never liked him before & still think he's a greasy charlatan.

    Thanks UWM – I'll check it out 🙂
