I should like to ask, what are the Labour candidate’s views on Brexit?


Does he wholeheartedly support Brexit, or would he vote to stop Brexit if he were given the chance?

No ‘garden board’ posters available locally. I need three plus some window posters for previously Tory Suffolk village. Where can I get them, please?

Hi,

I’d like a board to put up outside our home supporting Corbyn’s Labour please.

Am unavailable for door to doors but if there’s anything else that I can do please let me know.

Are there any public events coming up to advertise, for example?

All the best!

Re Dave Frost Thank you for your reply, at least we have accord that we need to win and other things, history shows us that the most popular Leader at the polls does not mean he or she is the most suitable or best person to govern a country, however when the establishment seek to besmirch a man’s character by deception & lies, we should ask ourselves why. All Labour candidates & party members should get behind JC for the sake of the Labour party if nothing else, he is in my humble opinion a good & honest man & with the support of all Labour voters he could be a great leader, only time would tell. Let’s face it will most likely be a Tory or Labour government, so is it a man with strong ideals & fairness or a “strong & stable” women with a bag of sweets for the lower order, with open cheques to the rich?
commented 2017-05-11 16:06:24 +0100
RE Francis Woods comments, no problem with anybody being left of centre in fact I am sure JC fully is a man of trust, he along with his shadow front benches have strong convictions.

When PM questions get’s going he holds his own but I make this point “She looks over his shoulder and sees a split party” the whole country sees that.

Lets hope in July when the dusts settles the left will see that the PLP is needed because they truly without any doubts hold our vote, that is where the power of the Labour Party is, you need the width of this party to fully engage with the Tory’s or any other party or risk being a fringe party.

The Labour Party needs every vote so if anybody is thinking about voting for the Tory’s remember that there are still some Nasty people sitting on their front benches, one thing I will say is like in life there are good and bad where ever you look, if we all wish to have a better life keep looking in depth and question all.

Re David R Frost comment, The Labour is surely a centre Left socialist party, as a little further to the left I do not nominate myself as a Marxist or even Communist, although there exists a fairly even split between “working class” & “capitalist class”. The Labour party is a broad church & I would like to see my “brothers & sisters” get together behind Jeremy Corbyn & his team of choice, after all is said & done, if this next election is a landslide for the tory party I would hazard a guess at it being ultra right within a few months, Theresa May will be ousted no doubt for along with the “Old guard” of the few left that had any remnants of integrity. The alternative at this time is another term of Conservative austerity for the many, “what’s been hid & what’s been hid” is of little consequence now, get together & stand firm or we lose! Or are we going to be swayed by the likes of the 87 y.o. Pigeon fancier in the midlands who has been a Labour voter all his life but won’t vote for JC along with the rest of cr*p that the BBC etc. put on as news

I note that Ben Gummer is on FB, do you not think that FB is more popular with youngsters? Last item on FB by Ipswich labour was on the 2nd of May, hardly promoting Sandy! Our man has got to be out there & not standing alone in the shadows.

Today I just became aware of how deep the problem is with Labour, how far does this party need to travel before it becomes a fringe party.

Those including the leader have their heads in the sand, the left has the party in its grasp, tail wagging the dog, Corbyn and Co will stay even after a crushing blow that is coming fast.

They are in control of this party’s demise from being a great party into chaos, thanks for coming is Corbyns response, anybody who watched Diane Abbots failure on Police numbers and costs plus McDonald not answering a simple question “are you a Marxist” if anybody thinks the public is just going to vote just because the name is Labour think on.

The facts are Labour voters are not all members of the Labour party, the rule change on membership gave them the chance to get the troops in and vote in the left political charged new members, how is this done, well not telling the truth is a starter.

The damage done is done so this election and very likely the next, this is a party heading for fringe status, the only way the left is giving this up is a rule change, how is this going to happen, well I think this is heading into the high Court.

It was in my mind to rejoin the Labour party when the Party had shaken off the left, this is going to be a big fight, one that requires me to be a member not just on the outside throwing in rocks.

I hope nobody removes this post or even thinks this is anti Labour as it is time for a fight for good common sense, my grandchildren need a good level head with sharp on track front bench politicians with nothing hidden.

UKIP is on its knees the Tory are mopping them all up, we have left the EU it’s only the detail that needs thinking about, its done, we that voted to leave won, it is a vote loser to pretend anything different, 48% to 52% is a result and even if you do not like it, go with the democratic majority.

In the 60’s the Electricians Union was infiltrated by the left wing communist party, it took a hard fight to get them out, the unions leader Frank Chappell kicked them out before they took over.

Good luck to all MP’s who will pay the price with their seat.

With Labour clinging on to a little bit of Suffolk for the next 4-years, I assume the local party can now forge through it’s “have and have nots” policy by housing the ever increasing number of homeless people wandering around our town centre?
commented 2017-05-03 08:05:33 +0100
I filled out a volunteer request form a few days ago and still haven’t received anything. I’m really eager to get involved and help. I have three children and I want them to grow up in the world with a fighting chance of a good life, unlike what the one the tories are creating.
commented 2017-04-29 14:57:56 +0100
Interested to know who is standing and what strategy you have opted for to contest Ipswich? For me, highlighting the inadequate provision of mental health facilities for adolescents – you know, the fact that Suffolk does not have a crisis intervention team; that there are no beds for adolescents experiencing acute illness and care in the community is stretched, at a time when so many youngsters are in need – a powerful argument for a junior health minister to grapple with! Also the dire financial state of schools in the area (if you contacted any head teacher in the area, they would give you a wealth of damning stats) would be a challenge for Gummer. I also think that Gummer has made a huge error naming his ‘bulletin’ – Ben’s Bulletin – such arrogance, especially as half the things he has claimed credit for would have happened with or without him! Easily exploited with a more community minded and compassionate approach

Be great if the Ipswich labour candidate is female. It would be a first, I believe.
commented 2017-04-18 18:20:59 +0100
Who’s standing as the Ipswich candidate.hopefully overturning Gummer’s 3700 majority.

Regional Policy Event:

An open invitation to all patriotic people of UK for Socio-Political System Change to empower the people at grass root level.


An open invitation to all patriotic people including women, youth, workers, farmers intellectual, nationalist and progressive people and media, to come forward, read, understand and decide, why should British citizen follow the programmed of “decentralization of power at grass root level on the basis of county and take the reign of leadership in their hands for the Socio-political change in Britain”.


The spirit of British society is based on welfare of working class 0ppressed people and their families, but the cause of the welfare have generally been suppressed by the vested group. This aspect of people’s life is being side-lined deliberately, therefore representation of workers require in the bodies where rulers should decide and discuss the fate of this action on worker life, their wages and fair working condition.


But unfortunately since the introduction of democracy in Briton the way and means of exploitations has been rapidly change under the law, bargaining power of workers has been decline. Workers ability to protest has been reduced, therefore, the section of society such as, women, youth, laborer, farmers and intellectual etc. are being isolated, ignored, therefore exploited by the cleaver people under protection of law.


Thing is very much clear now that the root cause of exploitation and injustice is the manipulation of labor and farm-labor, women, youth is due to current system of sole power in one hand or few of them and powerless people. But unfortunately still the leadership of working people is running after the ruling elites as savior of oppressed people.


This is a time to unite for collective action from all the section of the society, the labor, farmer, youth, women and intellectuals for emancipation of society from the exploiter of this majority. People should have to come forward for the change of system from centralize sole power in the hands of one or few of them to decentralize the power at grass route level in the hands of downtrodden oppressed people on the basis of county, in Briton, so, let us unite on following points of collective struggle such as;


• To provide free education with technical training (skill) to every youth.

• A guarantee for job should be provided to every one after completing their education with skill development.

. Arrange separate working facility, without male interference in women worker to enhance production and services in the country. So, women can use their ability without fear of intimidation or Exploitation by the male member in any form without pay Discrimination.

• To establish research institution at county level to encourage the youth having natural instinct to invent and to encourage the youth for research work in order to develop technology at home.

• A better health facilities and insurance coverage should be provided to every working Person.

• A better residential facility should be provided to every worker.

• A chip and safe transport facilities should be provided to all working people.

• To endeavor to secure, improved and better relationship between employers and workers.

. To encourage and promote cooperatives farming within the county to provide cheap and quality food product along with developing by product industries in the ruler area of the county for the benefit of the people.

• To promote literacy and skills amongst the workers through, adult free education, vocational training and skill development.

• For rapid industrialization in the country local capital should be protected, inclined and encouraged for rapid development of small, medium and large agro- industries.

• Open the door for foreign investment with technology transfer with complete protection.


To promote, protect and defend all human rights within the country and to establish and promote cooperation with like-minded organizations of civil society for protection and advancement of all basic rights, and to endeavor for the establishment of rule of law, independent judiciary and good governance.


Inviting all those believed in change of socio-political system for downtrodden people, so that they can, decide the fate of their own future and their generation, with dignity and respect. We must come forward and join hands to take the reign of leadership responsibility to prove, for prosperous, progressive and peace full Britain


Since the creation of democratic system in Britain, British people are left at distant from the corridor of power so that the ruling elite can do what they wanted to do in favors of their interest, leaving the people at the mercy of circumstances. This policy is denial of right of British people to rule their country according to their aspiration and desire, which can provide equal opportunity to all without any discrimination to rule their country and share in decision making process creating a real democratic society.


Our ruling elite have lost the time to save the centralized sole power to exploit this country, creating uncertainty and chaos in the different part of the United Kingdom Armed struggle and separation movement in the country cannot be a sign of satisfaction in the public it’s a clear distrust in the system of sole power in one hand or few of them. The solidarity and unity within the people of different part or provinces of the country can be developed, if we accept to empower the people at grass root level and allowed them to join decision making process.


This is time to let the masses to rule this country democratically. In the present circumstances we are on the path of democratic dictatorship of rich and mighty, ignoring the real stakeholder to take the leadership in their hand for the sack of their generation and Nation, current system, leading our country towards destructive path.


No sole power system within a free country can achieve the prosperity or socio-political justice, the need is to change the prevailing socio-political system within the country. If we will jointly attempt for the change we will not be isolated and all the oppressed people and working class (laborer/farmer) will unite to make the dream come true ,therefore the need is to apply democracy to implement socio-economic justice and establishment of a just society by eliminating the core base of centralize sole power to empower the people at grass root level on the basis of county, so that people could feel their voice/opinion take note in the decision making process affecting the future of their generation and Nation.


This change is inevitable for the prosperous independent Britain to acquire rapid industrial and agriculture development with transparency and accountability in the system with strong research base in all counties.

I fully support Jeremy corbyn, he’s one of only a few politicians I could say I trust and believe is standing up for the real majority of people. Before he was leader there was no clear difference between the torys and labour, it seemed that voting for ed would just get you a less drastically austerity obsessed government. While corbyn acknowledges that austerity isn’t a must, why should the poorest and younger generation pay for the mess the banks left our economy in? Re-nationalising services like the railways and investing more in council housing, i cannot imagine another labour leader being elected to offer such hope for the future. And of course after the massive amount of people joining the Labour Party just to vote him leader (including me) it would be a massive disappointment for him to be replaced after a number of his own MPs turn on him. Let’s not forget the vote of no confidence of David Cameron which obtained over 100000 signatures and got no media attention… GO CORBYN!

Support Jeremy corbyn .i have been a life long labour voter.it is so refreshing to hear a politician speak with true conviction such as Jeremy.i feel it would be a real mistake to remove him just because he didn’t support the remain campaign as much as you would have liked.if he is removed I fear you will lose your parties identity and really wouldn’t know who to vote for in the future.i would probably not vote.

Thank you.

I am ashamed of being British, and my own lack of action for a decent UK society since resigning from the Labour Party when Tony Blair became leader. I want to make an honest effort – NOW – to discover if the Labour Party still has any relevance in this country… and where I should put my energy… if there is any hope of saving this country from racism and selfish disintegration.
