British Parliament to finally approve terms of Brexit
Posted on : 15 Jan 2020Views: 53
- Britain's parliament finally approved Brexit on Thursday, allowing it to become the first country to leave the European Union by the end of this month, ending years of arguments that toppled two governments and divided a nation.
- For much of the time since the 2016 Brexit referendum, lawmakers have been at each other’s' throats over how, when or even if Britain should leave its closest trading partners after nearly 50 years.
- Some viewed Brexit with horror, fearing that it stripped them of their European identities and turned Britain into an insular, less important nation.
- MPs gave their initial blessing to the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill before Christmas, and the government set aside just three days this week for detailed scrutiny of the complex text.
- The Brexit bill must still be passed by the unelected House of Lords and the European Parliament, which is seen as a formality.
- The Brexit deal covers separation issues such as EU citizens' rights and Britain's financial settlement, and sets out an 11-month transition period in which to agree a wider partnership.
