*UPDATE: Massive Crowd Gathering Outside Parliament in Final Hour*

After more than three years of brutal British politics, multiple elections, and failed governments, the United Kingdom will formally exit the European Union at midnight in Brussels, 6pm on the east coast of the United States.

“Britain will formally leave at 11 p.m. U.K. time (6 p.m. ET) and Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to address the public about an hour before the departure time. Elsewhere throughout the country, the day will be marked by celebrations and some mourning from those opposed to the move. But in typically British fashion, the celebrations are expected to be muted,” reports Fox News.

“The 2016 vote to leave the E.U. in a one-off referendum sent shockwaves throughout the globe and is frequently cited as a groundbreaking populist moment that previewed President Trump’s victory months later in the U.S. general election,” adds Fox.

BREXIT BOSS: Boris Johnson Will Be Next UK Prime Minister, Declares Himself ‘The Dude’ to ‘Deliver Brexit’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.23.19

Boris Johnson will become the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Wednesday, when he will be invited by Queen Elizabeth II to form a new government after being elected by his Conservative Tory Party.

Once officially in office, Johnson will have just 100 days to forge a Brexit Deal to take the UK out of the European Union by October 31st.

“In a sharp break from buttoned-up Theresa May, BoJo used his victory speech to make a string of jokes as he pledged to unite the shattered Tory party,” reports the Sun.

“I know some have already pointed out ‘deliver, unite and defeat’ was not the best slogan because it spells out ‘dud’. But they forgot the final E – for ‘energise’!” said Johnson. “I say to my doubters – DUDE, we’re going to get Brexit done on October 31.”

“Many congratulations to @BorisJohnson on being elected leader of @Conservatives – we now need to work together to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government. You will have my full support from the back benches,” posted outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May on social media.

May announced her resignation last month after repeatedly failing to reach a Brexit agreement within her own government; missing multiple deadlines and asking the EU for several extensions.

BREXIT BREAKDOWN: British Prime Minister Says EU Talks Have Totally ‘STALLED’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.21.18

British Prime Minister Theresa May says Brexit negotiations with European Union officials have completely “stalled” after EU authorities flat-out rejected her separation proposals; claiming they “rejected her plans without explaining why.”

According to Reuters, EU leaders in Austria slammed May’s initial proposal, saying she needed to yield on demands for “ground trade” and the United Kingdom’s border with Ireland.

“It’s not acceptable to simply reject the other side’s proposals without a detailed explanation and counter proposals,” said the British Prime Minister.

“So we now need to hear from the EU what the real issues are, what their alternative is, so that we can discuss them. Until we do, we cannot make progress,” she added.

A key point of contention is the United Kingdom’s border with Ireland, with EU officials demanding there can be no “hard barrier” between the two nations.
