in scotland tenancy fees are banned and there has been talks of the same happening in England. but my kids are still being shafted by these criminal fees. My son has just been charged £114 to simply renew his 6 monthly contract. which means another £114 in 6 months time. I’m beyond furious. He’s moving in fees were outrages, and even included a checking out fee of £160 before he had even moved in. Please can someone get back to me on this.GRRRRR

Would it be possible to have a meeting, with Mr Martin, in relationship to Pension Schemes gone wrong.

hi,i am contacting Mr Martin in the hope that he can do something about the repair of Pickwick Road in Ipswich.It is on the triangle council estate.Many people in our road have complained about it, using the County council`s web site,but to no avail.There are several large potholes and the tarmac surface is in need of repair.We haved lived in this road for over 37 years,and the last time any major surfacing work was done was around 25 years ago.i am beginning to wonder where our council tax goes certainly not on the repair of this road.The council have marked many area`s in yellow paint,but that was several months ago,and nothing has been done.Thank you in anticipation of your involvement with this matter

Just wanted to know about joining the labour party to do my small bit to aid j.Corban to oust this Tory lunacy from destroying this country.

I don’t think I have ever seen such a happy bunch of Labour MPs and supporters celebrate so much given they only have 40% of the vote, surprising even them it was at all possible. So smug in fact the leadership seems to think it can now form a minority govt. When you all wake up in the morning you will be still be the main opposition party.
commented 2017-06-09 11:11:34 +0100
To say a huge thank – you to Jeremy Corbyn , keep going. A wonderful result , looking forward to an even better one , as soon as possible.
commented 2017-06-04 19:42:54 +0100
A message for Mr Corbyn.

With respect, he seemed a but fudgy’ on the nuclear button first strike question. He needs to explain the potential consequences and the possibility of retaliation of such an action…Maybe then they would not be so keen to have the red button pushed.

Unfortunately, somebody has vandalised the ‘Vote Labour’ board outside of our house last night.

Is it possible that we could get a repair/replacement please?

Please could I have a window poster sent to me.
commented 2017-05-21 11:16:01 +0100
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?
commented 2017-05-21 04:46:12 +0100
Please can I have a board in my front garden ?

No ‘garden board’ posters available locally. I need three plus some window posters for previously Tory Suffolk village. Where can I get them, please?
commented 2017-05-17 23:15:52 +0100

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
commented 2017-05-10 13:07:41 +0100
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.
commented 2017-05-07 18:15:12 +0100
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
commented 2017-04-25 21:17:48 +0100
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.
commented 2017-04-18 15:32:01 +0100
