The next general election in the United Kingdom will take place in 2020. If the Article 50 notice is served in 2017, it is possible that the process of UK withdrawal from the European Union (EU) will not be concluded before the election.

UK withdrawal EU

But key analysts think his strategy could be risky and, in the end, go against him and jeopardise his political future.
