Brexit – exiting the European Union

In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the European Union, an institution it had been a member of since 1973. With Brexit comes an end to free movement of people, goods, capital and services across the EU, and an end to much of the legislation that has come into force in the UK in recent years. Only time will tell what the full impact will be of this decision.
