There has been some speculation in recent weeks that UK prime Minister Theresa May would not pull the trigger. That speculation appears to be false.
European Union president Donald Tusk announced May Expects to Start Brexit Talks by February.
European Union President Donald Tusk said he’d been told by Prime Minister Theresa May that the U.K. is likely to trigger formal Brexit talks in January or February.
Speaking at a summit in Bratislava, Slovakia, to which the U.K. was barred for the first time in four decades following the June decision to quit the EU, Tusk said May had laid out that timeframe during a recent conversation.
