I hope so, because it should not have to take 2 years in a fight to do what you are supposed "free" to do.

The UK could have immediately extricated itself from the EU at any point by revoking the law that took it into the old EEC. They chose the two year process because firstly they needed the time to prepare for it, and secondly because May would never have gotten a vote to revoke the law through parliament, even before she threw away her majority.
