Tonight the United Kingdom finished the final step as required by Great Britain’s Supreme Court when the Parliament passed the bill to trigger Article 50 by over 384 votes (from the UK Telegraph):

Boris Johnson says ‘history has been made’ after MPs pass Bill to trigger Article 50 by 498 votes to 114

From the article:

Boris Johnson said that “history has been made” after MPs voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday night in favour of triggering Brexit negotiations and beginning the process of leaving the EU.

The Foreign Secretary called it a “momentous” night as MPs voted four to one in favour of triggering Article 50. Kenneth Clarke, a former chancellor, was the only Tory MP to oppose it.

This was the final obstacle to triggering the negotiations for the United Kingdom to formally withdraw from the globalist nightmare known as the European Union. Despite last minute hopes created by the liberal British media and the Labour Party, their hopes were shattered quickly as the vote was completed.

The reaction of the Pound Sterling today? Meh:
