Progress and Labour First are set to jointly launch a new umbrella organisation called ‘Labour to Win’ as a response to Keir Starmer’s call for party unity.
The two groups are separate and represent different traditions in the party, though they have both been home to Corbynsceptics over the last four-and-a-half years.
Their fresh collaborative project is being established to celebrate the election of new leader Starmer, who has their “100% support”, as a historic turning point for Labour.
Labour to Win will aim to bring together groups within Labour that agree the party must now “change radically if we are to regain our ability to win elections”.
It is intended to be a show of unity by the so-called ‘moderate’ wing of the party – and also to help highlight Starmer’s key messages of electability and competence.
