UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United Kingdom and the European Union (EU) are poised to lift their joint “rings” tonight as Brexit time slots for London and Brussels.
For many it is a gloomy partition as millions of Britons who really wanted to remain part of the bloc will be left angry, while for millions of other Britons who support the neighborhood it is a joyous occasion as they are ready to celebrate the partition.
But no matter what side you choose, one fact remains clear, leaving is safe and will happen tonight. When the London clock arrives 23:00 and Brussels 00:00, the partnership between the United Kingdom and the EU will end.
About three and a half years after most Britons decided, as they say, to pack their bags, the result of the June 2016 referendum is becoming a reality.
However, Brexit is not really a complete end to the union, for both sides to not see or talk to each other again. The UK and the EU will have to sit down to regulate post-Brexit finances, or in more technical terms, new trade partnerships.
These talks will continue until the end of 2020 and the form of the new trade agreement will then unfold.
What changes will happen tonight?
Nothing will change technically tonight except that the United Kingdom will not be a member of the EU. Trading will continue as usual until the end of the transition period, respectively until the end of 2020, in the same way as the United Kingdom is still a member of the bloc.
Free movement will also continue until the end of the year, as passport holders of the 27 bloc and United Kingdom member states will not need EU or UK travel visas.
However, British representatives will no longer be part of the European Parliament and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom), and the decisions of the European Court of Justice will no longer be binding on Britain.
The United Kingdom will be free to discuss new trade agreements with all countries.
A deal with the US has been on the agenda for a long time, but will also be closely watched by the opposition as it has great sensitivity to some of the possible items on the table, including healthcare services and some American products that have higher standards. lower than the Europeans.
The government also pledges to introduce a new system based on immigration.
Three million new 50p coins, commemorating this historic Brexit day, will be in circulation today, with the message on these coins being “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations”.
In a speech to the nation an hour before the split, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will describe Brexit as “a moment of true nation renewal and change.”
The momentum will be marked by parties on the street by campaigners for the departure and on Saturday morning Britain’s cruise to an unknown future will begin.
