How much of the Brexit vote was based on insecurity of employment, and a sense that migrant workers from Europe reduce the bargaining position of workers against employers? And how much of it is based on a sense of resentment of London, as the rich and powerful centre that neglects the rest of the country, especially leaving people outside London with less satisfying, lower paid or even no jobs? I think that the left needs to develop and campaign for more specific demands and reforms aimed at enabling everyone to have meaningful work with decent conditions. Without that it will be difficult to persuade people that their anxiety about immigration is misplaced.
