Corbyn’s election DISASTER: Labour set to lose 125 seats in local elections, experts claim : EXPRESS

SUPPORT for Jeremy Corbyn’s party could hit an embarrassing low, as experts claim Labour is set to lose as many as 125 council seats next month’s local elections.

Corbyn's reign is at the brink

The hammer blow was delivered by elections expert Lord Hayward, who worked with pollsters ComRes to deliver the damning outcome.

Labour is predicted to perform poorly in Scotland, while losing control of councils in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

This would mean Jeremy Corbyn has led the party through the worst local election results for an opposition party for more than 30 years.

Lord Hayward’s method of analysis correctly predicted the outcome of the 2015 General Election and EU referendum last year.

The Tory peer’s forecasts also suggest the Tories and the Liberal Democrats could gain around 100 seats each, as people across England, Scotland and Wales head to the ballot box.

But the SNP is expected to retain around the same number of seats and Ukip is anticipated to lose between 80 and 90 seats during the contests on May 4.

Labour currently holds 563 of more than 2,300 seats to be contested across England next month. A further 2,500 seats will be up for grabs across Scotland and Wales.

  1. The media seem to think that if they discredit Corbyn often enough, his demise will become a self fulfilling prophesy. His supporters are not shy supporters, they are ignored supporters.

    I follow several pro-Corbyn support groups on Facebook and Twitter. People are waking up to the fact that we can’t go on under the jackboots of a Tory government for much longer.

    I never believe any of the polls, most are sponsered by Tories anyway.
