On Tuesday 26th June 2018, 733 days after the Referendum of voters’ preference for either remaining in or leaving the European Union, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II gave her Royal Assent to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill and it became an Act of Parliament.
In its press release the Dept for Exiting the EU states, ‘This historic Act will make sure the UK’s laws – entwined with over 40 years of EU law – continue to work from the day we leave, ensuring a smooth and orderly exit. It does this by transferring EU law into UK law where appropriate and creating temporary powers to correct the laws that will no longer operate appropriately.
‘Now that the Act has become law, the Government can start to use the powers in the Act to prepare our statute book for our exit from the EU. Work on this will begin in the coming weeks as Departments start to lay the relevant secondary legislation in Parliament.
‘This marks the next essential step in ensuring that the UK is ready for life after we have left the European Union.’ (Click above link for Secretary of State David Davis’ remarks.)
On a personal note, I’m extremely pleased that my eligibility to vote for the first time in early 1970’s has at long last been overturned. My late father annoyed me by saying, “You can’t put wise heads on young shoulders!”, but I was an idealist fresh out of the hippy era and its ‘Age of Aquarius’ that looked for a ‘brave new world’. Having grown up under the real threat of MAD (mutually assured destruction) nuclear war, objected to the atrocities of the never-ending Vietnam war and the global threats of communism versus rampant capitalism, the saner concept of a European Common Market keeping both of them apart offered the promise of a future of peace, prosperity and security. I suppose that could be why many Millennials prefer to remain in the EU – but ‘oldies’ have lived through and seen its increasingly undemocratic megalomania and say, “Beware!”
Perhaps Her Majesty was pleased to affix her signature to the final version of the Bill?
Did you note the sequential number (#31) of this ‘fulfilled prophecy’? (The title is in the plural because there are so many prophetic visions and words about this critical matter – see linked compilation).
I wasn’t going to use that phrase in the title but got suddenly and strongly nudged! AND LOL – I assure you this hasn’t been engineered, because I realised that’s the numerical reverse of number #13 (‘unlucky for some’) which happens to be used for the Noakes’ prophecy about the fall of the EU…!!
Could the Lord be using this to confirm or hint at something??
PS. SERVER FOLLIES! Absolutely fascinating that after I saved this draft and hit the ‘preview’ button the pc screen went totally blank and unresponsive for a minute or more! Slowly it returned to life as one tab-screen after another licked back on but nothing on WordPress as a server note indicated it was trying to access the cache. Then I added this PS and hit ‘publish’ – BUT the finished article doesn’t show on blog’s home page!!
Then I find it in listing of posts showing a publication time stamp of 13:24, whereas the email notification of this new post shows ’16:45′. WEIRD! WordPress’ proxy servers must be falling out of synchronisation. So instead of being top post it’s second down the home page! Don’t you just love it!
NB: The few times such cyber-chicanery happens to be when I’m working on a critical topic; or is it just coincidence – or maybe my accidentally using two editing tab-screens?
