Jeremy Corbyn humiliated: Ex-Labour voters explain why they won’t be voting for the party | UK | News

Jeremy Corbyn has faced a “collapse” in the North of England as Boris Johnson is likely to pick up seats there. A focus group labelled Mr Corbyn as the reason they won’t vote for Labour and said they don’t know what the party stands for anymore. They were asked what exactly has broken the trust for the voters from the Labour heartlands.

Speaking to Channel 4 news, one said: “I think that they’re old hat so I feel like with my generation our parents voted Labour so we voted Labour.

“I think that we’ve started to rethink it now.

“I think that they’re kind of dying out.”

Another added: “I think in the Tony Blair days you had a great leader and you knew what he stood for, rightly or wrongly.

“You trusted him to a certain extent.

“Whereas with Corbyn nobody knows. He doesn’t give you confidence.

“I don’t know what the Labour Party stands for anymore.

“It used to be the working persons go to party but now I don’t know what they stand for.”

The polling data also indicates the Lib Dems only stand to win 13 seats, just one more than they did in 2017.

The SNP, however, have been predicted to win 43, an increase of eight, while the Brexit party will fail to send any representatives to Westminster.

Due to the blue wave sweeping across the country, the Labour party is predicted to lose high profile MPs such as Dennis Skinner in Bolsover and Caroline Flint in Don Valley, despite both being eurosceptics.

According to YouGov, the Tories are predicted to make 47 gains across the country with all but two (North Norfolk and Penistone and Stocksbridge) coming from the Opposition.
