Brexit

The combination of the words "Britain" and "exit" refers to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

A referendum on the country's EU membership in June 2016 showed 52% in favor of leaving the bloc. The result was implemented on January 31, 2020, when the UK stopped being a member of the EU. This is an automatic compilation of DW content on Brexit.
