he two chambers of the British Parliament agreed during the night on a common wording of the Brexit bill which means that the final hurdle is passed and once the formal Royal Assent is granted, the Prime Minister can call Brexit whenever she wants. House of Commons overturned some ammendments by the House of Lords which would restrict the cabinet’s maneuverability to some extent (like putting inside the bill the right for the Parliament to vote on the final outcome of the negotiations).

There was some chatter in the yesterday British press that Art.50 will be triggered already today, as there is a scheduled event with PM Theresa May, but there are good reasons for her to wait around two weeks with this decision not to sour the climate of the upcoming negotiations.
