Labour Party Conference Round-Up

At September's Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, Christians on the Left promoted our #patriotspaytax campaign.

A number of MPs endorsed the campaign, and both party leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell referred to it in their speeches. We also organised the annual Conference Service, and continued to use the Christians in Politics slogan #diagreewell. This led to various mentions in both the Christian and mainstream media.
