Jeremy Corbyn has stated that he doesn’t feel the levels of immigration is to high and stated he hasn’t changed his mind on immigration policy.

While he claimed that Labour was not “wedded to the notion of freedom of movement, Corbyn also noted that he was not proposing new restrictions on the rights for EU members to move to the UK.

Instead, he want to focus on ending foreign workers being exploited under EU employment rules.

What do you make of this? Do you agree with him? Or do you think he is being too vague about Labour's stance?

He's stuck between a rock and a hard place. He's Eurosceptic, but plenty in momentum are vehemently europhilic.

It does sound like he's trying to placate the hardcore supporters who voted him in (twice) and then attempting not to piss off the general public.

But in doing that, he's sitting on the fence and pleasing nobody.

Great job.

The hysteria around immigration is just ridiculous. There are so many genuine problems facing society at the moment that actually need to be tackled but everything fades into insignificance the moment immigration gets mentioned. People have got to stop being so simple-minded, get over this ridiculous obsession with immigration, and start looking at the bigger picture.

A country is its people. Hospitals and schools can be fixed, but if a country is filled with crap people, it will go down the crapper.

I'm a labour party member, I even voted for Corbyn because of his anti-EU views.

Frankly, between him and people like be bradshaw (
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a7472706.html) labour have lost my vote. There MP's are currently just looking for a way to remain through the back-door.

Why don't you go canvassing for Labour in the north or midlands and shout this through thei voters letterboxes?

Labour is getting it's just deserts for its deliberate policy of opening the nation's borders under Tony Blair.

If you think the Party's core voters didn't notice, and don't still hold it responsible you are deluding yourself.

You reap what you sow.

I agree with this, but the rest of your post is frankly just patronising nonsense.
