Meeting of the new county council at Endeavour house.

The Conservatives at Suffolk County Council must be feeling pretty nervous this morning as they contemplate today’s full meeting of the authority, writes political reporter Paul Geater.

Vote Leave supporters at the regional launch at Kesgrave Hall - but do they stand any chance in next month's referendum.

Earlier this week we published the results of a region-wide poll showing that more people in this part of the world want to leave the EU than want to remain, writes Paul Geater.

Ever since the results from last Thursday’s elections were declared, political pundits have been poring over them and giving their own interpretation of who won and who lost.

Planning officials and planning rules aren’t every developers’ favourite subjects, writes Paul Geater.

The sad news about the apparent likely demise of BHS is being touted by many as another example of a much-loved high street name failing to adapt with the times.

I’ve been covering elections for years, no decades, and I cannot remember a May campaign that has felt quite so flat as this one.

Ipswich is the only Suffolk council to have widespread elections on May 5 – although the whole county will be able to vote in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

So after 10 weekends of disruption we can finally start thinking of travelling to London by train at the weekend again, writes Paul Geater.
