About Labour Left
Labour Left formed in June 2011 as GEER, but changed its name in September to takeaccount of the rapidly expanding membership. It was originally intended as a thinktank to generate policy, but it was clear that the influx of new members wanted muchmore than that. They wanted a place within the Labour Party where they could share inpolitical debate and work together to ensure the re-election of a socialist government in2015. To an extent Labour had been lacking a coherent voice for those disillusionedwith deeply unethical aspects of New Labour.The ambition of Labour Left is to generate ethical socialist policies for inclusion in thenext Labour General Election manifesto. We aim to intellectually reclaim what it meansto be left and we wish to help Ed Miliband steer a course away from Neo-Liberalism. Itis clear from the surge in new members, especially younger ones since the GeneralElection in 2010, that there is an appetite for socialist policies that tame the excesses of capitalism and re-balance the UK economy in a way that is fairer to the have-nots.
The old battles of the 1980s are part of UK history, and the brand that was „NewLabour‟ is no longer new. Thus, Labour Left looks forward to a radical new age of 
communitarianism, solidarity and a new morality in politics. In Labour Left, we offeryou our view of ethical socialism.
