Review of Election Campaign

INTRODUCTION

Labour Party members and supporters had millions of conversations with the public this election.  We were out on the doorstep in the cold, leafleting, phonebanking, tweeting, sharing, fundraising and we did everything we could to get a Labour Government.. and it wasn’t enough.

It's a hard thing to reconcile ourselves to this defeat and it's harder to try to understand it. There's going to be a lot of talk in the media, from the commentators and the pundits about why we lost, but we as a movement need to understand this together. 

To win again we need to understand what worked and what didn’t. Some of the questions will be about the country and Labour’s ability to win over the public, while others will be about our movement and how we organise. 

What we do know is that this review cannot just be conducted from the top but must also include all our voices and perspectives. From the doorknockers, to the phone bankers, to the community organisers, to the people running our social media operations, our members were the people on the ground and together we can help each other piece together the picture to understand what happened in this election. We are a people powered movement so your perspectives matter.

This survey seeks to capture the views of members and activists of Labour’s campaign, including the policies in the manifesto, how it communicated its message and the local and national campaign.  It is only through being honest with ourselves that will enable us to move forward and win in 2024.

The data from this survey will be analysed and reported by the steering committee of the Independent Review of Labour’s 2019 election campaign, managed by Labour Together. Our Steering Committee is drawn from across our party and details of the members can be found here.

You may not be able to answer each question. We want to capture as many experiences and views as possible so please answer as many as you can.  You can complete the survey anonymously (we value every contribution) or leave your contact details at the end so we can keep you posted on the results and other similar initiatives.

This survey will close at 5pm on Friday 21st February 2020
