Labour Together was built by a group of MPs - Shabana Mahmood, Steve Reed, Bridget Phillipson, Wes Streeting, Lucy Powell, Rachel Reeves, Jim McMahon, Jon Cruddas and Lisa Nandy - who wanted to see Labour back in power.
In Labour’s wilderness years, Labour Together fought to make the party electable again. In 2020, with Morgan McSweeney as Director, it united the party behind Keir Starmer’s leadership campaign. In the years since, Keir Starmer has reformed the party, placed the country’s interests at its heart, and put Labour on the path to power.
Now, more than ever, Britain needs Labour in power. The world is in flux, with war on the continent for the first time in a generation and the global economy in turmoil. Britain, meanwhile, lags far behind its peers. The chaos of the long Conservative administration has seen our economy stalling, strikers take to the streets, and public services at breaking point.
While this is a time of challenge, it is also one of opportunity. Britain still has great strengths. We have a long and proud history. We are an industrious people. We have brilliant businesses and world-leading industries. Decline is not inevitable.
Committed to seeing Labour back in power, Labour Together is a think tank putting forward a new vision for Britain under a Keir Starmer administration. We are proposing policies that will equip a Labour government for power, and ideas that connect Labour to the people, living up to Keir’s promise to make the Labour Party the “political wing of the British people” again.
