BREXIT’s Article 50 of Lisbon Treaty

Saturday  25 June 2016

One of Britain’s Liars-In-Chief, David Cameron, pretended to take then high road by offering his resignation, but then proceeded down the low road by refusing to enforce Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to get Britain’s BREXIT vote to leave the elite’s faux- political union, created for and by unelected political hacks who would otherwise be unemployable elsewhere.

Taking the Nike’s 1988 advertising  slogan, “Just Do It,” Cameron refuses to admit in words what he proves in action: he is out of touch with the nation’s people he is supposed to represent, and instead, only takes those actions that serve the elite’s political union.
Cameron lacks the responsibility in leading Britain by refusing to “Just Do It”

Be prepared for Britain’s governmental sycophants to act in concert with the EU political sycophants to undermine BREXIT.  They will backhandedly conspire to invoke the Eagles’ Hotel California lyrics, “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”

Here is the simplicity of Article 50.  Watch the complexity with which it may never be enforced.

Article 50

1. Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements.

2. A Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention. In the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the Union. That agreement shall be negotiated in accordance with Article 218(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. It shall be concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council, acting by a qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament.

3. The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in paragraph 2, unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period.

4. For the purposes of paragraphs 2 and 3, the member of the European Council or of the Council representing the withdrawing Member State shall not participate in the discussions of the European Council or Council or in decisions concerning it.

A qualified majority shall be defined in accordance with Article 238(3)(b) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

5. If a State which has withdrawn from the Union asks to rejoin, its request shall be subject to the procedure referred to in Article 49.
