The latest ludicrous, damaging, insane policy brought about by Ellesmere Logic is the spending of £22 million on a retail park outside the borough. This is a case of Ellesmere Logic because Ellesmere Logic stipulates that private ownership is evil, so if the council has a stake in anything, that thing is less evil. Investing in a competor of Ipswich Town Centre is a good idea according to Ellesmere Logic because it can help Ipswich Labour turn Ipswich into a run down ruinous mess to make people more inclined to vote Labour. Ipswich Labour are prepared to stab the town centre in the back with a vote of no confidence because such a move would discourage investment in Ipswich and Ellesmere Logic states that encouraging investment in Ipswich is bad because it could lead to prosperity which would make people more inclined to vote Conservative.
Labour councillors are saying that the profits will pay for lots of stuff. so much stuff infact, it sounds like they’re planning on spending the profit at least half a dozen times. This will not stop Ellesmere’s administration putting up council tax next year because Ellesmere Logic stipulates that Ipswich people have the memory of goldfishes.
Ipswich Labour like buying things because being socialists, they like spending other people’s money. The former Post Office on the Corn Hill and the former Zest night Club are two things that Ellesmere have spent council tax payers money on and both properties remain empty. While they are empty money is being spent on insurance and security of the premisises. This is of no concern because Ellesmere Logic goes along the lines that the more they own the bigger the borough Council is and so he can indulge in delusions of granduer believing to be in charge of a big council that deals with big things rather than just being the politburo general secretary of a council primarily dealing in dog mess and wheelie bins. If confronted about the ludicrous, damaging policy of buying up assets, the response is that they are doing it to invest in public services. They mean cleaning up dog mess and emptying wheelie bins and not education and social care because Ellesmere Logic stipulates that nobody understands what councils do what things and so they can confuse them at election time by slagging off other people’s policies.
Ipswich Labour are also trying to claim credit for Destination Norwich Road. They are doing this, based on the idea that people are not aware that they are absolutely clueless when it comes to economic development. The economic policies are based on Ellesmere Logic, which stipulates that free enterprise is bad and therefore must be discouraged.
They are absolutely livid about the Conservative Government cutting business rates for small independants. But they consider investing in retail parks full of national chains to be not so bad. Concerning discouraging retailers into the town centre Ellesmere Logic has a confuddling, dichotomous nature. Primarily they don’t want anybody to invest in Ipswich because it would be detriment to the policy of turning the County Town of Suffolk into a run down ruinous mess. So this leads to lots of policies that damage the way that Ipswich is percieved. One of which is investing in a retail park outside the borough. The other side of the dichotimy stipulates that to make a town centre vibrant only national chains should be encouraged into the town centre. This is because according to Ellesmere Logic, national chains are good because small independant businesses find it hard to compete with them. Therefore national chains stiffle free enterprise and Labour hate free enterprise, so they are strangely enamoured by big business as a result. Further to this Ellesmere Logic starts to get very confusing. One of the reasons Labour hate small independant businesses so much is because the profits they make tend to stay in the local economy and according to Ellesmere Logic it is better for profits to end up in the Cayman Islands. This is very confusing because to socailists like David Ellesmere, offshore accounts are the most evil thing there is. So to turn somewhere into a run down ruinous mess, policies to crush free enterprise are followed to encourage sometihng they consider a greater evil. This is because Ellesmere logic is the logic of socialism, which is an unworkable ideology of squit filled dogmatism.
