Corbyn opposition fails to halt British strike bill

Protestors hold placards during an anti-trade union bill demonstration outside the Houses of Parliament in central London on September 14, 2015A bid to curb strike action cleared its first hurdle in Britain’s parliament on Monday, despite fierce criticism from opposition Labour party and its new leader Jeremy Corbyn. The veteran leftist and one-time party outsider vowed to fight the bill after he swept to victory over the weekend, backed by a dramatic surge of grassroots support and endorsement from Labour’s traditional backbone, the trade unions. On its second reading in parliament lawmakers voted 317 in favour, 284 against the bill proposed by the Conservative government of Prime Minister David Cameron, meaning it will now advance to in-depth debate.
