Brexit – the aftermath

1 April 2017

On 23 June 2016 the British electorate voted to leave the EU. united kingdom exit from europe relative imageSome nine months later, on 29 March 2017, the Prime Minister triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which will start the Brexit process.

As Churchill might have put it: “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” 

Now begins a process – vaguely envisaged by Article 50 to be two years – of negotiation with the EU. Thus it may be that by around early 2019 the UK will have left the EU, but Article 50 does allow for the possibility of an extension of the two-year period.

There is, by common consent, a lot of work to do to disengage the UK from its 44-year relationship with Europe, and comments such as those made by Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats and evidently frustrated Remainer, are not encouraging in this respect: “We are going to launch a legislative war,” he says, “We will grind the government’s agenda to a standstill, unless proper and rigorous safeguards are given…”.

 But one thing we do know: the Government will at some point introduce a new Immigration Bill (oh no, not another one, we hear you cry) to deal with European immigration. It will be interesting to see what it says.
