Theresa May intends to demonstrate the determination of her Government to complete this process
The withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (EU) will materialize at 23.00 GMT on March 29, 2019, as reported today by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May. This date will be amended in the draft law on the “Brexit” – the British exit of the European bloc, which will be debated next week in Parliament and, once approved, will authorize the disconnection of the EU country.
In an article published today in the newspaper “The Daily Telegraph”, the prime minister said that the decision to place the precise moment of the “Brexit” aims to demonstrate the determination of his Government to complete this process.
“Let no one doubt our determination or question our purpose that Brexit is taking place”, writes the prime minister, who was weakened after losing an absolute majority in the general elections last June.
“(The date) will be (written) in black and white on the cover of this historic piece of legislation. The United Kingdom will be leaving the EU on March 29, 2019, at 23.00 GMT”, he added.
The Prime Minister emphasizes that this legislative project is “fundamental” to achieve an orderly “Brexit”.
The negotiations between London and Brussels are in their sixth round, without any progress has been made on the terms of the rupture, which has created great uncertainty for companies and for EU citizens living in the United Kingdom.
By now, that important hour for the United Kingdom is just the end of the day, the 00:00, in Brussels, not the official British time.
