The Labour Party is one of the established UK mainstream political parties.
From 2015 to the General Election of 2019 the Party was the fastest growing political party in the United Kingdom with a membership exceeding 515,000 and a leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who appeared to be more or less independent of the UK deep state.

Leaked internal report on antisemitism
In early April 2020, an internal report on antisemitism by the Party's Governance and Legal Unit, covering the period between the election of Jeremy Corbyn to the leadership and the general election of 2019, was leaked. It confirms that throughout the period, the party was inundated with complaints of antisemitism. In the report conclusions on page 843, it also states: "in 2019, half of all complaints and one third of investigated cases came from just one individual". The individual is named on page 401 as "Euan Philipps" who is described as "...often rude and abusive".
2015 leadership election
Ed Miliband's resignation after the 2015 General Election defeat prompted Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper, Jeremy Corbyn and Liz Kendall to stand as candidates to succeed him as Labour party leader. Jeremy Corbyn was elected Leader of the Labour Party in September 2015 with 59.5% of the vote.
2016 leadership election
Jeremy Corbyn was subject to significant opposition from the Parliamentary Labour Party (for example, Hilary Benn, his Shadow Foreign Secretary expressed no confidence in him, and over 20 members of the shadow cabinet resigned) which prompted a leadership challenge from Owen Smith. However, Corbyn increased his margin of victory and was re-elected on 24 September 2016 with 61.8% of the vote.
2020 leadership election
The 2020 leadership election was triggered after Jeremy Corbyn said that he intended to resign following the party's poor results in the UK/2019 General Election. The contest was held alongside a deputy leadership election.
The results were announced on 4 April 2020. The Labour Party tweeted:
The future of the Labour Party is emulated by the Labour Party/Future Candidates Programme/2021 to 2022.
The Labour Party conference voted for candidate shortlists to be decided by three CLP representatives, one NEC rep and one REC rep. But the shortlist in October 2021 for the Future Old Bexley and Sidcup by-election was decided by three NEC reps, one CLP rep and one REC rep. This demonstrated the centralisation of the party under Keir Starmer.
- CLP - Constituency Labour Party
- NEC - National Executive Committee
- REC - Regional Executive Committee

|Marjorie Thompson||“Another Labour figure who has had an experience with the BAP is Emma Dent Coad who was the party’s first ever MP for Kensington, serving from 2017-19, and is now leader of the Labour Group on the borough’s council.
She told Declassified that a friend who was a senior official in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) tried to recruit her to the BAP in the 1980s. Coad later found out this person “worked with the CIA”. At the time, the US government had, according to an official memo leaked to the Washington Post, initiated a "propaganda exercise in Britain, aimed at neutralising the efforts of CND".
“In the late 80s, I was a journalist working in design and architecture and very busy at the time, travelling around a lot and writing for various magazines,” Coad told us. “At the time, a local friend who was senior in CND started talking to me about this project that she was involved in." "She basically said that if I was able to go to Washington and give a talk about the work I was doing, I’d have a lovely dinner, it would all be paid for, and then I’d be part of this international group who were just trying to improve life," Coad added. “Then I would be part of that group forever and I’d be invited to things periodically, and it would give me a really good profile."
Coad thought about it and discussed it with her then husband. "But I just felt there was something a bit smelly about it frankly,” she says. “It didn’t ring true, something so generous just for me being there, so I politely declined."
“Later I found out what the British-American Project was all about," she adds. “Then I found out a couple of years later that this friend – who had by then moved out of the area and I’d lost contact with her – worked with the CIA, and I was absolutely appalled."
Coad says she was good friends with the husband of the alleged CIA operative, and that he told her she was working for the agency as soon as he found out.
"There was something not quite right. I was just a jobbing journalist really, in a faintly glamorous environment, why would I be of interest to this international group?"
But Coad can understand why she was a target. "I’ve always been a socialist, I always had those values from school,” she says. “I was political at college, at university, I had roles in the unions, I’d always been political. So clearly she knew that."
After Coad was told about the CIA connection "it began to drop into place," she says. Coad then looked up the recruiter who had moved on from CND to PR firm Saatchi & Saatchi, which has funded the BAP.“I thought, ‘that’s interesting, a bit of a leap from what they were doing before’. I thought it was very strange that they would go from CND to working for a right-wing advertising agency, so it rang true, and I believed it.””
