Queen formally approves law giving UK PM May power to trigger EU exit talks

 

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Queen Elizabeth on Thursday formally granted Prime Minister Theresa May the power to trigger exit talks with the European Union, approving legislation which passed through parliament late on Monday.

 

The announcement, made in parliament by speaker John Bercow, confirms that May can begin divorce talks at any time, although her spokesman hinted on Monday that any such decision was likely to come towards the end of the month rather than in the coming days.

This would have been a story if Her Maj had NOT approved the law. It is a formality for the queen or her appointed rep in monarchical outposts, to approve.

You would think that the UK was starting a war in Europe the way some posters and European leaders have said. The UK tried to work with the EU asked for better conditions and was told to naff off basically. It hasn't worked as its original common market model. The majority of people voted out and that is what we are doing. The EU will miss the money the UK has given them but that doesn't have to mean we stop trading. It is up to the EU now to work with the UK to have a mutual working relationship without the binding constraints and legislation the EU puts on its members.

 

Well done her majesty for respecting the will of the people. It is a shame the Lords didn't do the same. To the Bob Geldof luvvy types and the Gina Miller's. Start realizing the UK is leaving the EU and stop trying to disrupt it in anyway possible, as you are not only embarrassing yourself but showing just how out of touch you are with the people. Mostly those that voted leave seem to want the best for the UK. anything less is treason IMHO.

I could have done without the last clause re. treason (which stopped me 'liking' the post), but I agree with everything else in your post.

I agree with you too especially about the treason.

 

Perhaps now the moaners, whiners, whingers and the what iffs will keep the their stickybeaks out and let the PM get on with getting the best deal or no deal at all if that is what it takes.

 

 

If only Bill..........................not a cat in Hell's chance I fear.

So true. If I had known what the UK & the EU would become today I'd NEVER have voted to join in the 1975 referendum.

I do not wish to be "in touch with the people" if the people are such numpties.

 

At least it's decided now and the numpties can see how it benefits them.....

 

You've always got Trump to rely on anyway!

Her Majesty had no choice in the matter. If the 'will of the people' people was to Remain, do you really think that UKIP and others would've stopped lobbying to leave the EU ?? People have a right to agree or disagree - it shouldn't be a case of put up or shut up.

The referendum was given and people have the right to vote either way. Not Miller trying to overturn and stop the legal referendum. So yes people should accept it, not try and over turn the decision.

I know but I live in hope. However seeing the number of die hard Remainers on here let alone both inside and outside of the Tory party, wee Krankie's mob and the HoL I sometimes wish that the PM and the Queen could bring in the Queen of Hearts saying.

 

"Off with their heads".

So those that voted leave are numpties eh! What would you call those that voted to remain?  Personally I feel those that voted did themselves justice which ever way. It is a political opinion without need to insult or ridicule.  So which country in the EU will you be going, as it must be difficult been surrounded by so many people who, well are numpties.

 

 

 

You and your friends are the ones causing angst, NOT me

 

You won OK, Now leave it at that

 

I suspect that the 48% of those who voted remain felt that, ON BALANCE, it was safer to remain and fight for internal change

 

In contrast, the numpties see no risk, no possible down side, only the sunlit uplands of little England.

 

You will not convince me that you made the correct decision until I see evidence of that. At the moment, all the signs are that it is a terrible mistake.

 

I have already acquired properties in Scotland and hope they get independence and remain part of the single market at the very least. Otherwise, I have an application for Danish citizenship in pipes.

 

Each time I go back to England, I'm increasingly disappointed at the loutish behavior, the scruffiness and how dumbed down things are becoming.

 

I posted a link to some excellent documentaries explaining some of what has gone wrong. No response. Too intellectual I guess......

A great day for democracy, especially after all the obstacles and frustrations that tried to undermine it

 

Democracy, or tyranny of the (tiny) majority?  

 

Thin line there.

What are you going on about? There is no tyranny going on in the UK.
