Vote Labour urges Eddie
Ipswich: As the town’s parliamentary candidates gear themselves up for next week’s hustings, comedian Eddie Izzard dropped in to give his support to Labour’s campaign.
He met candidate Chris Mole and Labour supporters in a brief encounter on the way to Lowestoft, Norwich and Cambridge.
“Chris Mole has a strong record of getting results for Ipswich in Parliament,” said Eddie. “He is an excellent candidate and the right man for Ipswich.”
Thanking the entertainer who recently completed 43 marathons in 51 days for the charity Sport Relief, Mr Mole said: “I want to thank Eddie for stopping in Ipswich to support my campaign for a future fair for Ipswich.
“The election campaign feels like a marathon at times, but it is nothing compared to Eddie’s achievements for Sport Relief.”
