Jeremy Corbyn Has Made A 'Serious Political Misjudgment' On Immigration, Says Peter Mandelson

Post by Guest on Fri Feb 19, 2016 1:56 pm

Jeremy Corbyn has made as "serious political misjudgment" by dismissing David Cameron's attempts to limit the benefits migrants can claim in Britain, Peter Mandelson has said. The former Labour cabinet minister and European commissioner said on Thursday evening voters did not like the idea of being taken "for a ride" by European immigrants. Yesterday, Corbyn said the prime minister's attempt to secure an "emergency brake" on immigration from the EU as part of his renegotiated membership was "largely irrelevant".

Speaking to BBC Newsnight, Mandelson said British voters backed the idea that people should not be able to claim welfare until they had contributed by paying taxes. "I think, frankly, Jeremy Corbyn doesn't understand that he's not really on the same wavelength as the British people," he said. "In the statement he made today, he was making quite a serious political misjudgment. He was basically saying Labour's absolutely for Britain staying in the EU. Then he had a lot of pot shots at the prime minister, fine that's partisan politics.

"But then he dismissed out of hand what the prime minister is doing in relation to migration. I happen to believe that people in this country don't want to pull the drawbridges up actually. But they do want a fair system. They don't want a free for all, they don't like this sense that people can come here and take us for a ride.

Cameron is doing nothing about immigration... the free movement of people and open door to 500 million people is not being changed at all!!!


And the 'emergency brake' is just meaningless waffle...



If you want our national parliament to be on control of our country and laws/rukes/regulations and you want to have control over our borders and end to open borders to 500 million people then you must vote to leave yhe eu!!!

A bit rich coming from the architect of a party that actively went out searching for immigrants as a social experiment and to thumb their noses as the right.

I doubt anyone seriously wants open door to 500 million people and for us to be dictated to by the EU...
