    Smile New Labour?

    Sir Ian, a long-time darling of New Labour, was told in no uncertain terms he had to go after damaging new sleaze allegations were made against him.

    Mr Johnson brought his disastrous reign to an end at an acrimonious showdown on Wednesday where he declared he had no confidence in the commissioner.
    Hello! I learned there're two main parties in the UK, that is the Labour Party, and the Conservative Party.

    Does New Labour refer to the Labour Party? Is there any distintive difference between New and Old Labour Party?

    There is only one Labour Party, which at its roots is founded in socialist principles and drew its strength from the Trades Unions of labourers.

    Tony Blair chose to call his new government New Labour as he wanted to break free of the old connection to the Trades Union and the socialist tenets they applied. The current government is trying to forget the term.

    A lot of the fuss about the emergence of 'New Labour' revolved around the rewriting of Clause IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia of the Labour Party's constitution.
