22/06/2021 | 09:35:24 Congratulations to my friend Roberto on an excellent report, which is of great interest as you will see that five other of my colleagues from the United Kingdom are participating, including my friend Lord Leslie GRIFFITHS, who is also a minister of religion. I hope he won't mind if I quote a parable: the parable of the Mote and the Beam. Now, we are rightly concerned about the lack of media freedom in countries like Russia and as a former general rapporteur on media freedom and the safety of... 21/06/2021 | 16:18:19 Mr Tiny KOX said at the Parliamentary Assembly is returning at a normal hour, from the recovering from Covid-19. Sadly the British delegation isn't able to attend in person, and I first ask you Mr President, if you would write again, as you've done before, to our Speaker and indeed to our Lord Speaker, supporting the excellent letter that our delegation leader Mr John HOWELL has put to them, asking for us to be able to attend and pointing out that we do have the same kind of diplomatic... 21/04/2021 | 11:40:10 Thank you very much for the opportunity of saying a few words.

And I hope we can resolve the position so that by April we can all be there. But yesterday, sadly, in Britain we reached a milestone of a 100 000 people who have died with COVID-19. We are near the top of a table that no country wants to be at the top of... 25/01/2021 | 13:10:18 Thank you very much, Mr President. Can I congratulate you on your re-election? And can I also say that you and the others who are in Strasbourg have a great advantage over us who are having to contribute remotely.

Can I now refer to the speech, the rather jaundiced speech, of my...
