Nope, there is an election coming up next month (county elections) and a General Election the following month. Gummer knows he has 10 weeks before anything could possibly get done in government (such as SCC Cabinet meetings are quarterly), plenty of time to get re-elected and keep the Tory majority at the county council.
I urge anyone not to be…[Read more]

He has a new facebook post…
There are few things worse than piles of litter discarded on our streets and strewn across our hedges. Even the smallest amount of litter can ruin what would otherwise be lovely community spaces. That is why the council employ people to clean our streets – diverting public money away from other vital services.

It didn’t show up above as he deleted his original tweet. He had a photo of the paved area with the rows of trees far in the background.

He then replied to the reply of his original tweet with this!

Not that visible though.

I don’t really see any candidate demonising EU nationals to win votes.
ISCRE are probably just looking for more public funding, jumping on the bandwagon…
Dan replied to the topic First Group prepares to take over Ipswich Park & Ride in the forum Ipswich News 11 hours, 35 minutes ago
Park & Ride £500,000 annual subsidy, I work that out to be around £320 per bus per working day.
For a 12 minute current frequency they might as well be very 15 minutes in all honesty. If they could work it so buses depart at 00, 15, 30 and 45 it would work very well.
In my view the buses from each Park & Ride site should go into town and then b…[Read more]
I thought Ipswich was turning a corner but it seems we have fell back into the cesspit and hell hole of around the time of the recession fallout similar to around about the time of the serial murders. Plenty of positive spin but very little to show. Ben and Co are adamant of getting the wine rack completed this still leaves the remainder of the…[Read more]

I guess he will be tortured and offered an opportunity to hack Russia instead of prison.

I think this would have been amazing. The Ipswich Central BID is behind preventing competition for its levy payers. We never had this problem traditionally.
Ben should be happy that Chopstix is opening soon in Sailmakers…. Although the trend seems to be eating unauthentic and bland Asian food to seem sophisticated. So many of these places appear busy when they shouldn’t be.

Unfortunately the park seems to have disappeared off the plans over the years… why waste valuable development land in return for beautification and trees? Although he seems very proud of the trees at the rail station.
A later article now suggests the suspect touched his own crotch before sniffing her hair. Perhaps this article was written in error or perhaps both happened. Either way, not pleasant.
Mark Ling will be over the moon!
It is unbelievable how long it has taken, especially with all the pro-Olympic and anti-obesity exercise/sports for children agenda.
I am confident when it does reopen that it will be popular in the summer holidays.

Such a shame it can’t be used as a hotel with a pub on the bottom floor.
2031 regional forecast of 254,130 cars… I say regional it includes just most of Suffolk.
Looking at just the Ipswich borough just over 80,000 cars, so lets assume 60,000 cars use the Greater Ipswich road network in just one peak period per week…
I just found this SCC map of the route of a Upper Orwell Crossing…
It appears to me the bridge goes through the industrial estate part (self-storage), curves and cuts through part of the Ipswich Dock West Bank, across the River Orwell rather straight, cuts through Ship launch and curves just north of Toller Road.
On exploring the information I came across the conclusion that the Northern Route and Northern Relief Road are Tory and Labour terms for the same. Both Ben Gummer and David Ellesmere have (but rarely) dropped the term “Northern Bypass” whilst typically using the other term primarily. Whoever wins control of Suffolk County Council, will race to…[Read more]
SCC is Tory-led and an county election coming up… you won’t receive anything until after the county elections… and would it be wrong to assume, a delay based upon the General Election also?
This is down to you as an individual (but not personally you) not being important enough for the local authority (compared to someone like Ben Gummer who…[Read more]
