The UK will begin the formal Brexit negotiation process by the end of March 2017, PM Theresa May has said.
The timing on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty means the UK looks set to leave the EU by summer 2019.
Mrs May told the Tory Party conference – her first as prime minister – the government would strike a deal with the EU as an “independent, sovereign” UK.
Voters had given their verdict “with emphatic clarity”, she said, and ministers had to “get on with the job”.
In a speech on the first day of the conference in Birmingham, she also gave details of a Great Repeal Bill which she said would end EU law’s primacy in the UK.
She attacked those who “have still not accepted the result of the referendum”, adding: “It is up to the government not to question, quibble or backslide on what we have been instructed to do, but to get on with the job.”
She told delegates: “We are going to be a fully independent, sovereign country – a country that is no longer part of a political union with supranational institutions that can override national parliaments and courts.
“And that means we are going, once more, to have the freedom to make our own decisions on a whole host of different matters, from how we label our food to the way in which we choose to control immigration.”
Mrs May said a “truly global Britain is possible, and it is in sight”, adding: “We don’t need – as I sometimes hear people say – to ‘punch above our weight’ because our weight is substantial enough already.”
Reacting to Mrs May’s comments about Article 50:
· The CBI said there was still an “urgent need for answers” on single market access and business regulations
· The cross-party Open Britain campaign warned Mrs May about being “gung ho” and said she should not “expect any favours from Parliament” on her repeal bill
· Labour’s shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry said the Article 50 commitment was “meaningless” without the government saying what it wanted to achieve
· European Council President Donald Tusk said the announcement brought “welcome clarity”
· Scotland’s Brexit minister warned the Scottish Parliament might block the “Great Repeal Bill”
· Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said it was “depressing” that government decisions were “being driven by ideology of the hard Brexiteers, rather than interests of country”
· Leading Brexit campaigner Iain Duncan Smith said the PM had set a “fairly reasonable” timetable and thought Article 50 could be triggered sooner than March
· Lib Dem leader Tim Farron called for clarity before Article 50 was triggered, adding: “We can’t start the process without any idea of where we’re going”
The PM, who had previously only said she would not trigger Article 50 this year, ended speculation about the government’s timetable on BBC One’s The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday morning.
She said it would be done by “the first quarter of 2017”, marking the start of a two-year exit process.
The process of leaving the EU would be “quite complex”, she said, but added that she hoped there would now be “preparatory work” with the remaining EU members so that “once the trigger comes we will have a smoother process of negotiation”.
She added: “It’s not just important for the UK, but important for Europe as a whole that we’re able to do this in the best possible way so we have the least disruption for businesses, and when we leave the EU we have a smooth transition from the EU.”
The PM also said June’s vote to leave the EU had been a “clear message from the British people that they want us to control movement of people coming into the UK”.
Well against all the world leaders in politics and economics what they thought would not, could not happen is still on track to become a reality!
For Bible Students this is a very exciting development in fulfilling Bible Prophecy. In fact it is the greatest sign of the nearness of Christ’s Return since the Establishment of the Jewish State in 1948!
Over 3000 years ago Bible Prophecy laid out the alignment of nations at the time of the end and Britain was not to be part of the European Union.
So despite what any man may think or say what we have just witnessed here is what Daniel said in Daniel 4:17 “This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will…”
And now we continue to see that despite any and all opposition, the current leaders of Britain are continuing to pursue BREXIT. So we continue to see the hand of God at work in the nations to ensure that His purpose unfolds on the earth. Britain will leave the EU of this we can be certain as this is a matter of Bible Prophecy. In the Bible, God has long said (2,500 yrs ago to be exact) that Britain will not be a part of the European Union when Russia and the EU invade the Middle East.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
