Now the highest court in the United Kingdom says Parliament has to approve the process before it can begin. Stephen Castle is London correspondent for the New York Times.
Should Britain Stay or Should It Go? David Cameron today told skeptics in Parliament that Britain should stay in the European Union because, "we have the best of both worlds."

So do France and Germany. But the refugee crisis and terrorism on the mainland are reminders that political unity can be costly.

The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
