With fresh new faces arriving at the nucleus of British politics, a clearer picture has emerged of what the negotiations between the European Union and the U.K. could look like and what a so-called could Brexit mean for the country.
Staunch "Brexiteer" David Davis will now head up a new department as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. The veteran Conservative politician was foreign office minister in 1994, where he was responsible for government negotiations on Europe and NATO enlargement.
New Prime Minister Theresa May has so far played her cards very close to her chest. She has loosely iterated that a "Brexit means Brexit" but has refrained from even guaranteeing the future of non-EU citizens that are currently residing in the U.K. Instead, she has hinted that she will wait until the end of the year to trigger Article 50 - which begins the two-year process of exit negotiations - and has concentrated on major social reforms that have become a by-product of the referendum.
