    One of the most visible signs of Britain's membership of the EU in recent years has been the Polski Sklep. Polish grocery stores have popped up on the High Streets of most big towns, responding to the growing population of Eastern Europeans in the UK. "I feel really bitter and emotional about it," says Iwona Erikson, cradling her baby daughter in one arm. "I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought - 50% of the people here are racist. They have decided: 'We don't want foreigners here.' I had never felt discriminated against until now. Sylwia Sawska, serving customers behind a...
  • France wants quick British divorce from EU, Germany cautious

    France's foreign minister called on Saturday for the European Union to move ahead quickly to seal the terms of a British exit, arguing that the other 27 members needed to give the bloc new purpose or risk populism taking hold. "Negotiations have to go quickly in the common interest," Jean-Marc Ayrault said on his way to a meeting in Berlin of foreign ministers from the six founding members of the EU - Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Britain voted on Thursday to leave the EU, forcing the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron and dealing the biggest...

    At the heart of the common sense information surrounding the Brexit vote a few ordinary and uncomfortable points continue to be avoided by the echo-chambered media elite who have retreated to their safe spaces:♦ First Point – The U.K. was sending Brussels $500 million per week of their wealth to be redistributed to the lesser than affiliates.  In essence, Classic Fabian/Socialist Economics: From each according to their ability – to each according to their need.Simultaneously, to the parasitic withdrawal – inbound immigration was putting unsustainable financial strain on the social/societal welfare systems if the host.♦ Second Point – Inbound, seemingly...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday welcomed the vote by UK residents to leave the European Union, saying they "took back control of their country", according to Reuters. The presumptive Republican nominee, who is in Scotland, was asked about the British vote and replied, "They took back control of their country. It's a great thing." "People are angry, all over the world, they're angry," added Trump. "They're angry over borders, they're angry over people coming into the country and taking over. Nobody even knows who they are. They're angry about many, many things." Asked if he meant in the...

    It started with the best of intentions. In WWII, Western Europeans couldn't help but be impressed by the sheer numbers of American troops, equipment, and supplies moving through their countries, all under one flag and all speaking one language. After the war, various politicians in Western Europe noted how their continent and the United States - though both were roughly the same population, one had free travel for goods and people while the other didn't - and asked, why can't we do that here? And so the grand EU idea was slowly borne, and envious attempt to copy the US...

    President Barack Obama stands by his comment that Britain would move to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals with the United States if it left the European Union, the White House said on Friday. "Obviously, the president stands by what he said and I don't have an update of our position," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters at a briefing. Obama urged Britain to remain in the EU when he visited London in April and warned that a trade agreement between the two countries would not happen anytime soon if Britain left the bloc.

    President Barack Obama, who had warned against Britain quitting the European Union, said Friday that Washington would respect the British voters’ decision to do just that. The US leader said Britain and the European Union would both remain “indispensable partners” of the United States and that the “special relationship” with London would endure. “The people of the United Kingdom have spoken, and we respect their decision,” Obama said, in a statement from his White House office. But, in a nod to Washington’s frustration that its ally has been unwilling to back a European project seen as a cornerstone of Western...

    Germany’s top judges have warned in a landmark case that they will not tolerate any measure or legal finding from the European Union that clashes with the higher principles of the German Basic Law, but have retreated on a crucial point, implicitly bowing to EU primacy. The ruling by the German constitutional court in Karlsruhe reiterates a long-standing position that Germany does not accept claims of judicial supremacy by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). But the wording is weaker than its explosive ruling on Lisbon Treaty in 2009 and marks a climb-down. “The court has asserted its residual right...

    Jeremy Corbyn could be deposed as Labour leader within days after two MPs formally tabled a motion of no confidence in him. Margaret Hodge and Ann Coffey's demand will be discussed at the Parliamentary Labour Party's next meeting on Monday evening and a vote could be held as early as Tuesday. Sources close to the Labour rebels said the move would trigger a straight yes/no vote on whether MPs held confidence in Mr Corbyn, with a leadership content being launched if a majority said no. However Mr Corbyn's team are unsure about whether the no confidence motion is actually allowed...

"We now expect the United Kingdom government to give effect to this decision of the British people as soon as possible, however painful that process may be," said a joint statement after Britons voted for a Brexit .

Not that the Fed needed another reason. Weaker-than-expected growth in U.S. jobs in recent months had already forced U.S. central bankers to put off a rate hike at their meeting last week.But while data due early next month on June U.S. payrolls growth could help clear up doubts about the strength of the labor market, the political and economic consequences of Britain's exit from the EU will take months or years...

    A majority of British voters said Thursday that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, launching markets into turmoil as investors tried to digest what the referendum means for the U.K. and the European bloc as a whole. Although concern for the future of the EU may seem like hyperbole, nearly every member state has a political contingent in favor of leaving the union, and the successful Brexit vote may have just politically legitimized — and energized — those movements.

The UKIP leader said it had been an "extraordinary" campaign and it looked like turnout had been "exceptionally high". He also insisted UKIP were "going nowhere" and predicted the party would "continue to grow stronger in the future". Although a long time campaigner for the UK to split from Brussels, Mr Farage is not the official leader of the Leave camp.

I can think of no other country where the elite are so hostile to their own nation, and so contemptuous of it. I have spent many years trying to work out why this is. I think it is because Britain-the great, free, gentle country it once was and might be again-disproves all their theories....

If Britons do vote in a referendum on Thursday to leave the European Union, they can expect a tough and unforgiving response, with capitals across the Continent intent on deterring other countries from following the British example, European officials and analysts said. In other words, Britain will be made to suffer for its choice. With other issues pressing, including Greek debt, the migrant crisis and terrorism, the largest and...

Many EU governments such as France and Italy see a deposit guarantee across Europe as the next logical step to avoid the problems that brought on the euro debt crisis and the financial collapse of 2009. At talks in Luxembourg, the EU’s 28 finance ministers agreed for the first time to an EU roadmap towards a deposit guarantee scheme across Europe. …

Günther Oettinger, the European Commission's digital chief, said Britain's exit would allow the EU to 'develop a new perspective' and 'gather new dynamics'. Brussels would be able to speed up development of its common security policy, foreign policy and anti-terrorism powers because Britain is one of the main opponents to further European integration, he said.
