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.
And while Prime Minister Theresa May failed to secure her much-needed majority, Mr Corbyn continues to insist his party is a “government in waiting”.
But a report has revealed that while Labour has abandoned many of its traditional working class voters, those are exactly who he needs to clinch power.
A report by Policy Network, whose president is former cabinet minister Lord Mandelson, claimed Labour’s support is strongest amongst the professional middle class “social liberals”, economically precarious young people and those on the very lowest incomes.

And to do so, the party needs to build support in other groups – particularly among C2 voters who struggle to “make ends meet”, described by Mrs May as the “just about managing”.
