Theresa May activates Article 50

29.03.17.

Now we are finally on our way out of the European Union.

With triggering of Article 50, this sets the clock ticking for the UK’s departure from the EU strait jacket in exactly two years, unless extended by unanimous vote by all 27 member states.

We must work hard to achieve the divorce that the British people voted for and nothing less.

The Prime Minister signs the letter to EU President Donald Tusk announcing the UK departure.
