About Us

LabourList is the leading place for news, views and debate about the centre left. Its readers and contributors come from across the labour movement and range from MPs and peers to grassroots activists.

We are supportive of but independent of the Labour Party. There will always be a fierce debate within Labour and our purpose is to provide a forum for the full range of views rather than to take sides.

We believe the UK is best served by a Labour government because we believe only a democratic socialist party can deliver a strong welfare state, social and educational equality and an NHS, free at the point of use.

LabourList was launched in 2009 and now attracts 12 million page views each year.
