Alasdair Ross is a disingenuous hypocrite. How he is disingenuous I shall explain later in this post. He is a hypocrite because here he has launched a personal attack on me in a post on his blog and in response to this post of mine, he is going to be Emailing and tweeting privately to various Ipswich Conservatives, complaining that I have launched a personal attack on him.
The champagne socialist’s post it titled Ipswich Tory activist- can’t even remember what he said last week.
An Ipswich Tory activist seems to have a slight memory problem, earlier in the week in a tweet he declared that some Syrian refugees were just men dodging conscription!

@AlasdairRoss We are helping genuine refugees rather than better off Syrians who did a bunk when they got their conscription papers.
Even for Kevin this was a quite shocking statement , so I tweeted:

An Ipswich Tory activist/candidates description of refugees > “better off Syrians who did a bunk when they got their conscription papers.”
But Kevin today seems to forget that he had described certain refugees as conscription dodgers:

@AlasdairRoss No Tory activist has described Syrian refugees like that. You’re being disingenuous. #TypicalAlasdair
It seems Kevin has a memory issue, then again when we highlighted that the Tories had been silent over the new development planned for Chantry Vale, but today he seemed to use the excuse that the development was outside the Borough, strange then that he has tweeted and posted on his blog a number of posts about the building of a wind turbine – also in Babergh and actually further away from houses in Sprites and Gipping. In April 2013 he even boasted that it was only himself and fellow Nadia Cenci who had stood against the turbine.
Is that why senior Ipswich Tories like their MP and leader block me on twiiter? Do they also have ‘memory’ problems!
Now I did indeed say that certain people who are being called refugees are in fact conscription dodgers.
It is very disingenuous to claim that “We are helping genuine refugees rather than better off Syrians who did a bunk when they got their conscription papers.” is saying that refugees are conscription dodgers. Alasdair is basically indulging in a smear campaign against me and the mud won’t stick.
Now concerning Chantry Vale. Here, Alasdair said this
On Saturday we had a strong team out campaigning in South West Ipswich, we were informing residents of the large scale development planned for Chantry Vale – the area to the west of Chantry Park. The development is poorly planned, (there is no master plan) and the houses are of bad design – but the issue is that Chantry Vale is outside the Borough, it is in Tory run Babergh. It is their planning committee who will decide if the scheme is approved and if it is, it will be Babergh Council who will collect all the council tax but it is Ipswich where the new residents will look to for services not Sudbury or Hadleigh.
This is all very disingenuous. Firstly local residents were at a meeting in January about the development, secondly, it’s nice to know Labour are fighting next years borough elections on issues the borough can do nothing about and finally, the outright lie is in brackets. No master plan? ta da! file:///C:/Users/user/Downloads/Wolsey%20Grange%20Master%20Plan%2014052015.pdf
