What does the British Parliament mean by adopting a "historic" bill?

After a long tug of war between the two houses of parliament, the British Parliament passed the EU bill on the 20th. After the Queen's approval, the bill will officially become law, paving the way for the UK to withdraw from the EU in March 2019.

This withdrawal from the European Union, known as one of the most significant bills in British history, aims to convert existing EU law into British domestic law and prepare for the UK's post-Brexual law. British Prime Minister Teresa May said that the two houses passed the bill, which is an important step in supporting the British 'Brexit'. 'Brexit' will give Britain a brighter future. The UK has the financial, legal and border issues.

Treza May also said that in the next few weeks, the government will publish more details on the relationship between the UK and the EU in the white paper and submit the trade and customs regulations to the House of Commons.

Achieving a principled consensus in the UK

Yang Fang, an associate researcher at the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said that the passage of the bill marks a principled consensus on the main issues concerning Brexit in the UK and a phased progress in the Brexit negotiations. The passage of the bill helped Teresa May continue to push for the Brexit negotiations.

However, Yang Fang believes that although the bill gives the Mei government sufficient flexibility in the Brexit negotiations, whether the Brexit negotiations can proceed smoothly depends on the negotiations between the Mei government and the EU. British Conservative MP Niki Morgan also warned that the UK will compete with the EU for further trade and customs arrangements.

In terms of the Brexit method that has been debated for a long time, Yang Fang pointed out that from the current situation, there is less risk of a cliff-type 'Brexit' in the UK. However, the future situation still needs to be observed. The British hard-off Europeans hope to be completely separated from the EU politically and economically. The Soft Brexit hopes that Britain will be politically separated from the EU, but it will keep pace with the EU economically and support the UK to remain in the European single market and EU tariffs. In the league. The struggle between the two factions will continue in the future.

Brexit negotiations still have differences

It has been two years since the United Kingdom held the referendum on June 23, 2016, but the Brexit process is still going back one step at a time. Although the UK and Europe announced at the end of 2017 that the two sides agreed on the core break-up fee for the first phase of the Brexit negotiations, the British Northern Ireland and Ireland borders, and the citizenship of EU residents, the second phase of negotiations between the UK and Europe remains contradictory. There is still debate in the UK about hard Brexit and soft Brexit. Whether the UK remains in the European single market and customs union after the Brexit, the UK is still unable to talk to the EU.

At the same time, with the stalemate in the Brexit negotiations, many British people hope to hold a second referendum and let the UK stay in the EU. Some people think that the 2016 referendum is only about whether to leave or stay, and no one knows what it might mean at the time. They even complained that they were deceived by the statistics and facts released by the activists. Therefore, another referendum is now required.

Although Teresa May's spokesperson has said that the UK will not hold a second referendum on Brexit. However, the debate over the Brexit and the European factions undoubtedly reflected the tearing of public opinion and the split of Britain. (Overseas Network Dai Shangyu)
