Britain may soon be Britain again. Brexit continues to go forward despite the efforts of members of the House of Lords and from people like former prime minister Tony Blair. Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty may soon, and finally be triggered, thereby officially beginning the divorce of the UK from the European Union.
It will be an important moment – and it does look like it will happen – for all those who fight ever expanding bureaucracy. Brexit is a big win for everyday people throughout the West and likely beyond. It is a blow to crony governments and the big banks.

The bill will now be sent back to the Lords Monday night for debate and a vote. If passed, it would be sent to the Queen for a symbolic approval (royal assent), which could be given as early as Tuesday morning, according to Reuters. May would then be allowed to trigger Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, which allows any EU member to leave the organization unilaterally. Before the treaty was signed in 2007, there was no legal way to exit the EU.
May is expected to wait until the end of the month to engage Article 50.
