Britain has finally taken a bold step to be the first country ever to leave the European Union at 11:01 p.m. GMT on Friday.

According to CNN, this development has occurred after three-and-a-half years with three prime ministers and seemingly endless votes in Parliament since the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Changes are bound to take place, despite the cataclysmic event, but won’t be so obvious to the public, CNN reports.

Another development that will also occur is that, the United Kingdom will enter the transition period that was agreed between the British government and the EU.

And the terms of that agreement mean that for the next 11 months, the UK remains an EU member state in all but name.

As the the UK formally leaves the EU, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will address the nation in what can be presumed to be an optimistic message.

To celebrate the new feat, parties are being held across the country. Other Brexiteers will also join in the celebration, including the body that was against Brexit so many times in 2019.
