VILLACOUBLAY AIRPORT, NEAR PARIS, FRANCE (REUTERS) – On Wednesday (March 29) British Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50, which will formally kickstart the process of Britain leaving the European Union.
It comes nine months after 2016’s June 23 referendum in which Britons voted to leave 52 percent to 48 percent.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that parliament must approve May triggering Article 50. This angered the Leave camp, which believed pro-Europe campaigners were trying to subvert the result of the referendum.

European Union leaders have said post-Brexit Britain can only get access to the EU’s single market if it accepts the freedom of movement of workers.
This will cause a political dilemma for the British government as 68 percent of voters hope for a “hard Brexit” and an end to freedom of movement, while 88 percent are in favour of a “soft Brexit” and the continuation of free trade, a National Centre of Social Research (NatCen) survey said.
Immigration, including the arrival of large numbers of people from the EU’s poorer east, was a major issue during the British referendum campaign that ended with a vote for “Brexit”.
On the streets of London, which voted to remain in last year’s referendum, commuters were hopeful for the “best deal possible”.
The NatCen survey was carried out between early February to early March 2017 and based on 2,322 people – half remain voters, and half leave voters.
