JEREMY Corbyn has been deserted in droves by young Labour fans bored of his radical beard thing.
The backbencher was the surprise package of the leadership election, energising vast swathes of disaffected young voters who flocked in droves to join the party, gripped by Jeremy fever.
Tom Booker, 17, who joined the party in early August said, “I joined the Labour party because I was bored, I wanted something new, I wanted change and I wanted it now.
“Jeremy Corbyn seemed to be the man. Rocking it with the whole beard look and the old man vibe and the rallies.
“But c’mon, it’s been weeks now and nothing’s happened. I mean, still with the beard? And the rallies? Come on, old man. I want something new, I want change and I want it now.”
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Young people feel let down by Jeremy Corbyn. He promised there’d be a leadership election, raising hopes of Davina McCall on TV saying “and the winner is”, and then pausing for like totally ages before saying “Jeremy!”
“But now they’re saying that’s not happening till September 12 which is like light years away. They should have had the election in August when kids were still interested.
“Now young people want someone different. Who’s that fat oaf who’s always hitting people and going on Twitter? John Prescott. Let’s vote for him.”
