UK To Trigger Article 50 On March 29

Britain voted in a 2016 referendum to leave the European UnionMore

Speaking in Swansea on Monday, during the first of a series of visits around the United Kingdom before she triggers Article 50, Mrs May said she was intent on "delivering on Brexit and getting the right deal". "We are ready to begin negotiations".

May succeeded David Cameron soon after the Brexit referendum, but delayed triggering Article 50 to give herself time to work on her strategy.

"On the day Theresa May is travelling the country claiming she wants to bring the United Kingdom together, she lets it be known she is about to unleash division and bitterness".

She has said she wants a new relationship that is good for Britain and the European Union, but would rather walk away than accept a bad deal.

There's also likely to be friction over Britain's desire to maintain free trade in goods and services with the bloc, without accepting the EU's core principle of free movement of workers.

A response from the group is expected in around 48 hours after the UK's notification, according to European Commission negotiator Michel Barnier.

It comes nine months after the country voted to leave in the 23 June referendum.

Nine months after Britain voted to quit the block by 51.9 per cent to 48.1 per cent, our European Union exit will finally be underway.

In order to do this the British government would have to invoke Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty. Tusk will also summon those 27 leaders for a summit to endorse the final guidelines, probably in early May.

Giroud urges Wenger to renew Arsenal deal
He told Canal Plus: "We want Arsene Wenger to renew his contract, to continue his adventure, because we support him". Wenger revealed on Saturday he has already made a decision, but is yet to reveal what he intends to do.

It is expected that the 27 other European Union member nations will agree to the start date, with an initial response from them with 48 hours, the BBC reported.

The British Prime Minister Theresa May will visit Wales today as the government there tries to convince the devolved nations that their input will help shape its Brexit negotiations.

"The government is clear in its aims", he said.

They would be in addition to the Great Repeal bill, which will end EU legal authority in the country by scrapping the 1972 European Communities Act.

The extra measures will place "a huge burden" on Parliament and government departments, the think tank says.

Mrs May said past year that she meant to notify the European Union of the UK's intention to leave by the end of March. She will contact Tusk directly to launch negotiations in due course.

The call would take advantage of polls showing May's Tories well ahead of the opposition Labour Party, which has been beset by internal strife under left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: 'We want negotiations to start promptly.
