Article 50: UK Activates Process To Leave The EU

At last, it's happened. Against all hopes and wishes and assumption, just this moment, British diplomats in Brussels led by Sir Tim Barrow, the EU chief diplomat delivered a letter to the Europan Union President, Donald Tusk, formerly informing the EU that UK wishes to leave the Union. This is history as UK becomes the first full member-state of the EU to trigger the never-used before Article 50. The fun and shock cannot be estimated yet.

In the House of Commons however, the Prime Minister, on whose behalf the letter is delivered, was sweatingly fending off questions from MPs most of whom are in the parties opposite.

Until this moment, many of us have thought that this moment will never come. The 9 months diddle and tattle since the referendum made it even more suspicious that the government was not sure and is not wanting to do this. But finally, it came. And for a long time to come, whether the process is seen through or not, whether it is seen through successfully or wastefully, whether UK leaves the EU or not, 29th March 2017 will be a day to remember. One way or other, it could even become a public holiday.

Why Comic Relief's Red Nose Day Shames Me

Good job, Comic Relief. But it shames me.

Just two and a half years ago, the Scottish National Party (SNP) got their way and a Referendum for Scotland's independence from the UK was held. Today, due the the tension of Brexit, Scottish First Minister has proposed yet another Referendum. But you can argue that, in two and half years a lot has happened, and the SNP is in a strong position to ask for another Referendum.

What exactly did the Prime Minister want to achieve by such imposing behaviour?
