Speaking at the TUC Congress in Brighton, she warned that a political party has to be more than a "fan club" and should reach out beyond its own ranks.

Labour's purpose is clear - to deliver wealth and opportunity to the many and not the few, but that means winning a general election to deliver it.

On behalf of working people, my message to Labour is this - look sharp, pull together and do what working people are crying out for Her Majesty's Opposition to do - get stuck in and oppose.

Show the grit, discipline and determination needed to win back economic trust, win back political power and change Britain for the better.

– Frances O'Grady
