Brexit is described as the process of the UK leaving the European Union, Following a referendum held on 23 June 2016. It has since unravelled as one of the most divisive policies in British history.

Labour and Conservative parties have seen there popularity fall in EU elections, largely down to the Brexit process.
As the public has voted to share their discontent of the political process, by tactical voting and protest votes, as the EU elections have become redundant formality since the UK will be leaving the EU.
It has also now become evident that one of the main campaigners for the ‘Leave campaign‘, Boris Johnson, had lied or mislead the public and is facing a court hearing, just as he is preparing to launch a leadership campaign to take the reigns of the disunited conservative party.
In the referendum which was held on 23 June 2016 in which 51.9 per cent of those voting supported leaving the EU, the Government, led by the new leader of the Conservative Party, Theresa May who invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union.
Which started a two-year process which was due to conclude with the United Kingdom exiting the European Union on 29 March 2019 – a deadline which has since been extended to 31 October 2019.
When it will be leaving is still unclear, that all depends on who is elected as the next leader of the Conservative party in July 2019.
