21/06/2023 | 16:11:31 Thank you very much indeed, Tiny. I am very grateful to be able to talk and I thank the rapporteur. A budget is – the clue is in the name – a budget is the ability to do what you want to do over a period, sometimes here in our case slightly longer. But let's look at this in the cold light of day. We have to be aware of what we can and can't do. And Mr Rik DAEMS was our former president and I don't disagree with what you said there, Rik, so well done, but a budget has got to look at every part... 24/04/2023 | 16:02:28 Thank you very much indeed, Mr President, Can I say what an interesting debate. There are a lot of things in here and I'll try and go through some of them very quickly. Mr Stefan SCHENNACH, you made a very good point about the corridor in Azerbaijan. Just to let you know myself and Ms Lise CHRISTOFFERSEN have agreed, as the rapporteurs, to go there as soon as we can; the invitation has been sent to Azerbaijan today. Mr Davor Ivo STIER talked about the Balkans and also what that means. It was... 24/04/2023 | 15:06:05 Mister President, thank you very much indeed. I have just been talking to one of my British colleagues, who never thought that he would actually ever sit in this building. He then said, "Look at us now! You've got the Brits back into the European Parliament!" [Laughter, applause] Can I first of all please praise my friend and colleague for us all, Mr Aleksander POCIEJ. That was very a moving speech indeed. The irony of that terrible time in Warsaw was that the Soviet forces stopped short of... 10/10/2022 | 12:19:17 Thank you very much, Mr President. I think this is an interesting time to be in the Council of Europe. As of today, a hundred missiles – I'm told – have hit Ukraine. This is a time that we must stand up and be counted. If we want to make progress, which is what we are talking about and I have heard Mr Aleksander POCIEJ say, and Mr Frank SCHWABE, and other people, this is the time that we have to show our mettle. This is the first time since the Second World War we have gone back into a... 20/06/2022 | 12:18:24 Mr President, thank you. Mr Aleksander POCIEJ, thank you. I think we've got to look at progress about what we achieve as an organisation. We are now talking about having a fourth seminar, fourth conference about the future. But the future can only be set by the lessons of the past and one of the battles we're fighting now is for the very soul of Europe. At the moment we have a ghastly situation in the Ukraine.
