Abstract

Several Labour MPs – as well as LSE Brexit contributor Richard Johnson – have argued Labour needs to abandon its support for freedom of movement within the EU. But Alexander Gard-Murray says they are confusing immigration with freedom of movement. The polls show voters do not want a drop in immigration to come at the expense of single market membership. Instead, Labour needs to show that austerity policies and not migration are to blame for declining public services.
