Launched in 2009, LabourList is the leading place for news, views and debate about the Labour Party. Its readers and contributors come from across the labour movement and range from MPs and peers to grassroots activists.

We are supportive of the Labour Party, but independent of it. There will always be 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 only a democratic socialist party can deliver a strong welfare state, social and educational equality and an NHS free at the point of use.

We are funded by trade unions Unite and Unison, but also rely on individual donations from our readers.

If you have a question about any of our adverts or sponsored content, you can find more information here.
