Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn leaves his home in LondonBy Estelle Shirbon and Ben Blanchard LONDON/BEIJING (Reuters) - Britain plunged deeper into political crisis on Sunday after its vote to leave the European Union, spreading further confusion and uncertainty to the continent, where officials were unable to agree about what to do next.
