Brexit Day London

Brexit Party MEP Ann Widdecombe, Wetherspoon founder Tim Martin, broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer and Brexit Party chair Richard Tice were also in attendance. From 9pm a large screen in Parliament Square showed a montage of news footage referencing Britain’s history in Europe. The crowd cheered Margaret Thatcher and a youthful Nigel Farage, but booed Tony Blair, David Cameron and Theresa May. A clock counting down to Brexit was projected on to the side of nearby Downing Street. Huge celebrations as a new era for Britain has started after the country left the EU, more than three years after Britain voted for Brexit. London Crowds Count Down To Official Brexit From European Union After 47 years of membership, the UK left the EU at 11pm on Friday, with Downing Street marking the occasion with a light show. It has taken three prime ministers and three Brexit secretaries for the UK to reach this stage – and the process is still not yet complete. An 11-month transition period begins where the UK will look to negotiate a trade deal with the EU. In a message to Britons, the European Parliament’s Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt said he would “work to ensure the EU is a project you’ll want to be a part of again soon”.
