A look back at political quotes since Britain voted to leave the EU

The Brexit process started out triumphantly, with lawkmakers convinced Britain could deliver a successful exit from the bloc.

But since its postponement, it is still uncertain how, when or if Brexit will happen.

A look back at political quotes since Britain voted to leave the EU

'Brexit means Brexit', 'we will be leaving the EU on March 29th', 'no deal is better than a bad deal', 'stability': all quotes that have been said repeatedly by British politicians since the EU referendum was held in 2016.

Just days before the United Kingdom was due to leave the European Union, the March 29 cliff edge was moved by two weeks to April 12 but it is still uncertain how, when or if Brexit will happen.

Nearly three years since the 2016 Brexit vote, the deepest political crisis in recent British history has left three main options: leaving without a deal; leaving with a deal; or stopping the entire divorce.

Even the details of exactly when Brexit might happen are vague: It might leave abruptly at 2200 GMT on April 12 but EU officials said it could also be later, deal or no deal.
