Article 50 will now be triggered: what happens next?

Theresa May has indicated that she intends to trigger Article 50 on 29 March. This will be the start of the two-year timeline set out in Article 50, in the eyes of many people a ridiculously short period of time within which to negotiate, finalise and ratify a deal with the EU before the relevant treaties cease to apply to the UK.

Can notification under Article 50 be conditional on a “good deal”?

As identified in the last blog, it is potentially harmful to the EU if a Member State were able to trigger Article 50 and then change its mind again and again until the negotiations result in a “good deal”. Adopting this as a starting point strongly suggests that notification under Article 50 cannot be made in such conditional terms.
