    Queen Elizabeth Signs Brexit Deal Into Law Authorizing Exit From EU

    LONDON, March 16 (Xinhua) — Queen Elizabeth has signed the Brexit bill, clearing the way for Prime Minister Theresa May to start talks to leave the European Union, it was learnt on Thursday.

    House of Commons Speaker John Bercow announced Thursday that the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill has received Royal Assent from the queen, which was passed by the parliament on Monday.

    A formal royal assent the queen is all that stands in the way of May informing Brussels of Britain’s intention of leaving the European Union after 43 years.

    The bill gives May the legal authority to trigger article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the laid down procedure within the EU for a member state wishing to leave. Once article 50 is triggered, it kick-starts a two year process for negotiating a new relationship between both sides.

    1. Might not be all tea and crumpets.

    Whatever a crumpet is.  The EU nations are a little cheesed at Britain for trying to have it both ways. “We’re leaving, but we expect to be treated just as favorably.” The sun never sets on British opinion of itself.
