Labour Party

You'd expect the Labour Party, nationally and in the East of England, to be at the top of this list.

A number of local Labour parties in Suffolk and North Essex have websites.  You might like to visit; Suffolk Coastal, Colchester and Harwich Labour Parties.

The Wider Labour Movement

Along with trade unions, the co-operative movement was instrumental in the formation of the Labour Party; the Co-operative Party continues this tradition of political activism.

Left of Centre Thought

There is plenty of vibrant political thought within and around the Labour party, on the broad left of British politics; the Fabian Society, Progress and Compass offer some of the most influential views on the things we all care care about.  There are many other "think-tanks" with particular areas of interest.  We like: The Work Foundation, The King's Fund, ippr and smf.

Labour List has established itself as the UK's leading left political blog and you might also like Left Foot Forward and Tory Stories.  These websites, and others, are leading the Left's fight back against Tory/Right domination of the web.

Individuals With a Local Connection

We must not forget our own blogging councillor, Alasdair Ross, or that honorary son of Ipswich, Peter Wheeler.
