New UK Newspaper Aims |at ‘Remain’ Readers

     (AP) – A new newspaper in Britain is aimed at the 48 percent of the population who voted to remain in the European Union in last month’s referendum.
     The first edition of The New European went on sale Friday in London and several other cities.
     Editor Matt Kelly says he hopes people will carry the paper as “a badge of honor.” He says “we are trying in many ways to rather belatedly level the playing field in what is clearly an anti-EU mainstream press.”
     Several big British newspapers backed a “leave” vote in the referendum.
     The referendum divided Britain, with London and major cities like Manchester — as well as Scotland — voting to remain, but a majority in England and Wales backing a British exit.
     The weekly publication will initially be published for the next four Fridays. It will continue if there is enough support.
