On Monday 10 December  at 9am CET, the Court of Justice of the European Union provided the UK government with a clear exit from the madness that is Brexit. The ruling answered a simple question, but an incredibly significant one. Under the terms of the EU treaties, Mrs May, acting on behalf of the UK, triggered Article 50 unilaterally, by writing a letter. During the two year period from the trigger the parties have space to negotiate the terms of exit, but if no agreement is found at the end of the two years then EU law stops.
