A good press release should always start with the who, what, when, where, and why in the first paragraph, so we’ll use these as sub-headings of this ‘about Labour Matters’ page:
Labour Matters is written by our contributors who send their press releases to us and our volunteer staff who review existing news and blog articles of interest.
We publish press releases from elected Labour representatives and official election candidates, Council Labour Groups, and CLPs.
Labour Matters is a tool to publish Labour news which otherwise would not be available online. By routinely publishing news sent to us via email we make it easy for Labour newsmakers to create a new source of information for their constituents.
Labour Matters was created immediately following the 2008 local elections. News is published every day that it is received, often within minutes of being sent to us.
Labour Matters is an Web-only resource which mimics a newspaper but it isn’t available in print. We publish Labour news from all over the country, limited only by the contributors who use our service.
Labour Matters aims to provide unfiltered news direct from Labour’s newsmakers, making it available to anyone who wants to find it. We make every effort to ensure that our articles are easily found using search engines and we welcome links from sympathetic sites too. That’s because we want to increase the number of people who can read about the diverse activities of Labour all over Britain because we believe that the more that people learn of Labour’s values, the more likely they are to support Labour.
