The Union after Brexit: how could Jean-Claude Juncker avoid it? Unsurprisingly, the Commission chief emphasised the importance of unity and of reestablishing the original objectives of peace and prosperity on which the EU was built.
Juncker said: “The future of Europe should not become hostage to elections, party politics or short-term domestic views of success. However painful and regrettable Brexit may be it will not stop the EU as it moves to the future. We need to move forward, we need to continue.”
