London, 10 September: In the spate of ongoing tensions in and around Britain, thousands of anti-Brexit marchers descended to demand that Britain stays in the European Union. It was the largest march ever seen in the country. The People's March for Europe comes ahead of a key vote in the House of Commons on Monday night. It comes days after politicians returned to Parliament following the summer recess and ahead of a critical Brexit vote. MPs will on Monday hold their first vote on a crucial piece of legislation intended to smooth Britain's departure from the European Union.
The Repeal Bill would formally end Britain's EU membership and transfer of around 12,000 existing EU laws and regulations onto the British statute books. Britons voted by 52 per cent to 48 per cent to end their membership of the bloc in a referendum in June 2016. Amid rising concerns about the progress of Brexit negotiations, Boris Johnson on Friday made a fresh attempt to push talks forward by suggesting Article 50 committed Brussels to discussing a future trading relationship with Britain at the same time as working through so-called Brexit “divorce” issues.
The British government has been continuously pushing the trade talks with the EU; however, the EU has been holding it trying to make “sufficient progress” as it is a matter of the EU citizens and more than that. EU has been debating with the UK parliament about the financial settlement rights, citizens’ rights and the Irish border which are the main highlighting concerns before any trade talks.
It is only the matter of time to witness if Brexit really happens.
