The Brexit Update: 3rd Feburay 2017

Ah Brexit, The horrible car crash and messy divorce from the EU have seen yet another two twists in the already bumpy rollercoaster track. since the last update, there has been a huge amount going on. Let’s get straight on with the latest updates.


We’re having a Hard Brexit 

Our PM Theresa May announced that our main platform for negotiating is that were completely leaving the EU, the customs union, the single market and everything. with the tagline to this being: “if we don’t get a good deal then bye bye EU”

Brexit went to the supreme court of the united kingdom  

110px-supreme_court_crest_official-svgAfter the High Court ruling on whether MP’s or the cabinet can trigger Article 50, the government took it to the supreme court where Lord Neuberger ruled that the Government must vote on triggering article 50.

Such a waste of time really, why send it all the way up to find out what you found out before. This was never an attempt to stop Brexit as something like that would be so stupid I dare not to think it.

The Government voted on triggering article 50 

Well well well, the government agreed to it. Grab two of each animal and head for the boat!!! Nah I joke in all serious its a good thing that the government is going to trigger article 50. other than the 42 labour MP’s who voted against it. I’ll Talk about that in another article for another day.


Overall I may not like the idea of a Brexit but its really starting to take shape. hopefully, we don’t stick our foot in it and screw up. I honestly hope we can come out of the EU with a good deal with the other 27 nations.

And that is the latest Brexit update. this is going to be a new reoccurring article here on JT. As always I’ve been Jordan Dodds for Journaling Thoughts Discussion is welcome and free in the comments below.
