Migration boom DID drive down wages and living standards, admits Labour

Both Miliband and Cooper confess that Labour 'got it wrong'
Former government also hushed up potentially damaging reports

Labour’s open-door immigration policy drove down wages and living standards in Britain, party leader Ed Miliband has admitted.

He conceded that the last government ‘got it wrong’ on border controls and said that British workers had been ‘undercut’.

The bombshell confession came amid revelations that, when in power, Labour suppressed a string of damaging reports about the impact of mass immigration on the UK.

Mea culpa: Opposition leader Ed Miliband (left) and Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper both acknowledged that the last Labour government's immigration policy was damaging to Britain

At the time Labour denied claims that migration – in particular the large number of skilled Poles – was making life harder for some British workers.

Mr Miliband conceded: ‘We got it wrong in a number of respects including underestimating the level of immigration from Poland, which had a big effect on people in Britain.

‘What I think people were worried about, in relation to Polish immigration in particular, was that they were seeing their wages, their living standards driven down.

‘Part of the job of government is if you are going to have an open economy within Europe you have got to give that protection to employees so that they don’t see workers coming in and undercutting them.’

The damage has been done, labour stuffed this nation like no other before it, the only way now is to leave the EU and wipe off all the welfare dependants we don't need, this report is the tip of the iceberg for the list of welfare claimants from eastern Europe some more than others, word gets around very quickly that there is a money pot in the UK that gives you free money, all you have to do is go there for a short period register as many kids as you can whether you have them or not then you can go back home and live in comfort, there are nine countries doing it and getting away with it and our government is doing nothing to stop it, how many Poles have gone home and still claiming, believe me there are thousands at it costing our welfare system untold millions, we should pay no more than their own country pays until we can kick them all out along with the this stupid government who wants to stay in the EU.
