Iain Duncan Smith attacks 'London-centric' Labour

Prominent EU leave campaigner Iain Duncan Smith has accused Labour of being a London-centric party that thinks people who talk about migration are xenophobes.

Lord Hain told BBC Wales on Friday that Labour voters are confused as to what the party's position is.

But Mr Duncan Smith, who spoke while on a visit to North Wales, said: "I think Labour never got in touch with the argument at all.

"They have a London-centric party that thinks that anybody who talks about migration is somehow a xenophobe."

He said Labour was "not listening" to people concerned about the impact of immigration.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the government's austerity policies and "unscrupulous employers" are the cause of problems in communities where there has been large scale immigration, rather than the migrants themselves.
