British parliament issues the act of "Brexit”

Understanding the patterns of modern politics of Europe requires following the details of a ongoing phenomena of Brexit. This abbreviation stands for “British Exit”, which refers to United Kingdom decision on leaving European Union, which was made on June 23, 2016. Accordingly, public opinion revealed vast disappointment with the current functioning of Union’s politics and its attitude towards United Kingdom. The idea of Brexit has became the topic of heated discussions during last months, and therefore evoked even more mixed reactions after officially issuing the act by British Parliament.

The referendum was initially called by David Cameron in 2016. As a result, 51.9 % of the ballot voted “Leave” and nearly 48.1 % of the interviewees stood for “Remain”. The results were tallied on a UK-wide basis but general figures presented quite significant regional differences between voters. The process of leaving European Union has formally begun on March 29, 2017 when Home Secretary Theresa May triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

Accordingly, United Kingdom was granted two-year period in order to come to terms with European Union and its authorities. Officially, negotiations began on June 19, 2017 and resulted in announcing an agreement regarding the country’s severance with the bloc. Consequently, Britain is obliged to pay an exit bill of £35 billion to £39 billion, prevent from establishing a so called “hard border” between Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, and EU citizens in Britain.
