Which Labour colour are you?

7th June, 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?

    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


          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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    • 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

    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

    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


    • John Dore

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

    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 :-(

    Full text of Momentum’s draft letter to Labour MPs about airstrikes on Syria

    Momentum, the pressure group founded out of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership campaign, is urging its supporters to send this letter to Labour MPs. I am writing to you as a Labour voter to urge you to oppose Tory proposals for the UK to join military action in Syria against ISIL/Daesh. I am sure we would both like to see the defeat of both ISIL and the Assad regime – but it is not clear that this is an achievable aim. The military […]

    Full text of Jeremy Corbyn’s letter to Labour MPs about airstrikes on Syria

    Dear Colleague, The Prime Minister made a Statement to the House today making the case for a UK bombing campaign against ISIS in Syria. A copy of my response has already been circulated. We have all been horrified by the despicable attacks in Paris and are determined to see the defeat of ISIS. Our first priority must be the security of Britain and the safety of the British people. The issue now is whether what the Prime Minister is proposing […]

    Corbyn tells Labour MPs he cannot support airstrikes on Syria

    Jeremy Corbyn has written to Labour MPs today to say he cannot support airstrikes against Isis in Syria. The Labour Leader wrote that he remains unconvinced that they would make Britain safer or contribute toward a comprehensive negotiated political settlement in Syria. His letter comes after David Cameron tried to persuade MPs of the case for military action this morning. Corbyn’s stance puts him at odds with senior members of the Shadow Cabinet, which met to discussed the issue after […]

    Join the Labour team in marching for climate justice and jobs

    By Barry Gardiner MP and Clive Lewis MP On Sunday 29 November, on the eve of the international climate change talks in Paris, the Labour DECC team will be joining tens of thousands of people on the world’s biggest ever climate demonstration. It comes amidst a Conservative Government unleashing the biggest and most systematic assault on environment policy in decades. Whether slashing support for renewable energy and energy efficiency to boosting support and tax breaks for fossil fuels, it has […]

    Sleight of hand is no way to run an economy

    The Chancellor giveth, and the Chancellor taketh away. And taketh away, And taketh away. Don’t be fooled. While the abandonment of Tax Credits cuts is to be welcomed – and should be rightly lauded as a genuine victory for Labour’s leadership – it is not enough. And if the Godot-like Universal Credit is ever rolled out, proposed cuts to that mean this is a delaying of pain, not a end to the problem. Now it may be that the widely panned, […]
