Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, this is going to be "interesting" (in the British sense): both May and Gove stated that article 50 may not be invoked before "the end of the year" or even next year.

Brexit cannot be cancelled or delayed, says Francois Hollande | UK Politics | News | The Independent

Michael Gove said that as Prime Minister he would only act after "extensive preliminary talks", and most probably not before the end of this year, while Theresa May said: "There should be no decision to invoke Article 50 before the British negotiating strategy is agreed and clear."

tbh May is being realistic. There is absolutely nothing the rest of the EU can do to enforce the issue, but I imagine they can make it increasingly uncomfortable with legislative and regulatory changes

It would be a wry twist of fate if the UK has stumbled into a sweet padded spot on the fence, finally!
Conversely equally twisted would be that the markets instability as the UK waffles and wavers wobbles the already fragile balance of EU finance off its Austerity Axis into the Keynesian (Keen for short) into the arms of Corbyn, Podemos, Syriza and MV5*...
Ben venga!
