UK's Corbyn: We are not fighting election to go into coalition

BIRMINGHAM, England, Nov 21 (Reuters) - The leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said on Thursday he was aiming to triumph in the Dec. 12 election, not just to win enough seats to form a coalition government.

"We're fighting this election to win as a Labour Party, we are not fighting the election to go into coalition with anybody," Corbyn added at his party's manifesto launch. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper and Kylie MacLellan, writing by William James; editing by Stephen Addison)
