Boris Johnson has signed the Brexit withdrawal agreement, marking a historic moment in British history.
After three years of bitter dispute, the prime minister’s deal has officially become law after clearing all parliamentary hurdles and receiving royal assent yesterday.
Earlier on Friday, European leaders signed the document in Brussels before it was transported to London by train.
Writing on Twitter, Boris said his signature ‘heralded a new chapter in Britain’s history’.
He said: ‘Today I have signed the Withdrawal Agreement for the UK to leave the EU on January 31st, honouring the democratic mandate of the British people. ‘This signature heralds a new chapter in our nation’s history.’
Britain will now leave the European Union on January 31!
