Here is Kate hoey on immigration: From London Labour luvvies betray working class heartlands tackling mass immigration Its clear from this her views on immigration were no different from UKIP. That she saw this as major reason for voting leave. With same touch that she was just saying how it is. Unlike metropolitan middle classes ( aka the chattering classes ). With the added piece at end to deflect criticism by saying this is just common sense. So summary of her views is that she is speaking up for the common sense of working people outside London. This kind of thing was said about immigration in 50s and 60s postwar. Why in the end government brought in immigration controls on Commonwealth citizens. This rhetoric is as just as nasty imo now as it was when directed at other immigrant groups back.then. And of course it is only brave maverick like Hoey who will speak up. Like back then.
