DSC_0632 (1)A rare cliffhanger in British politics ended Wednesday afternoon when a five-hour meeting of the country’s 21 cabinet ministers and the prime minister. Theresa May, at 10 Downing Street to consider a draft agreement of May’s Brexit plan, negotiated by British and EU officials.

The prime minister emerged from the meeting looking rather tired and announced to waiting reporters that her cabinet had approved the plan.

The agreement, which still requires ratification by the parliament as well as by EU leaders, sets forth what Britain will pay to leave the European Union, what rights Europeans living in Britain will have in a post-Brexit world, and how the 21-month transition period will work.

The agreement includes language to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and the Irish Republic, which will remain in the European Union.

Those in favor of Brexit in the United Kingdom believe that Britain will prosper once free from the European Union, which many cast as a failed German-dominated experiment in European integration.
