Ipswich Labour Party
In the late 1970's and early 80's I worked as the assistant agent for the Ipswich Labour Party-probably the best party in the country!We had a 3.5% swing TO Labour in 1979, held the seat in 1983, won the council in 1979 and held it for 25 years and trebled our membership over a four year period.
I'm still in touch with the members in Ipswich and they are still delivering the goods with one of the highest contact rates in the country and leading the fight against the Tory /Lib Dim plans to sell off the counil owned Bus company.
I mention this because I have just received a copy of the Party's annual report-a very professional reminder that the party on the ground is ready to take the fight to the Tories, whenever it comes!
Good luck to the Ipswich Labour Party and Chris Mole MP
