Labour and the Unions join fight against low wage workers from Central. Europe. Corbyn talks to Andrew Marr.

A Labour government would leave the Single Market, Corbyn says and admitted that EU free movement rules have damaged workers’ condition.

He was interviewed by Andrew Marr.

Using words that were previously associated with the far right in the minds of socialists the first Socialist leader of labour in a long while, and one of the very few leading opposition leaders in Europe who is a real socialist faced up to the aims of big business in a way that the paycheck progressives never would...and he got the backing of the Unions to do it.

Asked about his party’s attitude to EU immigration after Brexit, Corbyn claimed Labour would put a stop to the “wholesale importation of low-paid workers from central Europe,[/B]” cause it “destroys conditions” for British workers in industries like construction.

:D Incredible, Blarism won't like this. To hell with them.


Corbyn said he'd stop agencies advertising jobs in central Europe, and force them to “advertise in the locality first” – an approach barred by Brussels rules which deem this a form of discrimination.

Locality first. Rings a bell :p

“What we wouldn’t allow is this practice by agencies, who are quite disgraceful they way they do it – recruit a workforce, low paid – and bring them here in order to dismiss an existing workforce in the construction industry, then pay them low wages.

“It’s appalling. And the only people who benefit are the companies,”
Note, that's what a socialist sounds like. Not someone telling you about intersectional pronouns and why society is a quilt.

The historically europhile GMB union conceded that mass migration results in the “pay, terms, conditions and job security of British workers” being “undercut” – noting that this is a “basic issue of supply and demand”.

Prior to this it was never about supply and demand. It was all about touchy feely concepts and shutting down the discussion.

“Time and again we hear from GMB members that they have been told by their bosses ‘if you don’t want to do this job exactly as I say, there are 20 EU workers who will’,” stated a report on Brexit, published by the union last month.

GMB called on the government to invest in education and training for British workers, and bring “an end to migrant workers being used as a direct replacement for UK workers, which is a commonly accepted principle with non-EU migration.”

The London Fire Brigades Union secretary Paul Embery, highlighted “the impact of mass and unrestricted immigration on working-class communities” before, during and after the EU referendum.

He criticised Free Movement for “[allowing] bosses to take advantage of highly-diverse economies by shunting workers across borders and playing them off against each other, thus driving down wages.”

Embery describes the process as “like outsourcing in reverse: no longer are firms forced to relocate abroad in an effort to save on labour costs; free movement laws allow them to do it while staying put.”


The worm has finally turned and people who believe in workers rights have finally got back in control of trade Unions and the party of the workers.

Despite all the money Capitalism spent they couldn't keep real socialism down. Despite all the attempts to paint socialism as not being about workers rights but about fighting cultural appropriation and defending made up pronouns the real guys staged a fight back.

Will Irish Labour follow? Unlikely, they went campaigning for the Blairites who preferred the pro cheap labour approach.

Will Corbyn's close allies in Sinn Fein follow? Depends if they can reign in the lunatic fringe which will try to paint Corbyn the man who stood with then though thick and thin and who has been the one true Socialist voice for decades as a racist or a stooge of racists.

With Corbyn or with the paycheck progressives! Which way to go?

Jasus, that Jermey Corbyn is some racist.
There will be a protest and 639000 members of GMB will be asked to cancel membership.

Tony Blair is fuming

That's torn it for me. If I were a British voter, Corbyn's Labour wouldn't get my X on the ballot paper after this piece of chauvinist crap.

He's every bit as hopeless a little Englander as the anti-EU Tories.

A fully paid-up member of the nostalgicist flatcap pseudo-left, quite clearly.

I don't understand, he does not want to let poor workers in Eastern Europe improve their life through work in Britain? I thought only the nasty Tories had policies that hurt people.

It's been going on here with the complicity of some in the unions who are supposedly paid to oppose it.......

This is a can of worms that many don't want the lid lifted on...fair play to Corbyn....

Forgive me for what I am about to do:

Genuine Lefties,
Are you on the same page as Corbyn or Toland on this one?

Firmly on the same page as Corbyn. I'm not shocked at all though at this stage by Toland's complete disregard for working class interests.

Damn right SF better, 100%. I have worked abroad myself in the Netherlands 20 or more years ago, travelling about, experiencing a different society etc and I have to say I loved - especially the hot chicks. But just because someone is critical of unrestricted immigration it doesn't make them a fascist. SF are not for open door immigration despite what the trolls and crackpots will claim. SF's position is to accept in per head of population the EU average (about 4,000 in Ireland's case). Well done JC, well done.

The Unions that were bought and sold like commodities?

Many pretend Trade Unionists don't want this looked at. They were silent - was it because they were bullied into keeping quiet or because they got the kudos and the checks from Capitalism to forget their jobs.

The left were silent until the singularly brave and relentlessly committed Corbyn spoke up. Why their silence? Because of the bullying, or because there were so many quangos and boards and kudos to be doled around.

But then came the man who never turned off page because of the baubles of the rich or because the newspapers and media told him what to think and how to be offended.

Fair play to Corbyn.

The courage to follow.
You don't realize how wrong that is. This is absolutely unheard of for a socialist to go back to basics and say that business is using imported labour to screw the local workers.

This is as far from following as you can get. He has basically thrown down the gauntlet to the paycheck progressives - the lawyers who campaign for pronouns and make money from bigots, the wealthy who'll call the unemployed racist but who still expect their cleaner to earn every cent and be thankful.

He has just called bullsh"t on the last 2 decades of the accommodation with the free market that some lefties took.

And completely out of step with his own supporters and party.

He's a lying arsehole and will ultimately split the Labour party.

He is a socialist, but one who puts the interests of his own nation first.

A national socialist.

There was a time when socialists were always rambling on about uniting the workers of "the world" but it seems that many of them have had a dose of reality, and realise that more workers in a particular place means more competition for jobs. And that means lower wages and poorer conditions.

So you disagree with him and then entirely agree with him?
