Labour Hame was set up in the aftermath of the 2011 Scottish general election by Tom Harris MP, Kezia Dugdale MSP and others who care deeply about Scottish Labour and want it to succeed. It was conceived of as a place to talk – somewhere where all the theories about what was wrong, and all the ideas that might make things right, could be properly expressed, debated and challenged.

In late 2014, after the independence referendum, there was once again a need to find, debate and express the views of progressive people across Scotland in the context of a devolution settlement now confirmed as the settled will of the Scottish people. Labour Hame was relaunched to help facilitate that discussion. We have published over 800 articles across a wide range of subjects, all of which can be accessed from our archive.

We are aligned with the Scottish Labour Party, but we are not here to slavishly support it. A wide range of views is sought. If you would like to contribute, please take a look at how you can submit articles for publication here.
