Sebastian KoehlerDespite the UK’s referendum on 23 June, David Cameron has so far not decided to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which outlines how a country can voluntarily leave the EU. Sebastian Koehler argues that this process should not be delayed any further given the uncertainty which is damaging the UK economy. He writes that while Britain remains an EU member state, the country is now effectively marginalised from EU decision-making and has little to gain from taking longer than need be to negotiate its exit.
