Press Release

We continue to fight for and promote a better, kinder politics: one where we can have respectful conversations with those we disagree with. We continue to fight for and promote a united Labour Party and we continue to fight for and promote a Labour Government that will invest rather than withdraw, ending austerity and working in the best interests of our entire nation.

Media Statement:

"Christians on the Left is saddened by the departure of seven MPs from the Labour Party today.

Our message has always been that Labour Party members should find ways of working well together. We will not always agree, but where we do disagree we should disagree well, respecting each other and not rushing to condemnation. We have found that this is a message that has resonated with Labour Party members up and down the country.

In this spirit, we should not rush to condemn those MPs who have left because that will increase the rancour in politics which is already at too high a level. Instead, those of us in the Labour Party must further our efforts to ensure our Party is open and welcoming, and united on our political values and ambition for a Labour government.

Christians on the Left’s membership includes people from all parts of the Labour Party. Together we are united in working for social justice, cooperation, unity, peace, and reconciliation. If we can work well together, we can achieve much together as we campaign for a better future for our country."
