Why Jeremy Corbyn’s new middle class luvvie fans mean he WON’T become PM : Express.

JEREMY Corbyn has abandoned traditional Labour voters in favour of middle class luvvies and professionals in a desperate bid for power – and that is exactly why he won’t become prime minister, a report claimed.

The Labour leader enjoyed a shocking surge of last minute votes at the June 8 election – buoyed by a “tsunami of support” from Britain’s young millenials and middle classes, according to polling expert John Curtice.
