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.

This is one of the liberal who needs to be removed from british leadership seat...he is of the mindset behind the refugees crisis. if there are shortages of skill workers why choose radical muslim countries, what about Australia, NZ, the south pacific countries, countries where they value their traditions and values... I'm pretty certain most of the skill worker meets your criteria.

So basically if you vote for him he wont end the freedom of movement which basically means he will still stay a member of the EU and pay lots to the EU and be govern by their courts, what a joker, even labours own people voted to leave the single market, just goes to show that he is not representing his own people.

So, Labour won't set arbitrary targets but will make policies that would reduce numbers. The Tories love arbitrary targets and do nothing to reduce numbers. Like promising a 10,000 limit and seeing an increase to 360,000. Nobody meets immigration targets. If you care about numbers why not vote for the party that would actually see a reduction? It's not about who can *sound* the most aggressive towards foreigners.

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.

Not Dave
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 ?
