Theresa May should of the British house of Commons Brexit in motion
The British house of Commons has prime minister Theresa May Wednesday night given permission for the procedure, which should lead to the withdrawal from the European Union, to set in motion.
Attempts of pro-European parliament in second term, what additional conditions Brexitplan to add were futile.
It is May’s intention that the negotiations on the separation of the EU no later than 31 march to begin. They got the green light from the house of Commons, 494 against 122 votes. Thus came an end to days of political gebakkelei, that the small parliamentary majority of May put to the test suggested.
Before the entry into force, the draft law still has to be approved by the house of lords. Has the conservative party May not have a majority. Given the proportion of Wednesday, the hope is justified that the members of the House of Lords, not elected, also pretty easy to agree. They focus on 20 February about the matter.
Brexitminister David Davis spoke of a historic victory. “A large majority to continue with the negotiations on our departure from the EU and a strong, new partnership with its member states”. The re-shaping of the role of Great Britain in the European scene is a complex task, with subjects such as trade, immigration and security. That can take years.
