Ken Weech was MP for Ipswich between October 1974 and 1987. In honour of the 30th anniversary of his election, Ipswich Labour Party hosted a lunch in his honour. Everyone speaks very highly of him though this was the first time I'd met him. He gave a short speech telling us about the amateur nature of the 1974 campaign - the TV press conferences were given from behind a tresle table! He thinks Tony Blair is an excellent leader: "A politician of the highest calibre".
