Brexit 2019
On 23 June 2016, 51.89% of voters - representing 37.44% of eligible voters - voted in favour in the UK referendum on leaving the European Union.

Since then, there have been repeated headlines about the Brexit chaos and the struggle of both sides for an orderly and clean implementation of the popular vote. This seems to be hoped for, but unexpectedly within reach.

In any case, the withdrawal of the United Kingdom on 29 March 2019 will mark a turning point in British and European history.

This selection looks at the history of the UK-EU relations and the UK during the 1970s, the period when the country became a member of the EU.
