Another point is that you can listen to people until you are blue in the face, but when their message is inarticulate, incoherent and ignorant, how do you act on it?
For those in semi skilled jobs in deregulated sectors like construction that have seen wages plummet their gripes are neither the result of low educational attainment, far right beliefs or ignorance.
Immigrants of course don't pay low wages or cause labour market deregulation but Labour doesn't seem to have any policies to make collective bargaining easier or introduce industry wage councils that help sustain common wage rates throughout sectors. And that's the main problem labour activists have on the doorsteps.
