the British are out of the EU.
As the clocks in central London on Friday evening showed 23.00 Greenwich Mean Time - midnight Danish time - it was a british exit from the EU-cooperation is formalised.
Thus Article 50 of the EU treaty, as the then prime minister Theresa May in 2017 enabled, finally consummated. It has happened 1317 days after the brexit referendum in June 2016, and 47 years after Britain's entrance into the European Community.
Back in the EU is now the 26 remaining nations. Including Denmark.
A long, grueling process prior to the historic change in the calendar. The past five years, the brexit was mentioned more than 24,000 times in the house of Commons in the british parliament.
Alone has 9,000 times was the word mentioned last year.
But even if brexit is a complete chapter on the paper, the hard work has only just begun. In front of the prime minister, Boris Johnson and the EU toppolitiker waiting for a mountain that must be climbed before the 31. december of this year. Until then, virtually everything, as it usually is.
the Britons and EU citizens, can continue to travel, trade and work on the same terms as today. But for the new year, a new agreement will enter into force between the EU and the Uk on future cooperation.
This is the brexit-the saga is far from over.
