    London Labour will gather for its conference this weekend to reflect on the past and plan for the future.  It is an oversimplification to say the capital is a Labour city but it certainly is a place where Labour is in power. Besides having a Labour mayor, almost two-thirds of London’s councils are Labour. And the party can be proud of its record in London.

    Major win for Labour left in final tally of nominations for party’s ruling body

    Candidates from the Corbynite wing of Labour, including Momentum chief Jon Lansman, have won the race for nominations for elections to Labour’s ruling body.
