BREXIT BEGINS! Theresa May SIGNS OFF
THERESA May will pledge to fight a “fierce” battle to win the best Brexit deal for everyone in Britain – including migrants – as she takes the UK a historic step closer to leaving the European Union.
Downing Street tonight issued a photograph of the Prime Minister signing the document that gives formal shape to the British people’s wish expressed last June to quit the EU.
The closely guarded letter formally notifying the EU of our intention to leave and setting out her Brexit principles was then being despatched to Brussels for UK ambassador Sir Tim Barrow to hand over in person to Donald Tusk, president of the European Council of member state governments.
