May begins United Kingdom tour to gain Brexit support

20 March, 2017, 18:51 | Author: Leticia Walters

The U.K.'s envoy to the EU, Tim Barrow, informed the office of European Council President Donald Tusk of the plan this morning, the spokesman, James Slack told reporters in London on Monday.

Commentators in the European Union believe that the "Letter of Intent" will have to include the terms of the monetary divorce settlement to make an "orderly withdrawal".

Some opposed to Brexit fear that the two-year window that the United Kingdom will have to negotiate these terms after Article 50 is triggered just won't be long enough - and it sounds like the British government might be preparing for that eventuality as well.

She said that the focus in the coming years in Europe will be to work on Brexit and "how we can strengthen the cooperation of the 27" other European Union members.

'The government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the United Kingdom and indeed for all of Europe - a new, positive partnership between the United Kingdom and our friends and allies in the European Union'.

The trigger for all this tumult is the innocuous-sounding Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty, a never-before-used mechanism for withdrawing from the bloc. Britain announced Monday that it will formally trigger the process of leaving the European Union on March 29. "The Commission will then immediately release a recommendation to open negotiations", added Schinas. Tusk will also summon those 27 leaders for a summit to endorse the final guidelines, probably in early May.

If the negotiations go along expected lines, Britain should have officially exited the European Union by March 2019.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said the trip to Swansea was part of an "ongoing engagement" with the nations, and that Mrs May will be "listening to people from right across the nation as we prepare to leave the EU". The notification of triggering Article 50 will come in the form of a letter.
