Scotland's Sturgeon preparing for independence to keep post-Brexit options open | Reuters

LONDON Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon said on Monday she would start preparatory work on splitting Scotland from the rest of Britain in order to keep the option of independence available following the June 23 vote to leave the European Union. Although Britain voted to end its EU membership at the referendum, Scottish voters overwhelmingly backed remaining inside the bloc, reigniting the debate over Scotland's future as a constituent nation of the United Kingdom. Sturgeon renewed her position that a fresh independence bid, only two years after the country voted against it, should remain an option, depending on the shape of Britain's future ties with the bloc and how well they worked for Scotland #India #Business #Middle East #Europe #Argentina #United Kingdom #european

Turkey detains 42 journalists in crackdown as Europe sounds alarm | Reuters

ISTANBUL Turkey ordered the detention of 42 journalists on Monday, broadcaster NTV reported, under a crackdown following a failed coup that has targeted more than 60,000 people, drawing fire from the European Union. The arrests or suspensions of soldiers, police, judges and civil servants in response to the July 15-16 putsch have raised concerns among rights groups and Western countries, who fear President Tayyip Erdogan is capitalising on it to tighten his grip on power. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker questioned Ankara's long-standing aspiration to join the EU. #United States #Europe #Security #Entertainment #european

Theresa May wins battle to be British PM but faces tussle over Brexit | Reuters

LONDON Theresa May has won the battle to be Britain's prime minister but will face a much tougher struggle once in power -- overseeing her country's divorce from the European Union. May backed the "Remain" camp during the campaign for Britain's referendum on EU membership on June 23 but has made clear since then that it must now go ahead, saying: "Brexit means Brexit." But she has also said Britain should not trigger the exit proceedings until London is ready to start negotiations. Invoking Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty would begin those talks but lawyers and politicians differ over who has the authority to trigger the clause and whether it is irreversible. #United States #Middle East #Europe #markets #european #article

British government rejects petition calling for second EU referendum | Reuters

LONDON The British government has rejected an online petition signed by 4.1 million people calling for a new referendum on whether to leave the European Union. Britons voted by 52 to 48 percent, or 17.4 million votes to 16.1 million, to leave the EU in a June 23 referendum, a result which most politicians have said should be respected but which some who voted "remain" are struggling to accept. The petition called for the government to enact a rule that there should be another referendum if the vote for "remain" or "leave" was less than 60 percent based on a turnout of less than 75 percent #science #Europe #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #european
