The Scallop War: Fisherman Feud as Brexit Looms

Description

On Tuesday a dispute between French and British boats flared up spectacularly off the estuary of the Seine in the English Channel. The French claim the larger UK vessels are plundering the sea bed during a mating season when they themselves refrain from trawling coquille Saint Jacques, which are prized mollusks that are then sold back to France. Our pannel will debate issues of territorial waters and sustainable fishing. Also, what will become of British fishermen that voted for Brexit?

  • Brexit Leads To Second Longest Parliament In UK History

    According to Reuters, the Brexit debate has stalled into the longest parliamentary session in three centuries. The library for the House of Commons said that the current UK Parliament is the longest-sitting legislature since the English Civil War, which broke out in the mid-1600s. Parliamentary sessions usually last a year from spring to spring, but the last election intended to have a government for two years, in order to complete the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. But the Brexit debate has led to the second longest parliament in English history. On May 7th, the current parliament sat for it's 300th day in the House of Commons chamber.
