It was an­other busy day for Boris, Cameron and the Euro­pean lead­ers

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

rom a new leader of the Con­ser­va­tives to the Labour Party coup, it’s been a busy few days since Bri­tain voted to leave the Euro­pean Union. We round-up all the big­gest news to emerge from the UK Brexit fall­out.


An in­flu­en­tial Con­ser­va­tive Party com­mit­tee says a new leader should be in place by Septem­ber 2 at the lat­est - with nom­i­na­tions open­ing tomorrow and clos­ing on Thurs­day.

The 1922 com­mit­tee, which sets party pol­icy, ruled af­ter an emer­gency meet­ing the con­test should be run un­der the same rules as 2005. That means law­mak­ers will choose and then put two can­di­dates to the wider mem­ber­ship. Such a process favours es­tab­lished can­di­dates. For­mer London Mayor Boris Johnson, the pri­mary backer of the Leave cam­paign and Home Sec­re­tary Theresa May, who backed Re­main, are con­sid­ered the front-run­ners in the race to re­place David Cameron.

Mean­while, Cameron says the UK will not trigger for­mal EU exit talks at this stage.

He says the ref­er­en­dum re­sult is “not the out­come I think is best for Bri­tain” but says the re­sult must be re­spected and im­ple­mented in the “best pos­si­ble way”.


The num­ber of senior lead­ers re­sign­ing from Jeremy Cor­byn’s Labour shadow cabi­net grew even more.

Un­like Cameron, Cor­byn has re­fused to re­sign. But top Labour of­fi­cials are re­sign­ing in droves, fear­ful that the party could be se­ri­ously hurt if Cor­byn leads them into an early elec­tion that may be called.

An­gela Ea­gle, the party’s spokes­woman on Busi­ness In­no­va­tion and Skills, opted to re­sign from the senior party po­si­tion in light of Bri­tain’s vote to leave the EU. She is the most senior mem­ber of his team to re­sign. Ea­gle
