20 of Your Burning Brexit Questions Answered

Will anything change immediately?

No, nothing should change immediately. Any and all EU laws that were in place in the UK before the referendum are still in place, and will be until the Article 50 process is finished. The only small change will be Britain withdrawing from any decision-making in the EU Parliament while the Article 50 process is being negotiated.
