JUST IN: After years of starts and fits, Brexit is official. ⁣ ⁣The United Kingdom and its people have returned to their independent roots. The move comes three and a half years after the country voted by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent to walk away from the club that it had joined in 1973. ⁣ ⁣"We now go into this next phase with a renewed confidence about who we are, our friends around the world - of course, the U.S.A.- and the globalists," "Leave Means Leave" Vice Chairman Nigel Farage told FOX Business' Stuart Varney. ⁣ ⁣Throughout the day, bands of ardent Brexit backers draped in Union Jack flags gathered outside Parliament in London to celebrate, their numbers growing and volume increasing as the time grew closer. Nearby, pro-Europeans waving the bloc’s blue and yellow flag came to commiserate. ⁣ ⁣Whether Brexit makes Britain a proud nation that has reclaimed its sovereignty or a diminished presence in Europe and the world will be debated for years to come. ⁣ ⁣(Re-gram: @FoxBusiness) ⁣ ⁣#Brexit
