‘No Turning Back’ on Brexit as Article 50 Triggered

An anonymous reader shares a BBC report: Britain’s departure from the European Union is “an historic moment from which there can be no turning back,” Theresa May has told MPs. The prime minister said it was a “unique opportunity” to “shape a brighter future” for the UK. She was speaking after Britain’s EU ambassador formally triggered the two year countdown to the UK’s exit by handing over a letter in Brussels. It follows June’s referendum which resulted in a vote to leave the EU. In a statement in the Commons, the prime minister said: “Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people and it acts too on the clear and convincing position of this House.” She added: “The Article 50 process is now under way and in accordance with the wishes of the British people the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union.”
