It looks like the British exit from the European Union (Brexit) is finally approved by a vote in Parliament, more than three years after the British people voted to leave the EU.

After years of delays, backtracking, dithering, and the flat-out refusal of an entire British political party to accede to the will of the voters, Parliament has finally voted to approve the Brexit deal.

British MPs have voted 330 to 231 to approve Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, the Daily Mail reported.

The historic EU Withdrawal Agreement cleared the House of Commons on Thursday afternoon even in the face of Labour Party opposition.

“It is the final major Commons hurdle which the so-called WAB had to navigate and it will now head to the House of Lords next week for further scrutiny before the UK leaves the EU on January 31,” the paper reported.

At long last, it appears that the UK will leave the EU on January 31 of this year, an outcome that as anything but guaranteed only a month ago despite the 2016 vote by the British people that the country exit the EU.

The massive victory that conservative Boris Johnson had last year made Brexit a key issue for the British Parliament.

Still, nearly the entire British Labor Party continued to oppose the will of the people ever since the 2016 vote. However, their opposition has eroded their once powerful status in the government.

EU officials fear that Brexit will open the door for other nations to quit the EU putting the political Union’s long-term existence in doubt.

The EU is also attempting to hold trade deals over Britain’s head to try and force the country to stay in the EU.
