After a three-day suspension out of respect for parliamentarian Jo Cox, who was killed on June 16, campaigning has resumed for Britain's divisive vote on its membership of the European Union.
In the wake of the 2016 Brexit referendum, Theresa May is seeking new deals for an unmoored Britain. Without the EU's backing, the UK prime minister's negotiating position is diminished, Frank Sieren writes.
UK Brexit Minister David Davis' speech in Vienna sought to reassure EU leaders. Brexit would not lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom and Britain would not be plunged into a Mad Max-style world, he said.
Brexit opponents have begun pushing for a new referendum in the hopes that British voters have had a change of heart about leaving the European Union. That may be the case, reports Samira Shackle from London.
The move is aimed at addressing what is considered a national health issue, and honoring slain Labour MP Jo Cox. Cox, who was murdered in the run-up to the Brexit referendum in 2016, advocated for help for the lonely.
