Motion S5M-17296: Longest Parliamentary Session Since the Wars of the Three Kingdoms

14 May 2019

That the Parliament notes that 14 May 2019 marks the 300th sitting day of the current UK parliamentary session, which is the longest parliamentary session since April 1653 at the time of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms; believes that this is due to a senseless impasse that has left the UK without a functioning government; commends the Scottish Parliament for, it considers, getting on with the day job, focusing on what really matters to people and not being obsessed with the constitution, while, it believes, the Conservative and Labour parties continue to talk without apparently really negotiating, and urges the UK Government to bring an end to what it sees as this fiasco by agreeing to a so-called People’s Vote.
