Labour is Britain’s democratic socialist party, ranging from the centre to the democratic left on the political spectrum.

Labour has only been in government for four short periods of the 20th century. However its achievements have revolutionised the lives of the British people. The values Labour stands for today are those which have guided it throughout its existence:

social justice
public services
strong community values
economic growth
reward for hard work
opposition to poverty and extreme inequality of power, wealth and opportunity
fairness for young and old
a healthy and sustainable environment
international development
human rights matched by community responsibilities
