    EU calls for UK to 'Brexit' quickly; Britain wants time to think over

    June 26, London: The European Union wants a quickie divorce, but Britain wants time to think things over.

    Senior EU politicians demanded Saturday that the U.K. quickly cut its ties with the 28-nation bloc, a process Britain says won't begin for several months, as the political and economic shockwaves from the U.K.'s vote to leave reverberated around the world, reports said.

    "There is a certain urgency ... so that we don't have a period of uncertainty, with financial consequences, political consequences," French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said at a meeting in Berlin of the EU's six founding nations.

    EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker warned that the split was "not an amicable divorce" but noted it was never "a tight love affair anyway."
