The Labour leader admits that Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were “wrong” in government to dismiss the concerns of the public over levels of migration that were “too high”.
It's not the first time Miliband has broached this subject and apparently Labour are to lay out their immigration policy in detail tomorrow. Yet going by the report in the Telegraph unsurprisingly it's clear that for all the rhetoric nothing will substantially change:While there is “nothing wrong” with employing foreign staff, some companies recruit from overseas to undercut the wages of British-born workers, Mr Miliband says.
This will mean “maximum controls” for eastern Europeans entering the European UnionSo we have dog whistle politics using words in the same sentence like; "controls", "Eastern Europeans" and the "EU" but in reality it's the same policy of restrictions on non-EU citizens while not being able to do much regarding the free movement of EU citizens. No change, no choice and complete contempt.
There has to be another way, and fortunately there now is.
