(Before It's News)

The pro-European Union opposition has been trying to stall ever since the referendum. Lawsuits, House of Lords stonewalling, and intimidation have all been tried. But now the date has been set for the United Kingdom to invoke its right to leave the European Union.

On March 29, Prime Minister Theresa May will invoke Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon. According to the treaty, the European Union is required to negotiate and conclude an agreement with the United Kingdom:

1. Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements.

2. A Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention. In the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the Union. That agreement shall be negotiated in accordance with Article 218(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. It shall be concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council, acting by a qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament.

It is on March 29 that May will notify the European Council, triggering the treaty requirements to negotiate and conclude an agreement with the United Kingdom.

Sovereignty and self-determination are returning to the United Kingdom.
