You may have seen the news that, over in Europe, the UK are going to trigger Article 50 on March 29th. However, there is every chance that you are not totally sure what that all means! But basically, it means that the official process of Britain leaving the European Union (EU), or ‘Brexit,’ will begin.
Since this has never been done before, nobody is quite sure what effect this will have on Britain as far trade, employment, immigration, and many other factors are concerned. In fact, it seems that the British public voted to leave the E.U. without really knowing what that would mean!
