United Kingdom accuses European Union of bad faith over Brexit transition plan

Prime Minister Theresa May's government will not hold a second referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union, her spokesman said on Thursday after the billionaire George Soros donated money to stop Brexit.

With over 1,000 Japanese businesses in the United Kingdom, the country is the UK's 11th largest trading partner, with investment into Britain reaching £46.5 billion in 2016.

Japan has issued a stark warning to the Government over the risks Brexit poses to the county's businesses operating in the UK. "This is all high stakes that all of us, I think, need to keep in mind".

May visited Japan in August previous year aiming to push forward with plans for a Britain-Japan free trade agreement.

Last year, Soros suggested the United Kingdom may never leave the European Union if the bloc reforms itself while Brexit negotiations are taking place.
