Geoffrey Cox tells MPs: ‘This parliament is dead’

November 17, 2019


This Parliament is a dead parliament.
It should no longer sit. It has no moral right to sit
on these green benches. Twice they have been asked
to let the electorate decide upon whether they should continue
to sit in their seats, while they block 17.4 million
people’s votes. This parliament is a disgrace.
– Hear, hear. Let me tell them the truth. They could vote no confidence
at any time, but they are too cowardly to give it a go.
[cheering] They could agree to a motion
to allow this House to dissolve, but they are to cowardly
to give it a go. [cheering] This parliament should have
the courage to face the electorate, but it won’t, it won’t because so many
of them are really all about preventing us from leaving
the European Union at all. But the time is coming,
the time is coming mr Speaker, when even these turkeys
won’t be able to prevent Christmas.

  2. About time too…I am warming to this man…letting parliament know what the country thinks of this complete all party shower this lot are? The majority of the country rightfully want is to LEAVE the EU… and not a fudged/rigged BREXIT?

  3. Had it been a boxing match the referee would have had to stop the fight. With the remainers unable to defend themselves.Devastatingly true!

  4. I was expecting Jack Nicholson to come out "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!" getting shouted at the Corbynated Chicken and IRA Commander McDonnell.

  5. "This Parliament is dead Parliament" That is a lie to Parliament.
    The attorney general has lied to Parliament which is illegal.
    Looks like he wants out.

  6. My goodness, Cox is miffed, isn't he. We might be forgiven for thinking it was Cox who told Johnson it'd be ok to prorogue Parliament, only to have the Supreme Court drop its pants and take a dump all over him. Oh yes, Cox is a humiliated man.

  7. In the space of these 90 seconds shown Geoffrey Cox manages to sound like Basil Fawlty in the Americans episode and the beginning of that horrific song called Fire by Arthur Brown!

  8. MP BARRY SHEERMANN IS RIGHT: GEOFFREY COX IS UTTE§RLY DISGUSTING; HE REALLY IS A DISGRACE TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS; SHAME ON HIM !!!

  9. This clown gave the worst legal advice in the history of public law. A defender of the rich, frauds and a war criminal. A pompous pontificating pretender.

  10. This is a black and white fallacy. They are assuming that the only two options are to leave on the 31st or to remain. There are other options, the torys are just creating this artificial deadline and saying that any other ways of delivering brexit are unpatriot and make 'parliment dead'.

  11. Maybe he is saying, including me this parlament is dead, no sir the parlament and the courts are doing their job that you and your far right party tried to stop, the country is dead if you have no respect for the parliament and the supreme courts.

  12. And I am a disgrace
    For I am the man who advised the pm to lie to the queen
    As a barrister that makes me the biggest turkey at the bar

  13. Your a MAGNIFICENT Man…..WELL SAID Geoffrey…. So our PM isn’t allowed to prorogue Parliament, isn’t allowed to have a GE and isn’t allowed to uphold the single biggest democratic vote ever in this country. We live in a totalitarian state not a democracy. The argument for Political Reform in the UK has now become overwhelming..imo

  14. Outstanding Mr Cox – shame it was such a small clip! (Guardian be careful – you're in danger of actually reporting the news)

  15. How the Manchester Guardian has fallen…..from a great Libertarian paper in the 70s and 80s to the Marxist RAG it is today employing people like Owen Jones and others…its a real shame.

  16. FINALLY SOMEONE WITH BALLS TO STAND UP TO THE ANTISEMITIST & ANTI-BREXIT PARTY AND THEIR LIES AND CORRUPTION…WELL DONE….DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN PLEASE…!!!!

  17. WOW!! Someone please buy that guy a drink from me, Hit the nail on the head, Spot on. These so called mp's want to use the remoaners support to further there own careers and stop brexit.

  18. Remainers should remember the EU decision makers NEVER have to face the electorate, because they are selected not elected!!

  19. With comments like that im glad im british.. talk about nail the truth.. and as for the turkeys.. they need to go.. asap..

  20. "It's non pinin'! it's passed on! This Parliament is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late Parliament! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed it to the perch it'd be pushing up the daisies! its metabolic processes are now 'istory! It's off the twig! it's shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARLIAMENT!!" {apologies}

  21. The best spitting speech this year in parliament, aimed at the remain faction. Great stuff to rally the troops in the Brexit trenches.

  22. He hit the nail on its head I think labour must think everyone in the country is stupid not to notice what they've been doing for years
