Diane Abbott “very disappointed” in Labour MPs for immigration remarks

“… the shadow home secretary said she was “very disappointed” at a number of Labour MPs for claiming “immigrants are responsible for driving down wages and working conditions”.

The MP for Hackney Central said: “We are seeing the consequences of a rightward shift on migration and race everywhere we look.

“There is no question that much of the energy behind the Brexit vote was fuelled by anti-immigration rhetoric.

“There is no place for the Labour party having a narrative on immigration that is to the right of UKIP. You cannot out-UKIP UKIP and the Labour Party should not even be trying [to].” ”
