British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn tried to assert some authority over the Labor Party this week but his "revenge reshuffle" appeared only to worsen divisions between moderates and his leftist inner circle.Four months into the hard left veteran's tenure following his surprise leadership election win, Corbyn sacked two frontbench moderates for alleged disloyalty and demoted his defense spokeswoman with one commentator calling the situation inside the party "nuts". The drawn-out reshuffle was limited to sacking Europe spokesman Pat McFadden and culture spokesman Michael Dugher, for what a source in Corbyn's inner circle called "acts of disloyalty", and demoting defense spokeswoman Maria Eagle.Eagle, who favors retaining Britain's nuclear deterrent -- a common view with Labor MPs but not with the party members or Corbyn -- was shunted to Dugher's old culture brief, and replaced by Corbyn's fellow unilateral nuclear disarmament supporter Emily Thornberry.
