The Latest: PM Valls: No quick fix, Europe needs reinvention

Speaking to NPR, Obama also says there are more differences than similarities when it comes to Britain's election compared with the presidential election in the United States, where discontent has fueled Republican Donald Trump's rise. Obama says Europe hasn't fared as well as the United States since the financial crisis that struck in 2008, and some residents believed the EU was moving ahead without as much consensus as it should. Obama says one similarity he sees in the two elections is the ability some candidates have to tap into peoples' fears. The main opposition party's lawmakers earlier passed an overwhelming vote of no confidence and many called for him to step down as party leader. The prime ministers of four central European countries say the European Union needs to be reformed to renew the trust of citizens in its institutions. The prime ministers of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia also said the forthcoming exit negotiations between the EU and Britain must not leave EU members and their businesses in a worse position than Britain and its companies. Sturgeon says there can't be three months of drift until a new leader is chosen for Britain, and has indicated there might be a new referendum vote on Scottish independence. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says his country is committed to remain a member of the European Union despite Britain's departure but is warning that Europe must get migration under control. Denmark's Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen says he hopes his British counterpart "will be met with understanding" after the U.K. voted to leave the European Union. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says the crisis caused by the British decision to leave the European Union was predictable because the EU has disregarded core principles of democracy for too long. Tsipras said coming into the EU summit Tuesday that "Europe has reached a predictable crisis because of the democratic deficit, because of the absence of social cohesion and solidarity." In a direct attack on EU policies, he said there was a need "to replace austerity with growth, to replace division with convergence, to replace unemployment with decent jobs and endless negotiations behind closed doors with transparency and democracy." On Tuesday a group of white British men wearing shirts calling for the "repatriation" of immigrants started shouting at a Turkish family a few blocks away from Parliament and Big Ben. The 43-year-old leader of the Grand Duchy was looking for clarity following last week's British referendum to leave the bloc and wanted talks to be clear-cut and start as soon as possible. Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says there can't be three months of drift until a new leader is chosen for United Kingdom after the prime minister announced his resignation following the country's referendum vote to leave the European Union. British Prime Minister David Cameron says he hopes talks on Britain leaving the EU can be as constructive as possible and insists the British people "mustn't turn our backs on Europe." NATO's chief plans to attend a European Union summit to discuss the security implications of Britain's vote to leave the EU and how the two organizations should respond. British voters' decision last Thursday to quit the EU confronts the bloc with a major internal rift at the same time it faces numerous challenges from outside, including a migrant crisis, a resurgent Russia and violent extremist groups like Islamic State. The U.N. human rights chief is urging British authorities to stop "xenophobic attacks" that have surged in number following Britain's decision to leave the European Union. The rights chief urged British authorities to prosecute those behind the attacks, saying racism and xenophobia are "completely, totally and utterly unacceptable in any circumstances." Sweden's immigration agency says they have seen six times more British nationals applying for Sweden citizenship than normal, saying it is too early to say whether that is a trend. Annette Grafen Silander, a spokeswoman for Migrationsverket, says the government agency has seen "a record" 129 applications since Thursday's vote in Britain on leaving the 28-nation European Union. Silander didn't speculate as to what may have caused the increase, but Gavin Maycroft, a Briton who has lived in Sweden for nine years, told Swedish radio "the obvious reason is that I want to stay within the EU and I want to make sure that I securely keep myself within it." EU President Donald Tusk says holding off on a meeting of EU leaders on the bloc's future until September will avoid rushing into reform after the British decided to leave in a referendum vote. Nigel Farage, the leader of the anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party, says that the British now offer a beacon of hope to the rest of the European continent after they voted to leave the European Union last week. Diane Abbott, the party's spokeswoman on health issues, says a leadership contest is now inevitable to oust Corbyn, who offered lackluster support for Britain staying in the 28 nation bloc. Some 40 members of Corbyn's inner circle have resigned, accusing Corbyn of lacking the ability to lead the party. British treasury chief George Osborne says tax rises and spending cuts are inevitable now that the country has voted to leave the Europe Union. Osborne says his stark predictions about the impact on the public finances "have started to be borne out by events" such as a tumbling pound and spiraling markets. The Dutch presidency of the European Union is mounting pressure on Britain to make haste with its withdrawal from the bloc after last week's referendum. Khan wants the devolution of fiscal responsibility including tax-raising powers, as well as more control over business and skills, housing and planning, transport, health, policing and criminal justice. German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she will use "all her strength" to prevent the European Union from drifting apart in the wake of Britain's decision to leave the trade bloc. The EU Commission chief says he is banning any informal and secretive negotiations on a British exit until the nation formally notifies it wants to leave the European Union in the wake of last week's referendum vote. The Dutch presidency of the European Union is mounting pressure on Britain to make haste with its withdrawal from the bloc after last week's referendum. Calling the vote a "seminal event" that "will lead to a less predictable, stable and effective policy framework" Standard & Poor's knocked the U.K.'s sovereign rating by two notches on Monday, from AAA to AA.

What Germany wants – as diplomacy over Brexit begins

Greece, the refugee crisis, and now Brexit. The German Foreign Office’s first reaction the day after the UK’s vote to leave the EU in a referendum came in the form of a tweet: >  Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, went into crisis mode. This means: absolute calm. We are witnessing the collapse of the international order in Europe that began to take shape after World War II, was solidified during the Cold War and was kept in place after the Berlin Wall fell. It relied on a mixture of intergovernmental cooperation and supranational regulation through Brussels. Germany has profited massively from this status quo. Brexit threatens this and could cause irreparable damage to one the key pillars of its post-World War II foreign policy: the belief, forged first by necessity and then by choice, in “sovereignty through integration”. Now the questions for the German government are: how much of the status quo will it be able to preserve and how can it lead without being seen as an aggressive leader? SHIFTING ALLEGIANCES Brexit will remove Germany’s important ally, the UK, from the European Union – an ally that has enabled it to hone this model to perfection. Structurally, the presence of the UK has allowed Germany to wield power without appearing too powerful. A fundamental re-positioning of Germany’s foreign policy stance seems unlikely. It makes little sense to rearrange the deck chairs while the Titanic is sinking. Some German conservatives argue that Merkel’s calm is merely a form of self delusion. They want to see a more powerful repositioning towards the nation-state. They blame Brexit on her policy towards refugees and argue that the German government has simply ignored the lack of legitimacy for EU policy. Germany should become a bit more British, they say. German business and financiers would like to see a quick return to some form of stability. The UK is Germany’s second-largest export market in Europe. Not only Germany’s big corporations, but also many small and medium-sized German businesses have close economic and trade relationships with the UK. London is of significance for Germany’s banks, especially its flagship, albeit ailing, Deutsche Bank. The Frankfurt and London stock exchanges had been in merger talks. Merkel’s calm is first and foremost a negotiating strategy in times of uncertainty. Hence her insistence, at a press conference on June 27 and again in her speech in German parliament on June 28, on the need to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to leave the EU, before any informal negotiations can commence. But there was also a veiled threat about a creeping Brexit in her immediate reaction, the day after the referendum: until Article 50 is triggered, Britain will remain a full member of the European Union “with all benefits and obligations”. And crucially, Merkel interpreted the result of the referendum as meaning both: Britain leaving the EU and the common market. >  IN THE DRIVING SEAT Germany will want to keep maximum control of the European negotiations so as not to encourage further disintegration. Economic interests are going to be foremost in the government’s mind. Defence and security issues are likely to be handled with France in the lead. This is likely to entail limiting the role of the European Commission and of the European Parliament. But Merkel also knows that Germany’s key ally France is in crisis. French president, Fran├žois Hollande, is under immense pressure from Marine le Pen’s eurosceptic _Front National_ at home. Merkel has already experienced some of that pain herself: her popularity at home dropped massively in the wake of the refugee crisis. Her Bavarian coalition partner CSU has been highly critical of her policy, stopping just short of calling her policy an act of treason. With federal elections due next year, Merkel needs to avoid upsetting the boat further – and she also would not want to be seen to be endangering Germany’s economy. The German government also has a vital interest in preventing further disintegration of the EU and to avoid contagion. The kinds of reactions that followed Merkel’s signal to open the EU’s borders to refugees last summer will still be in her mind. Germany needs to take Europe with her and build up support. Calm is crucial: it allows everyone to formulate their interests and define their positions. Merkel is likely to be especially attuned to Eastern European concerns, not least in light of the strained relationship between Europe and Russia. She will be keen to make her office the key clearing house for all negotiations. But the role of the German Foreign Office is likely to rise again – if only for reasons of sheer workload. Expect to see more haggling between the Chancellery and Foreign Office – where foreign minister Franz-Walter Steinmeier is keen to position his Social Democratic Party for the elections next year. This is one of the reasons why Steinmeier’s office has worked with France’s foreign ministry, the Quai d’Orsay, led by the former German teacher Jean-Marc Ayrault, since February to plan ahead for Brexit. They issued a lengthy joint declaration after the vote, apparently without consultation with Merkel. The paper calls for a focus of integration in only those areas, such as security and migration control, where integration might add value. And it wants to “deliver better” on those issues. The paper’s length is in an inverse relationship to its usefulness as a starting point for negotiations. From a German standpoint, its main purpose seems to be its mere existence: it declares a strong Franco-German alliance – and so wants to prevent France ganging up with Italy and Spain against Germany. NOT OUT TO BE NASTY Merkel will be keen to move forward with inter-governmental negotiations across Europe, but around a Franco-German core. She will see this as a way to push back on attempts by the hyperactive Jean-Claude Juncker, head of the European Commission, to shape events. Her key ally in this is likely to be the Polish president of the European Council Donald Tusk. Germany’s position in the forthcoming negotiations is likely to be pragmatic. A key objective will be not to let negotiations about the modalities of Brexit spoil the subsequent negotiations about the specifics of the EU-UK relationship. Germany is not interested in a politics of revenge. But not being “nasty”, as Merkel put it, should not be taken to mean that British negotiators can expect to shoot the breeze. Her speech on June 28 made it clear that the UK cannot expect something for nothing. It is too early to tell whether Germany’s intergovernmental strategy will lead to substantial changes in its overall European policy. At the moment, the only certainty is that the German government is facing the most significant challenge to its foreign policy since 1989, if not 1949.

Here's a clear explanation of why political risks won't be leaving markets anytime soon

[Greece] The Brexit vote has brought politics to the top of the mind for many investors.  Ahead of the UK's stunning Brexit vote, analysts wrote that a vote to leave could open "Pandora's Box" in Europe, potentially prompting other countries to vote to leave the EU. And in a recent report, Goldman Sachs noted that satisfaction with the EU has been steadily declining in Europe as political instability has surged not only in countries like Greece and Italy, but also Germany.  In a note to clients published Monday, analysts at Morgan Stanley put in one clean paragraph why these political concerns are likely to linger around markets for some time.  The summary, while not exactly groundbreaking, I think captures the broad consensus on what is dragging down the political mood in many Western economies: wages are down, debt is up, and the merits of free trade are being questioned. Here's Morgan Stanley (emphasis mine): "To get some perspective, it is important to acknowledge that the political discontent runs deep at the moment. It is therefore unlikely to dissipate quickly, we think. THE FUNDAMENTAL DRIVERS BEHIND THE POLITICAL DISCONTENT — NOTABLY A RISE IN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION THROUGH GLOBALISATION,AN INCREASE IN INCOME AND WEALTH INEQUALITY FURTHER AIDED BY LABOUR-SAVING TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND A NEED TO REPAIR HOUSEHOLD BALANCE SHEETS IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE GREAT FINANCIAL CRISIS (GFC) — ARE UNLIKELY TO REVERSE ANY TIME SOON.  In fact, a renewed spurt in skills-based technological progress as part of the next industrial revolution — notably through automation and digitalisation — or the organisational changes in labour relations due to the rise of the sharing economy are likely to reinforce the frustration felt by the lower middle class in many DM countries. With the availability of cheap credit and the ability to leverage household balance sheets no longer glossing over the deterioration in real income dynamics, a backlash against the free trade of goods and services and the free movement of capital and labour could be inevitable. ALAS, FROM THIS VANTAGE POINT, THE BRITISH VOTE TO LEAVE THE EU MIGHT JUST BE THE BEGINNING." And while Morgan Stanley's commentary deals more closely with the EU, let's not forget that Donald Trump, who has never held elected office and has campaigned largely on curbing immigration and choking off trade, is now the presumptive Republican nominee for president in the US.  Unsettled politics are not just a European but broadly Western phenomenon now.  Last week, my colleague Elena Holodny highlighted a chart from Barclays that showed a majority of voters in both Italy and France want to hold a referendum on EU membership. Support for a similar referendum in Spain, Germany, Poland, Belgium, and Sweden is also north of 40%.  In its note Monday, Morgan Stanley includes a chart capturing a similarly discontented mood across Europe, highlighted the rise of both far-left and far-right parties in major economies across the continent, a trend that seems unlikely to go away anytime soon.  [Screen Shot 2016 06 28 at 10.27.55 AM] SEE ALSO: IAN BREMMER CALLS BREXIT THE WORLD'S BIGGEST POLITICAL RISK SINCE THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: An exercise scientist reveals exactly how long you need to work out to get in great shape

This chart shows which Europeans are the least likely to consider themselves European

The British are the least likely Europeans to consider themselves European. That's according to data from the Spring 2015 Eurobarometer report, which we spotted in a Morgan Stanley research note back in April. The Eurobaromater report, published by the European Commission, surveyed Europeans to see how they understood concepts of European citizenship and identity. One of the most interesting questions in the report focused on how European citizens viewed their relationships to their home nations and to Europe as a whole, asking whether they identified themselves only by their nationality, by nationality and then as European, as European and then by their nationality, or just as European. Overall, British respondents were the most likely to identify themselves only by nationality, at 64%. And so, although this data is from last year, it's quite interesting in light of the UK's recent vote to exit the EU. Citizens from Cyprus (57%), Greece (51%), and Latvia (48%) were also highly likely to identify themselves only by nationality. On the flip side, Luxembourgers were the least likely to identify themselves only by nationality (17%), followed closely by then Germans (25%). Residents of these countries were much more likely to at least partially embrace a European identity. Check out the Eurobarometer data below. It's pretty interesting.

Migrant Arrivals by Sea in Europe Top 222,000 in 2016

The estimated number of migrants and refugees who have entered Europe by sea in 2016 through 26 June has reached 222,291, according to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM). This compared with 146,083 arrivals in the first six months of last year, the IOM said on Tuesday. Out of the 2016 total, 158,159 migrants and refugees have arrived in Greece, while 62,752 have arrived in Italy. The remainder have reached Cyprus and Malta. Migrant fatalities in the Mediterranean so far this year have reached 2,888, compared with 1,838 through the first six months of 2015. The latest two incidents involving fatalities occurred on the Central Mediterranean route to Italy, which has become the most deadly route thus far in 2016 with more than 85% of all deaths involving migrants attempting to enter Europe by sea, the IOM said. Some 6,000 migrants were rescued in the Channel of Sicily on the 24, 25 and 26 of June. Many of them were still at sea on Monday, and so they were not included in IOM’s estimate of total arrivals in Italy through 2016.
