|See how good your MP is.....|

Change.org have graded every MP on how responsive they are to their own constituents.
Mine comes 499th (and got 62% of the vote last time)

You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
|Anyone live in an area where their vote matters?|
at 10:07 21 Nov 2019
Lots of threads on politics on here - but given the UK voting system the Tories will keep all their seats in most of Ipswich catchment area (Ipswich aside - with maybe Labour Cambridge up for grabs too).
The right wing Tory loon parachuted into Saffron Walden got over 60% of the vote despite living in Wimbledon - and will almost certainly keep her seat as the LIb Dem on offer is an uninspiring grey beard who has been on the receiving end of the voice of the Uttlesford people before.
Could be worse....if I lived 1 mile west I would be mourning the loss of the fragrant Heidi Allen.

Were any of you lot amongst my million closest friends yesterday? Or does your angst at the probable end of the UK and democracy, cutting the umbilical cord that sustains our economy with no idea of how to piece together an intensive care unit to nurture a recovery end with words on here?

Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

We live in strange times. Town’s embarrassing embarrassment of recent Premier League and Championship play-off bogeymen Bolton Wanderers highlighted the massive financial and ethical problems now facing football, eloquently discussed in the recent blog by Stowmarket.

I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.

Many older supporters who know nothing and care even less about computer-based football games have a passing interest in fantasy football.

Apologies if covered before - but this was quite a good drama that filled a post Game of Thrones void. If only 10% was half true it made disturbing viewing. Looking forward to the follow up series The Leiston Triangle.

The season is over, the Lambert love-in has cooled and the dust is just about settling on the season ticket hype.

Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.

Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.

There once was a gent called Mister John
Who went to a school for toffs called Eton
For him a crisis defined
Was a lack of white wine
Ipswich Town’s not the same since he’s gone

It’s fair to say that the Marcus Evans era has seen a bit of a change in the way the club is run. For instance, the now scarcely-credible, revolving door recruitment policy.
