CORBYN'S COMMENTS ARE NOT HELPFUL IN A CONTEXT OF GROWING HATE TOWARDS IMMIGRANTS


This is Corbyn from the second last PMQs:

"May I take him north-east of Shirebrook to the Lindsey oil refinery? In 2009, hundreds of oil workers there walked out on strike because agency workers from Italy and Portugal were brought in on lower wages to do the same job. Just down the road in Boston, low pay is endemic. The average hourly wage across the whole country is £13.33. In the east midlands, it is £12.26; in Boston, it is £9.13. Is it not time that the Government intervened to step up for those communities that feel they have been left behind in modern Britain?" (source)
