Theresa May has confirmed Article 50 will be triggered toward the end of March 2017

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-37532364

In addition, she also confirmed that she will pass a bill abolishing the European Communities act of 1972 from the statue book, as part of her bid to make Britain independent and sovereign.

The Queen's Speech this Christmas will make reference to this bill as part of a larger "great repeal bill" that will enshrine all existing EU laws into British law.

Looks like Brexit has a chance of being blocked after all. The High Court has ruled Article 50 cannot be triggered without the backing of Parliament

And they're leaving for real: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-39325561

Oh well, they've never liked the European Union, anyway. I mean if I had won a World War and the French and the Germans became the centre pieces of European politics after it I'd be pissed too, so I can't really blame them for it.

What would be more concerning would be if Le Pen won the French presidentials and France left the EU... there is no EU without France+Germany.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

I thought the UK didn't like the EU bc other countries were devaluing the value of the Euro example:Greace bc Uk's pound would be worth more than the Euro.
Essentially the Uk economy was being drug down by weaker economical countries in the union. Thats how I understood it.
I didn't think it had anything to do with Germany, France or WWII

That is a part of it. Great Britain also has a history of independence. If I am not mistaken it was the first territory to become independent from the Roman Empire then much later gained right through creating Parliament in 1215 and was the first country to fully move away from Catholicism then the eventual removal of monarchy power between William and Mary and Victoria due in part to the English Civil War. Not to mention its territories having that same independent spirit birthing the American Revolution and calls for peace from both Gandhi and Mandela.

To be fair there was a long gap between those events. Plus, I would add...

-Leaves Roman Empire
-Starts own empire
-WWII
-Borrows buttload of money from USA
-Owes buttload of money to USA
-Dismantles empire at behest of USA
-USA starts own empire

No, she hasn't. She's stated her desire to call one. She can't call it unless she has support from 2/3 of all MPs. Which means over 100 MPs from non-Tory parties have to support it. But I suspect she'll get it anyhow.
