And so, it finally begins. This Comment by the Daily Express says it all. The path is now clear.

Historic step on path to restoring our democracy

THE Queen’s in-tray this morning contains one of the most important pieces of legislation she has ever been asked to sign into law.

The Queen will today grant Royal Assent to the Government Bill

It is no exaggeration to say that when Her Majesty today grants Royal Assent to the Government Bill giving Theresa May the right to trigger Article 50 and take us out of the EU it will be a historic moment.

The architects of the Lisbon Treaty did not expect Article 50 to be used. They believed – as did the whole of the European political establishment – that no nation would ever leave their federalist project.

The phrase “ever closer union”, so beloved of the Eurocrats, may as well have been written in stone so certain were they that it would continue indefinitely.

Fortunately they were wrong. Instead the British people stood up and demanded the return of self government.

This is what Theresa May is now in a position to deliver. We can expect her to start the process by informing the EU that she is invoking Article 50 between now and the end of the month.

When she does it will be a major step on the path to restoring our democracy and another key date for the history books.

This morning, just after 11 am, the Queen signed the Royal Assent leaving the way clear for Britain to leave the EU.  Now we must be forever vigilant that we are not betrayed by politicians yet again.
