23/06/2022 | 15:56:11 Thank you very much, Mister President. And I'm extremely grateful to Mr Frank SCHWABE for this motion. Without his persistent pursuit of it, I doubt very much whether we would have seen a new Bill of Rights introduced into parliament in the UK this week, which will of course increase discussion. So, I thank him for that. I doubt, too, whether we would have seen clarification of the Government's position. So let me just read out from the document. This is produced by the Government of the UK... 23/06/2022 | 10:22:17 Thank you very much. When I first read this report, I was struck by how this is almost a classic monitoring report. It is very good, very good indeed. What I mean by that is that it has not sought to turn monitoring into a big stick with which to beat Malta, but it has set out very carefully to look at the way in which Malta is developing, and how we can provide the assistance to allow Malta to develop further. I think that that is a very important fact that we should all remember when we... 21/06/2022 | 18:46:20 Thank you very much. I too have met Yevgeniya Kara-Murza, and I want to comment on the second report, but before I do that let me thank Mr Frank SCHWABE and Ms Thórhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR for their two valuable reports, which had a tremendous amount of interesting information. If I turn to the second report, first, I think it's really important not to gloss over what happened to Vladimir Kara-Murza when he was arrested. It's important to go into the detail because it shows so much about how... 20/06/2022 | 15:42:31 Thank you very much, Madam Chairman. I appreciate that this report covers a very sensitive issue. I would fully agree that political parties should not exhibit any signs of racism at all. I was surprised, however, at a statement that the report mentioned where it says that racism and intolerance are rife in Europe. In spite of the efforts to eradicate them on the part of public authorities and civil society organisations, forms of intolerance including a number of different forms as well as... 27/04/2022 | 11:21:13 Thank you very much, Madam President. I am unashamedly on the side of Ukraine. The speech which has moved me the most this morning has been that excellent speech of Mr Oleksii GONCHARENKO, amongst many other excellent speeches this morning. He spoke with sincerity and with clarity and should have brought home to us what this war is about and what its effects are. I don't want to use faint praise to damn this report when I say that it contains many worthy items that we should concentrate on...
