Britain is on course to leave the European Union at 2300 GMT on 29 March, 2019, severing ties that helped define its national identity, its laws, and its global stature over 46 years of integration with European neighbours.

Theresa May has insisted European Union withdrawal will mean more money for the NHS and schools, but avoided branding that a "Brexit dividend" on her whirlwind tour of the country.

Voters' disparate views on leaving are entrenched, and few have any certainty about Britain's long-term future.

Speaking to voters in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, Theresa May will say that, whether they voted Leave or Remain, what is important now is making Brexit "a success for everyone".

She added: I am determined that our future will be a bright one. I want to see us coming together, the four nations across the United Kingdom. And yes, I think Brexit is going to deliver a country that will be different, but I think there are real opportunities for us as an independent nation for the future'.

The European Union maintains that by leaving its single market and customs union, Britain will be making trade more hard. Down, as part of a tour of the British Isles exactly one year before the United Kingdom will spend its first day outside of the EU.

May has 12 months to plot a successful course through hard political and economic terrain; she is touring the country on Thursday and is expected to promise bright prospects outside the EU.

Brexiteers fret that the European Union divorce is taking too long and could be reversed.

According to a poll published on Wednesday, 44 percent of Britons think that "the government's handling of the Brexit negotiations so far has been "a total shambles", with 18 percent who it has been "satisfactory" and three percent "excellent".

Britain's economy has defied pre-referendum predictions of a swift plunge into recession, buoyed in part by stronger global growth.

May has agreed to Brussels' plan to keep Northern Ireland in the customs union if no better solution is found.

The future of London as Europe's financial centre is one of the biggest issues in Brexit talks because it is Britain's largest export sector and biggest source of tax.

With the Irish border remaining a sticking point, May said she will promise to ensure "no new barriers are created within our common domestic market".

Scotland and Wales last week backed bills to ensure that powers brought back from Brussels go to their capitals.

Theresa May has pledged the United Kingdom will control its waters after Brexit as Nicola Sturgeon's "contradictory" stance on the EU's hated Common Fisheries Policy came under attack from her independence allies.

Her tour includes trips to Newcastle, Belfast, Barry and finally London.

After starting her four-nation tour at a textile factory in Ayrshire, the PM said: "Let's be clear, there is no power-grab; we are not taking back any of the powers that are now devolved to the Scottish Government, indeed the Scottish Government will be receiving more powers as a result of us leaving the European Union".
