A very interesting session in Parliament leading up to Theresa May’s statement invoking Article 50.
May began her statement with the announcement that the six-page letter invoking Article 50 had been delivered to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk by Britain’s EU ambassador formally initiating negotiations of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.
May’s statement begins at 44:35 of video.
Live from the House of Commons. Theresa May will call on the British people to unite as she triggers article 50, beginning a two-year process that will see the UK leave the European Union and sever a political relationship that has lasted 44 years.
Below is the Article 50 letter:
Donald Tusk’s statement to Britain: “We already miss you.”
