Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg that he does not believe that immigration to the UK was too high. But he said that he wanted to end exploitation of workers under freedom of movement laws, a move which he believed would "probably" see a fall in the numbers moving to the UK.
In this full video of the interview, he also set out his thinking on the idea of a cap on maximum wages and his response to a suggestion by senior union leader Len McCluskey that he would be willing to consider his position if Labour's poll ratings remained low in 2019.

I am sick of hearing Corbyn and the rest of his Labour scumbags constantly crying about foreigners! Labour voters voted for Labour to represent them. I don't give a shiit about the rest of the world because while there is poverty, homelessness, food banks, zero hour contracts and ruthless employers the Labour party should shut the foook up about the rest of the world and focus upon UK people and the problems of the UK. Last time Labour were in power with a large majority they FAILED THE WORKING CLASS by not reversing the previous anti union legislation which now prevents workers from protecting their incomes.  It's having the wrong focus that is making them unelectable and why they are and have lost millions of working class vote all over our country! If this truth hurts then tough shiit cos Labour will never ever get in power ever again!

This "journalist" is constantly throwing up straw men. His argument is completely legitimate. He is simply saying, by not allowing companies to exploit foreign workers, the companies will be less likely to recruit them because he's eliminating the incentive. The exploitation of foreign workers leads to a decrease of the income of British workers (EDIT: by forcing them to compete for jobs with people who are paid less.) Why would a company hire a British citizen and pay them a higher wage when they can hire a foreign worker and pay them less and implore them to work more by nefarious means? (EDIT: If you increase the wages and end other forms of exploitation of foreign workers, you will eliminate a factor which depreciates incomes of Brits, with a likely result of having lower immigration levels. The aim is not to lower immigration levels, it is just one expected result of that particular policy.)

Corbyn just doesn't get it. He and most labourites want to be everything to everyone, championing the rights of minorities and immigrants etc. Change is happening. You can see it all over Europe and with Trump in the U.S. People have had a gut full of socialism and big spend thrift government. Look after the people who are on the cusp of genocide Corbyn. We are at present in the majority, and will use it to deny you power. Stop fawning over class and concentrate on the white majority who are being immigrated and bred out of existence in our own land. That's what UKIP and even Conservatives are doing now, and that's why they are gaining ground whilst your socialism fails. The people know this, you don't.

There is a minimum wage in the UK. If we pay Eastern Europeans minimum wage, it's still more than many of them could make at home. So they will come to the UK. And more UK jobs will pay minimum wage. That's how labour markets work. Fidel Corbstro can't say that because the middle-class lefties who are his only audience feel that supporting the best interests of the UK is insufficiently "Internationalist" in outlook and they're mostly in jobs where they aren't competing with immmigrants so aren't effected.

Utter BS and screw Corbyn! There's a huge factory near me in Somerset with 900 staff. I know the line manager and he says 90% are foreign. What they do is work here as temps, earn shed loads of money then waltz back to their country and live the life of riley only to pop back over to the UK and keep doing the same. Point is, they don't really contribute fully back into the system nor do most want to relocate fully.

Corbyn would make a great moderator of a student debating society of the "on the one hand and on the other" style. The trouble is that when you are the leader of a major political party whether in power or in opposition YOU HAVE TO BE CLEAR ON YOUR POLICY RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW ! You don't have the luxury of pretending you can leave all your options open. Of course it's a lot more dangerous as you could get it wrong but if you can't stand the heat I would stay out of the kitchen Mr Corbyn if I were you. On the other hand deciding that as a sovereign state you need default control of the movement of people across your borders is surely a no brainer ?

Well said Mr Corbyn. Sadly England and English people are so nauseatingly right wing, insular, xenophobic cretinous knuckle draggers so resort to blaming *everything* on immigration. They are obsessed and would rather blame ethnic minorities than corporations who ship their jobs overseas and dodge their tax via the Cayman Islands. "DUUUUH DEY TOOK MA JUUUUUUB!!!!"

John MacDonald wanted to reintroduce the 50p tax rate to those who have done well in creating wealth, and jobs he seems to stupid not to think they will go else where in the world. Regarding the NHS the party forced targets to be met, they even did this with the police. At least May is listening as she is on the side of us who voted to come out of the EU, this is going to be a big test for the Conservative party. We are all watching and listening.
