Red Len Spinner Demanding End to Free Movement Lives in Spain

Len McCluskey is launching his Unite re-election campaign this morning, making an end to free movement one of his main campaign pledges. This puts him noticeably at odds with the pro-open borders Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott. Labour are promising a “populist rebrand” in the new year – is Red Len backing immigration controls a sign of change to come?

Guido noticed that the Unite spinner who briefed out Len’s anti-free movement pledge is Jennie Walsh, who lives in Órgiva, Spain. Jennie writes a blog called “Left from Granada” where she shares her thoughts on “life and politics in las Alpujarras”. As she puts it:

“I moved… with my husband and daughter from leafy north London to Órgiva, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Some have asked why swap Hampstead Heath for Las Alpujarras. I have of course asked the same question. But as I write this blog and the stunning Sierra Lujar range feels close enough to touch, I have no doubt that the decision is the right one.”

Jennie is certainly one who has enjoyed the perks of free movement…
