Labour throws in the towel in South Suffolk

9 Jun 2024
golden rose

As Tom Bartleet  and his volunteer army goes around the constituency he has been struck by two clear messages from voters


1 People want shot of the Tories. Nationally they have been a disaster and locally our MP has taken his seat for granted


2 For those wanting the Tories out the question is often asked who is best placed to achieve that. In the past both Labour and the Liberal Democrats have come second here


With an active ground campaign and a great candidate who is working tirelessly to meet voters and listen to their issues and concerns we genuinely believe Tom has the best chance of causing an upset and defeating the Tories. Unlike other candidates, Tom has been proactive in setting out his priorities should he be elected as our MP: fixing our NHS, boosting our economy and tackling the cost of living crisis.

At the last District Council election we gained two seats ( Labour lost 1)  and saw our vote increase 60% significantly ahead of the Labour performance


But don't just take our word for it!


The Labour Party national site has a section which points potential volunteers to where the party is trying to win


Put in your local South Suffolk postcode  and you get pointed to Colchester, Ipswich or Lowestoft not the local party


Try it yourself I'm volunteering with Labour


The party clearly thinks it has no chance here!


South Suffolk has been Tory for ever but the mood of the country is that they have failed and need to go


Whilst our parties have some significant differences on policy we are also close on environment , the need to invest in public services and the opportunities to work more closely with our European allies


At this election if you normally vote Labour lend us your vote and help send the Tories packing
