    Britain Says 'Cheerio' to EU (463)

    The fact that the campaigns supporting the United Kingdom leaving the European Union won in a referendum on the issue shows people’s dissatisfaction with the establishment, the country’s Green Party said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum on its membership in the European Union. Earlier Friday, it was announced that most people voted to leave the bloc.

    "We cannot hide our disappointment at this result having campaigned strongly for a vote to Remain. But, we have to listen to the expressed view of the British people… The level of alienation against our mainstream politics is evident in this vote. The public have today rejected the views of the parties represented by 98% of our MPs [members of parliament] in Westminster," Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett said in a statement.
