Last day in the EU: Britain is preparing to exit the EU


At 23:00 London time on January 31, 2020 (2:00 February 1 Moscow time), the UK will cease to be a member of the European Union (EU). 3,5 years have passed since the Brexit referendum, the release of Misty Albion from the EU. The clock projected on Downing Street (the residence of the Prime Minister of Great Britain), counts the remaining time.


It should be noted that the UK is so happy about this event that they even issued a 50-pence coin dedicated to Brexit. Moreover, British Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel-Johnson (Boris Johnson) has planned to hold a cabinet meeting in northern England, where he is going to discuss "prosperity and new opportunities." An hour before the official Brexit, Johnson will speak to the nation and talk about "a great moment for the country and a moment of hope." Will there be words in his speech about the “end of European slavery”, whether the fireworks will start and whether this day will be festive, is not specified.

Moreover, on the territory of continental Europe, no one is going to hold any special events. Only a press release on Brexit is expected. This is not surprising, because from Brussels and other capitals they have repeatedly stated that they regret the decision made by London. But on January 31, 2020, the flags of Great Britain, near the buildings of the European Parliament (Strasbourg, Brussels and Luxembourg), will be officially removed. True, without special ceremonies, although one of them will be sent to the EU History Museum (Brussels).

After that, the UK and the EU will begin a transition period. It will last until December 31, 2020 and is necessary to address a number of issues (the conclusion of a new trade agreement, the “utryasy” of access to fishing areas, and others). Until this time, the UK will still be in the customs union and the single EU market, but it will lose its voting right in the European Parliament and the European Commission. By the way, the new seven-year budget of the EU will begin to operate on January 1, 2021.

        It's not that important anymore, the main thing is to get out. Still, more voted for the exit and the process began. And those who are against, in large parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, they do not want to leave the EU. So, we are waiting for further development of events, a possible transformation into "Small Britain". Maybe Harry and his wife "prochukhali" tendency and dumped, without waiting for it?

          52% in favor - 48% against. The revolution for 2% did not happen, which means that everyone is violet. Scotland and Ireland will simply constantly obtain preferences for themselves, thereby blackmailing Great Britain. The whole point of Brexit is that GB does not want to be a tool, but wants to steer this tool (EU). Which, to be honest, is already unlikely and difficult to implement. We will see how rats swim and whether the ship will sink without this ballast.

            In Ukraine, too, everything was about 50/50, dashing trouble began ...

            In general, you are right, stocking up with popcorn, well, or seeds. laughing Given the long history of interstate relations, I will not wish good luck to these citizens. hi

              There are already such battles along Ireland and the border that the Premier League just smokes on the sidelines. Highlanders can also light up, although they tried to accustom them to the tea ceremony. Preparing blue face paint and revisiting Braveheart with Mel Gibson. laughing

        Infuriated by such a "bummer", the "hot Polish workers" will return home, and there, in their workplaces, cheap strikebreakers - "guest workers" from the "banderoheroic" Maidan region are stuck around .... winked
