Diane Abbott calls on left to back free movement as workers' right
Free movement of people should be defended by the left as a workers’ right while the Conservatives adopt anti-foreigner policies that will harm employees, Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, has said.
By Rowena Mason

“The demagogic campaign against foreigners that was first championed by Ukip and is now mainstream Tory policy obscures a key point. It is important to remember that freedom of movement is a workers’ right,” she wrote.

“In all societies where there are significantly greater freedoms for business and for capital than for workers, then in practice workers’ rights are severely curtailed. Business is at a huge advantage. This reaches an extreme in the most authoritarian countries.”
