Brexit bill receives the Royal Assent, the United Kingdom will leave the EU as scheduled

The House of Lords had passed the bill with five amendments, but the House of Commons defeated all five. The House of Lords did not attempt to delay the legislation.

The Royal Assent was given earlier today.

So it is done.

The United Kingdom will leave the EU as scheduled.

And one of the first things they are going to do is try and go to a points based immigration system like Australia, smart and finally listening to the voters but it took the other side getting completely wiped out to do it.

From the article. The Home Office said it would introduce a points-based immigration system.

"A Home Office spokesman said: "We will deliver on the people’s priorities by introducing a points-based immigration system, attracting the brightest and best talent from around the world while cutting low-skilled immigration and bringing overall numbers down. “This firmer and fairer system will let us decide who comes to this country based on their skills and the contribution they can make - not where they come from.”

Not really.

From 1 February, the UK will enter into an 11-month transition period in which it will continue to follow EU rules but without representation in the bloc’s institutions.

This arrangement will come to an end on 1 January 2021, by which point the two sides hope to have completed negotiations on their future economic and security partnership, at the heart of which the government believes will be an ambitious free trade deal.

This should be fun. Like divorcing an ugly fat girl.
