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. We, as Europe's parliamentarians, must stand up against tyranny, we must stand up... 25/04/2022 | 17:58:59 Thank you very much indeed, Mister President. I thought it's my job to tell you to be quiet. I'm quite shocked somebody stealing my thunder, but actually, in the words of English, as you know, Tiny, English is a very broad language and you were quite right to be able to use those words as many other words you could use. So, don't worry about it. Can I just thank Lithuanians, our Hungarian colleague, and our Ukrainian colleague for bringing forward the report on the way Russia has acted, the... 25/04/2022 | 16:58:58 Thank you very much. I'm absolutely delighted to be able to give the progress report, but I want to take you back because progress is the omnipresent of everything we do. In 1939, we all stood across Europe and said, "Good old Poland, they will hold back the hordes." 1939: Cavalry men on horses charged tanks; it was a catastrophe. The rest is history between '39 and '45. Eight weeks ago, roughly, we suddenly were surprised again "Ukrainians, they will stand up, they will fight, they will do... 27/01/2022 | 16:25:20 Thank you very much. I would like to start, if I may, just by reading a quote and it says this, "Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator but above all, thou shalt not be a bystander". That is what the Holocaust really stands for and that is what this is about. Eighty years ago, it was the first time in human history that people were killed on an industrial scale. Before that, there had been perpetrations of genocide – whatever they used to call it in Roman times – but it...
