Theresa May went all Game of Thrones during her address at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham on Sunday, as she basically told E.U. federalists to ‘Bring it!’
In a clear display of Elizabethan sovereign defiance in the face of constant E.U. bullying & threats since last June’s vote, May laid to rest any uncertainty and stated that Britain would leave the E.U. no later than 31st March 2017, with full exit completed by early 2019.
“Let me be absolutely clear, there will be no unnecessary delays in invoking Article 50; we will invoke it when we are ready, and we will be ready soon. We will invoke Article 50 no later than the end of March next year.”

Addressing Conservative conference for the first time since becoming Prime Minister, Mrs May made clear that border controls are a red line in the Brexit negotiations, saying that, “we are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration again”. Full Article
