Article 50 to be triggered next week

BBC News

Prime Minister Theresa May is to officially notify the European Union next Wednesday that the UK is leaving.
Downing Street said she would write a letter to the European Council, adding that it hoped negotiations on the terms of exit and future relations could then begin as quickly as possible.
The move comes nine months after a referendum in which the UK voted to leave by a margin of 51.9% to 48.1%.
An EU spokesman said it was “ready and waiting” for the letter.
Under the Article 50 process, talks on the terms of exit and future relations are not allowed until the UK formally tells the EU it is leaving.
If all goes according to the two year negotiations allowed for in the official timetable, Brexit should happen in March 2019.

    Is anyone based in North Yorkshire interested in coming to a musical event on the evening of Wed 29th (which, in fact coincides with Article 50 being triggered). it’s hosted by myself.

  2. Just heard on the radio we still have a live leader, apparently he felt it was too late, more positive might have been “better late than never”
    Wouldn`t it have been better for UKIP image to welcome the news and say “That`s wonderful” (even through gritted teeth)
    Come on UKIP lighten up, carping misery doesn`t gather many votes.

    • Apparently Theresa May has said we mustn’t worry, Britain will continue to co-operate with Europe on Defense after Brexit.
      European Army, anyone?
      I’m seriously worried that I am becoming one of those weird conspiracy theorists, but wait! Don’t condemn straight away, suppose some within the Tories really believe the rubbish about Russia, and think they must protect Britain, but they know that people would resist, if they could, signing up to a European Army. Lib Dums would support, Labour is in chaos, a strong UKIP might have been the only stumbling block. I would like to know who suggested the Stoke leaflet in the very beginning, if only to shoot my theory down in flames.

      • Dee,

        I have to agree somehow this all smells of a rat, UKIP officials are not saying anything about this leaflet, neither defending or admitting it, why? What are they hiding from or in denial about?

        Who actually went out and posted it? they have not come forward either. None of it makes sense, why did Nuttall disappear for a week and where did he go? Was it so that no one could actually get to the truth here? The party has been silenced and neutralized but by whom and for what reason I do not know. Oops, I am becoming a conspiracy theorist now, but I do think the deeper we dig the more outrageous this whole thing is going to get.

      • Dee,

        I have been told that it was only delivered to Asian houses. That it was between Nuttall and the Asian members in Stoke.

        • Oh, I see so this was just a little cosy collusion between these two parties, well it did not work did it? And quite honestly we all could have told them so, that is what happens when you become dishonest and deceitful.

      • Dee,

        As I wrote in my article some weeks ago on “Defence of the Realm – Part 5” co-operation with the EU is well entrenched and there are no indications so far that May is going to do anything about it.

        It might not be a bad idea for the whole of our net EU contributions to be spent on defence with, of course, proper governance of procurement and measures to retain the guys who are, apparently, leaving in droves. I’m sure that many will oppose it, but I also believe that conscription should return with exceptions only for those engaged in or pursuing a proper career.

        • What happened to my comment on conscription???
          Is that too controversial for our image?
          Have I been censored if I have please tell me face to face.

          Dear Dee,

          You say “conscription should return with exceptions only for those engaged in or pursuing a proper career.”

          What an excellent idea.
