After Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union, there is no indication that a so-called Brexit will happen soon. Prime Minister David Cameron, who is resigning, has said he will not take the formal step to an EU divorce on the grounds that his successor should. A petition on the UK government's website on holding a second referendum has gained more than 3 million signatories in just two days.

By Julien Toyer and Sonya Dowsett MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's two biggest left-wing parties, the Unidos Podemos alliance and the Socialist party, could come close to clinching an absolute majority together in a Sunday's parliamentary election, several exit polls showed. Unidos Podemos ("Together We Can"), a coalition of several leftist parties led by anti-austerity newcomer Podemos were seen winning 87 to 95 seats, and the Socialists 81 to 86 seats. Together they would have more than the 176 seats needed for an absolute majority, the exit polls from state broadcaster TVE and the ABC newspaper and Cope radio station showed.
