Challenges of Brexit in environmental law implementation
The main challenge of the Brexit in ensuring that the environment has been protected is
ensuring that the United Kingdom follows the protocols set by the European Union.
Considering that the EU has a standard that seeks to ensure that the environment is
protected in a particular magnitude, the Brexit is considered to be an easy way that allows
for the lowering of the administrative burden of legal compliance to these aspects (Reid,
2016). In particular, there is concern that the protocol, permission and reporting practices

The European Union: Good for integration, or not?

Brexit would give a new life to Dicey’s doctrine of Parliamentary supremacy as demonstrated by Sandra Fredman “Withdrawal from the EU makes a fundamental change to the UK’s constitutional arrangements, and rights of UK residents will be lost. Such a change can only be affected by Parliament.”[footnoteRef:4] As a result of this, Parliamentary supremacy would be key as it would ensure that unelected bodies such as the judges can’t create or pass laws, in connection to the on-going whereby unelected bodies in Strasbourg were passing laws that became implemented into the UK constitution.

The U.K voting to leave the European Referendum will have a direct effect on the construction industry as a whole, which in turn will have an effect on the UK in general. Currently, there have been no legal changes so the EU Laws and Regulations are still in play.

idealism, although largely critiqued by the left, centrists - even members of the right itself - for underlying tones of racism, sexism and homophobia. At a Q&A on the European Union in January 2014, the former leader of UKIP and Pro Brexit campaigner, Nigel Farage, denied that discrimination against women existed. Farage declared that women were simply “worth far less” than many of their male counterparts.
“A woman who has a client base, has a child and takes two or three years off - she is worth far less to her employer when she comes back than when she went away because that client base won't be stuck as rigidly to her portfolio,” (Farage, 2014).

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey
