The author writes that three contrasting Labour Party figures — Tom Watson, Ed Balls and Tristram Hunt — have, in mid June 2016, called for a revision to the EU free movement rules. He writes that needs to be translated into an immediate offer aimed at swinging the EU referendum on the 23 June 2016 for Remain. Labour has to explicitly embrace renegotiation of the EU Treaty.

The radical thing for Labour to do now is pledge to:

+ renegotiate the Lisbon Treaty
+ reform the labour market to reduce demand for low-wage migrant workers in the private sector
+ restore popular consent for migration and for honouring our duty to refugees by focusing massive extra spending on towns where public services are stretched.
