The Socialist Labour Party - An Introduction
The Socialist Labour Party was launched at its first congress on 1 May 1996. It was initiated by leading trade unionists and campaign activists following the final abandonment by Tony Blair's New Labour of any commitment to progressive change for socialism in Britain. However, the Party represents far more than just a reaction to developments in the Labour Party. The SLP aims to build on the heritage of all the movements of resistance to the free-market offensive in Britain over the past two decades. In particular, it is the political heir of the year-long miner's strike of 1984-5 and the tremendous movement of solidarity it inspired in all sections of British society.

Elections 2011 - Thank you for voting SLP.
The Socialist Labour Party wish to thank every one of our supporters and members who have voted for us in their tens of thousands across Britain. Based on the May 5th election we have easily gained far more votes than all of the other left parties standing against us, and having more than doubled our votes in many cases this gives us a strong momentum to go forward with confidence as the party of the left in Britain. Your major electoral support in the face of almost no media coverage gives us yet another massive boost and we can now continue to strengthen our efforts to fight for the welfare of the people of Britain. THANK YOU!
