The Labour Party is a Centre-Left political party in the United Kingdom. It is currently the largest political party in the UK, followed by the Conservatives, and is currently in a coalition with the Liberal Democrats.

Labour was founded in the early 20th Century as the working classes started to join the electorate, and soon became one of the two main parties, alongside the Conservatives, replacing the Liberals in that role.
