The Labour Party is a centre-left to left-wing political party in the United Kingdom. Initially one of the founding parties of MHoC, the Labour Party has been described as a "broad church". Today the party encompasses a diversity of ideological trends, from strongly socialist to more moderately social democratic. It is currently in Official Opposition with 17 Members of Parliament.

History

The Labour Party was one of the original three parties. In the first general election, the Labour Party grew to overtake the Liberal Democrats and became the Conservative Party's main opposition. Labour formed the first MHoC government, alongside the Liberal Democrats. They later served as a minor partner in the third, fourth, fifth, and then finally became the principal partner in the sixth government under can_triforce.

In the eighth election, Labour made gains, going from 13 seats to 15 seats, in the Ninth, it reached a peak of 22, and formed a government with the Conservative and Unionist Party. At the tenth General Election, it lost seats, bringing the total down to 15. In the eleventh General Election, Labour gained two seats and became the second-largest party in the House of Commons with 17 seats.
