In response to the latest YouGov figures which show that 54% of Labour voters want to see immigration controls in the UK tightened while only 30% are happy with the status quo which Jeremy Corbyn supports - UKIP Immigration Spokesman John Bickley said, "70% of the country, including a majority of Labour voters, wants to see a serious immigration policy such as UKIP's Australian points based system.
"It is clear that the Labour Party no longer even pretends to represent the ordinary working man or woman in this country on things that really matter to them. "It is a simple truth that today what UKIP is the only authentic political voice for those that Labour's high command have left far behind.
"Voters across the UK already know this. In towns and cities across the country particularly in places such as Copeland and Stoke-on-Trent people will soon have an opportunity to make their views clear.
"Labour claim that their own voters are blaming foreigners for their problems. No Mr Corbyn, they are blaming the Labour Party's tried and failed immigration policies."
