Your local Labour Party
In the 2017 General Election, Emily Thornberry was returned as our MP with an increased majority of 20,263.
In 2016, Labour recorded excellent results in the London Mayoral and Assembly elections.
In 2018, Labour retained 47 of the 48 seats on Islington council – we first won overall control of the council in 2010.
These successes, which were a result of our direct contact with voters, are enabling us to put our values into practice and to make tangible improvements in the lives of our communities.
Our policies are aimed at reducing inequality and eliminating poverty
- Living wage: Islington was the first council to introduce the living wage for all its
employees; we insist that suppliers do the same.
- New homes: we will build 3,500 new council homes by 2019.
- Social rents: we are opposing pressure from the Tory government to raise council rents to
80% of market rate.
- Education: we introduced a £300-a- year student bursary to help young people continue
to study beyond the age of 16.
- Environment: we set up a heat network in Bunhill ward
to provide cheaper and greener energy to more than 700 homes on local estates.
Labour makes a difference to the lives of people in our communities, but everything we achieve begins with local members devoting their time and energy to our campaigns.
