Discuss anything related to our new Labour government here.

So, on 4th July there was a seismic political shift when Labour got their landslide victory over the corrupt tories after 14 years in power. They foisted brexit on us and did the country so much harm in that time that I say good riddance to them. Now it's time for Labour to prove to us that they can fix this broken country, bring us closer to the EU (eventually reverse brexit? Here's hoping) and make all our lives better. I'm cautiously optimistic that this will happen.

This video explains the three appointments made at this point in time and they look decent, not the corrupt cronies that the tories used to pick.

David Lammy has already started the process to forge closer ties with the EU.

More on this, focusing on security:


If you want to talk specifically about the tories, then the tory downfall thread remains available, but you can also talk about them here, especially in comparison to Labour.

It was a shame to see Lib dem underperform, as though the country wants more Tory rule after 14 years of failing government. I'm hoping to see any improvement, for a start. Not concerned with the other parties.

Labour are failing in one of the key areas, sounding just like the tories, “we’ve got no money”, Starmer bleats. I call BS as there’s always money for the things they wanna do.

I remember Starmer saying this before the election, too. Let’s see how he responds to pressure from the unions given their continuing donations to the Labour party.

Keir Starmer is on a collision course with unions after playing down the chance of real-terms pay increases for public sector staff in negotiations, prompting widespread warnings of a crisis in recruitment and staffing.
