Theresa May signing the letter

THERESA MAY has signed the letter that will formally begin the UK’s departure from the European Union.

It will be delivered to the European Council President Donald Tusk at 12.30 BST today (March 29) by the British ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow.

The Prime Minister is set to deliver a speech to the House of Commons at the same time where she is expected to call for the UK to unite.

“It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country,” she will say.

  1. This psychologist’s explanation for how the Brexit vote came about may be of interest. (See the link below to the article in today’s Independent newspaper.)

    What the psychological perspective does NOT seem to explain however is why the Scots voted to Remain in the EU by 62% versus 38% while the UK as a whole voted for Brexit by a much narrower margin of 51.9% versus 48.1%. Maybe the much bigger margin against Brexit in Scotland just underlines how big the psychological differences are between the Scots and the English.

    Theresa May would do well to bear this in mind instead of imposing the will of the smaller percentage of English on the larger percentage of Scots. Her current head-on-collision approach with Scotland will only lead to a car crash of epic proportions if she doesn’t take evasive action to avoid it – hopefully without waiting until the last minute before skidding off the road.
