It's Official

The objections of the Lords were turned back, and Parliament has authorized Theresa May to negotiate Brexit with a largely free hand:
Parliament has passed the Brexit bill, paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the European Union.

Peers backed down over the issues of EU residency rights and a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal after their objections were overturned by MPs.

The bill is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law on Tuesday.

This means Theresa May is free to push the button on withdrawal talks - now expected in the last week of March.
This is not going to the path to prosperity that the Brexit supporters, nor the disaster that Brussels, Berlin, and Paris hope it to be, but will be a clusterf%$#, and it is going to be a mess.

In 5 years it will have sorted itself out, and, and other EU members will see that the UK isn't a post apocalyptic wasteland, and they might consider edging for the door, particularly if the Germans continue to run things.
