British Brexit bill becomes law

(From The Hill)

The speaker of Britain’s House of Commons on Tuesday announced that legislation allowing the country to leave the European Union (EU) has become law.

Speaker John Bercow said that the EU Withdrawl Bill received royal assent from Queen Elizabeth II, resulting in the bill becoming law.

The legislation repeals the 1972 European Communities Act, which made Britain a member of the EU.

The bill’s approval is expected to give the U.K. more leverage in negotiating their departure terms with the EU.

There’s still hardball (cricket?) to play with the Germans, but the Brits have tangled with them before.
