Didn't pull any punches did he. Wonderful speech

What a breath of fresh air! It was lovely to see his support for Rosie Duffield too. Time to get my thank you cards out of the drawer.

FrancesGumm Mon 22-Feb-21 20:03:20

Excellent speech

CatChant Mon 22-Feb-21 20:05:45

It's Philip Hunt not Pullman but yes, he was magnificent.

SmallPug Mon 22-Feb-21 20:07:53

He was magnificent. Thank you Lord Phil!

Is Philip Hunt related to Jeremy Hunt?

Oh that’s great. Seems to be more sense in House of Lords than the whole of parliament.

What an excellent speech.And yes for his support of Rosie Duffield and brilliant that he called out the shameful silence of those who should be standing up for her.

Awesome.

Thanks for posting.

That a great speech. Rare to see a Labour man willing to speak out.

Is Philip Hunt related to Jeremy Hunt?

No, their names are pronounced differently. Philip's is pronounced as it reads whereas Jeremy's is more of a kh sound at the start.

I could hardly believe my ears hearing him call the people not standing up for women, "cowards". Questioning the government for doing nothing because their own departments have embedded "this philosophy" within their own advisory system. Just brilliant!

Back to the speech. Brilliant! Diamond geezer. Why aren't there more like him?

MrsBrunch Mon 22-Feb-21 20:30:13

Wow that man gets it. Great speech, absolutely bloody fantastic.

Just need more of them on board.

Is he LordPhilOfBrum on Twitter? I think I’ve followed him for a while but didn’t really know who he was!

OppsUpsSide Mon 22-Feb-21 20:31:38

Wonderful!

Outstanding, as was Baroness Noakes ❤️

mindtheclegs Mon 22-Feb-21 20:36:26

Love how he explicitly said how the treatment of Rosie Duffield was shameful. This man has the ear of some strong women around him 💪
