The road to Brexit – a timeline of events as May prepares to trigger Article 50

The road to Brexit has been a tumultuous one, with protests and lawsuits and a bitterly divided country. British Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50 on Wednesday (March 29) which means official talks on Britain leaving the European Union can begin.

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 result divided the country, with remain voters feeling their wishes and concerns are being ignored.

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.

Last weekend, leaders of the remaining 27 states met without departing Britain for a summit that they hope could relaunch the Union in the city where it was founded 60 years earlier. The Treaty of Rome, creating the European Economic Community (EEC) of France, Germany, Italy and the Benelux, was signed on March 25, 1957.

Lamborghini Aventador “Miura Homage” debuted in Hong Kong

LONDON, UK, November 26, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — As probably already ascertained from its name, the Miura Homage is designed to evoke Lamborghini’s first mid-engined supercar, launched 50 years ago this year, through a selection of retrospective color and trim combinations based on those of that original 1966 stunner. This beast coated in beauty drives like a devil.

Lamborghini has revealed the latest version of its Aventador Miura Homage. Launched earlier in the year, this latest example is heading to the Hong Kong market – which will get only one car of the fifty available.

Other colors available on the 50 Miura Homage cars include Rosso Arancio Miura and Blu Tahiti (in addition to Verde Scandal, another fifteen shades are available), while Nero Ade interior trim is also on the menu. Interior leather is double-stitched and carbon fiber trim predominates, while the exterior Miura badging is complemented by a limited edition plate in the cabin, denoting the car’s significance.

Power is as per the Aventador LP700-4, the 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 developing 690bhp at 8250rpm and 509lb ft of torque at 5500rpm. With all-wheel drive assisting in traction the 0-62mph sprint takes 2.9sec and a top speed of 217mph is quoted.

“With the original color and trim of the Miura, along with its vintage interior upholstery, the Aventador Miura Homage sets out to redefine the classic supercar experience of the modern era,” said Mr. Albert Wong, Director of Lamborghini Hong Kong of the new edition.
