Corbyn Backs High-Earnings Cap as Part of Labour Brexit Plan

  • Labour ‘not wedded’ to freedom of movement, party leader says
  • Says May has ‘recklessly’ exposed Britain without an exit plan

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the U.K.’s opposition Labour Party, said he backs introducing a cap on high earnings to prevent inequality increasing in Britain after Brexit.

“I would like there to be some kind of high-earnings cap,” Corbyn told BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday. “We cannot set ourselves up to be a grossly unequal bargain-basement economy on the shores of Europe.”
