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

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

        Get a life you boring individual.

  • http://twitter.com/MichaelTWilson3 Michael T Wilson

    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…

  • 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 :-(

    What leadership and deputy leadership candidates think about the EU referendum

    The Labour Party is a pro-European party and should campaign for a Yes vote in the referendum: that’s the overwhelming view of the candidates for the leadership and deputy leadership who responded to a survey by the Labour Movement for Europe launched earlier this summer. We have had an excellent response from the candidates, with full and positive replies from eight of the nine contenders for the two posts. These responses are detailed, thoughtful and clearly heartfelt. Not only do […]

    The Blairites don’t know why they’ve lost control of the Labour party

    If there’s a lesson from the Labour leadership contest, it is that most of its MPs have lost control of the party. Daily pleas from senior MPs to members to choose someone “electable” i.e. not Jeremy Corbyn) seem to be falling on deaf ears. A full scale insurgency is in effect. Blairites sound even more disorientated. Last week the Independent’s John Rentoul blamed Ed Miliband for Corbyn’s rise, claiming that while he was leader, “the party chose as candidates a […]

    Forget vacuous ‘One Nation’ – Labour is missing a global vision

    Many things have been written so far about the Labour leadership debate, but one thing that most people agree on is that it has been far from visionary. At exactly the time when people in Labour need to lift our sights and look to the future we seem to be chained to the past, caught debating spending decisions in 2006 rather than mapping out a future for 2020 and beyond. George Osborne’s latest budget pushed the right buttons to ensure […]
