Good morning, Jenny here with your Wednesday Newsround.

0:00:100:00:12

This lunchtime, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, will answer questions

0:00:120:00:15

from Members of Parliament, after she made a really important

0:00:150:00:18

speech about the future of Britain.

0:00:180:00:21

Mrs May announced some big decisions about how Britain

0:00:210:00:23

will work in the future, now it's leaving the European Union.

0:00:230:00:27

She also said Britain would leave a group called the Single Market.

0:00:270:00:31

Some other politicians, like the Scottish First Minister,

0:00:310:00:34

Nicola Sturgeon, are unhappy about the decision,

0:00:340:00:36

which she says could be very bad for Scotland and for Britain.

0:00:360:00:42

So what do "Brexit", "Single Market",

0:00:420:00:43

and all the other words we've been hearing, actually mean?

0:00:430:00:46

Ricky's got this one.

0:00:460:00:50

If you've been watching the news lately,

0:00:510:00:53

you will have heard a lot of...

0:00:530:00:55

Brexit. Britain voted for Brexit.

0:00:550:00:56

Brexit. Brexit.

0:00:560:00:57

Brexit.

0:00:570:00:58

And probably a few...

0:00:580:01:00

The European Union. Control.

0:01:000:01:01

Immigration.

0:01:010:01:03

Oh, and don't forget...

0:01:030:01:04

The Single Market. Article 50.

0:01:040:01:05

Exiting the EU.

0:01:050:01:07

But what do they all mean?

0:01:070:01:09

Let's start with Brexit.

0:01:090:01:11

No, it's not the name of a new breakfast cereal.

0:01:110:01:13

It's simply two words put together, Britain and exit -

0:01:130:01:18

together that makes Brexit.

0:01:180:01:20

So, what exactly is Britain exiting?

0:01:200:01:24

Well, last year adults in the UK voted to leave the European Union,

0:01:240:01:28

which is a bit like a club, only this club is made up of

0:01:280:01:31

28 countries who work together.

0:01:310:01:34

The UK has been part of it for more than 40 years,

0:01:340:01:37

but most people who voted thought that it would be better

0:01:370:01:40

for decisions to be made in the UK rather than in the EU.

0:01:400:01:44

So, how do we leave?

0:01:440:01:46

By activating something called Article 50.

0:01:460:01:49

Think of it as a giant red button -

0:01:490:01:52

once it has been pressed, the process to leave

0:01:520:01:55

the European Union officially begins.

0:01:550:01:57

It's not really a red button, though, but it is very important.

0:01:570:02:01

Now, leaving the EU won't happen overnight.

0:02:010:02:05

Loads of things need to be discussed.

0:02:050:02:06

For example, how do we live and work with all the other countries

0:02:060:02:10

in Europe once we've waved goodbye?

0:02:100:02:12

Well, two of the biggest issues being talked

0:02:120:02:14

about are immigration control and the single market.

0:02:140:02:17

Let's start with the first one.

0:02:170:02:20

Immigration - that's when people move to a different country

0:02:200:02:22

to live and work.

0:02:220:02:25

At the moment, people who are from the EU have the right

0:02:250:02:28

to live and work here in the UK.

0:02:280:02:30

The Prime Minister says she wants more control over our borders

0:02:300:02:32

to limit the number of people coming to live here from overseas,

0:02:320:02:36

and that means she's made a big decision on Britain's place

0:02:360:02:38

in the Single Market.

0:02:380:02:41

So, what's that?

0:02:410:02:43

Well, at the moment, the UK is part of the Single Market,

0:02:430:02:45

which makes it easier for countries in the

0:02:450:02:47

European Union to do business.

0:02:470:02:50

There are rules that everyone in the Single Market

0:02:500:02:52

needs to sign up to, and one of those is that people

0:02:520:02:55

from the European Union have the right to come and live

0:02:550:02:59

and work here in the UK.

0:02:590:03:01

Theresa May says that the voters made it clear they didn't want

0:03:010:03:04

the EU making those rules, and so Britain will be

0:03:040:03:07

leaving the Single Market,

0:03:070:03:09

and that means the UK has got to make lots of decisions about how

0:03:090:03:13

we buy and sell things, not just with Europe,

0:03:130:03:15

but what the rest of the world too.

0:03:150:03:19

So, there you have it.

0:03:190:03:20

That's a lot of words.

0:03:200:03:23

Thanks, Ricky.

0:03:230:03:24

Now, there's loads more info about Brexit and what the

0:03:240:03:27

Prime Minister has announced over at Newsround online.

0:03:270:03:30

To footie, and it was a very exciting night for fans

0:03:300:03:32

of the FA Cup last night, as two non-league

0:03:320:03:35

teams created a shock.

0:03:350:03:36

Lincoln City beat Ipswich Town of the Championship 1-0 in their

0:03:360:03:39

FA Cup third round replay.

0:03:390:03:42

The drama was left until the 91st minute, when Nathan Arnold scored

0:03:420:03:45

a well-deserved winner for Lincoln, who'll play Brighton next.

0:03:450:03:51

And another non-league side, Sutton United, also made it through.

0:03:510:03:54

They beat League One's AFC Wimbledon 3-1 in their replay.

0:03:540:03:58

Tonight's matches include Liverpool's FA CUP replay

0:03:580:04:00

against Plymouth Argyle.

0:04:000:04:06

Where do you go after living in the White House?

0:04:060:04:08

The place where the President lives, in Washington, in the US.

0:04:080:04:11

President Obama and his family move out this week,

0:04:110:04:13

to make way for President Trump,

0:04:130:04:15

and this is the house they'll be moving to.

0:04:150:04:17

It's unusual for presidents to remain in the capital,

0:04:170:04:19

but they're staying so Mr Obama's daughter Sasha can finish high

0:04:190:04:23

school with her friends.

0:04:230:04:26

Next, to the American football game where puppies are the players.

0:04:260:04:29

More than 80 pups from animal shelters took

0:04:290:04:32

part in the Puppy Bowl, including three dogs

0:04:320:04:34

with special needs.

0:04:340:04:35

A referee keeps watch over the game, and fouls include things

0:04:350:04:39

like touching each other's tails.

0:04:390:04:40

The game was being filmed and will air on US TV

0:04:400:04:43

as an alternative to the real Super Bowl.

0:04:430:04:47

That's all from the team for now.

0:04:470:04:49

Newsround's back right here at 8.15.
