      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).

    • 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…

      Sir Bob Russell has to be admired for his achievements he has done for his home town and thoroughly deserved being knighted for such service.

However, for Ipswich it poses some significant challenges:-The proposed Ipswich and Colchester merger to form a cross-county Unitary Authority. It would be better for Ipswich to join forces with …

      Reaction as Ipswich is ranked as the UK’s 13th unhappiest place The Office of National Statistics asked a sample of 180 people in the town to rate ‘how happy they were yesterday’ on a scale of one to ten.
