Theresa May Signs Brexit Letter

British Prime Minister Theresa May has officially triggered the Brexit process by signing Article 50 on March 28, 2017 following a June 2016 referendum that voted to leave the European Union. 

The said letter was delivered by hand to European Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels, Belgium the day after by Tim Barrow, Britain's permanent representative to the EU. 

Addressing parliament on March 29, May acknowledged that the Brexit vote had been divisive, but expressed hope “that we are no longer defined by the vote we cast, but by our determination to make a success of the result”. 

And she added: “We are one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future. And, now that the decision has been made to leave the EU, it is time to come together”.

On Monday, March 27, 2017, I was at the UniRazak Toastmasters meeting in Jalan Tangsi, KL where I helped out this club to evaluate three of their speakers doing their CC manual projects. Two of them were CC#10 speeches and the third was a CC#8.

On Sunday, April 02, Celtic whipped Hearts 5-0 and in the process, earned the Scottish Premiership title for the sixth consecutive time (and their forty-eighth Scottish title) – with eight games to spare!

Scott Sinclair scored three (24, 27, 84 penalty) and the other two came from Stuart Armstrong (55) and Patrick Roberts (61).

In fact, the records keep tumbling for Celtic, who remain unbeaten in 37 domestic games this season and eclipsing a 100-year-old club record!
