Ed Miliband: Leaders ignored effects of high levels of migration

When the Labour Party left office "too many of people of Britain didn't feel as if the Labour Party was open to their influence, or listening to them," Labour leader Ed Miliband has said.

In a video posted by itv.com, Mr. Miliband says: "For me, the most obvious example is immigration. I bow to nobody in my celebration of the multi-ethnic, diverse nature of Britain.

"But high levels of migration were having huge effects on the lives of people in Britain – and too often those in power seemed not to accept this.”

He goes on to say: "The fact that they didn't explains partly why people turned against us in the last general election. We have to move on from New Labour, as well as from this government."
