One-way streets are a ‘new’ invention, at least in contrast to dead ends, that are said to already have existed in ­ancient Egypt. The place and time of the introduction of one-way streets can be determined precisely – London, 400 years ago, 23 August 1617: a lane was made into a one-way street, to help the metropolis on the Thames manage the growing volume of horse-drawn coaches and hand-drawn carts.


Thus the capital of the United Kingdom introduced a new road-usage concept – but 14 months ago 37.44% of the country’s eligible ­voters chose a new path that seems to have become a sort of cul-de-sac of its own. In the meantime, negotiations to leave the EU have ­started, and it has become clear that only a two-way-street mentality will bring about a fair and ­equitable solution.


Foreign trade experts are likely to become as much in demand in the transport and logistics scene as ­divorce lawyers in the sphere of private law. This is only partially due to the ­currently uncertain climate.


Whichever, here’s to a great summer!
