GREAT NEWS FOR THE ECONOMY WITH THE CONSERVATIVES

Ben Gummer and his colleagues in government are enabling the UK economy to steam ahead.  All the major sectors of the UK economy are picking up in growth  -manufacturing, construction and the dominant services sector have shown this week a rebound in their acceleration, with employment levels continuing to rise, according to Markit/CIPS.

ENERGY PRICE CUTS LIKELY -BUT ONLY IF YOU VOTE CONSERVATIVE…

The Conservatives have frozen vehicle fuel duty since 2011 saving average car drivers over £650 per year. Without the stranglehold of the threat of state control, retail prices have now fallen by typically £1.35/gallon, allowing average consumers a further £600 per year to keep for themselves and spend on their family’s needs. Ed Miliband, the leader of the Labour party, made a pledge in 2013 that he would freeze home energy bills if he were to win the general election of 2015. That pledge looks increasingly insulting to householders across the country now.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to Ben and Sarah Gummer on the safe arrival of their baby boy.

HOLDING IPSWICH LABOUR TO ACCOUNT

Conservative leader Nadia Cenci had called in a decision taken by the council’s Executive, to buy a property in Argyle Street and let it to the Bangladeshi Support Centre on a fifteen year lease, citing concerns that the council may appear to have favoured one community over others who might have wanted to bid for the building, as well as highlighting the risk to the council should a £100,000 lottery bid be unsuccessful.
