LABOUR?셎 Shadow Health Secretary branded the 17million voters who backed Brexit racist yesterday.
Diane Abbott declared that anyone who complains about the EU?셲 freedom of movement simply wants ?쐋ess foreign-looking people on their streets??
During a Brexit: Unite against Racism and Hatred event at Labour party conference she discussed immigration and freedom of movement insisting it makes ?쐏olitical and economic sense??
Moaning she could not understand why fellow Labour MPs were discussing proposals to restrict immigration, she declared: ?쏷he people that complain about the freedom of movement will not be satisfied because what they really want is to see less foreign looking people on their streets.??/p>
Last night Tory MP Andrew Bridgen slammed the comments describing them as ?쐎utrageous and an insult to many former Labour voters??
He said: ?쏻hat Diane Abbott and the Labour party need to appreciate is that those most vulnerable to the next wave of uncontrolled migration competing for the same scarce resources in over-crowded inner city areas is not me, not her and it?셲 not Jeremy Corbyn.??/p>

Fellow Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg said: ?쏣ssentially the Labour party does not like its own voters and sneers at their fair-minded concerns over mass migration.??/p>
And Brexit campaigner and Tory MP Steve Baker added: ?쏡iane Abbott seems determined to alienate her own supporters.??/p>
A clutch of moderate Labour MPs including Chuka Umunna, Stephen Kinnock, Jonathan Reynolds, Rachel Reeves and Emma Reynolds who all supported Remain have now called for an end to free movement in a post Brexit deal.
It came as Labour?셲 Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell made it clear he wants Britain to leave the single market pledging to fight for access to goods and services ??not full membership.
He said: ?쏻e will seek to preserve access to the single market for goods and services. But we will address the concerns that people have raised in the undercutting of wages and conditions and the pressure on local public services.??/p>
At a separate Labour fringe event yesterday, the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign chair, Hugh Lanning – speaking alongside Labour MPs Diane Abbott and Andy Slaughter – lamented the fact that there were so many events at the conference on anti-semitism.
He said: ?쏧 was commenting to someone that last year and the year before we had three or four Palestinian meetings. This year there are just one or two.
?쏝ut lots on anti-semitism – and for some people that is the intended consequence. But for us we need to focus on what is happening in Palestine.??/p>
