In 2016, a majority of the British people (51.9%) voted to leave the European Union. Without saying how the question was not asked. Theresa May became prime minister with a task: “to deliver,” to realize the Brexit which is “the will of the people,” “the will of the people.”
Parliament tore apart
Theresa May wanted to bypass parliament first, but she was called to order by the Supreme Court. In November 2018, she concluded an agreement with the European Commission on divorce, and her ordeal begins months and months of battles in Parliament, which answers her three “no” votes.
