About our Labour Party news

Latest news on Labour Party, UK's governing party after 2024 election victory, providing comprehensive coverage of policies, leadership, campaigns and latest developments under PM Keir Starmer.

The Labour Party, founded in 1900, is one of the UK's major political parties and currently forms the government after winning a landslide victory in the July 2024 general election. Led by Prime Minister Keir Starmer, Labour now holds 412 seats in the House of Commons, marking a dramatic turnaround from its 2019 defeat.

In the aftermath of their election win, Labour is facing the challenge of implementing its ambitious policy agenda, including plans for economic growth, NHS reform, and tackling the cost of living crisis. The party's shift towards the centre under Starmer's leadership has been credited with broadening its appeal, though some critics argue it has moved too far from its socialist roots.

Labour's victory has energized its supporters across the country, with membership numbers rising and local party activities increasing. The party is now focusing on delivering on its election promises, with particular emphasis on its 'Green Prosperity Plan' aimed at creating jobs and addressing climate change.

Historically, Labour has been associated with the trade union movement and working-class representation. Over the decades, it has evolved from a socialist party to one embracing social democracy and, more recently, a centrist approach under Starmer's leadership. This shift has been controversial within the party, with some members concerned about a departure from traditional Labour values.
