Police are appealing for witnesses following a single vehicle road traffic collision which happened in the early hours of this morning.
At approximately 4am, a red Kia Sedona car collided with a tree in Elmcroft Road, Ipswich (close to the junction of Congreve Road).
The single occupant of the car, a man from Ipswich, sustained serious injuries and was taken to Ipswich Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.
Anyone who witnessed this collision is asked to call PC Jeff Cribb at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
The body of a man has been found in Ipswich.
Around 9.20pm yesterday evening, Sunday 16 June, police were contacted by a member of the public with concerns for a man in a property in Little Gipping Street.
Police attended the address and found a man dead inside the property.
The area has been cordoned off while an initial investigation gets underway at the scene.
At this stage, as is standard procedure, the death is being treated as unexplained.
Anyone with information is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101.
Alasdair Ross asks the question “Should the Under 21 Euro Championships have been staged in Israel?” on Twitter with a link to this post on the dRoss Blog.
But on the other side of the wall Israel built football is played and watched in Palestine under the most abnormal of conditions. Massive restrictions of movement, 24 hour surveillance and illegal settlements and land grabs, yet on the football pitch, as recognised by FIFA, Palestine plays football as a nation.
Throughout the tournament Israel has done everything it can to keep attention away from football on the Palestinian side of the wall. Philosophy Football had returned and made a film, the film, shot at the start of June will help to break this silence. The film was premiered in Ramallah at the HQ of the Palestine Olympic Association and simultaneously released on YouTube.
In answer to the question “Should the Under 21 Euro Championships have been staged in Israel?” on the one hand I’m saying “No.” and on the other I’m saying “Yes.”
The reason I’m saying “No.” is because Israel is not in Europe. Israel is a Middle East state and should be treated as one. The more Israel is treated like a Western state instead of a Middle East state the more the idea on the Arab Street, that Israel is a western colonial enterprise is entrenched.
The reason I’m saying “Yes” is because it has enabled some to highlight the present situation Palestinians are living in.
What Ben Gummer feared seems to have come to pass. Ben Gummer MP didn’t call the borough’s council house building programme a vanity project’ but he said that he hoped it wouldn’t be one. What Ben feared seems to be coming to pass. Ipswich Labour keep mentioning it at every opportunity claiming it’s all their doing instead of the government’s. They are spending money on new council houses while letting their existing stock in places like Inverness Road fall apart. It’s like they are being the irresponsible landlord acquiring more properties to get rent from while letting the houses being rented out fall apart. Prefab tenants are having to do their own repairs while Ipswich Labour spends money on new houses. Such is the vanity of Ipswich Labour.
Ipswich Labour also got rid of Area Forums and replaced them with Area Committees so they could sit at the front table looking down on the lowly citizens of Ipswich. This too is vanity.
Ipswich Labour are also full of vanity in regard to the proposed Thorington Barns Wind Farm Proposals. They want to have a massive wind turbine towering over South Ipswich so they can feel pleased with themselves by pretending to be saving the planet. Vanity of Vanities, all is vanity. A chasing after the wind.
Vanity is also being displayed in the way they are claiming not to have planed to axe the Number 16 Bus Route. They delivered a vain leaflet where they were being sanctimoniously dishonest and one of them posted a picture of himself on Twitter claiming it is of him “allaying my residents fears” His residents? There’s probably Persian Cats less vain.
A lot of UKIP type people incessantly moan about the Foreign Aid Budget with clichés about the money getting into the hands of despots and ‘charity begins at home’ As Overseas Aid is better managed now it is less likely to fall into the hands of despots. As a matter of fact it is the carrot to go with the stick. To receive the Aid, countries must improve human rights and the liberties of the people. There is a correlation between improved human rights and economic growth. As countries grow economically, their buying power increases which means that they are able to buy more things from us, improving our economy also.
The alternative to giving countries aid is for countries to stay in poverty with poor human rights and governments who are willing to spend what little money they have on the military. This leads to more war zones that we may have to sort out. We haven’t got the money to keep spending on defence, so it is better to encourage poorer country’s to trade with us than to go to war with us. This is a strategy known as ‘soft defence’ It saves money by leading to less military spending and eventually increases wealth by leading to poor country’s being able to trade with us more in the future.
But then, I nearly had a UKIP supporter admit to me the other day that he’d rather we spent the Aid Money on the military and invaded a few places.
