    • Profile photo of Ipswi The Upper Orwell Crossings a bridge too far? by Ipswi. 1 2

      From Ipswich Society newsletter Ipswich Society April 2017 (issue 207):- Clever politicians throw their weight behind projects that are likely to succeed and avoid those that will be a long time coming. Thus we can guess that the proposals to build additional bridges over the Orwell and the New Cut are likely to happen sooner rather than later. However the rationale for the biggest of these bridges is debatable and the methodology used to establ…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ben Gummer & Conservative Manifesto by Ipswi.

      Former Conservative Ipswich MP and current Tory candidate for Ipswich, Ben Gummer, Cabinet Minister, was tasked with writing the Conservative Party Manifesto. As you would expect for a 2-times MP and prospective candidate for a third term, Ben is an advocate for Ipswich (in particular for the Ipswich Waterfront). The manifesto didn’t include anything to benefit Ipswich or the Suffolk economy specifically… and the same applies with Ea…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ben Gummer minister responsible for cyber security failings at NHS by Dan.

      Little known to many, Ben Gummer Minister for the Cabinet Office includes responsibilities of public sector efficiency and reform (making cuts), the resilience of the UK’s infrastructure, digital transformation of government, cyber security and UK statistics. Ben knows how to spin figures… he recently lowered unemployed Claimant Count figures in Ipswich by only including the older Jobseekers Allowance rather than the recent Universal Cre…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Something Something… more to do! by Ipswi.

      The same old rhetoric from Ben Gummer “more to do” mandatory phrase following a claimed achievement. This time it is unemployment, which he proudly shows increased under his first two years as MP of Ipswich. We assume he is talking about Claimant Count instead of overall unemployment itself. he has a new hashtag, #IpswichWorking. We struggled to understand how he arrived at his figures on his graph.Unemployment in #ipswich down 63%…

      Already many months overdue, another hurdle has been hit. The bus shelters due to be installed at the brand new renovated Ipswich Rail Station forecourt will not be installed until after the General Election! Perhaps, not until the Summer months. Street lighting, fencing and bus shelters are all pending projects, as the station forecourt remains incomplete and unfinished. Ben Gummer was able to influence additional trees to be installed along th…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ipswich Star bias towards Conservatives by Dan.

      Reading the online version of Ipswich Star it is rather apparent that Paul Geater & Co have a bias towards the Conservatives and candidate Ben Gummer. Newspapers are allowed to have a political bias. Ipswich Star is no The Sun, so will this have much impact on next months General Election result? Archant has an interest due to local paper Ipswich Star sitting in on Ipswich Vision meetings as set up by Ben Gummer which was instrumental into t…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ipswich Campaigning Ltd by Dan.

      The Conservative Party have had a lot of bad press in recent years for alleged election fraud to which they had recently been fined £70,000 for. Of some surprise is searching Benedict Gummer and discovering that on 27 November 2012 he formed a company called Ipswich Campaigning Ltd. Not a non-profit, a private company where he owned the sole £1 share. Nothing wrong with that. More interesting is he specifically extended the accounting period…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ben Gummer takes a dump on WASPI women by Dan.

      In a very shocking letter posted on twitter, former Ipswich MP and now Conservative candidate for Ipswich Ben Gummer has alienated what appears to be a large number of pensioners and women in Ipswich. The letter clearly shows an MP (at the time of writing) under-pressure over being unable to move away from toeing the party line. After all, Ben Gummer promised in 2010 to put Ipswich first and not himself or his party – and he has done the c…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ben Gummer: EU & Brexit by Dan.

      Ben Gummer has recently swallowed his pride away from his Vote Remain stance of just last year, backing PM Theresa May (another pro-EU vote remain supporter) for a snap General Election with emphasis on strong leadership and best negotiation out of the EU. Ben remains upset about his constituency majority vote – despite the former PM David Cameron ordering the EU Referendum after failing to negotiate any terms. Ben Gummer has resulted to t…

      We know politicians tells fibs, little white lies and some major fraudulent ones… Ben Gummer has pushed the boat a little too far this time… “We have come a long way since I first founded the Great Eastern Mainline…”.
