  • The population of Ipswich stat is patently false! It`s been about 130, 000 ever since I can remember yet there has been thousands of immigrants move in since then? Of course, if half of them are under the radar, say no more, then these figures are merely a guess.....or more sinisterly a deliberate attempt to bull the public that nobody has moved here at all!

  • Here's some more key stats: 17% = Ipswich's Suffolk County Councillors 13 from 75. 0% = Ipswich County Council cabinet members residing in Ipswich. 246,000 = Greater Ipswich TTW 2010 Labour Market (dependent on Ipswich). £6.2b = Greater Ipswich GVA - gross value assetsize of our economy, but with 50% of it benefiting rural coastal Suffolk, not urban Ipswich. 750 = No. of years Ipswich had control over its local government. 41 = No. of years it has taken two tier government to mismanage and siphon off the town's assets, and "Suffolkate" it ! 0 = our chances of Ipswich succeeding under this form of local government.
