Yesterday was the business hustings at Dance East. Because the Conservatives support business, lot’s of members of the Ipswich Conservative association were there. There was also lots of Ipswich Lib Dem members because that kind of things is their idea of a good night out. But the only member of Ipswich Labour present was their candidate.
Jeremy Corbyn’s candidate got a few laughs when he said that Labour were not the Party of benefits. He also informed those present that Labour would help small businesses by making them pay everybody at least £10 an hour. How that would help businesses is anyone’s guess.
To the Labour Party, running your own business is as anathema as owning your own house.
