|What May said on Brexit||“Even now, some politicians – democratically-elected politicians – say that the referendum isn’t valid, that we need to have a second vote… Others say they don’t like the result, and they’ll challenge any attempt to leave the European Union through the courts… But come on. The referendum result was clear. It was legitimate. It was the biggest vote for change this country has ever known. Brexit means Brexit – and we’re going to make a success of it.”
“There will be no unnecessary delays in invoking Article 50. We will invoke it when we are ready. And we will be ready soon. We will invoke Article 50 no later than the end of March next year.”
|England’s priorities||England is deeply politically and socially divided over both Brexit in general and the form Brexit should take. There are also significant concerns over the constitutional and economic impact of the country’s departure from the EU.|
