This question was phrased by the source as follows:
"The next election is due to happen in 2020. Theresa May has said she will invoke article 50 (the procedure that begins Britain's formal exit from the EU) by March 2017. There will then be a period of negotiations while the details of British exit are decided, before Britain leaves the EU by spring 2019.
