The UK Is Set To Officially Begin The Brexit Process

Theresa May To Trigger Article 50 Wednesday 477 17407906 10155186972049031 332901484

Britain's Brexit minister David Davis said in a statement that Britons had approved a "historic decision" to leave the European Union after four decades of membership.

Formal talks between Britain and the EU must then wait for member states to approve more detailed negotiating rules and give an official mandate to European Commission Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, officials said.

"We want negotiations to start promptly", said the Prime Minister's offcial spokesman this morning.

Although Great Britain's decision to leave the European Union was thrown into political turmoil following a High Court ruling last November, the so-called "Brexit" will move forward next week.

Brexit will take a substantial toll on Britain's parliament and government departments, according to a report by the Institute for Government (IfG) published Monday. "And it is good to know that Prime Minister Theresa May shares this view".

The announcement comes a day after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned that other member states will "realize it's not worth leaving" the EU after they see the deal the United Kingdom gets.

European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said Monday that the EU is "ready to begin negotiations".

The British government will invoke Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty, which says a member state may "notify the European Council of its intention" to leave the bloc.

"We are ready to begin negotiations", he said. Few see two years as enough time to agree one and Brussels wants to hold off starting talks until after a divorce deal.

Although Britain as a whole voted 52-to-48 in favor of leaving, majorities of voters in both Scotland and Northern Ireland favored staying in the European Union. Britain has said it will impose limits on immigration, and so will have to leave the EU's single market and customs union. While others assume that Brexit will set a precedent for other European countries to break away from the EU, Juncker strongly disagrees that this will happen.

The Brexit vote in June has prompted nationalists in Scotland and Northern Ireland to call for a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom.
