What is the result of Brexit in the UK?
On Thursday 23rd June 2016 the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Brexit is a term used for the United Kingdom potentially leaving the European Union. The only legal way to leave the European Union is found in the European Union Lisbon Treaty Article 50. A quick summary of the process is informing the European Union the intent of leaving the European Union. Then the United Kingdom and the European Union make agreements and negotiations, there is withdrawal arrangement, the United Kingdom and European Union come together to have a contract on their future relationship with each other, the release of European Union responsibilities on withdrawal, government and parliamentary preparations, dealing with European Union law the United Kingdom has implemented ‘Great Repeal Bill’ and the devolved regions. As soon the prime minister has announced the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union it triggers a two-year timer. Through the duration of the two years, the United Kingdom and European Union talk to come into agreement of what deals and offers can be made. (Essentially, who gets what). If the two-year period expires and no arrangement has been made the United Kingdom end up leaving with the European Union with nothing. (Unless the United Kingdom extended negotiation period) Topics that the United Kingdom should consider and negotiate with the European Union about are the relationship between the European Union markets and British businesses, the United Kingdom’s border controls, the rights of British citizens living abroad, European migrants living in the United Kingdom.
