English Labour Network’s launch event speeches

“Labour must win England to form a government”. Watch MPs Shabana Mahmood MP and Justin Madders, Cllr Sam Tarry and our director John Denham speak to an audience of local leaders, councillors, former parliamentary candidates and campaigners at the English Labour Network’s launch event in Brighton in September 2017.



On the day of the launch, speakers Shabana Mahmood MP and English Labour Network director John Denham wrote in a LabourList article:

“England and its future are central to politics. It is England, and “English” voters in particular, that are taking the UK out of the EU. Labour lags behind in support from English identifying voters: indeed, Jeremy Corbyn would probably be prime minister now if he had as much support from those voters as from “British identifiers”.
