Ipswich Labour Won't Celebrate Brexit

At Wednesday's meeting of the full Ipswich Borough Council, the Labour Executive which runs the council, rejected the opportunity for Ipswich to have a celebration of Brexit on 31st January nor replace the EU flag by the Flag of Suffolk.

Christmas and New Year greetings from Tom

Firstly, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and I wish everyone in Ipswich are happy New Year! Ipswich is a great place to be at this time of year, our fantastic pubs are alive with merriment and there are so many carol services it’s been impossible for me to even try and get to everyone.

Merry Christmas from us

May we wish a Merry Christmas to residents of Ipswich from all of us from the Ipswich Conservative Association- Councillors, Tom Hunt MP, and the Executive Council. 

Thoughts from our new MP, Tom Hunt

It has been the greatest honour of my life to have been elected as the Member of Parliament for Ipswich in the early hours of Friday morning. 


Congratulations to Tom Hunt who has been elected as the new Conservative MP for Ipswich.

Our thanks to the 24,952 people in the constituency who have voted for Tom.

The other results were-


Green party 1283

Lib-dems 2439

Labour 19,473


On Thursday, you have the chance to end the gridlock.

No more arguments. It’s time to end the uncertainty.

Let’s be honest. The country has been stuck in a rut.

Parliament has spent the last three years going round in circles – agreeing on nothing except more arguments.

Tom's focus on tackling crime in Ipswich

Since early November we've spoken to over 8,000 people across the Town. The need to tackle crime has come up time and time again. Its been the number one local issue raised directly with me. If elected there will be no greater priority for me than working to tackle crime across Town.

Tom's thoughts from the campaign trail

Since the 1st of November I have spoken to over 8,000 individuals from all across the town. Many of these people have been life long traditional Labour Party voters and they feel they have been betrayed by the party they have supported for so long.
