The race to choose a successor to Prime Minister David Cameron got under way Wednesday after last week's stunning Brexit vote, with former London mayor and top "Leave" campaigner Boris Johnson tipped as the narrow frontrunner.The party will official open nominations at 5 p.m. Johnson and May are expected to announce their bids Thursday, before nominations close at noon.The political chaos was not confined to the ruling party, with opposition Labour leader Corbyn arming himself for battle against a huge majority of his own MPs.Corbyn is due later Wednesday to rally trade unions and the Labour members who helped him win last year's leadership vote by a landslide margin, and a fierce battle is looming over who owns the soul of the party – parliamentarians or members.Former foreign minister Jack Straw said his party faced an "apocalypse" if an election was held with Corbyn still in office.
