A damning report into the Iraq war has bolstered embattled British opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn but an intense battle for the party's soul is still raging in the wake of the Brexit vote. Veteran socialist Corbyn has hung on in the face of overwhelming pressure, clinging on after a vote of no confidence last week in which 75 percent of the party's lawmakers voted against his leadership.The competing claims to ownership of the party by Corbyn – who claims authority through its members – and the MPs – who claim authority through its voters – are at the heart of Labour's impasse.There is little prospect of that after the vote in which 172 Labour MPs out of a total of 230 in parliament voted in a secret ballot against Corbyn and only 40 supported him.McTernan doubted that "95 percent of MPs" would leave and hand Corbyn the party's "name, history and heritage".
