LabourList is a British aggregated weblog supportive of the Labour Party. Launched in January 2009, the site overcame its founding editor's involvement in the so-called "smeargate scandal" to become one of the most popular and influential political websites in Britain with 305,000 readers in its first year. Describing itself as Labour's "biggest independent grassroots e-network", the site's content includes news, commentary, interviews, analysis and opinion from various contributors and sources. In June 2009, LabourList became the British affiliate to American liberal news website The Huffington Post.The site features material from a broad cross-section of the Labour movement from activists to cabinet ministers, in addition to regular posts by the editor Alex Smith and a core group of columnists, which include Paul Richards and Anthony Painter.
