Briefing - Brexit: Towards the end-game [What Think Tanks are thinking] - 18-09-2020

There is now growing doubt about possible progress on future relations between the European Union and the United Kingdom. The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has tabled a bill on the internal market within the country, which contains provisions relating to the border between Northen Ireland and the rest of the UK that violate the agreement on Britain’s withdrawal from the EU, and would thus constitute a breach of international law. The European Parliament has already indicated that it would not be able to ratify any post-Brexit EU-UK trade agreement, if such arrengements were to be adopted. This note offers links to recent commentaries, studies and reports from international think tanks on numerous challenges facing the UK, EU and their future ties after their divorce.

20 candidates for National Assembly for One Seychelles; 4 running for Lalyans Seselwa

One Seychelles will have 20 candidates running for the National Assembly while Lalyans Seselwa will have only four after the parties submitted nomination documents for their candidates to the Electoral Commission on Friday. «We have not been able to fill up candidates for all districts. We have done this with the intention to focus on the districts that we would win,» the leader of One Seychelles, Alain St Ange, told the press.  He said that One Seychelles is also giving support to an independent candidate standing for the St Louis district, located on the outskirts of Victoria. «We feel that he is a good person for the job and when we find someone with potential we support regardless of his political belief,» said St Ange.   Lalayans Seselwa has submitted nomination documents for four candidates. (Joe Laurence, Seychelles News Agency)  Photo License: CC-BY  Lalyans Seselwa submitted nomination documents for four candidates, and the party's leader, Patrick Pillay, told the press initially he had announced the participation of 10 candidates but «today we came with only four. This is because when they heard that I was disqualified in the race, the candidates became discouraged to stand.»  Pillay's nomination for the presidential election on Wednesday was disqualified for not having a complete list of 500 supporters who are registered voters as a form of endorsement to the candidate standing.    On the question of why he is not presenting himself as a candidate for the National Assembly, Pillay said that he has other roles to play within the party and will focus on that. He said his proposed running mate, Weston Wirtz, has submitted his nomination for the central English River district. Upon submission of the nomination documents, the proposed candidates, if certified, will be issued with a document by the Electoral Commission certifying that they are a candidate for the 2020 National Assembly election. Among the documents that the candidates submitted were a certificate from the Electoral Commission certifying that they have deposited the sum of SCR1,500, a list of 50 supporters who are registered voters of the electoral area of which the candidate wishes to contest with copies of ID cards of all supporters who have signed. Both the presidential and legislative elections of Seychelles, a group of 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean, will take place October 22-24.

Woman crashes car into Jalan Berseh playground 2 days after motorcycle accident

A prime example of what not to do when driving someone else's car — a woman allegedly lost control of the vehicle, crashed into a playground and abandoned the wreck, leaving her passenger at the scene. The 24-year-old woman was arrested for driving the car without the consent of the owner, police said. The accident happened near Block 25 Jalan Berseh at 11.42am on Sept 17. Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, an eyewitness said he had heard the sound of the car engine before he saw it travel towards the playground at a high speed. The vehicle only came to a stop when it hit a stone bench, he said. «After the female driver opened the door, she quickly ran upstairs [to the HDB block], leaving the female passenger behind. »She only came back about half an hour later and even changed her clothes." The driver and her passenger had apparently been in a motorcycle accident just two days ago, said the eyewitness, who overheard their family members berating them for getting involved in another crash.

Neighbour wars: Elderly resident repeatedly pours water on smoking neighbour in Bedok

Like oil and water, a pair of neighbours just can't seem to see eye to eye over their differences in smoking habits. Annoyed that the neighbour living in the unit below below her refused to stop smoking by his window every day, a 68-year-old lady lost her patience and poured water out her window and onto him four times in the past two months, Lianhe Wanbao reported.  The woman lives on the third floor of an HDB flat along Bedok Reservoir Road. In an interview with Lianhe Wanbao, the neighbour, a 64-year-old man, said that he initially thought the lady was washing her windows. It was only after the fourth instance where she yelled at him did he realise she had poured water on him on purpose. «She's so unreasonable, my hands were all wet!» he exclaimed. «I smoke in my own home, it's none of her business.» According to the elderly lady, the smell of secondhand smoke would regularly waft into the house, especially if the wind was blowing in. She revealed that the man was a chain smoker to begin with, but had started smoking more frequently this year.
