Nigel Farage looks really happy Great Britain is about to leave the European Union.

The former leader of the U.K. Independence Party tweeted a photo Wednesday of him smiling, beer in hand, while he reads the news that British Prime Minister Theresa May signed an the official notice to the EU that will formally start the Brexit process.

Farage was a prominent supporter of the successful campaign for a vote in favor of leaving the E.U.

Once Article 50 is triggered and the EU issues a formal response, an eight-week process to set guidelines will take place. Actual negotiations almost certainly won’t begin until June at the earliest. May hopes to negotiate a deal that both satisfies eurosceptics like Farage in the U.K. and keeps the country on good terms with the EU’s 27 countries.
