Pat McFadden, who was sacked as Labor's Europe spokesman in the reshuffle, urged Labor members not to focus on his dismissal, which was condemned by several lawmakers, in both Labor and the ruling Conservative Party.Corbyn believes the cost of renewing and maintaining Trident, which Reuters puts at more than 167 billion pounds ($234 billion) over 32 years, is too much and the money could be better spent.Corbyn's election as leader represented a sharp break from the legacy of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who shifted Labor from its left-wing roots to the political center. He took a party that had been out of office for almost two decades to three straight election victories after becoming leader in 1994 .Now Corbyn's push to turn Labor more to the left is exposing its fault-lines.Labor launched its Defense Policy Review Friday, calling on party members and the public to get involved.Some Labor lawmakers suggest they might resign if the party decides to scrap Trident -- a policy that Labor in Scotland adopted late last year.
