Brexit begins: Date Article 50 will be triggered to start process of UK leaving EU now confirmed

Date: 20 March 2017

Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50 on March 29, formally starting the process for Britain to leave the European Union.

May will write to the EU next Wednesday announcing the beginning of Brexit. It will start the clock on a two-year countdown to Brexit and allow negotiations between London and Brussels to begin.

Tim Barrow, the UK’s ambassador to the EU, formally notified the office of the EU Council President Donald Tusk on Monday morning, the Telegraph reports.

The PM’s official spokesman said: “We said it would be by the end of March and thought it would be helpful to say when it will happen.

“We want negotiations to start promptly. We expect it will be a two-year process and we are confident that is what we will achieve. So Britain will exit the EU on 29 March 2019.”

The UK “expects to receive a response within 48 hours,” the spokesman added.

Talks on the terms of the departure and future relations are not allowed under the Article 50 process until the UK formally tells the EU it is leaving.

If negotiations go according to the timetable, a Brexit should be achieved by March 2019.

Downing Street says there are no plans for an early election, according to Sky News.

EU Commission chief spokesman Margaritis Schinas told reporters at a briefing in Brussels that eurocrats were ready to begin talks “immediately” and that they had a comprehensive plan in place.

“Everything is ready on this side.

“The first step after the notification will be the adoption of guidelines by the European Council, which is the political reaction.

“The European Commission will then immediately – and I mean immediately – issue a recommendation for the negotiations. This is the legal mandate and after this draft recommendation the European Council will formally adopt the mandate to the EU negotiator Michel Barnier.”

Responding to the announcement, Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis issued a statement.

“Last June, the people of the UK made the historic decision to leave the EU. Next Wednesday, the Government will deliver on that decision and formally start the process by triggering Article 50,” he said.

“We are on the threshold of the most important negotiation for this country for a generation.

“The government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the UK and indeed for all of Europe – a new, positive partnership between the UK and our friends and allies in the European Union.”

Rumors that May would trigger Article 50 last week were quashed by sources close to the PM, after Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon declared her desire for a second independence referendum. That led to speculation that May did not want to appear cavalier about the future of the UK.

The PM’s spokesperson said Barrow had a conversation with Tusk’s office earlier on Monday morning to give the EU notice of the date.

“There will be a letter, [May] will notify president Tusk in writing, and the prime minister has already confirmed she will give a statement to parliament as well.

“More details will be given in due course,” he said.

My Conclusion: Nationalism is on the raise. As Untied Kingdom decide to leave the Europe Union since the people voted for UK to leave the European Union. And I heard there are at least several countries in the EU now wanting to leave the EU. Nationalism is on the raise and Globalism is being rejected on a large scale.

Climate taxes on meat and milk would lead to huge and vital cuts in carbon emissions as well as saving half a million lives a year via healthier diets, according to the first global analysis of the issue.

Surcharges of 40% on beef and 20% on milk would account for the damage their production causes people via climate change, an Oxford University team has calculated. These taxes would then deter people from consuming as much of these foods, reducing both emissions and illness, the team said.

Brexit fallout may tear both UK and EU apart – Ken Livingstone

The UK vote to leave the European Union came as a shocking surprise to the British establishment, with Prime Minister Cameron announcing he’ll step down from his post. Meanwhile the UK decision is emboldening continental Euroskeptics to demand similar referendums from their governments. How will London go about parting ways with the EU? Who will reap the benefits of that decision – and are there any to reap? Sophie Shevardnadze asks former mayor of London and Labour party veteran Ken Livingstone.

Good News for British

(NaturalNews) This might just be the most shocking news of the decade (so far), and I only cover it here on Natural News because it has paradigm-shattering implications for economies, nations and the very future of human civilization. According to published media results so far, the BREXIT vote appears to have won a referendum victory that all of us at Natural News had hoped for (but we also thought would be rigged from the start to defeat BREXIT).

Ten Reasons why Untied Kingdom Must Leave the EU

Author: Adam Hamdy; filmmaker and writer

When I recently told a colleague that I want the UK to leave the EU, she expressed considerable dismay that someone of my background – mixed-race, working class, comprehensive education – was lining up with far-right racists. Such a misguided view of the people who support Brexit does a disservice to the millions of Britons up and down the UK, who are now in a majority that understands why it is morally, politically and economically essential for Britain to leave the EU.
