In the global maelstrom created by Britain's vote to leave the European Union, turbulence within the opposition Labour Party looks like a ripple.With Britain now poised to negotiate an exit far more painful than many voters anticipated, Corbyn's critics say Labour needs to present a strong, united alternative to the ruling Conservative party's ascendant Euroskeptic right wing. Without that, they argue, Britain could lose the protections for workers, consumers and the environment within a free market afforded by the EU in a rush toward untrammelled corporate power, a reduced social safety net and international isolationism.Labour parliamentarians say the Conservative right wing and the growing Euroskeptic UKIP party will take Britain in a direction most of its people do not want to go in unless their party plays a strong role in Brexit negotiations.Corbyn also has a trump card: the support of Labour activists outside the Parliament.If Corbyn hangs on, some expect Labour to divide in what could be part of a wider reshaping of the political landscape.
