27/01/2020 | 12:59:09 Mr President, thank you very much indeed. Mr Hendrik DAEMS, it's great to see you there and congratulations, also to Lord David BLENCATHRA, who made a very good speech indeed. Mister President, we were talking, if you remember, about what you were going to do for the next two years. And one think I said is: what is the role of the Council of Europe? And the reason I said that is because every single thing we do, other than the Court of Human Rights, are done by other organisations. Democracy... 03/10/2019 | 12:18:50 Well colleagues, thank you very much indeed. It was quite surreal, just when you were speaking, Madame President, to see Sir Winston CHURCHILL, standing then, and you paraphrased what he said, because he did speak rather long-windedly. And, basically what he said is, after a generation of terrible wars, we had a chance to set ourselves above that, and to bring Europe, which had been at war for a thousand years, together. And that's what this place is about. This is — you've already heard from... 27/06/2019 | 17:17:15 Madam President, thank you very much indeed. This is a very important debate. The most important thing that any parliamentarian can do is protect the citizens of their country. Where there are crimes perpetrated, as members of parliament, we must always try to get to the bottom of what has happened. I would like to thank Mr ZINGERIS. This is not an easy report and it is a crucial report because, in shedding light on the murder of Boris NEMTSOV, we need to know what has happened. He was a... 25/06/2019 | 10:42:20 Very much indeed, Mr O'REILLY. No backstops tonight, today, I can tell you. Can I also thank Petra de Sutter. We've worked together for quite a long time now, Petra and I. I would tempt you to accept our thanks, if I may.  And in fact, we were sparring even this morning, so I'm very grateful for everything you've done. Yesterday, I think we had a very large missed opportunity here. We did not celebrate the 70th anniversary here. The agenda was changed at the last moment by the President –no... 24/06/2019 | 19:44:03 Madam President, thank you very much indeed. I'd like to slightly follow-on from my colleague Nigel Evans. Nobody here doesn't think the Russians should come back. But the reason that we have had this problem in the first place is because the Russians didn't respect what we stand for. Now, the Russian delegation was part of our group. They were part of the EC group. They left the EC group and they left this place. And I will tell you, colleagues, all of you, that they did what they wanted to...
