Leftist Jeremy Corbyn is set to be re-elected head of Britain's opposition Labour party Saturday, emerging victorious from a power struggle with his MPs that has threatened to tear the historic movement apart.Corbyn's victory will be a bitter pill to swallow for the majority of Labour MPs who rebelled against him after the referendum vote for Brexit in June, accusing him of failing to campaign hard enough to keep Britain in the EU.Many Labour MPs will likely now fall into line but Corbyn's leadership has exposed fundamental differences over the direction of the party.Former Labour foreign secretary David Miliband, who was narrowly beaten to the party leadership by his brother Ed in 2010, punctured any hopes for an amicable resolution with a blistering attack on Corbyn's leadership.Corbyn has been in parliament since 1983 and was a staunch opponent of the party's centrist "New Labour" prime minister Tony Blair, who won three elections.
