British Prime Minister Theresa May has committed to the final Brexit vote that will be sent to both houses of the UK Parliament to officially extract the UK from the European Union.

May has said that the UK has had a “hard brexit.” With the goal of full immigration control and law-making, May feels that the UK cannot be “half in, half out.”

“I am sure the British Parliament will want to deliver the views of the British people and respect the democratic decision that was taken,” May said.

There are British citizens that still feel that the UK should stay in the European Union. Analysts believe that May will prevail after a general election even though it is hard to predict Parliament’s vote.

Until the decision from Parliament is implied, the UK still remains in the EU, which means that it can trade freely with the other 27 EU countries. If the UK were to leave the European Union, they will have to try to create agreements and ties with the 60 other countries that are associated with trade within the EU.

“Brexit must mean control of the number of people who come to Britain from Europe. And that is what we will deliver,” May said to reporters at her latest press conference.

With a possible change in the future, the citizens of the UK could have restrictions of living in the countries that are in the European Union.

The EU has many regulations for borders of countries. The Scottish Prime Minister wants to stay in the European Union, which can impact the borders between Great Britain and Scotland.

“Nobody wants to return to the borders of the past, so we will make it a priority to deliver a practical solution as soon as we can,” May said.

The future of the UK is now in the hands of Parliament. The European Union’s most successful economy’s future could significantly change in the near future.
