After the UK departs the EU, what seven ideas will change
After the UK departs the EU, what seven ideas will change |After three years, three prime ministers and two elections, the UK has finally left the European Union on Friday, January 31 at 11:00 pm (23:00 GMT).
However, with that, it will immediately enter the 11-month transition or transition period. So what is the change in reality?
During this period, the UK
will continue to adhere to EU laws and continue to fund the EU. Some things will be exactly the same but some
will change completely.
1. UK members will lose their seats in the EU
Nigel Farage, who heads the British Brexit Party and was the
frontrunner for Britain’s exit from the European Union, will be one of the 73
MPs (MEPs) to leave his seat in the European Parliament, as Brig. At the same time, the UK will exit all EU
political institutions and agencies.
However, during this transition period, the UK will continue to
adhere to European laws and the European Court of Justice will continue to make
decisions in legal cases.
2. The UK will not be included in EU meetings
In the future, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will have to be
specially invited if he wishes to attend a European Council meeting.
Similarly, British ministers
will not be able to attend EU meetings.
3. Much will be heard about the trade
The UK will negotiate trade with other countries in the world and
new rules for selling and buying goods will be set.
As long as Britain was a
member of the European Union, it could not formally negotiate with the United
States and Australia. Supporters of
Brexit have been saying that their trade policy will improve the British
But there is still a lot to be achieved from the European
Union. A trade agreement with the
European Union is an important priority.
If a trade agreement is
reached, it cannot be executed until the transfer period is over.
4. The color of the British passport will change
After more than 30 years, the
blue British passport will return.
Announcing this in 2017,
Immigration Minister Brendan Lewis announced the return of a blue and golden
passport. It was first used in 1921.
The new color will be introduced over a period of several months and by the middle of the year, all new passports will be issued.
5. Bridge coin
From Friday, about 3 million commemorative coins of 50 pence will be released. They will be dated January 31 and will feature ‘Peace, prosperity, and friendship with all nations’.
The coin has had a mixed reaction in the UK, and some in the EU have said they will not accept the coin.
6. Britain’s Brexit firm will close
On the day of Brexit, the
team and organization that held talks with the European Union and the ‘New
Deal’ will be closed.
The European Union departing body, the Department for Exiting the European Union, was founded in 2016 by former Prime Minister Teresa May. Future negotiating teams will now sit on Downing Street.
7. Germany will not hand over criminals to the UK
It will not be possible for the UK to bring back the suspects who have fled to Germany.
Germany’s constitution does not allow the deportation of any of its citizens to a country other than the European Union.
Germany’s Federal Minister for Justice said that when the UK leaves the EU, it will be exempt from the facility.
It is not yet clear whether this restriction will apply to other countries as well. For example, Slovenia has said that the situation is complicated while the EU has not made a statement. Seven things that will stay the same as they are now
Because the transition period will begin immediately after Bridget, many things will remain as they are now, at least until December 31, 2020.
Flights, boats, and trains will operate normally.
During the transition period, British citizens will also have the freedom to stand in line for EU citizens on passport control.
2. Driver’s license and pet passport
They will remain in use as
long as they are legally valid.
3. European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
These are cards that can be used by British citizens outside the country in the event of illness or accident.
They can be used in all EU member states and Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein and will be valid in the transition period as well.
4. Living and working in the European Union
There will be freedom of transport during the transition period so that British citizens continue to work in the European Union as they are now doing.
Likewise, EU residents who
wish to live or work in the UK can do so.
British residents living in the European Union will continue to receive their official pensions and will continue to receive annual increases.
6. Contribution to the budget
Britain will continue to contribute to the EU budget during the transition period. This means that EU-funded schemes will continue to receive funds.
Trade between the UK and the EU will continue at no additional charge and no new sanctions will be introduced.
