No turning back': PM May triggers 'historic' Brexit-[Reuters]-By Guy Faulconbridge and Elizabeth Piper-YAHOONEWS-March 29, 2017
LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May formally began Britain's divorce from the European Union on Wednesday, saying there was "no turning back" from a decision pitching her country into the unknown and triggering years of fraught negotiations.Nine months after Britons voted to leave, May notified EU Council President Donald Tusk in a letter that Britain was quitting the bloc it joined in 1973."The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union," May later told parliament in London. "This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back."The prime minister, an initial opponent of Brexit who won the top job in the political turmoil that followed the referendum vote, now has two years to settle the terms of the divorce before it comes into effect in late March 2019.May, 60, has one of the toughest jobs of any recent British prime minister: holding Britain together in the face of renewed Scottish independence demands, while conducting arduous talks with 27 other EU states on finance, trade, security and other complex issues.The outcome of the negotiations will shape the future of Britain's $2.6 trillion economy, the world's fifth biggest, and determine whether London can keep its place as one of the top two global financial centers.For the EU, already reeling from successive crises over debt and refugees, the loss of Britain is the biggest blow yet to 60 years of efforts to forge European unity in the wake of two world wars.Its leaders say they do not want to punish Britain. But with nationalist, anti-EU parties on the rise across Europe, they cannot afford to give London generous terms that might encourage other member states to break away.-BREXIT DIVORCE-May's notice of the UK's intention to leave the bloc under Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty was hand-delivered to Tusk in Brussels by Tim Barrow, Britain's permanent representative to the EU.Barrow gave the letter to Tusk, the EU summit chair and former Polish prime minister, in the Council President's offices on the top floor of the new Europa Building, according to a Reuters photographer in the room.That moment formally set the clock ticking on Britain's two-year exit process. Sterling, which has lost 25 cents against the dollar since the June 23 referendum, jumped to $1.25.May signed the Brexit letter on Tuesday, pictured alone at the cabinet table beneath a clock, a British flag and an oil-painting of Britain's first prime minister, Robert Walpole.-BREXIT DEAL?-The 6-page letter set a positive tone for the talks though it admitted that the task of extracting the UK from the EU was momentous and that reaching comprehensive agreements within two years would be a challenge.May wants to negotiate Britain's divorce and the future trading relationship with the EU within the two-year period, though EU officials say that will be hard given the depth of the relationship."We believe it is necessary to agree the terms of our future partnership alongside those of our withdrawal from the EU," May told Tusk in her letter, adding that London wanted an ambitious free trade agreement with the EU."If, however, we leave the European Union without an agreement the default position is that we would have to trade on World Trade Organization terms," she said.May has promised to seek the greatest possible access to European markets but said Britain was not seeking membership of the 'single market' of 500 million people as she understood there could be no "cherry picking" of a free trade area based on unfettered movement of goods, services, capital and people.Britain will aim to establish its own free trade deals with countries beyond Europe, and impose limits on immigration from the continent, May has said.In an attempt to start Brexit talks on a conciliatory note, May said she wanted a special partnership with the EU though she laced that ambition with an a clear linkage of the economic and security relationship.EU leaders will welcome assurances of a constructive approach and appreciate a commitment to remain a close partner for the EU and to encourage its development, as well as an explicit recognition that Britain cannot retain the best bits of membership after leaving.They may be less warm to an implication that Britain could live with a breakdown of talks on trade coupled with what might be seen as a threat to disrupt the security and counter-terrorism cooperation for which Britain, as a member of the U.S.-backed Anglophone Five Eyes system, is highly valued."We should work together to minimize disruption and give as much certainty as possible," May said. "Weakening our cooperation for the prosperity and protection of our citizens would be a costly mistake."Tusk said the EU would seek to minimize the cost of Brexit to EU citizens and businesses and that Brussels wanted an orderly withdrawal for Britain."We already miss you," Tusk said. "Thank you and goodbye."Within 48 hours, Tusk will send the 27 other states draft negotiating guidelines. He will outline his views in Malta, where he will be attending a congress of center-right leaders. Ambassadors of the 27 will then meet in Brussels to discuss Tusk's draft.-"DAMN NARROW TIME-FRAME"-But the course of the Brexit talks - and even their scope - is uncertain."The time-frame is damn narrow," said Martin Schaefer, a spokesman for the German Foreign Ministry.A huge number of questions remain, including whether exporters will keep tariff-free access to the single market and whether British-based banks will still be able to serve continental clients, not to mention immigration and the future rights of EU citizens in the UK and Britons living in Europe.One major uncertainty for May is who will be leading France and Germany, which both face elections this year."It’s bad news for everybody. It’s a wedge pushed into the European project," said French centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, who has made clear he would ensure Britain gains no undue advantages outside the Union.-UNITED KINGDOM?-At home, a divided Britain faces strains that could lead to its break-up. In the Brexit referendum, England and Wales voted to leave the EU but Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay.Scottish nationalists have demanded an independence referendum that May has refused. In Northern Ireland, rival parties are embroiled in a major political crisis and Sinn Fein nationalists are demanding a vote on leaving the UK and uniting with the Republic of Ireland.May said she knew that triggering Brexit would be a day of celebration for some and disappointment for others."Now that the decision to leave has been made and the process is under way, it is time to come together," she said.(Additional reporting by Alastair Macdonald, Jan Strupczewski and Yves Herman in Brussels, Michel Rose in Paris and Kylie MacLellan, William James, Estelle Shirbon, Kate Holton, Paul Sandle and Anjuli Davies in London; Writing by Guy Faulconbridge; Editing by Mark Trevelyan, Peter Millership and Giles Elgood)
How the EU works: leaving the EU
The government has accepted that it is under a “democratic duty to give effect to the electorate’s decision” in the EU referendum on 23 June.The prime minister told parliament in February that “if the British people vote to leave there is only one way to bring that about—namely to trigger Article 50 of the treaties and begin the process of exit—and the British people would rightly expect that to start straight away.”How exactly would that work? -Constitutional requirements-Article 50(1) of the Treaty on the European Union says that any member country may decide to withdraw from the EU “in accordance with its own constitutional requirements”.As a matter of law, the result of the referendum is not binding. As a matter of politics, though, it would be difficult to disregard the referendum result.David Cameron told parliament: “for a prime minister to ignore the express will of the British people to leave the EU would be not just wrong, but undemocratic”.Some lawyers argue that the prime minister doesn't have the power to make the official decision to leave the EU without parliament first approving it. The courts are going to decide this in late 2016.-A second referendum?-Some Leave campaigners have said a Leave vote might instead trigger a further renegotiation of the UK’s EU membership terms, followed by a second referendum on those terms. However, other EU countries would have to be willing to discuss this.Also, such a further renegotiation (to curtail the free movement of EU citizens to the UK, for instance) would likely need amendments to the EU treaties, which could prove difficult to negotiate and ratify.-Notification and negotiation-Article 50(2) says that a member state that decides to withdraw from the EU must “notify the European Council of its intention”. The European Council includes the 28 EU heads of state or government together with the European Council’s president (Donald Tusk) and the president of the European Commission (Jean-Claude Juncker).Article 50(2) continues: “in the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the [EU] shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that state, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the union.”The process has several stages.First, the European Council—without the UK—would agree guidelines for negotiations.Using those guidelines, the European Commission would negotiate an agreement on behalf of the EU.The agreement would need to be approved by the UK and 20 of the 27 remaining member states, representing 65% of those states’ population.The European Parliament would also need to approve the deal by a simple majority. British Members of the European Parliament could vote.-Timing-Article 50(3) says that the leaving state ceases to be an EU member two years after a notification unless an extension of negotiations has been agreed unanimously by the European Council and by the leaving state, or the withdrawal agreement sets an earlier or later date.Return-Article 50(5) says a state that has left the EU can ask to rejoin. This would be on the same basis as a country joining for the first time.-Is there any other way of leaving?-As a matter of national law, it would be possible for the UK to ignore the Article 50 process. Parliament could simply repeal the European Communities Act 1972.However, this would be a breach of the UK’s treaty obligations under international law. And it would presumably make it more difficult for the UK to strike a preferential trade agreement with the EU after withdrawal.How long would this take in practice? The clock would not begin to run until the UK had notified the European Council of its intention to withdraw from the EU. That could be at any time after a “leave” vote.The UK would then cease to be a member of the EU two years after that notification unless an earlier or later date was agreed.The government says it would probably take “up to a decade or more” to negotiate the UK’s exit from the EU, its future arrangements with the EU and its trade deals with countries outside the EU. However, those on the Leave side argue that this process could be quicker.It’s not clear whether a country could stop the process by withdrawing its notification. As the Treaty doesn’t discuss this, the point is arguable either way.What would the deal cover? Article 50 does not say that the withdrawal treaty will also regulate the UK’s future relationship with the EU. In fact, it seems to suggest that there would have to be separate treaties: one on the details of withdrawal, and one on the future relationship.The wording of Article 50(2) refers only to ‘taking account of’ that ‘future relationship’ in the withdrawal deal.In practice, the withdrawal deal and the treaty on that future relationship would be closely linked. Probably the withdrawal treaty would, among other things, aim to regulate a transition period before the treaty on the future relationship entered into force.Article 50 does not legally oblige the remaining EU to sign a free trade agreement with the UK. The words ‘future relationship’ assume that there would be some treaties between the UK and the EU post-Brexit, but do not specify what their content would be.Equally, while Article 8 of the same Treaty requires the EU to have good relations with neighbouring countries, it does not require it to sign a free trade deal with them, or go into other specific details on what the relationship should be.Most of the EU’s free trade agreements require a unanimous vote of all EU governments and ratification by all member countries. The practical implication of this is that if the UK’s future relationship with the EU takes the form of a free trade agreement, it may be harder to negotiate.
The UK's Sharia 'courts'-UK FULLFACT
Sharia, or Muslim religious law, has been highly controversial in the UK. Interpretations of Sharia are associated in other countries with harsh penalties unknown in the UK; campaigners and politicians worry that Muslim women are discriminated against when family disputes are resolved under Sharia.UKIP says that: "the law of the land must apply to us all. We oppose any other system of law". Its leader has referred to "80 practising Sharia courts around the United Kingdom".Are there 'Sharia courts' in Britain? While there are undoubtedly lots of different councils and tribunals dealing with Sharia principles, they aren't courts of law.Most are Sharia 'councils' set up to make decisions on purely religious matters, although there are some bodies that mix Sharia principles with legally binding arbitration. But none can overrule the regular courts.-Sharia councils-Getting married for the purposes of your religion doesn't necessarily mean you are married in the eyes of the state.Equally, the paperwork required for a civil divorce needn't be recognised by your religion.For this reason, many Sharia councils exist to issue Islamic divorce certificates, and give advice on other aspects of religious law. They're often attached to mosques.-Family law and Sharia-Other services related to family issues might be offered by a Sharia council. Family mediation is one example.Some campaigners worry about using mediation by religious bodies to work out agreements about children and finances after a marriage breaks down.In 2014 Baroness Cox, a member of the House of Lords, tried to introduce a law to ensure that women aren't disadvantaged in mediation by religious bodies, and make clear that they aren't a court.But, formally, this is already the case.While feuding couples have to at least consider mediation before going to court, it doesn't override family law. A court has to sign off on any agreement made after divorce for it to be legally binding, and won't do so if the judge thinks it's unfair.In 2013, the High Court was asked by an Orthodox Jewish couple to accept the ruling of a Jewish religious court on post-divorce family arrangements. The judge said that while the agreement would carry weight, it would be non-binding—neither party could get around English law by agreeing to abide by the decision of another tribunal.Rather than open the door to "Sharia divorces", as some newspapers reported, the judgment confirmed that agreements made in a religious form are ultimately subject to English law.-Sharia arbitration bodies-The way Sharia might become legally enforceable is where a Sharia organisation is used for arbitration. This means taking a commercial or personal dispute to a neutral forum and agreeing to be bound by what it decides.It's up to the people having the dispute who they agree to be the arbiter, and they can even choose to apply rules other than English law to the affair—so long as there is no conflict between the two.The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal is an example of this approach. It appoints one qualified lawyer and one expert in Islamic law to each case. In this way, it tries to ensure that the decision reached is in line with both secular and religious law.So if both parties agree, arbitral tribunals can decide certain issues by applying religious principles.This doesn't make them courts as such. Their legal authority comes from being voluntarily chosen as a decision-maker, and they can't make any decisions that are contrary to national law.How many of these Sharia organisations exist? From the research that's been done to date, it's not clear how many exist or how many different types there are.One piece of research from the University of Reading has identified 30 major councils, and some smaller ones, providing these services.An estimate of "85 at least" was given in a 2009 report by the think tank Civitas. It was repeated in an interview in the Telegraph with Baroness Cox in April 2014.The UKIP leader Nigel Farage mentioned a figure of 80 on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme in January 2015. UKIP told us that he got his number from the Telegraph article.But the Civitas estimate includes online forums and admits that the actual number is "indeterminate".So far as we are aware, there are no definitive studies.-Law versus reality-The coalition government had said that the courts have the powers they need to protect people from coercion and unequal treatment.But campaigners like Baroness Cox reply that whatever about the strict legal position, "the power of Sharia councils lies in how they are perceived by their communities".Academics tend to be more relaxed, saying that "fears that councils are forming a parallel legal system appear to be unfounded". A new book by a Dutch researcher is reportedly more critical about how women in particular are treated.Researchers also stress that we need more information to work out how important Sharia councils are on the ground, and the experiences of people using them.Similarly, the government now says that "there is evidence of a problem, but we have an inadequate understanding of all the issues involved". It has commissioned a review into whether Sharia is being "misused or applied in a way which is incompatible with the law", to report in 2017.
Sharia Law - List of Key Rules-BILLIONBIBLES.ORG
Sharia law is the law of Islam. The Sharia (also spelled Shariah or Shari'a) law is cast from the actions and words of Muhammad, which are called "Sunnah," and the Quran, which he dictated. Sharia law itself cannot be altered but the interpretation of Sharia law, called "figh," by imams is given some latitude.Shariah lawAs a legal system, Sharia law is exceptionally broad. While other legal codes regulate public behavior, Sharia law regulates public behavior, private behavior and even private beliefs. Of all legal systems in the world today, Sharia law is the most intrusive and restrictive, especially against women.According to Sharia law: - Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above). - Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death. - Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death. - Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death (see Allah moon god). - A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death (compulsion in religion). - A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death. - A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death. - A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old. - Girls' clitoris should be cut (Muhammad's words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251). - A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more. - A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Religion of Peace). - A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman needs her husband's consent to divorce. - A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it. - Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman. - A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s). - A woman's testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man's. - A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Errors in Quran). - A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval). - A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.- Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah - i.e., be "Halal". - Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam. - The list goes on. See Sharia law in America, UK, Europe and Saudi Arabia.Which countries use Sharia law? Muslims' aspired Sharia state is the birthplace of Muhammad that has no legal code other than the Sharia and enforces it without mercy: Saudi Arabia. But as detailed below, Sharia law is also used in full or in part, nationally or regionally in:-Afghanistan (89%)**-France*-Lebanon-Spain*-Algeria -Gambia-Malaysia (86%)**-Sudan-Austria*-Germany*-Maldives-Sri Lanka-Bahrain-Ghana-Mauritania-Syria-Bangladesh (82%)**-India-Morocco (83%)**- Tanzania-Brunei -Indonesia (72%)**-The Netherlands*-Thailand (77%)**-Canada*-Iran-Nigeria- Uganda-Comoros-Iraq (91%)**-Oman-United Arab Emirates-Djibouti (82%)**-Jordan (71%)**-Pakistan (84%)**-United States (USA)*-Egypt (74%)**-Kenya-Qatar-United Kingdom (UK)*-Eritrea-Kuwait -Saudi Arabia-W. Bank & Gaza (89%)**-Ethiopia-Libya-Somalia-Yemen-* In the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and other European countries that resist Sharia law, it has proven adept at infiltrating elements of the society that are left vulnerable (see Sharia law in America and Islamization of America).** Percent of Muslims who favor making Sharia the official law in their country (source: Pew Forum Research). In many countries where an official secular legal system exists alongside Sharia, majority of their Muslim citizens favor making Sharia the official law. For example, while Egypt's military blocked the Muslim Brotherhood's efforts in this direction in 2013, 74% of Egypt's Muslims still favor it. Even in Jordan, Indonesia and Malaysia - Muslim countries with progressive images - the relatively secular ruling elite sit atop Muslim masses, 71%, 72% and 86% respectively of whom want their countries to be ruled by Sharia. And in Iraq, where the United States has been propping up democracy since 2003, 91% of its Muslims want to live under Sharia.The number of countries penetrated by Sharia law continues to grow, as does the depth of its penetration in the countries already affected. This penetration is not by happenstance; it is managed to occur in five phases: see Spread of Islam and how to Stop Islam.
