United Kingdom to launch European Union divorce on March 29

United Kingdom to launch European Union divorce on March 29

But next Wednesday, Theresa May will formally trigger Article 50-beginning the two-year process for Britain leaving the EU.

European Council President Donald Tusk says he will present draft guidelines for the negotiations on Britain's departure from the bloc within two days of London notifying its intention to leave on March 29.

More than 40 years after the United Kingdom joined the EU and nine months since it voted to quit it, Britain's envoy to the bloc, Tim Barrow, informed EU President Donald Tusk on Monday, March 20 of her plan to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the mechanism for quitting that has never been used.

In a statement issued by the government department for exiting the European Union, minister David Davis said that the United Kingdom was "on the threshold of the most important negotiation for this country for a generation".

The report comes as Theresa May travels to Swansea with Brexit Secretary David Davis, where she will talk about the "precious union" of the UK. "I imagine that when the notification arrives there will be a statement from the EU-27 member states", he said, adding that Brexit chief negotiation would then maybe like to comment on the statement released by the heads of state and government. The notification of triggering Article 50 will come in the form of a letter.

West Ham now sit in 12 position in the Premier League on 33 points, while Leicester have three points less and are in 15 place. Sullivan told the West Ham website , "I think all we can do after Saturday's defeat is say sorry to the supporters".

May has already been fiercely criticized by Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who has demanded a second referendum on Scottish independence.

After the article will be triggered, negotiations will start and are expected to last a couple of years.

"There isn't going to be one", the spokesman said, when asked about the prospect of an early election.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron was first to react to the news, warning that May was "embarking on an extreme and divisive Brexit... without a plan, and without a clue". "Yes we have been informed in advance, we are ready to begin negotiations".

Well like it or lump it, Brexit is finally happening.
