PDF Editor FAQ

Why is Elon Musk trying to build his own city in Texas?

Hi.Elon Musk plans to build a city around his massive SpaceX facility in southeast Texas and call it Starbase.And he appears to be serious about this as he has already spoken to Cameron County officials and requested they incorporate the City of Starbase, Texas.His plan is to expand a region called Boca Chica Village (where he already has a launch site), located on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico, and incorporate it into Starbase.Cameron County’s top official, Judge Eddie Treviño, stated:If SpaceX and Elon Musk would like to pursue down this path, they must abide by all state incorporation statutes. Cameron County will process any appropriate petitions in conformity with applicable law.This means that he can actually do it.He only has to ask local residents to sign a petition and submit it to Judge Eddie Treviño.Following this, the judge would order an election to see if it should be incorporated or not, and if successful, Starbase could not only become a reality but even have its own laws.Elon Musk and his company have already bought most of the houses in Boca Chica Village, with only a few residents refusing to sell theirs, so these people may be the only thing standing in his way.Or he might just do it “Up” style, and build around them.He is also going to build a Tesla factory, to make his Cybertrucks, close to the Austin airport, giving a job to five thousand people in the area.Would you like to live in Starbase?Thank you for reading.

How should you explain to children that a parent is going to prison for life?

Fuck. Thank you for the request, or whatever these are called. Here goes.I've asked myself so many different variations of the same basic question probably hundreds of times. I'm not even sure if I can give you a solid enough answer to wager the emotional stability and practical understanding of a child on it, but I'll try my best. I can't think of an area more fragile to navigate than the mind of a kid. Kids are important, important enough that someone shouldn't begin just flippantly handing out advice left and right like it's nothing, and with no personal experience to boot. As cliché as this probably sounds, they're what's gonna shape the future of the planet we stand on, and their development needs to be treated with care. They haven't seen or experienced all of the same bad shit that we have, or at least not yet, and it isn't that they'll never ever have to, but they can definitely manage avoid a lot of it as long as we give them the guidance we missed out on in our collective childhoods. Even the things which can't be avoided by them in their life still retains the possibility of being processed emotionally in a healthier way than it was by us in our youth, but that's dependent on both our treatment of them, and learning our lessons from mistakes in the past.I don't know where the hell I heard this, (it was definitely from another person) but someone once told me the whole point of being a parent in its most base form is to do a better job than your parents did with you, whether they did good or bad. And in my opinion that couldn't be truer.I don't have kids. I've been around my fair share of them I guess, and for some reason they usually end up liking me, which is nice really. My patience with most people in general is almost always in deficit, that's just a personal fault of mine and it has a noticeable effect on my perception of just about everyone, however not at all with children. I don't treat them especially different from adults, maybe with the two exceptions to that being a slight protective air, and the general omission of the more inappropriate things I say. When I'm around kids also happens to be the time it's easiest to use a filter, easier even than a job interview I would say. Something about what they represent, how new and just unfamiliar with fuckin everything they are, it just makes you want to try your best to foster the growth of that kid into a better adult than you could ever be. Or at least that's how I feel about it. My point is that what I lack in the actual hands on experience of being a parent, I feel like I can almost make up for by understanding somewhat how they think, (for the most part) how they'll connect the dots of life if left alone to do do it, (or shown how by someone who doesn't give a shit) and by how much I'm willing to invest of myself for the sake of a kid if need be.Just to give you an idea I want to give you a brief story, and then I'll tell you what I think you should do.I mentioned asking myself questions like yours, but I never started myself any questions like this about raising children until I'd already gone to prison, been released, bailed to Denver, gotten strung out, and then come back. One night in county I had a dream in which I was driving a car, and in the passenger seat of the car was a woman. I've never been able to remember what she looked like at all, and honestly I've never really given a shit, but what was really important was a little girl sitting buckled into the center of the backseat. She was about 5 or so, with red bows in her pigtails, a white undershirt shirt kind of thing (don't know what it's called, maybe a parent can help me out if you know) underneath a nice red dress, and nice little black shoes with these buckle looking things on them. In the dream I look at her in the rearview mirror, and she just smiles and keeps kicking the seat,not saying anything or laughing, just smiling and looking at me. What I remember of the dream is just a split second's worth. There's no words, names, or voices, if there were any then they've since been lost to my mind. But she was my daughter, for fuckin sure she was, and when I woke up I missed her like I'd never missed anything in my life. After a couple weeks the heartache began to die down, but at first I thought of her constantly. Wondered what her name was, what her favorite color was, all that good shit. It's one of the things that kept my mind off of the meth and needles through the worst part of the drug's emotional withdrawal. I'd had to go and put my blanket over my cell window on three separate occasions, as if to take a dump, so that I could sit on my bed and cry for a bit. I cried one time when I was about 3 months into my original sentence, and that was when I really accepted that I wasn't going home for a long time. But this, this was so different and so much worse. Even now there's a pang just thinking about it. I've never even gotten anyone pregnant before, definitely never wanted to, but for those two weeks or so that imaginary daughter of mine was more important to me than anything else in my life had ever been, so in spite of not knowing how it feels to raise a child, I feel like I have, at least, a beginner's grasp on how important the intricacies of doing so would be. And hey, maybe I don't, I honestly can't say. But when I got out of county and into rehab, everything I began learning about changing the way I thought, controlling how I felt, and I guess growing into an adult, would eventually be shaped and molded into a method for raising that little girl if I ever had her. I spent just as much if not a little more time thinking about that than I did for my own personal benefit. Whenever I'd learn something, my mind would ask itself how I would attempt to teach this to a child. Even the smallest most seemingly insignificant things I learned in there could be manipulated to be applicable to raising a kid. would be twisted into that question once I'd gotten it down myself. My least favorite question, which happened to come up the most when I'd start getting on one about it, was this drawn out sonofabitch.At what pointin their life, with how much discretion, omission, and transparency am I going to explain to my child that I robbed banks as a teenager and went to prison for it.There's so much that goes into that, I've never been able to give myself a firm, thorough answer I'd be willing to bet on, and I don't think I ever will until the situation is staring me in the face. I believe I'll be clearer how to handle the issue when the time comes.Because of course I'd tell them. If they just Googled me one day on a fuckin whim and saw what the web had to say, they'd get about 30 links to different information regarding the bank robberies, and a fuckin MySpace picture from 2006. I would definitely be able to explain it better. But how to do so without giving it a “cool” sounding kind of vibe. Because let me tell you, a lot of the people who've heard about that from me have had the initial impression that it was badass. I thought that too once, before I'd eaten the plate of shit it served me, but I wouldnt want my kid thinking that way.I also wouldn't want them to think I'm a bad person, or that I ever was a bad person. Just a lost person. When would I tell them though? When are they gonna have the intellectual capacity to grasp the more important ideals behind it, and I the familiarity with them to relate those ideals? 7? 8?What if they take it to school?And it just goes on. I drive myself fucking insane trying to just think of that shit on my own.Usually if I give someone advice on something, then I'm 100% behind it. I don't think I'm smarter than anyone else, or that I'm inherently more capable of solving a problem than the next guy, so whenever I do think that I might have something worthwhile to say, especially if it's going to affect another person's life, I don't want to be anything but confident that it's something the person should be hearing. Not that whatever advice given is the only way to do something, but that it's at least something worth trying. And if another person comes along who also has experience in the matter, and then makes a counter point or brings up something better, then I've got no problem at all with admitting I was wrong. I've been pretty fuckin wrong before and I'm here now so it doesn't kill me.But this is different. So maybe read this, consider it as a whole, and if you agree at all, then maybe use it to come up with something on your own. In the end what's most important to the children is going to come from how you give it to them. But a child learning how to cope with something like this just isn't something that's ever gonna come with some step by step instructions, and I'd rather lose an arm than be responsible for something as sad as a child incorrectly processing information as monumental and potentially traumatic as this.I've said all that, here's my advice. I don't know how old the children are, but I'd imagine if you're even attempting to explain this that they're aware of the difference of right and wrong. Explain to them that someone doing something bad doesn't make that person bad, and that even the best people can make mistakes. Help them understand that adults aren't held to the same standards as children's are. Things are treated differently, and sometimes more severely. No time outs or however you prefer to handle that. Also try to make sure they know that doesn't mean a person somehow becomes worse when they grow up, it just means that what they do in life carries with it adult sized consequences, both good and bad.In my opinion, the most important possible thing to explain to them though, is that their father doing whatever it was he did and getting life in prison for isn't in any way a reflection of his love for them. I'm convinced that if you don't explain that to them, and they're left alone with all of this information long enough, it's gonna happen, the conclusion that they'll draw is that it's somehow their fault, because in their eyes they are the most important thing in the world to Mom and Dad. Similar to children of divorced or separated parents. If Dad did something he knew was bad, and spends the rest of his life in prison for it, then he must not love me. If he did then he would have thought of that and not done what he did. Does that make sense?Again I don't know how old they are, but I feel like this scenario will be even more likely if they're approaching adolescence. Be very fuckin careful of that. In my experience with my own inner thoughts, it's exponentially easier to plant a negative seed about yourself or your life than it is to a positive one, so if I had to pick one point to really hang onto the most, it'd be that one.I guess to sum it up, explain the differences between consequences for adults and for children, explain to them the general idea of what prison is, and explain to them most of all that they aren't loved any less by their father because of what's happened. Losing the physical presence of a parental figure is going to be hard enough without adding the loss of their emotional presence as well. Definitely avoid giving them any kind of real details about what happened until they're old enough to handle it. I don't know what happened, but let's say it was something like murder, you don't want to have to include the introduction of something like what murder is at the same time as their father doing life in prison. Feel free to use your own discretion on that, but I'd be very careful about it. They're going to draw an image of what's happening with this parent in prison and what they illustrate in their minds is going to rely solely on what you tell them, and how you say it. Once you've said what you want to say, they'll take it to their own place where it's going to solidify and become much more real, so don't give them a potential fucking nightmare until they're old enough to differentiate between a nightmare and reality.Another thing to consider is to maybe not tell them just yet exactly how long the parent will be gone for. I have a feeling a lot of people will disagree on this one, totally cool, and again I'm fine with being wrong, but I feel like to a child the idea of a whole lifetime is so incomprehensibly long that it might as well be infinity, or not even actually exist at all. I'm not saying lie to them about or mislead them, but maybe vaguely give them the impression of it being for a long time, and when the time comes and they're a bit older you can explain to them how it works. I don't know where you are or what a life sentence is in your state, but in many places it isn't an actual life. Point being I definitely think this might be something that could be handled better at an older age.I don't know. This is without a doubt the gnarliest question anyone has ever asked me in my entire life. I promise I'm taking it as seriously as I can and if it isn't too much to ask, and you do end up using any of this to approach breaking this news to them with, would you be willing to give me an update about it? I can give you my email if you'd prefer, phone number, whatever, but Jesus. Like I said, this is in relation to a child, and it's just really important to me. If not that's cool, I get it. I just hope you're able to read this and nail down some of the finer details of handling the situation. I hope I was able to even help at all. I would never feel comfortable giving advice on raising a child because of how absolutely sacred it is, yet because it's so sacred it's impossible not to at least try. Most of all I hope they're able to take this in properly, but again, after it's all said and done, they'll be taking it in through you. You're gonna need to both understand and believe the ideas you'll be giving them if you're going to successfully help them to understand and believe them too. I hope they're okay. I've never been so emotionally invested in something I've said to another human being as what I'm saying to you and I really am wishing the best. Thanks again for the request, I hope you didn't get a shitty answer.EDITMaybe this is due to the gender of the person who requested the answer, but I went under the assumption throughout that the parent going to prison was male. Just wanted to say although the sex of said parent wasn't explicitly stated in the question, does not make my assumption sexist or some shit. But the application of any of this isn't dependent on which parent it is anyway, so I'm just gonna leave it.

What does the word/term "Brexit" mean?

BrexitJump to navigation Jump to searchFor other uses, see Brexit (disambiguation). article may be too long to read and navigate comfortably. Please consider splitting content into sub-articles, condensing it, or adding subheadings. (September 2019)Brexit (/ˈbrɛksɪt, ˈbrɛɡzɪt/; a portmanteau of "British" and "exit") is the scheduled withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU). Following a June 2016 referendum, in which 51.9% of participating voters voted to leave, the UK government formally announced the country's withdrawal in March 2017, starting a two-year process that was due to conclude with the UK withdrawing on 29 March 2019. As the UK parliament thrice voted against the negotiated withdrawal agreement, that deadline has been extended twice, and is currently 31 October 2019. An Act of Parliament requires the government to seek a third extension if no agreement is reached before 19 October.Withdrawal is advocated by Eurosceptics and opposed by pro-Europeanists, both of whom span the political spectrum. The UK joined the European Communities (EC) in 1973, with continued membership endorsed in a 1975 referendum. In the 1970s and 1980s, withdrawal from the EC was advocated mainly by the political left, e.g. in the Labour Party's 1983 election manifesto. From the 1990s, the eurosceptic wing of the Conservative Party grew, and led a rebellion over ratification of the 1992 Maastricht Treaty that established the EU. In parallel with the UK Independence Party (UKIP), and the cross-party People's Pledge campaign, it pressured Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron to hold a referendum on continued EU membership. Cameron, who had campaigned to remain, resigned after the result and was succeeded by Theresa May.On 29 March 2017, the UK government invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, formally starting the withdrawal. May called a snap general election in June 2017, which resulted in a Conservative minority government supported by the Democratic Unionist Party. UK–EU withdrawal negotiations began later that month. The UK negotiated to leave the EU customs union and single market. This resulted in the November 2018 withdrawal agreement, but the UK parliament voted against ratifying it three times. The Labour Party wanted any agreement to maintain a customs union, while many Conservatives opposed the agreement's financial settlement on the UK's share of EU financial obligations, as well as the "Irish backstop" designed to prevent border controls in Ireland. The Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party and others seek to reverse Brexit through a second referendum. The EU has declined a re-negotiation that omits the backstop. In March 2019, the UK parliament voted for May to ask the EU to delay Brexit until October. Having failed to pass her agreement, May resigned as Prime Minister in July and was succeeded by Boris Johnson. He sought to replace parts of the agreement and vowed to leave the EU by the new deadline, with or without an agreement.Many effects of Brexit depend on how closely the UK will be tied to the EU, or whether it withdraws before terms are agreed – referred to as a no-deal Brexit. The broad consensus among economists is that Brexit will likely reduce the UK's real per capita income in the medium term and long term, and that the referendum itself damaged the economy.[a] Brexit is likely to reduce immigration from European Economic Area (EEA) countries to the UK, and poses challenges for UK higher education, academic research and security. Following Brexit, EU law and the EU Court of Justice will no longer have supremacy over UK laws or its Supreme Court, except to an extent agreed upon in a withdrawal agreement. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 retains relevant EU law as domestic law, which the UK could then amend or repeal.Terminology and etymologyIn the wake of the referendum of 23 June 2016, many new pieces of Brexit-related jargon have entered popular use.Article 50Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union is a procedure in the treaty that sets out how member states can leave the Union, with a two-year timetable for leaving. Article 50 was triggered by Prime Minister Theresa May at the end of March 2017.BackstopA term referring to the Irish backstop, a part of the negotiated withdrawal agreement that will keep Northern Ireland in some aspects of the European Union Customs Union and of the European Single Market to prevent a hard border in Ireland, so as not to compromise the Good Friday Agreement. The backstop comes into force if the withdrawal agreement is ratified, and a trade agreement has not been reached before the end of the transition periodBlind/Blindfold BrexitCoined in September 2018 to describe a scenario where the UK leaves the EU without clarity on the terms of a future trade deal. EU and British negotiators would then have until 31 December 2020 to sign off on a future trade deal, during which time the UK would effectively remain a member of the EU, but with no voting rights.BrexitBrexit (like its early variant, Brixit) is a portmanteau of "British" and "exit". Grammatically, it has been called a complex nominal. The first attestation in the Oxford English Dictionary is a Euractiv blog post by Peter Wilding on 15 May 2012. It was coined by analogy with "Grexit", attested on 6 February 2012 to refer to a hypothetical withdrawal of Greece from the eurozone (and possibly the EU altogether, although there was never a clear popular mandate for it). At present, Brexit is impending under the EU Treaties and the UK Acts of Parliament, and the current negotiations pursuant thereto.This is shorthand for a model where the UK leaves the EU and signs a free trade agreement. This would allow the UK to control its own trade policy as opposed to jointly negotiating alongside the EU, but would require rules of origin agreements to be reached for UK–EU trade. It is likely this would lead to UK–EU trade being less "free" than joining the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), and result in additional border controls being required, which is an issue of contention, particularly on the island of Ireland. The Canadian–EU deal took seven years to negotiate, but Brexiteers argue it would take much less time between the UK and EU as the two participants already align on regulatory standards.Chequers AgreementThe short name given by the media to The framework for the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, the government's white paper drawn up at Chequers and published on 12 July 2018, which set out the sort of relationship the UK government wanted with the EU after Brexit. The government published the updated draft on 22 November 2018.Clean break BrexitThis term, used particularly by the Brexit Party, is more generally known as a no-deal Brexit. The Brexit Party have also used the simpler term “Clean Brexit” interchangeably with the longer term since early September 2019.Customs UnionSee also: European Union Customs Union and Customs Union between the EU and the UKA customs union is an agreement under which two or more countries agree not to impose taxes on imported goods from one another and to apply a common tariff on goods imported from countries not party to the agreement.Divorce billIt is expected that the UK will make a contribution toward financial commitments that it had approved while still a member of the EU, but are still outstanding. The amount owed is officially referred to as the financial settlement but has informally been referred to as an exit bill or divorce bill. While serving as Brexit Secretary, Dominic Raab said the UK will not pay the full financial settlement to the EU in a no-deal scenario but would instead pay a significantly lower amount to cover the UK's "strict legal obligations". The UK Government's estimate of the financial settlement in March 2019 was £38 billion. After normal member contributions payable to 31 October 2019 of £5 billion, a final settlement of £33 billion on 31 October is currently estimated by the Office for Budget Responsibility.Hard and soft Brexit"Hard Brexit" and "soft Brexit" are unofficial terms that are commonly used by news media to describe the prospective relationship between the UK and the EU after withdrawal. A hard Brexit (also called a no-deal Brexit) usually refers to the UK leaving the EU and the European Single Market with few or no deals (trade or otherwise) in place, meaning that trade will be conducted under the World Trade Organization's rules, and services will no longer be provided by agencies of the European Union (such as aviation safety). Soft Brexit encompasses any deal that involves retaining membership in the European Single Market and at least some free movement of people according to European Economic Area (EEA) rules. Theresa May's "Chequers agreement" embraced some aspects of a "soft" Brexit. Note that the EEA and the deal with Switzerland contain fully free movement of people, and that the EU has wanted that to be included in a deal with UK on fully free trade.Hard borderBecause of Brexit, a physical border could be erected between Northern Ireland, a constituent part of the UK, and the Republic of Ireland, an EU member state. This raises concerns about the future of the Good Friday Agreement (or Belfast Agreement), a peace deal signed in 1998 which helped to end the Northern Ireland conflict (The Troubles).Further information: Brexit and the Irish borderIndicative voteIndicative votes are votes by members of parliament on a series of non-binding resolutions. They are a means of testing the will of the House of Commons on different options relating to one issue. MPs voted on eight different options for the next steps in the Brexit process on 27 March 2019; however, none of the proposals earned a majority in the indicative votes. MPs also voted on four options on 1 April 2019 in the second round of indicative votes. Still, none of the proposals earned a majority.LeaverThose supporting Brexit are sometimes referred to as "Leavers". Alternatively the term "Brexiteers", or "Brexiters" has been used to describe adherents of the Leave campaign. Likewise, the pejorative term "Brextremist", a portmanteau of "Brexiter" and "Extremist" has been used by some outlets to describe Leavers of an overzealous, uncompromising disposition.Lexitalso Lexiter. A portmanteau of 'left-wing' and 'Brexit', referring to left-wing advocacy of EU withdrawal.Meaningful voteA meaningful vote is a vote under section 13 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, requiring the government to arrange for a motion proposing approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU to be debated and voted on by the House of Commons before the European Parliament decides whether it consents to the withdrawal agreement being concluded on behalf of the EU in accordance with Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union.Managed no-deal"Managed no-deal Brexit" or "managed no deal Brexit" was increasingly used near the end of 2018, in respect of the complex series of political, legal and technical decisions needed if there is no withdrawal agreement treaty with the EU when the UK exits under the Article 50 withdrawal notice. The Institute for Government has advised that the concept is unrealistic.No-deal BrexitThis means the UK would leave the European Union without a withdrawal agreement.Further information: No-deal BrexitNorway model/Norway plusThis is shorthand for a model where the United Kingdom leaves the European Union but becomes a member of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and the European Economic Area, possibly with the addition of a customs union ("plus"). EFTA and EEA membership would allow the UK to remain in the single market but without having to be subject to the Common Fisheries Policy, Common Agricultural Policy, and the European Court of Justice (ECJ). The UK would be subject to the EFTA court, which largely shadows the ECJ, have to transfer a large amount of EU law into UK law, and have little say on shaping EU rules (some of which the UK will be compelled to take on). The UK would also have to allow freedom of movement between the EU and UK, which was seen as a key issue of contention in the referendum.People's VotePeople's Vote is an advocacy group launched in April 2018, who calls for a public vote on the final Brexit deal. The People's Vote march is part of a series of demonstrations against Brexit.RemainerThose in favour of the UK remaining in the EU are sometimes referred to as "Remainers". The derogatory term "Remoaner" (a blend of "remainer" and "moan") is sometimes used by Leavers to describe adherents of the Remain campaign.Second referendumA second referendum has been proposed by a number of politicians and pressure groups. The Electoral Commission has the responsibility for nominating lead campaign groups for each possible referendum outcome.Slow BrexitThe term "slow Brexit" was first coined by British Prime Minister Theresa May on 25 March 2019 as she spoke to Parliament, warning MPs that Article 50 could be extended beyond 22 May, slowing down the Brexit process. A ‘slow Brexit’ implies a longer period of political uncertainty in which members of Parliament will debate the next steps of Britain's departure from the European Union.Background: the United Kingdom and EuropeFurther information: Foreign relations of the United Kingdom § Europe, Politics of the United Kingdom § European Union, and European integration "Inner Six" European countries signed the Treaty of Paris in 1951, establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). The 1955 Messina Conference deemed that the ECSC was a success, and resolved to extend the concept further, thereby leading to the 1957 Treaties of Rome establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). In 1967, these became known as the European Communities (EC). The UK attempted to join in 1963 and 1967, but these applications were vetoed by the President of France, Charles de Gaulle.Accession and period of European Union membershipMain article: History of European Union–United Kingdom relationsSome time after de Gaulle resigned as president of France in 1969, the UK successfully applied for EC membership, and the Conservative prime minister Edward Heath signed the Treaty of Accession in 1972. Parliament passed the European Communities Act later that year and the UK joined Denmark and Ireland in becoming a member of the EC on 1 January 1973.The opposition Labour Party won the February 1974 general election without a majority and then contested the subsequent October 1974 general election with a commitment to renegotiate Britain's terms of membership of the EC, believing them to be unfavourable, and then hold a referendum on whether to remain in the EC on the new terms. Labour again won the election (this time with a small majority), and in 1975 the UK held its first ever national referendum, asking whether the UK should remain in the EC. Despite significant division within the ruling Labour Party, all major political parties and the mainstream press supported continuing membership of the EC. On 5 June 1975, 67.2 percent of the electorate and all but two UK counties and regions voted to stay in; support for the UK to leave the EC in 1975 appears unrelated to the support for Leave in the 2016 referendum.The Labour Party campaigned in the 1983 general election on a commitment to withdraw from the EC without a referendum, although after a heavy defeat Labour changed its policy. In 1985, the second Margaret Thatcher government ratified the Single European Act—the first major revision to the Treaty of Rome—without a referendum.In October 1990, under pressure from senior ministers and despite Thatcher's deep reservations, the UK joined the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM), with the pound sterling pegged to the deutschmark. Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister the following month, amid Conservative Party divisions arising partly from her increasingly Eurosceptic views. The UK and Italy were forced to withdraw from the ERM in September 1992, after the pound sterling and the lira came under pressure from currency speculation ("Black Wednesday"). the Maastricht Treaty, the EC became the EU on 1 November 1993, reflecting the evolution of the organisation from an economic union into a political union. Denmark, France, and Ireland held referendums to ratify the Maastricht Treaty. In accordance with British constitutional convention, specifically that of parliamentary sovereignty, ratification in the UK was not subject to approval by referendum. Despite this, the British constitutional historian Vernon Bogdanor wrote at the time that there was "a clear constitutional rationale for requiring a referendum" because although MPs are entrusted with legislative power by the electorate, they are not given authority to transfer that power (the UK's previous three referendums all concerned the transfer of parliamentary powers). Further, as the ratification of the treaty was in the manifestos of the three major political parties, voters opposed to ratification had no way to express that opposition. For Bogdanor, while the ratification of the treaty by the House of Commons might be legal, it would not be legitimate—which requires popular consent. The way in which the treaty was ratified, he judged, was "likely to have fundamental consequences both for British politics and for Britain's relationship with the [EC]." This perceived democratic deficit directly led to the formation of the Referendum Party and the UK Independence Party.Euroscepticism, opt-outs and 'outers'Main articles: Euroscepticism in the United Kingdom and Opt-outs in the European UnionThatcher, who had supported the common market and the Single European Act, in the Bruges speech of 1988 warned against "a European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels". She influenced Daniel Hannan, who in 1990 founded the Oxford Campaign for Independent Britain; "With hindsight, some see this as the start of the campaign for Brexit", Financial Times later wrote. In 1994, Sir James Goldsmith formed the Referendum Party to contest the 1997 general election on a platform of providing a referendum on the nature of the UK's relationship with the rest of the EU. The party fielded candidates in 547 constituencies at that election, and won 810,860 votes—2.6 per cent of the total votes cast—but failed to win a parliamentary seat due to the vote being spread across the country. The Referendum Party disbanded after Goldsmith's death in 1997. prime ministers Thatcher (left) and Cameron (right) used Eurosceptic rhetoric while being in favour of the UK's membership and the development of the European Single Market. Euroscepticism—and in particular the impact of the UK Independence Party (founder and former leader Farage pictured centre) on the Conservatives' election results—contributed to Cameron's 2015 attempt to renegotiate the UK's EU membership and ultimately the holding of the 2016 referendum.The UK Independence Party (UKIP), a Eurosceptic political party, was formed in 1993. It achieved third place in the UK during the 2004 European elections, second place in the 2009 European elections and first place in the 2014 European elections, with 27.5 per cent of the total vote. This was the first time since the 1910 general election that any party other than Labour or the Conservatives had taken the largest share of the vote in a nationwide election. UKIP's electoral success in the 2014 European election is documented as the strongest correlate of the support for the Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum. UKIP won two by-elections (triggered by defecting Conservative MPs) in 2014; in the 2015 general election, the party took 12.6 percent of the total vote and held one of the two seats won in 2014.Policy opt-outs of European Union member states viewtalkeditCountry # ofopt-insoropt‑outs Policy areaSchengen Area Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) Area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ) Charter of Fundamental Rights Social ChapterDenmark 3 INT OO OO OO NO NOIreland 2 OI NO NO OI NO NOPoland 1 NO NO NO NO OO NOUnited Kingdom 4 OI OO NO OI OO FOLegendOI — opt-in – possibility to opt in on a case-by-case basis.OO – opt-out in placeFO – former opt-out that was subsequently abolished.INT – participates on an intergovernmental basis, but not under EU lawNO – fully participating in policy areaOpinion polls 1977–2015Main article: Opinion polling for the United Kingdom European Union membership referendumBoth pro- and anti-EU views have had majority support at different times since 1977. In the EC membership referendum of 1975, two-thirds of British voters favoured continued EC membership. There is Euroscepticism both on the left and right of British politics.According to a statistical analysis published in April 2016 by Professor John Curtice of Strathclyde University, surveys showed an increase in Euroscepticism (defined as a wish to sever or reduce the powers of the EU) from 38% in 1993 to 65% in 2015. Euroscepticism should, however, not be confused with the wish to leave the EU: the BSA survey for the period July–November 2015 showed that 60 per cent backed the option to continue as an EU member and 30 percent backed the option to withdraw.Referendum of 2016Main article: 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendumNegotiations for membership reformMain article: United Kingdom renegotiation of European Union membership, 2015–16In 2012, Prime Minister David Cameron initially rejected calls for a referendum on the UK's EU membership,[99] but then suggested the possibility of a future referendum to endorse his proposed renegotiation of Britain's relationship with the rest of the EU. According to the BBC, "The prime minister acknowledged the need to ensure the UK's [renegotiated] position within the [EU] had 'the full-hearted support of the British people' but they needed to show 'tactical and strategic patience'." On 23 January 2013, under pressure from many of his MPs and from the rise of UKIP, Cameron announced that a Conservative government would hold an in-or-out referendum on EU membership before the end of 2017, on a renegotiated package, if elected in the 7 May 2015 general election. This was included in the Conservative Party manifesto for the election.The Conservative Party won the election with a majority. Soon afterwards, the European Union Referendum Act 2015 was introduced into Parliament to enable the referendum. Cameron favoured remaining in a reformed EU, and sought to renegotiate on four key points: protection of the single market for non-eurozone countries, reduction of "red tape", exempting Britain from "ever-closer union", and restricting immigration from the rest of the EU.In December 2015, opinion polls showed a clear majority in favour of remaining in the EU; they also showed support would drop if Cameron did not negotiate adequate safeguards[definition needed] for non-eurozone member states, and restrictions on benefits for non-British EU citizens.The outcome of the renegotiations was announced in February 2016. Some limits to in-work benefits for new EU immigrants were agreed, but before they could be applied, a member state such as the UK would have to get permission from the European Commission and then from the European Council, which is composed of the heads of government of every member state.In a speech to the House of Commons on 22 February 2016, Cameron announced a referendum date of 23 June 2016, and commented on the renegotiation settlement. He spoke of an intention to trigger the Article 50 process immediately following a Leave vote and of the "two-year time period to negotiate the arrangements for exit."After the original wording for the referendum question was challenged, the government agreed to change the official referendum question to "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"Campaign groupsMain article: Campaigning in the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendumA "Vote Leave" poster in Omagh, Northern Ireland, saying "We send the EU £50 million every day. Let's spend it on our NHS instead."The official campaign group for leaving the EU was Vote Leave after a contest for the designation with Leave.EU. Vote Leave was later found to have exceeded its allowed spending limit during the campaign.The official campaign to stay in the EU, chaired by Stuart Rose, was known as Britain Stronger in Europe, or informally as 'Remain'. Other campaigns supporting remaining in the EU included Conservatives In, Labour in for Britain, #INtogether (Liberal Democrats), Greens for a Better Europe, Scientists for EU, Environmentalists for Europe, Universities for Europe and Another Europe is Possible. resultMain article: Results of the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendumThe result was announced on the morning of 24 June: 51.89 percent voted in favour of leaving the EU, and 48.11 percent voted in favour of remaining a member of the EU. Comprehensive results are available from the UK Electoral Commission Referendum Results site. A petition calling for a second referendum attracted more than four million signatures, but was rejected by the government on 9 July.United Kingdom European Union membership referendum, 2016National resultChoice Votes %Leave the European Union 17,410,742 51.89%Remain a member of the European Union 16,141,241 48.11%Valid votes 33,551,983 99.92%Invalid or blank votes 25,359 0.08%Total votes 33,577,342 100.00%Registered voters and turnout 46,500,001 72.21%Voting age population and turnout 51,356,768 65.38%Source: Electoral CommissionNational referendum results (without spoiled ballots) Leave: 17,410,742 (51.9%) Remain: 16,141,241 (48.1%) by Country of the United Kingdom/region of England (left) and by council district (GB) & UK Parliament constituency (NI) (right)Voter demographics and trendsFurther information: Causes of the vote in favour of BrexitAccording to researchers based at the University of Warwick, areas with "deprivation in terms of education, income and employment were more likely to vote Leave". The Leave vote tended to be greater in areas which had lower incomes and high unemployment, a strong tradition of manufacturing employment, and in which the population had fewer qualifications. It also tended to be greater where there was a large flow of Eastern European migrants (mainly low-skilled workers) into areas with a large share of native low-skilled workers. Those in lower social grades (especially the 'working class') were more likely to vote Leave, while those in higher social grades (especially the 'upper middle class') more likely to vote Remain.According to Thomas Sampson, an economist at the London School of Economics, "Older and less-educated voters were more likely to vote 'leave' [...] A majority of white voters wanted to leave, but only 33 per cent of Asian voters and 27 per cent of black voters chose leave. There was no gender split in the vote [...] Leaving the European Union received support from across the political spectrum [...] Voting to leave the European Union was strongly associated with holding socially conservative political beliefs, opposing cosmopolitanism, and thinking life in Britain is getting worse". Econometric studies show that "education and, to a lesser extent, age were the strongest demographic predictors of voting behaviour". Support for leaving was linked with "poor economic outcomes at the individual or area level" and with "self-reported opposition to immigration, but not with exposure to immigration".Opinion polls found that Leave voters believed leaving the EU was "more likely to bring about a better immigration system, improved border controls, a fairer welfare system, better quality of life, and the ability to control our own laws", while Remain voters believed EU membership "would be better for the economy, international investment, and the UK's influence in the world". Polls found that the main reasons people voted Leave were "the principle that decisions about the UK should be taken in the UK", and that leaving "offered the best chance for the UK to regain control over immigration and its own borders". The main reason people voted Remain was that "the risks of voting to leave the EU looked too great when it came to things like the economy, jobs and prices".Resignations, contests, and appointmentsMain article: Aftermath of the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendumAfter the result was declared, Cameron announced that he would resign by October. He stood down on 13 July 2016, with Theresa May becoming Prime Minister after a leadership contest. George Osborne was replaced as Chancellor of the Exchequer by Philip Hammond, former Mayor of London Boris Johnson was appointed Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and David Davis became Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn lost a vote of confidence among his parliamentary party, and an unsuccessful challenge of his leadership was launched. On 4 July, Nigel Farage announced his resignation as leader of UKIP.IrregularitiesSee also: Unlawful campaigning in the 2016 EU referendum and Russian interference in the 2016 Brexit referendumIrregularities have been alleged in the conduct of the referendum campaign.On 11 May 2018, the UK Electoral Commission found against Leave.EU, which ran a separate campaign to the official pro-Brexit group Vote Leave, following its investigations into alleged irregularities during the referendum campaign. Leave.EU's co-founder Arron Banks has stated that he rejects the outcome of the investigation and will be challenging it in court.In July 2018, the UK Electoral Commission found Vote Leave to have broken electoral law, spending over its limit. Also, the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee released an interim report on Disinformation and ‘fake news’, stating that the largest donor in the Brexit campaign, Arron Banks, had "failed to satisfy" the Committee that his donations came from UK sources, and may have been financed by the Russian government.LitigationThere has been litigation to explore the constitutional footings on which Brexit stands after R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (simply known as the "Miller case") and the 2017 Notification Act:In R. (Webster) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the High Court of Justice determined that the decision to leave the EU was an executive decision of the Prime Minister using a statutory power of decision found to have been delegated to her by the Notification Act.[better source needed] This case was criticised academically, and it is also subject to an appeal.The confirmation that the decision was an executive act was part of the basis of R. (Wilson) v. Prime Minister the impact irregularities in the referendum, which is the basis for the executive decision to leave, is being challenged, with a hearing on 7 December 2018.[clarification needed]Regarding the reversibility of a notification under Article 50, Wightman and others v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union was referred to Court of Justice of the European Union; the UK government sought to block this referral, taking the matter on appeal to the UK Supreme Court, but was unsuccessful. On 10 December 2018, the Court of Justice of the EU ruled that the UK could unilaterally revoke its Article 50 notification.Article 50 processTimelineBelow is the timeline of major events concerning Brexit.201623 June: The UK holds a referendum on whether to leave the European Union. 51.9% of voters vote to leave.24 June: David Cameron announces his resignation as Prime Minister.13 July: Theresa May accepts the Queen's invitation to form a government.
