Britain's unprecedented vote to leave the EU has caused a furor across the world, with stocks plunging amid financial and political uncertainty. Thousands have vowed to protest the results of the British referendum.

There could be a real clash coming in Scotland. The devolved government there said it will seek the widest possible backing in the Scottish parliament to keep its ties with the European Union following last week's British vote to leave the EU.
Calls for a second Scottish independence referendum have grown since Britain as a whole voted to leave the EU last week, despite a large majority of Scots supporting staying in the EU.
SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon described that as "democratically unacceptable".

The SNP in Scotland has seen an opportunity in the aftermath of Brexit, and is already pushing for a second independence referendum north of the border. But it appears Downing Street is already looking to stamp on that idea.

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson has reportedly piled the pressure on Jeremy Corbyn. While BBC reports that he had told Corbyn to resign have been denied, he did reportedly tell Corbyn he has "no authority" and is facing a leadership challenge.
