Ipswich election campaign launched by Ed Miliband

The Labour campaign to win back Ipswich was launched at the Priory Centre on Queensway, Ipswich this morning by Cabinet minister, Ed Miliband. He met with a number of local residents and also a good number of Labour councilors and candidates (including myself).

Ed spoke about neighbourhood policing and measures that the Labour Government have bought in and are bringing in to help clamp down on anti-social behaviour. One of our priorities that we must have whilst campaigning is to get over to the public that many of the "good news" stories that the Tories are campaigning on are due to Labour Government money and policy.

Now it is down to the nitty gritty of campaigning- leaflet delivering, knocking on doors and talking to the residents- at least it is not raining!

It was interesting to see that you choose one of your safest wards to entertain your visiting minister.

It appears that Labour are only interested in clinging on to the safest wards that they have in Town as they become increasingly distanced from the electorate.

As we get closer to the July 2010 GE, Brown will become increasingly grey, just as Major did in the last days of his government.
