Unlike Nadia Cenci I haven’t been mentioned in the Guardian yet but I have been misquoted by Ipswich Barmy, Bolshevik Blogger, Comrade Coates here.
Come to Sunshine Ipswich and Sleep in Gutters Says Top-Suffolk Tory.
Kevin Alger, prominent Ipswich Tory and failed candidate for the Gipping Ward, has a novel suggestion for how to solve the nation’s housing problems.
“Come to Ipswich and sleep in doorways and alleys.”
Or as he puts it,
“have a camping holiday in the town.”
Kevin, who spends much of his time speaking in tongues and charming snakes at the ‘Holey Roller’ Pentecostal Church, at the top of the London Road, is obviously onto something.
What I actually said can be found in the comments on Comrade Coate’s blog here What I said was “ The increase in people sleeping rough in Ipswich does not necessarily mean there is an increase in homelessness. When the weather turns nice some people decide to have a camping holiday in the town.”
The phrase ‘camping holiday in the town’ was first used by me here where I said “PC Alcock also informed us of an increase in people sleeping rough. Not because homelessness has increased but because in the summer some people decide to have ‘a camping holiday in the town’” This got no reaction at the time from the Barmy Bolshevik yet when I said it recently the mad Marxist responded with a surreal and deranged blog post.
What’s a ‘Holey Roller’? Maybe he means ‘Holy Roller’ Why he claims I go to the Pentecostal Church, at the top of the London Road, is a mystery. He obviously doesn’t know that a late pastor of the Church’s son was a Labour candidate in the last council elections.
