If BREXIT can be stopped, we will organise a get-together to discuss and even celebrate that event. Please refer to our Hamburg English Pages Facebook Page and see Events. The event could take place in postcode area 22609, next to the International School. Some of the Brexit related Facebook groups, based in Germany, organise meetings on a monthly basis. As our FB page is for all English speaking people, this website page has been created, to avoid too many Brexit posts.

09.01.2019 - The petition “STOP BREXIT” and others : https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/226509
The Petitions Committee (the group of MPs who oversee the petitions system) met today and agreed to schedule a debate on Monday, 14th January 2019 on the following group of petitions expressing different views on leaving the European Union:

STOP BREXIT https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/226509
Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/229963
Leave the EU now https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/221747
Walk away now! We voted for a No Deal Brexit https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/235185
Grant a People's Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/232984
To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/231461
Stop Brexit if parliament rejects the deal https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/236261

The Committee has decided to have a single debate on these petitions because it wanted to ensure they were debated as soon as possible, so they would be less likely to be overtaken by events. The Committee has included some smaller petitions because they are very similar to those with 100,000 signatures.

The debate will start at 4.30pm. You can watch it at http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Commons. A transcript will be published the following day at https://hansard.parliament.uk

You can follow the Petitions Committee on Twitter @HoCpetitions

We will now reduce posts to a minimum and attempt to find the important headlines, analysis and details if what might happen next. Update: 21.03.2019
 
Jeremy Corbyn Walks Out Of Cross-Party Brexit Talks 'Because The Independent Group Attended'. A Labour spokesman said he left because it 'wasn’t the meeting that had been agreed'. Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said: "That is rather a strange way to behave in a national crisis.". In the meeting, May is said to have restated her case for her deal without entertaining any of the alternatives suggested. She also reportedly suggested the third meaningful vote could appropriately take place on Monday, 1st April 2019. www.huffingtonpost.co.uk - 20.03.2019. Admin: If BREXIT was not for real, we would think it's a 1st of April joke!

The problem is not so much Theresa May - it's that Britain is now ungovernable. There can be no 'genuine leadership' from a political class that has become totally divorced from ordinary people - Guardian 14.04.2019
Owen Smith MP: "Brexit is a racist, xenophobic, right-wing, reactionary project. "Brexit is exacerbating the underlying problems in our society. It is a racist, xenophobic, right-wing, reactionary project and we of the Labour Party should be fighting against it with every sinew of our being... There's an opportunity to come and speak and march against it on 23rd of March. People the length and breadth of Britain should join us for that and make your voice heard."

MPs have voted to delay Brexit beyond March, which is the first stage.
The UK is scheduled to leave in just two weeks, as you can see on our website ticker, but the decision by parliament now means that May will request an extension to Article 50 of at least three months.

The prime minister could request a significantly longer delay to Brexit, if MPs reject her deal for a third time next week, on Wednesday 21st March. The saga continues!
All remaining 27 EU member states would have to agree to an extension of Article 50. Would Spain join in, without agreements on Gibraltar? Would the anti-EU government in Hungary be interested?
Members of Parliament have voted to delay Brexit, in response to Theresa May's struggle to get her deal through the House of Commons. MPs on Thursday voted by 412 to 202 for a motion which instructs the prime minister to ask the European Union for an extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process. If accepted by all the 27 other EU member states, it means that the United Kingdom will not leave the EU on 29th March, as originally scheduled.
May has told MPs that if they agree to back a Brexit deal by Wednesday next week, the UK's departure will only have to be delayed by three months, meaning Brexit would take place on 30th June. However, if the House of Commons does not approve a deal by Wednesday, the UK government will be forced to ask for a much longer delay, in order to create time to find a new way forward, the prime minister has said.

Mrs May says the government could continue negotiations or have a second referendum, but this would damage the trust between the British public and the House. The EU has been clear that the deal on the table is the only one available, the PM adds. The prime minister says Andrea Leadsom will make an emergency business statement shortly, which will include a motion on a short-limited technical extension to Article 50. "Such a short technical extension extension is only likely to be on offer if a deal is in place," she adds. © BBC 13.03.2019

Vote tomorrow for an extension to Article 50. Corbyn: Extending Article 50 is 'now inevitable'. SNP's Westminster Leader Ian Blackford says: "We are in a constitutional crisis. "What we see from the prime minister is a denial of the facts... her deal is dead." Mr Blackford says he is "delighted" that the House has expressed that under no circumstances it wants a no-deal Brexit. May warns about threat of another referendum. Talk of extension. 29th March in doubt. House risks losing trust of people, May says. Admin: trust has already been lost. 13.03.2019 English Pages Germany
The BBC's political correspondent, Vicki Young, says that there are "lots of rumours" that ministers and even Cabinet ministers may well be resigning from government over their votes this evening. Former leader of UKIP Nigel Farage says that he accepts that the UK may no longer be leaving the EU on 29 March. He says that the prime minister and Parliament do not have the "will to see it through". He adds that the withdrawal agreement tabled was a "far worse situation" than being members of the EU. "In the end, we are going to get Brexit, because the genie is out of the bottle," he says. © BBC 13.03.2019

© BBC. 13.03.2019 - 20:22. With the government defeated on the Spelman/Dromey amendment by four votes, Conservative MP Damian Green now stands to move his amendment (f). This amendment (f), referred to as the "Malthouse Compromise", sets out the process for a "managed no-deal". It requests:

- The government publishes tariff schedules

- An extension of leaving to 22 May 2019

- "Mutual standstill agreements" between the UK and EU until the end of 2021, including payments to the EU

- A unilateral guarantee of citizens' rights MPs are now voting on this amendment, with a result expected shortly

U.K.'s Theresa May to Consider Delay to Brexit Date | Bloomberg 25.02.2019
25.02.2019 | Corbyn is expected to address the Parliamentary Labour Party this evening and relay the following plan for Brexit:

1. Labour will put forward an amendment to May's meaningful vote calling for a brexit compromise - which is basically a 'soft brexit' - a close relationship with the EU, customs union and single market etc

2. Labour will support the Cooper/Letwin amendment that calls for 'no deal' being taken off the table.

3. If the House cannot agree to support Labour's compromised deal, and yet again fails to support Theresa May's unpopular deal - leaving only exiting with no deal on the table - Labour will table a motion to go back to the people for a Second Vote.

Corbyn is following the Labour Party conference policy on Brexit to the letter.

The 'no confidence' motion failed, so there was no support for a General Election.

Now the pressure will be back on the Conservative Party to make up their minds on what they can agree on:
1. Support May's Withdrawal Agreement
2. Support Corbyn's Brexit compromise
3. Support a No Deal Brexit
4. Go back to the public for a second referendum.
What do you think they will choose?

© CLICK FOR TEXT SOURCE | Theresa May made the UK's decision to leave the EU solely on the basis of an advisory referendum which she knew was corrupted & without a plan for the future agreed by Cabinet. No rational Prime Minister properly seeking to discharge her responsibilities would ever have done such a thing. The effects of such folly are now self-evident. If the Court of Appeal hides behind a time bar to deny Judicial Review of a decision so critically impacting the British & EU Citizens' rights in UK & the rest of Europe, it'll be in breach of its duty of sincere co-operation. The Judiciary has been the one branch of Government which has withstood the pressure of Brexit relatively well. If the Court of Appeal fails, then we are completely undone; the Rule of Law is gone; Democracy farewell. Hopes are pinned on @UKEUchallenge. Given the Court of Appeal has given permission for an expedited hearing, one imagines they are prepared to consider waiving the time bar. Too much is at stake right now and parliament is a lottery.

Our government is relentlessly pursuing the implementation of a policy derived from an unlawful mandate, whilst, at the same time, chooses to ignore the corrupt and illegal practices that delegitimised that mandate in the first place. Dr. Robert Palmer is a Law Lecturer at the Open Univerity faculty of Business & Law & an avid supporter of our case. This is his first excellent first piece published in January. A follow-up piece called: 'The Brexit Files: Part II. Is Wilson vs. the Prime Minister the silver bullet that will kill Brexit?' will be published very soon.

29.01.2019. Stock markets remain quiet on the next debate day, that will probably lead to disaster. May continues to protect her own party and ignore the people. Regardless of what happen today, only a law change will stop, or change the course of Brexit. The debate and the votes, will not change anything yet. May keeps telling everyone that she will travel back to Brussels, to continue deal talks. The EU is not prepared to talk any more. May is playing games. The votes for amendments, is not going well. The hope for another referendum, is dwindling

I am deeply concerned that the conflict in NI will be re-opened. Brexit is a Frankenstein monster created by Cameron. Whether you stop it now, or seek to give people a chance of reconsideration by public vote, it means trouble. But on balance, stopping Brexit would:
A. eliminate any pretexts for trouble in NI.
B. create dissent and anger in some parts of the UK, but I don't see that as resulting in bombs, multiple deaths and serious injury. So purely in terms of avoiding destructive violence, stopping it NOW wins out. The rest of the political debate pales into insignificance. THE TIMES - STORY

No-deal Brexit could be 'taken off the table', Chancellor Philip Hammond tells business leaders in leaked conference call (Independent)

Information on residence in Germany after the UK’s exit from the EU In all EU Exit scenarios, UK nationals living in Germany will need to apply for a residence permit from their local Foreigners Authority (Ausländerbehörde).

If you are getting lost in all the parliamentary procedures over the Brexit deal, look at this useful summary from the Institute for Government
Hamburg | The Einbürgerungstest is essential, for dual nationality. Dual nationality is only available, before Brexit. Go to VHS in Hamburg-Sternschanze in person, to get the date for your test, or Inlingua - the latter has a longer waiting list. It currently costs 25 Euros in VHS. Get a receipt for your payment and make an appointment for Einbürgerung in Wandsbek now, even if your test is after Brexit, or the results are due after Brexit. Confirm this, when you call to make your Einbürgerung appointment. No guarantees, that the information is correct
Hamburg | Information for those that are married: Reportedly, if you married a German in the Standesamt, you do not require your birth certificate, when you attend your official Einbürgerungs application appointment - the one that counts before Brexit happens. Don't assume this will be the case, but it has happened and has been confirmed. Ask first, if you have lost your birth certificate, or you only have a copy. Replacement birth certificates take just over two weeks, to be sent at the normal price. They will be sent out the next day, if you pay almost three times as much. Application online. Not like previously, where you had to turn up in person, in the town where you were born, in the UK! No guarantees, that the information is correct

24.01.2019. Please be aware that in all EU exit scenarios, UK Nationals will need to register with their local Foreigners Registration Office (Auslaenderbehoerde) even if they have previously registered with their local Town Hall (Einwohnermeldeamt/Buergeramt) and/or have been issued with an unbefristete Aufenthaltserlaubnis.

At this stage it is advisable for UK Nationals living in Germany to locate the Foreigners Registration Office responsible for their area to find out whether there are already procedures in place for registration of UK Nationals or at which point the registration process will begin. Find your local Foreigners Registration Office here: https://www.bamf.de

The German Ministry of the Interior has published information on this and many other residency related questions, including the status of dual nationals and UK Nationals married to German/EU citizens www.bmi.bund.de / English
