For the last couple of weeks Ipswich Labour ‘Blairite’ Alasdair Ross has been saying lots of stupid things on Twitter about the fact that Ben Gummer hasn’t got a registered address in Ipswich.
This is stupid because of a number of reasons. First of all, there is enough second home owners who live and work in London in Suffolk putting up house prices already. Does Alasdair Ross believe there is not a housing crisis or does he think that metropolitan types buying up properties around here so hard working, local people can’t get on the housing ladder is a good thing?
Another reason which is more important is the fact that Ben Gummer is now a member of the cabinet and as Ben is a cabinet member, his address would be of interest to Jeremy Corbyn’s terrorist friends.
