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?

    • 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

        Get a life you boring individual.

    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

    @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 :-(

    Yvette Cooper says Labour’s defeat was a failure of political strategy

    Labour leadership candidate Yvette Cooper has written an article for the Huffington Post today, blaming Labour’s political strategy as the foremost reason for the defeat on May 7th. She identifies the inability the mistaken belief that former Lib Dems would automatically vote Labour, as well as failure to deal with the electoral threat of UKIP, as primary causes of the heavy defeat. “The political strategy of the Parliament failed. And we cannot repeat the same mistakes again. “We lost votes […]

    Labour and the new realities of UK politics

    Commentators and potential leadership contenders are, understandably, anxious to arrive at conclusions about why Labour did so badly in the general election. As is always the case at this stage, however, all such conclusions are predominantly intuitive, rather than based on meaningful evidence. But, come conclusions are inescapable. First, Scotland aside, the results were different according to regions and, in some cases within regions. Labour won 51 seats in the North West, up four from 2010. Our share of the […]
