The future of the left since 1884

Hard Fought

Labour have won in a landslide. The task of changing Britain starts today, writes Andrew Harrop



Warmest congratulations to Keir Starmer and the whole Labour team. The party has achieved a huge and historic victory that seemed impossible to imagine a few short years ago. Labour’s triumph is partly down to the abject failure of the Conservatives in power. But it is also because of the tireless work of Labour candidates, employees and volunteers in every corner of the country, including thousands of Fabian Society members.

This is, of course, a moment to celebrate. But the task of changing Britain starts today. Labour’s manifesto was shaped by Fabian values and filled with Fabian ideas. We look forward to working closely with the new government to turn them into reality, alongside a Fabian prime minister and 141 Labour MPs who are Fabian members.

The Fabian Society is affiliated to the Labour Party, but we are also an independent voice on the centre left. With Labour in office, we will continue to publish new evidence and ideas to help the party do more, think bigger and transform the country in the decade ahead.
