Brexit Bill pass un-amended with increased Commons majority
Parliament has finally passed the Brexit bill
Here's what it means...
With 498 British MPs voting in favour of the Article 50 Bill (which states that any member of the EU can leave in accordance with its own constitutional requirements) and only 114 voting against, we have avoided a ‘constitutional crisis’ and Brexit is officially happening, with plans well under way. So when could a Brexit actually be happening? Well, now. The bill is expected to become law today.
There has been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing with regards to enacting Brexit, but having just passed the final two parliamentary hurdles, Theresa May will now be able to trigger Article 50, marking the start of the two-year negotiation process.
Last night MPs in the House of Commons chose to overturn the amendment to the European Union Notification of Withdrawal Bill, then approved by the House of Lords, meaning one thing: the start of negotiations on Britain’s formal exit.
Prime Minister Theresa May has emphasised that she is committed to a hard Brexit and that by the end of the leave, the UK will have left the single market and will no longer have freedom of movement.
Last month, the government published the Brexit white paper where the entire process of what it means and how it will be done has been outlined.

This outlines the government’s 12 principles below.
