Today Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty starting a two-year farewell process from the European Union, after forty-four years in being tied up to Brussels. Today is truly a historic day for the United Kingdom, as negotiations can now begin for Brexit, which is now set in stone, which was voted for by the UK public in June last year. Now, there will be a two-year process of leaving the EU, once finished England will be in pole position to go global without the bureaucratic red tape of being governed by another European entity in Brussels.
Sir Tim Barrow, hand delivered Theresa May’s six page letter to EU council President Donald Tusk today to formally begin divorce proceedings from Europe.
Theresa May spoke to the Commons, “Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people and it acts too on the clear and convincing position of this House.”
Yes, the United Kingdom will be in a position to trade freely with other nations as they wish, which will benefit the Pound Sterling in the long-term, without the hangers-on of a crumbling European Union.
Theresa May said, “The Article 50 process is now under way and in accordance with the wishes of the British People the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union. This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back.”
Britain will now begin to be able to govern it’s own laws and “take control of the things that matter most to us – and we are going to take this opportunity to build a stronger, fairer Britain, a country that our children and grandchildren are proud to call home”.
This is definitely a proud moment for Britain and Theresa May said that this is “the moment for the country to come together”.
Theresa May promised that “every person in the whole of the United Kingdom” will be represented in the negotiations including EU nationals and their status, which is still under question, post Brexit.
One thing that Theresa May doesn’t do, is not back up her statements and she added, “It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country”.
This sounds like the United Kingdom are in good hands, whilst many have said that the EU will do their best to make things as difficult for Britain as possible, but as more time elapses, the UK will be gaining momentum towards freedom and actual prosperity.
Theresa said, “For, as we face the opportunities ahead of us on this momentous journey, our shared values, interests and ambitions can – and must – bring us together.”
EU Council President Donald Tusk, said he wouldn’t pretend that this was a happy day for the European Union, and rightly so, as they are losing the major and most key player in the previous EU conglomerate.
Donald Tusk will later make a statement in response to Mrs. May’s letter in a separate statement, involving the 27 EU member states.
Twenty-Seven? Thank the lord that the UK has had the sense to separate from the ultimate financial burden of 27 other nations, so this will turn out to be a life saver for the UK and we’re all hoping for a smooth and speedy Brexit.
Let’s face it, with the EU’s bubble ready to burst economically, plus with the migrant crisis and threat of Islam toppling many European nations already, England or Britain has truly spoken out against these factors and they have opted out of all that the EU stands for, and rightly so.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that his party respected the decision to leave the EU and the party would hold the government to account “every step of the way”
Jeremy Corbyn said, “Britain is going to change as a result. The question is how.”
Well, Mr. Corbyn firstly the UK will govern its own country and then be making big deals with massive nations, without the bundling problems of fat cat, lazy and half asleep European Union bureaucrats in Brussels.
Mr. Corbyn urged Theresa May to secure protection for workers rights and said if she didn’t it would be “a national failure of historic proportions”
Chancellor Philip Hammond, who once campaigned against Brexit, seems to finally have changed his tune a bit, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, that the UK would continue to abide by EU rules until Britain finally can leave during March of 2019, with or without a deal they say.
But, of course the UK will get a deal and then the UK will go on with new and amazing trade deals, which will bring the pound Sterling back from obscurity and into even further strength again.
Congratulations to the United Kingdom, to Nigel Farage and to all the people who voted to leave the European Union, as it might not seem like the very best shortsighted option that some people had wanted, but in the very near future, the United Kingdom will be seen to have dodged a major bullet in deciding to leave the EU, all together.
Brainstain, over and out!
