Hate crime reports surge in Britain after divisive EU referendum, police say
By William James LONDON (Reuters) - The number of hate crimes reported to British police online, including some assaults, has increased by more than 500 percent in the week after the country voted to leave the European Union, a senior police chief said on Thursday. The number of hate crimes reported to police through its online portal - one of several ways incidents can be reported - was 331 since the vote, compared with a weekly average of 63, said Sara Thornton, chair of the National Police Chiefs' Council. "Migrants are reporting verbal abuse, negative social media commentary including xenophobic language, anti-migrant leafleting and, in very limited numbers, physical assaults." Critics accuse some in the "Leave" campaign of stoking xenophobia and racism, as part of a message that leaving the EU would allow Britain to stop uncontrolled immigration, which many Britons blame for putting pressure on jobs and public services.

BoE's Carney says will not quit if critics come to power

Before Britain voted to leave the EU last week, Carney said this would bring short-term market turmoil and negative medium-term economic consequences, drawing criticism from the subsequently victorious Vote Leave campaign, which questioned his motivation. Three Conservative anti-EU campaigners - Michael Gove, Liam Fox and Andrea Leadsom - are among the five candidates vying to succeed Cameron in a race that will conclude in September.

UPS CEO: Prompt resolution of British EU exit in interest of trade
By Nick Carey ATLANTA (Reuters) - The United Kingdom's vote last week to exit the European Union should have little short-term impact on trade flows, as long as negotiations on the country's split with the trade bloc do not drag on too long, the top executive of UPS said on Thursday. "If the government sorts things out in a way that's considered reasonable in the minds of our shippers, then I believe it will have much less effect," United Parcel Service Inc Chief Executive David Abney told Reuters in an interview at the company's Atlanta headquarters. "But if this thing gets long drawn out and real complicated, that never helps anything." The CEO of the world's largest package delivery company said the referendum result will have no impact on UPS's five-year, $2 billion expansion in the EU, set to end in 2019, including investments in the UK.
