Welcome to the website for the Hall Green Branch of Labour.
Following the election of 2015, a change was in the air for Labour. With a bold vision for change, renewal, and a robust anti-austerity agenda, outsider Jeremy Corbyn won the party’s leadership election by a landslide. Under Jeremy, the Party tripled in size with new members inspired to join a mass movement for change and the work began on a new transformative policy agenda that takes on the powerful few on behalf of the many.
In the snap election of 2017 the Conservatives expected to be returned with a landslide. But with Jeremy at the helm and our mass membership campaigning, Labour confounded expectations. The electorate gave Labour its biggest increase in the share of the vote since 1945, returning 262 MPs, 45 per cent of whom were women, meaning Labour’s 2017 Parliamentary intake had more female MPs than all the other parties combined.
Following Labour’s defeat in the 2019 General Election, Jeremy stood down as Leader and Keir Starmer took over in April 2020. We hope that the new leadership will build on Corbyn’s vision for a country that works for the many, not just the privileged few and work on a plan to make this vision a reality. We can all be part of this vision by helping to develop policy at a local, regional and national level.
