World - Union boost for leftwinger hoping to lead UK`s Labour party

Britain`s opposition Labour party looked closer than ever to surging to the left on Wednesday after the anti-austerity, pro-nationalisation leadership candidate won the backing of two major trade unions. Long-serving lawmaker Jeremy Corbyn had initially been dismissed as an outsider with no chance of replacing Ed Miliband, who quit as Labour leader following the party`s dismal showing in May`s general election.
