Could an expanded Ipswich become a more successful retail centre?

Have you ever stopped to think what the long-term future holds for Ipswich and Suffolk? writes Paul Geater.

What will the new county council make-up look like after May?

For many of the councillors who gather in Endeavour House for today’s budget discussions this is THE meeting that they believe will set the tone for the next four years at Suffolk County Council, writes Paul Geater.

This is the time of year when we hear about the crisis in the NHS with A&E units struggling to cope – and social care facing financial meltdown, writes Paul Geater.

I cannot imagine how miserable life must be as a commuter – especially someone travelling four or five times a week to London, writes Paul Geater.
