Ben Gummer MP, Ipswich, On 12th Night.

with 2 comments

Ben Gummer MP and his Achievements.

‘Tis Twelfth Night, when I visit the sick, heal the lame and the halt, and distribute partridges from Daddy’s Estate to the Deserving.

Can I say what a privilege it has been to serve the people of wonderful Ipswich?

Folk with hearts of gold.

A town whose canal by Portman Road has more bellissimo than those of Venice!

A Waterfront that – with some help  (modesty forbids names) – rivals Nice!

2012 will be a great year for Ipswich.

With government policy support there will more and more opportunities for unpaid volunteers to help greater and greater numbers of  the homeless and dispossessed.

Can I now put a word in for my good friend the very virtuous ‘Kev’ . ?

He is standing in the Gippeswick Ward for the important  post of Town Inspector of Corn Hill Drains.

‘Kev’ and I have often prayed together.

Now more than ever.”

Ben Gummer MP,. is the Mayor Of Ipswich, Editor of the Evening Star, and Cabinet Secretary for Ipswich.

As part of the Dickens to Boost Ipswich Year he recently wrote and performed in his own version of the Old Curiosity Shop.

In a daring plot twist Ben (as Quilp) saves Little Nell on her death-bed.

  1. Ken who? What have you got against the Alderman Canal Andy? It’s clear at the moment and there’s not to much rubbish there at present. Have a go at the £250,000 runway they put at the top end of the canal because someone in Brissels wanted to waste some money by all means.
