What to expect as May starts untangling the UK from the EU

He added that "things will become harder" for Switzerland once Britain and the European Union formally begin negotiations for a British exit.

He went on to "strongly advise" his successor that an "all-government effort" is required to tackle the UK's various challenges. Nurses are among the few who are exempt from the rule. The petition has more than 114,000 signatures. Like Cameron, she attended Oxford University but kept a low profile. May worked in finance, including at the Bank of England, before being elected as MP for the London commuter town of Maidenhead in 1997. "Brexit means Brexit", she said Monday, shortly before Leadsom folded her candidacy. But there are counterweights to them: the punitive, protectionist instincts of France, Luxembourg, Belgium, the German socialists and European Union institutions.

Brexit also upended Britain's political order.

"We need stability, we need calm", Hans Joerg Schelling said.

We already have three active examples of UCL principal investigators being asked to step aside from applications to the Horizon 2020 European research programme by their collaborating EU colleagues, on the basis it might reduce the chances of grant applications being successful.

May has said she plans to appoint a minister for Brexit and that a priority will be to win the right for British companies to trade with the EU's single market in goods and services after it leaves the bloc, though freedom of movement will have to be curbed.

The country's second female leader after fellow Conservative Margaret Thatcher, May was officially - but unenthusiastically - in favor of Britain staying in the European Union.

"The Prime Minister and Government have been clear that this was a once in a generation vote and, as the Prime Minister has said, the decision must be respected", it said.

The 59-year-old May became the heir apparent after Andrea Leadsom, the final of four opponents in the bid to lead the Conservative Party, dropped out following backlash to her remarks that she was more qualified than May to lead Britain because she is a mother.

"May was nearly entirely silent during the referendum" yet now she "seems convinced that Britain is headed for the exit", Lee said.

May has been more forthright recently on what should take place following the victory for the "Leave" side in the referendum.

In particular, the Remain camp has said that Leave voters have been promised 'big changes on the United Kingdom immigration front.' However, citing Daniel Hannan - a British politician, journalist, and author who is a Member of the European Parliament – the Remain contingent have said that 'those Leavers expecting big changes, will be left disappointed'.

Global markets are keeping a keen eye on London as one of the world's major financial centres, waiting to see if the shock of Brexit will spook investors and cause big players to move overseas where there is less economic uncertainty. "We have a job to do in making the best deal we can in coming out of the European Union and I am very clear that I will deliver Brexit".
