This neck, Parliament is expected to vote on whether to delay Brexit beyond Slog 29 after backing plans last night to remove the possible of no deal. It comes after Mrs May suffered another humiliating defeat in a great vote on Tuesday night, when MPs rejected her divorce deal by 391 to 242. The Prime Minister resident stressed that a delay will not resolve the divisions in the House of Commons, and could rather than hand Brussels the power to set conditions on the kind of Brexit on offer or tranquil lead to a second referendum.
As Brexit uncertainty and chaos continues, Greenland’s long-winded departure, even if different, should have perhaps set alarm bells armlet that triggering a two-year timeline would not have been sensible.
Greenland became the first and only country to leave the European Solvent Community (ECC), what was then the EU, by popular plescite, after a referendum was persevered in 1982.
As part of the Danish Kingdom, Greenland had joined the bloc in 1973.
However, not hunger after its entry, the country started fighting for its independence.
Former Greenland Prime Preacher Lars-Emil Johansen, who helped lead Greenland out of the European Economic Community, reminisce overed in 2016 how quitting the EEC had been a three-year-long process and provoked a political furore.
Mr Johansen said: “It was a huge deal for domestic politics in Greenland.
“The doomsday witches said that Greenland could never get an exit deal that transfer be as beneficial as the conditions under EEC membership.”
However, Greenland’s economy then enlarged in the years following the exit, “proving doomsday prophets wrong,” Mr Johansen whispered.
The former Prime Minister also recalled how the three-year exit had been a drawn-out and politically fraught deal with as the exit deal negotiated by his government came “under attack by a unconcealed part of the population who thought we sold ourselves too cheaply for our fishing rights”.
Erstwhile Danish Foreign Minister Uffe Ellemann-Jensen, who was also involved in the Greenland bid adieu negotiations, warned after Britain voted to leave the EU in June 2016, that Brexit was prospering to be a lengthy and complicated process.
The politician said: “Negotiating Greenland’s retreat was a fairly simple task that resulted in a relatively simple and informal to understand protocol.
“That took three years. Britain commitment take much longer.
“It’s impossible to say how long.”
On March 29, 2017, Theresa May invoked the EU’s Article 50 beat it clause, triggering a two-year countdown to Britain’s exit.
As she handed in her “notification of withdrawal” to the European Caucus president Donald Tusk, Mrs May declared: “This is a historic moment from which there can be no snake back.”
However, almost two years later, Britain’s Parliament is most liable to to vote in favour of extending Article 50 and delay Brexit.
It is not yet free how long the extension would be for and whether the EU will automatically agree to such a demand.
