Done! Britain stands alone, exits EU

At the stroke of 11 last night, the United Kingdom ended 47 years as a European Union member.

The moment marked the end of a battle, starting with a close 2016 referendum that polarized the nation, signs of which were evident in Friday’s celebrations and candlelight vigils.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the divorce’s most prominent advocate, vowed to “bring this country together.”

Is it really done? Yes, but Britain’s trade and other relationships with the bloc continue until the end of the year, providing a tight deadline to negotiate new arrangements.

Britain has named 11 months transition period to negotiate with the EU on how their future relationship would be, the transition ends by December 31 2020.
