How to get an EU travel advisory vote on UK leaving the bloc
An EU referendum on whether the UK should leave the bloc has been called for on Tuesday.
In the event that Britain votes to remain, it would need to go through the EU’s two-year process to formally become a member of the bloc.EU countries have a two-week window before they can trigger the two-stage exit process.
It’s a vote of no confidence in the British government by the European Council.
It would be a vote against the government in Parliament that would have to pass a new law, or be dissolved.
The referendum is scheduled for June 23.
The UK would need the backing of the other 28 member states, including France, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy, to get it through the first hurdle.
The EU’s executive has set the date for the vote, on April 23.
If it fails, Britain could be able to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would take the UK out of the EU and leave it without the EU budget.
However, that would require a parliamentary vote.
The vote is expected to be held on June 23, which means that it could take several weeks to get to a decision.
The vote would be one of the most consequential and controversial since the Lisbon treaty was negotiated in the early 1990s.
If it succeeds, the UK would have little to lose in leaving the EU but would face massive trade barriers.
Brexit would also set a precedent for the United States and the United Kingdom as they look to follow the same path as the European Union.
If the UK votes to leave, the country could be forced to rejoin the EU in 2019.
Britain would also have to leave the Schengen area, a travel-free zone that was negotiated by the EU.
