Across The EUniverse – Number Fourteen
Nobody expected it. And because of that the shock of Brexit was all the more great. But as Theresa May says: Brexit is Brexit. And we have to live with it. There is an old Irish story about the American tourist lost down an old unpaved road. He comes upon a farmer leaning over the gate and asks: what’s the way to Dublin. The farmer looks around. And around again. He takes his time. And finally says: if I were you I wouldn’t start from here.
Well this is where we are. The EU goes on. And Across the EUniverse goes on. And we will all have to learn to live without the UK being part of the immediate family. Should we change our language? No. English remains the common second language of all in Europe. Should we change our approach? No. The European Union is a project that must be constantly tended to and built brick by brick. We want to continue contributing to that project.
The European Union is a Union built on law and the role of lawyers is to write and understand and interpret law. That is what Across is about. As lawyers we contribute to the effort to build an ever deeper union.
In this months edition of Across we take some of the Articles from past numbers which we think are particularly important.
