The foundation of the Labour Party on 18 July 2015 was seen as something as a surprise, as Sir Reginald Hall had been expected to join [[Emperor Mother Jayne of Adammia|Emperor Mother Jayne]]'s newly-founded [[Moderate Party (Adammia)|Moderate Party]]. The party went on to see considerable success during the late First Era, controlling 4 out of 12 [[Ruling Council]] seats following the 2016 local elections, when Eleanor Hall gained [[Myway]] from the Liberal Party's Debbie Shaw. The party's prime ministerial candidate, Sir Paul McKenna, lost the 2015 national election to Emperor Mother Jayne, but won in 2016, becoming the first Labour Prime Minister.
 +
 
 +
The party performed poorly in the August 2017 national election, slipping into third place. Following the government transition to the new Birmingham provinces at the start of the Second Era, the party failed to recruit any new members and lost all of its Ruling Council representation, causing widespread belief that it had been all but eliminated as a mainstream political party. However, Lord Sir Sam Maude joined the party in June 2018, offering it a lifeline. Sir Reginald Hall finally stepped down as party president in September 2018, making way for Lord Maude.
 +
 
 +
Under Maude, the party adopted a more radical agenda, echoing the demands of the recently-founded [[Storm Party]] for constitutional reform, whilst distancing itself from some of Storm's more controversial policies. Maude came third in the 2018 national election, with 17.1% of the vote. He was subsequently formed a coalition government with the Storm Party and was appointed by [[Juliano Saunders|Lord Saunders]] as Deputy Prime Minister and as [[Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Adammia)|Minister of Foreign Affairs]]. During his term, Maude often acted as a voice of compromise between the Storm Party and the opposition [[Liberal-Moderate Party|Liberal-Moderates]].

 +
Maude was the sole active voice of Labour until Billy Thompson joined the party, and Maude handed the party leadership over to him in September 2019. Several days later, Thompson rebranded the party as the Red Green Alliance, adopting a more hardline left-wing stance as well as an environmentalist position, becoming the first political party in Adammia to call for the nation to [[w:Climate emergency declaration|declare a climate emergency]].

The Red Green Alliance, formerly known as the Labour Party, is a political party in the Empire of Adammia. Labour was established by Lord Sir Reginald Hall on 18 July 2015. The party rose to prominence in 2016, when its candidate Lord Paul McKenna was elected as Prime Minister. The party's support collapsed in 2017 and it became dormant until June 2018, when it was revived by Lord Sam Maude, who became Deputy Prime Minister. After the leadership of the party was assumed by Billy Thompson in September 2019, he renamed it to the Red Green Alliance.

History

The foundation of the Labour Party on 18 July 2015 was seen as something as a surprise, as Sir Reginald Hall had been expected to join Emperor Mother Jayne's newly-founded Moderate Party. The party went on to see considerable success during the late First Era, controlling 4 out of 12 Ruling Council seats following the 2016 local elections, when Eleanor Hall gained Myway from the Liberal Party's Debbie Shaw. The party's prime ministerial candidate, Sir Paul McKenna, lost the 2015 national election to Emperor Mother Jayne, but won in 2016, becoming the first Labour Prime Minister.

The party performed poorly in the August 2017 national election, slipping into third place. Following the government transition to the new Birmingham provinces at the start of the Second Era, the party failed to recruit any new members and lost all of its Ruling Council representation, causing widespread belief that it had been all but eliminated as a mainstream political party. However, Lord Sir Sam Maude joined the party in June 2018, offering it a lifeline. Sir Reginald Hall finally stepped down as party president in September 2018, making way for Lord Maude.

Under Maude, the party adopted a more radical agenda, echoing the demands of the recently-founded Storm Party for constitutional reform, whilst distancing itself from some of Storm's more controversial policies. Maude came third in the 2018 national election, with 17.1% of the vote. He was subsequently formed a coalition government with the Storm Party and was appointed by Lord Saunders as Deputy Prime Minister and as Minister of Foreign Affairs. During his term, Maude often acted as a voice of compromise between the Storm Party and the opposition Liberal-Moderates.

Maude was the sole active voice of Labour until Billy Thompson joined the party, and Maude handed the party leadership over to him in September 2019. Several days later, Thompson rebranded the party as the Red Green Alliance, adopting a more hardline left-wing stance as well as an environmentalist position, becoming the first political party in Adammia to call for the nation to declare a climate emergency.
