My Nearest Marginal

There’s no time and a mountain of work to do. For the first time in a generation, there is a real alternative to the status quo. But this election is dominated by spin, fear and a media establishment funded by a corrupt, wealthy elite.

Together, we can change this. Money and the media don’t have to decide who will run Britain. While the Sunday Times’ Rich List are funding the Tories, we have hundreds of thousands of people who can have real conversations on the doorstep. Research shows this is the most effective way to win an election. And we have a plan to make this happen.

And your role is critical. This is how people-powered movements work. Give us your support. Right now, every single pound counts. Together, we can defeat May and her corporate backers.

Today we’re launching our general election crowdfunder. We’ve got less than four weeks to beat Theresa May. Less than four weeks to elect the Labour Party on a socialist platform.

Now is the time. Let’s do this.

With your support, here’s what will happen:

  • Campaign Weekends where we flood Labour battlegrounds with thousands of Momentum activists.
  • Making your canvassing count with our brand new tool
  • Revolutionary peer-to-peer volunteer organising software brought over from the Bernie Sanders campaign.
  • People across the country mobilising with our Call for Labour web-app.
  • Training thousands of activists across the UK to have real conversations on the doorstep.

I’m backing the plan

This is urgent. We’ve got less than a month. This is it. Stop Theresa May.

In solidarity,

Paul Mason
Journalist and Momentum Activist




Momentum is funded entirely by membership fees and donations from thousands of supporters across the UK.

  1. This is a Momentum view of the world – the nearest Labour marginal is Ilford North where Wes Streeting is defending a majority of 586. Alternatively you could go to Hove where Peter Kyle is defending a majority of 1236. You will need to ask Momentum as to why it is taking such a selective view as to which Labour candidates it is supporting.
