Which Labour colour are you?

June 7, 2012 1:57 pm

A bit of afternoon light relief with this Labour colour chart courtesy of @stackee – some of the colours have been taken already. Which one are you?

Now updated with all of the colours that people have claimed…

    Surely Black Labour has been taken by Hopi Sen and Anthony Painter of ‘In the Black Labour’ fame?

    • treborc1

    I’ll take brick labour as red is taken 

  • treborc1

    I’ll take tomato it’s the only real red left

  • Brumanuensis

    ‘Sky Blue’ Labour would be nice, for this Sky Blue fan.

  • Charlie Mansell

    ‘ 4′33″ Labour!’ This rejects all attempts to define by colour and instead ‘reframes’ the debate in musical terms!:) 
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4%E2%80%B233%E2%80%B3 More seriously, I would agree that ‘In the Black Labour’ is taken already, however in colour terms will this evolve into ‘Blue Dog Labour’?

    I’d like silver please, as I’m a David Soul fan:   “Come on, Silver Labour, take my word, I won’t walk out on you again, believe me…”   (One for the oldies only, that)

    • The Lone Stranger

      Heigh-ho Silver, away!

  • ThePurpleBooker

    She forget Black Labour is taken @hopisen.

  • ThePurpleBooker

    I’m Blue/Black/Purple – in one colour.

    • Brumanuensis

      I believe that colour would be ‘Black’.

      • ThePurpleBooker

        Well, I believe that the big state is wrong but we need to change the role of the state, rather than roll back the state. I believe we need to also rediscover the centre ground as well as the traditions of Tawney, the Co-operative movement in order to continue of modernisation. However, I also believe that though dynamic markets are a good thing we need to have a challenge to the excesses of freedom and lack of responsibility that can exist in the boardroom and we need to have a ‘good society’, a reformed political economy – the moral economy and responsibility in every reach of society. I also believe not just in aspiration but devolution of power as well as wealth. But I would say I am a fiscally hawkish semi-Keynesian, and that we need to accept that there will be fiscal constraint and Labour needs to be clear about that, even though we need a more spacious deficit reduction strategy with a priority on growth. So, I”d say I’m the combination of those colours.

        • Brumanuensis

          PurpleBooker,

          It was a joke. But thanks for the explanation.

          • treborc1

             I thought it was serious

    • Emo

      Sounds as if somebody finally gave this opinionated little sh*t a good kicking.

      • John Dore

        Lol, coward hides behind made up name to have a rant.

        • treborc1

           What like yours.

  • PaulHalsall

    Red Labour!

    The worker’s flag is deepest red
    It shrouded oft our martyred dead;
    And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold
    Their life-blood dyed its every fold.

    Chorus:
    Then raise the scarlet standard high!
    Beneath its folds we’ll live and die.
    Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer
    We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

    2. Look ’round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
    The sturdy German chants its praise,
    In Moscow’s vaults its hymns are sung
    Chicago swells the surging throng.
    Chorus:

    3. It waved above our infant might
    When all ahead seemed dark as night.
    It witnessed many a deed and vow,
    We will not change its color now.
    Chorus:

    4. It suits today the meek and base,
    Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place,
    To cringe beneath the rich man’s frown,
    And haul that sacred emblem down.
    Chorus:

    5. With heads uncovered swear we all
    To bear it onward till we fall;
    Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
    This song shall be our parting hymn.
    Chorus:

    • treborc1

      banned from conference by that bloke Blair. more then likely he did not know the words

      • aracataca

        Not remotely true of course. It is still sung at Conference as you well know.

      • Bob

        Seriously treborc, do you just spend your life on this website moaning?

        Get a life you boring individual.

    Gold Labour

  • Marian Smith

    Soft pink – Labour the pink, the pink, the pink, the saviour of the human race.

    • Daniel Rhodes-Mumby

      Pretty sure we didn’t invent medicinal compound though.

  • La Pasionaria

    Think I might be brick Labour, if I can’t have that I’ll be fuchsia Labour as I’m outrageous but old-fashioned in some ways. I use semi-colons where needed, even on Twitter

  • http://twitter.com/paulwilkinson4 Paul Wilkinson

    Mint Labour innit?

  • http://twitter.com/Altany Altany

    Has to be Wine Labour. ‘hic

  • rednick

     :/ I needed Red Labour…
    I’ll take forest

  • James Asser

    LGBT Labour will claim Rainbow Labour please (although it’s not on the chart) and we’re already using the Fuschia Labour square for our Labour 4 Equal Marriage campaign http://labour4equalmarriage.tumblr.com/ – how’s that for ahead of the game?!

  • James

    You can’t be Magnolia Labour. It complements any kind of furniture.

  • John Dore

    I’ll have Cocoa labour, its nice before bedtime.

  • Dammit Shas

    Ken Livingstone is wine labour I believe

  • Arturobandini

    Leopard-Print Labour – because I’m still a socialist and the events of the last 15 years have confirmed that I’ll never change!

  • ThePurpleBooker

    I’d say Pink Labour is what the Left calls ‘New Labour’.

  • Alexwilliamz

    Turquoise Labour in solidarity with our leveller ancestors.

  • http://twitter.com/CJWallace91 Chris Wallace

    As a Blackpool fan, I’d like to claim ‘Tangerine Labour’. Our slogan will be ‘Making Labour work for the seaside folk.’

  • Shelagh

    Sunshire Labour – my glass is allways half full.

  • Jon Harvey

    May I be Graphite Labour.

    * Committed to being a listening Labour Party – making notes with my trusty pencil

    * Under extreme pressure, I would hope to become a diamond

    * I love Earl Grey tea

    @cllrjonsharvey

    • John Dore

      Like it, except Earl Grey, I’m a Tetley man.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZPXYLRVP4XOIGGDJWAL6HUO7U4 David

    An alternative classification might be using the Harvard spectral classification:

    I like the idea of a describing people as type O vs type M labour supporters…

  • Hollz39

    Army Labour, my friend died in Helmand Province this year. R.I.P Daniel Wilford. Through all my political efforts and rants… I’ll always remember him :-(

    McFadden’s appointment comes at a time of big opportunity for Labour on Europe

    Pat McFadden is taking over the Europe brief just at the time when the issue can work in Labour’s favour. Provided we hold to Ed Miliband’s decision not to cave in to the calls to offer an in-out referendum. Europe is again becoming toxic for the Tories. How Cameron must be looking back wistfully to that time when he told his party to stop banging on about Europe. That’s exactly what it is now doing. And it’s largely his own […]

    The Next Portillo Moment

    Undoubtedly the highlight of election night ‘97 was seeing Labour record the unlikeliest of victories where I live in Enfield Southgate. We did it through hard work, at the time all three Enfield seats were blue and though the Labour swing meant that Edmonton and Enfield North were going red regardless it took a special campaign lead by an extraordinarily good candidate in Stephen Twigg to record what was an iconic victory in the Party’s history. We held the seat […]

    The business backlash against Tory EU exit plans 

    It’s not just José Manuel Barroso who has warned David Cameron that his party is taking the wrong approach when it comes to talk of an EU exit. There is a clear sense of concern and anger from the UK and international business community in respect of the Tory plans for an in/out referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU in 2017. This has led to a serious business backlash against the Tories. Standard & Poor’s, the international rating […]

    Miliband sets out 5 point immigration reform plan (but won’t join “Operation Pander”)

    Ed Miliband is in Rochester today, where he’s campaigning for the party’s by-election candidate Naushabah Khan against what he called the “two Tory opponents” of UKIP and the Tories in the Rochester and Strood by-election. But the main purpose of Miliband’s speech was to set out what Labour’s approach to immigration will be – specifically an Immigration Reform Bill in the first Queen’s Speech of the new Parliament. Miliband announced it’d be based around five key principles (most of which […]

    Sadiq Khan asks Mansion Tax critics – how would you fund the NHS?

    Since Labour conference, the majority of Labour’s potential London mayoral candidates have been critical of the party’s Mansion Tax proposals. However one presumptive candidate has been consistently positive about the plans – Sadiq Khan. That’s understandable and expected, as he’s a Shadow Cabinet member and a Miliband loyalist. But Khan has now launched a public defence of the tax (calling it “absolutely fair”) and a broadside against critics, asking them “why they are opposed to hiring thousands more nurses and doctors […]
