Icelandic whales

The European Parliament adopted a resolution on the 7th of July this year concerning the possible accession of Iceland to the European Union. Although the resolution was rather alright, several amendments had to be tabled. This time I decided to offer a helping hand not only to the Icelandic people, but also to the whales. The result was as follows:

“Insist that Iceland cease all whaling and drop all the reservations it has lodged with the International Whaling Commission;”

The resolution was very relevant in other areas as well, for example Iceland’s possible accession to the EU was not linked with the Icesave package, which would have been injustice carried out by a large state towards a smaller one.
