Polish ruling represents far greater threat to the EU than Brexit

The ruling by Poland’s constitutional tribunal last week that it would give priority to the Polish constitution over EU law has sent shockwaves through the European Union.

The European Court of Justice had previously held that measures taken by the Polish government which undermine the independence of the country’s judiciary violated EU law. But judges in Warsaw ruled last Thursday that in doing so the court had exceeded its competence and that they would give primacy to the Polish constitution over EU law in this area.
