More than 2 million and rising sign UK petition for new EU referendum | Reuters

LONDON Just days after voting to leave the European Union, more than 2 million Britons and UK residents had signed a petition calling for a second vote, forcing lawmakers to at least consider a debate on the issue. Parliament has to consider a debate on any petition posted on its website that attracts more than 100,000 signatures. The proposal, posted before the June 23 referendum, said the government should hold another plebiscite on EU membership if the support for Leave or Remain in a referendum was less than 60 percent in a turnout of under 75 percent of eligible voters. #India #Middle East #science #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Foreign policy #european

Tomblin said the state would follow up with requests for other counties that also sustained significant damage #Business #Middle East #United Kingdom #Virginia #Entertainment

Irish unity vote for later, not now - foreign minister | Reuters

DUBLIN The future unification of Ireland would be in the best interests of its citizens, but holding a referendum while the British government is negotiating its exit from the EU would only cause division, Irish Foreign Minister Charlie Flanagan said on Saturday. Northern Ireland's deputy leader Martin McGuinness called on Friday for a vote to unite Ireland with the British-run province to the north #United States #Economy #science #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #article

Merkel sees no need to rush Britain into quick EU divorce | Reuters

LONDON/BERLIN German Chancellor Angela Merkel sought on Saturday to temper pressure from Paris, Brussels and her own government to force Britain into negotiating a quick divorce from the EU, despite warnings that hesitation will let populism take hold. Eurosceptics in other member states applauded Britons' decision to leave the European Union in a referendum that sent shockwaves around the world, with far-right demands for a similar vote in Slovakia underlining the risk of a domino effect. With the referendum decision finally made on Thursday and Prime Minister David Cameron having announced his resignation, European politicians and institutions felt free to shower demands on Britain over its future outside the world's largest trading bloc. #Business #Europe #markets #United Kingdom #Entertainment #article
