Corbyn reshapes UK's Labour as Blair legacy 'buried'

Anti-austerity left-winger Jeremy Corbyn began eking out a shadow cabinet Sunday, striving to unify Britain’s Labour Party after a wave of grassroots support swept him from a fringe lawmaker to the party’s leader. The veteran socialist’s decisive victory marks a break with the legacy of former prime minister Tony Blair and his more centrist “New Labour” movement of the 1990s, and surprised many within the party. Labour announced that leadership runner-up Andy Burnham would remain in his shadow cabinet post along with Hilary Benn, while veteran left-wing MP and close Corbyn ally John McDonnell was named shadow finance minister.
