[applause] me mostnow what makes angry? it is not just our arguments are wrong. these deficit deniers who go hurting theg we are poor. hang on a second. what gets hurt when governments ratesontrol and interest go through the roof. who gets hurt when you waste money on debt interest and you the nhs?ut who gets hurt when taxes go up firinginesses start rather than hiring? not the rich. it is poor people. working people. people labor claimed before. let's just remember labor ideas poor, they hurt the poor. that's right, labor. people not for working but for hurting people. you don't want to lecture about government and ask labor. if you want something done about conservatives, the s. [applause] thank you. there's another argument. we also need to win. there are some people who toerstand the deficit needs come down, but they don't get why we need a surplus. why we do.ou i don't stand here like a former prime minister did and say i've abolished boom and bust. remember him? we can't just b
report and we should continue with that position. >> george howard. >> the prime minister kennedy and crime commission in commending the bravery, tremendous bravery of the police officers involved in the stabbing incident in my constituency and police being asked to do more and more with fewer and fewer resources? >> well, once again, i join the hon -- honorable gentleman, i think if i said earlier, our police officers brave i will go where others wouldn't go in order to protect the public. they do so much in the line of duty but also when they're off duty swell, they're prepared to go and face danger in order to protect us. on the issue of resources, i would simply remind him that we have protected police budget over the period of the comprehensive review spending settlement. >> order. >> you have been watching prime minister questions from the british house of commons. you can find video of past prime ministers questions and other public affairs programs. >on friday, outgoing independent party leader nigel farage gave to supporters and members of the conference after leading the
video where it shows the leading lights of the united states of america from nancy pelosi, george clooney, harry reid, and various others all saying that there is not a chance that this man would ever become president of the united states. they sneered when they said it, and why were they sneering? this goes with the inauguration of donald trump, right at the end, they say the united states has a new president, his name is donald john trump, so for those people who are finding it difficult to get to terms with brexit, with actually leaving the european union, for those finding it difficult to understand that the american people have voted for donald trump, get over it because he is president of the united states. what i would say for all of us here, and this actually includes myself, is that we have to ask ourselves, why is it that people behind thatleft they made the democratic decisions that they had, which we think we can't understand. how could you possibly vote for brexit? how could you possibly vote for donald trump? the fact is that the people have. these were the forgotten
seems already told george w. bush that he wanted to take part, but it wasn't legal for the united kingdom to take part in a war being launched for the purpose of changing the regime in another country. when he received that advice, i think every lawyer in the place agreed that was undoubtedly right. that wasn't the view the americans took someone said. american neo-cons are not so impressed with international law. their constitution doesn't con strain planned parenthood strain them. i once had a key american official tell me we have all of the legal authority we have to invade. we have a large majority in both houses of congress. and that was it. but of course they were so keen too the british that they were prepared to give some time to tony blair to tackle this problem of whether it was lawful for him to take part and to work out bases upon which the british could join. now, i would say so far, i think the motives of all these people were virtuous. they believed all of this. they were making the world a better place by removing a tyrant and installing a pro-western, pro-israel d
which starts on saint george's day and to support? >> well, i'm happy to say that my honorable friend's constituency is only one constituency a way. we share the same railway line so there's an operative for great british asparagus, i would be very happy to join him. >> thank you, mr. speaker. can i take the prime minister back to his respond to the honorable mention -- member. it was a truly dreadful case it women to refugees, mr. speaker, are facing absolute crisis. that changes the government proposes to make do housing benefits will force the closure of the women's refugees. he needs urgently to look again at these changes because alessi makes refugees exempt, they will be closing up and down the country. will he do it? >> what i would say it is what we did in the last parliament with rape crisis centers we are doing the same type of thing with these refugees and that's why the 80 million pounds of funding is so important and that is why my right honorable friend has written to local authorities to explain that this money is available to make sure that refugees are there. >
