Theresa May will formally begin the Brexit process by the end of March 2017, she has told the BBC. The prime minister confirmed the deadline for triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which sets in place a two-year process of withdrawal. She has also promised a "Great Repeal Bill" in the next Queen's Speech, which will overturn the act that took the UK into the forerunner of the EU.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, the prime minister said the repeal bill would mark "the first stage in the UK becoming a sovereign and independent country once again". "It will return power and authority to the elected institutions of our country," she said. "It means that the authority of EU law in Britain will end." Conservative Party chairman Patrick McLaughlin told BBC Breakfast this proved the party was "very serious" about starting the process of leaving the EU, but added negotiations would not be conducted in the public eye.
"You don't say exactly what you are going to negotiate on, but once negotiations are concluded we will say what we've achieved and how we've achieved it," he said. "To give a running commentary on every last sentence and paragraph would be ridiculous."
What's the difference between this and the 'elite cabal' we're so familiar with?

She also confirmed the creation of a "Great Repeal Bill" which will untangle us from unnecessary EU regulation
THEY ARE REPEALING NOT ONE SINGLE EU LAW loud enough?
Sure, we could change laws that are ours and thus change these if we wish. But we are exceedingly unlikely to do so because they are all related to trade with the EU.

Not to mention there isn't a single person who voted leave who would want to lose the human rights and workers laws we have gained.
