The road to Brexit – a timeline of events as May prepares to trigger Article 50

The road to Brexit has been a tumultuous one, with protests and lawsuits and a bitterly divided country. British Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50 on Wednesday (March 29) which means official talks on Britain leaving the European Union can begin.

VILLACOUBLAY AIRPORT, NEAR PARIS, FRANCE (REUTERS) – On Wednesday (March 29) British Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50, which will formally kickstart the process of Britain leaving the European Union.

It comes nine months after 2016’s June 23 referendum in which Britons voted to leave 52 percent to 48 percent.

The result divided the country, with remain voters feeling their wishes and concerns are being ignored.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that parliament must approve May triggering Article 50. This angered the Leave camp, which believed pro-Europe campaigners were trying to subvert the result of the referendum.

Last weekend, leaders of the remaining 27 states met without departing Britain for a summit that they hope could relaunch the Union in the city where it was founded 60 years earlier. The Treaty of Rome, creating the European Economic Community (EEC) of France, Germany, Italy and the Benelux, was signed on March 25, 1957.
