Jeremy Corbyn: I’ve not changed mind on immigration

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has told the BBC he stands by his view that immigration to the UK is not too high.

In a speech on Brexit later he is due to say that Labour is not “wedded” to the idea of freedom of movement.

But he told Laura Kuenssberg that he was not proposing new restrictions on the rights of people to move to the UK.

Instead he wanted an end to foreign workers being exploited in the UK under EU employment rules, which, he said, would “probably” cut numbers.

    Make up your mind J.Corbyn Esq.
    A very short time ago you said you supported ‘managed migration’ into Britain.
    Which statement do you believe and support?
    No restrictions on migration or managed migration?

    Is it any surprise the Labour party is lagging so far down in the polls when the leader contradicts himself?

    Who’s he kidding if that was done MORE would come we’re a soft touch NOW what would happen if we made it even more attractive ? come on Jeremy you’re a Remainer

    Almost half of the south of England is at a standstill, due to the union rail strike. Millions cannot get to work and its costing jobs and having a financial impact on those who cannot get into work. So what is Jezza`s biggest concern ?, EU migration numbers and making foolish impossible policy statements that he wants a cap on how much people can earn ( note the cap would of course be higher than the wage he gets).
    Just who does he think pays the tax in this country, and the pay gap he keeps saying is “wider than ever” is actually getting narrower.
    “I know lets make a policy based on lies and see if they swallow it”
    Thirty years ago an opposition leader putting a price cap on wages would be called a communist,

    Go back a bit further than 30 years and we had a Prices and Incomes Policy introduced by Harold Wilson. (He used to do Prime Minister impersonations).
    We all know how that ended.
