  6. Elmer's HQ: Difficult to access for wheelchair users
    Ipswich Borough Council's poor attitude to disabilities continue! First, hundreds of years of step free access to the Cornhill was hindered with adding in steps, and now it appears "Elmer HQ" is located within the non-accessible (stepped area) of the Town Hall. On closer inspection, it appears said room maybe accessible to wheelchair users and other limited mobility users, however, if it isn't easy and obvious, then there is a problem! For instance, there is an accessible toilet sign within the Town Hall Tea Room.

  12. Suffolk takes no pride in Suffolk Pride 2019
    So if you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, queer or of one of the associated bolt-ons within LGBTQ+ circles, you are being afforded the right to walk from a car park as a meeting point (officially from Dance East), all the way to Cult Cafe. This is half a mile. Non-LGBTQ+ persons (or those within the community that don't want to march) can come down to observe a group of people walking half a mile, away from any hive of activity. This is Suffolk Pride 2019 (there wasn't one the previous year).

  14. POPULAR:Cornhill event programme lacks ambition
    Without a doubt Ipswich residents and a handful of visitors will love the new £100,000 programme of events on the Cornhill, and this will highlight how vibrant the older Cornhill could have been if events were planned more frequent. The big question mark over why entertainment was banned on the Cornhill by the Labour administration and demoted to Giles Circus (or spots in Westgate Street and Tavern Street respectfully), still remains, and the cover-up of the £3. 6m waste of taxpayers money with these events really forced the binary option question.

  18. POPULAR:Ipswich Buses: Passengers harassed and assaulted aboard buses
    Starting to get numerous cases coming through where Ipswich Buses allowing individuals on their bus that either verbally abuse or assault passengers. Difficult to validate claims made of course without seeing CCTV footage but the following claim is undertaken by someone that has publicly made a long post available on Facebook along with their name and photo. In this specific case, the offensive passenger was under the influence of alcohol, possibly drugs, and was in an aggressive mood with an abusive attitude.

Both Sat 20 April 2019 at the same time 12:58 from Tower Ramparts bus station. Consecutive ticket numbers 113639 £1.
  20. Ipswich Buses: buggies blocking entrance, gangway and emergency exit
    Absolute madness. How is anyone going to get on or off with a buggy blocking the gangway? This isn't a most recent example of the lack of common sense and disregard for passengers' health and safety, but it is a notable example and thus is documented here for completeness. Childs faces blurred here compared to the original facebook one. .
  21. Ipswich Buses: Missing out buses again?
    Are Ipswich Buses Limited in financial troubles still? Despite a Rod Stewart concert that evening, Ipswich Buses allegedly failed to operate the 22:47 and 23:15 Service 13 buses. The last route sponsored by Ipswich Borough Council. This resulted in at least a couple waiting 50 minutes for the bus, opting for another bus (Service 12) which doesn't go where they want it to and walking the other 2 miles home in the rain. They were soaked.
  22. POPULAR:Change UK's EU election failure: Why no by-elections?
    Labour MPs Chuka Umunna, Luciana Berger, Mike Gapes, Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Ann Coffey, Gavin Shuker and Joan Ryan, along with Conservative MPs Anna Soubry, Heidi Allen and Sarah Wollaston were elected on party manifestos but got bored of their political parties so left to join the "Independent Group". They crowdfunded and had support from Gemini A Ltd; circumventing strict political party funding rules. This later rolled into a political party called "Change UK" without a by-election.
  23. "Ipswich, getting it wrong since AD 600"
    Interesting comment I stumbled across on Flickr. A quote of the comment is as follows. "I was born and grew up in Ipswich, but it is not a town I think well of - it seems intent on putting itself down at every opportunity - as future pictures will show. " Which is a distinct difference from those people that feel critical people are to blame putting it down, rather than governance "getting it wrong"!
  24. Anyone with a drone or gimbal for aerial and eye-level photography?

  25. POPULAR:Ipswich Buses: Leaving early so the bus driver can smoke in a later bus stop lay-by
    Ipswich Buses seem not to have any control over their drivers. Someone has complained on Twitter about a nighttime bus driver deliberately leaving bus stops early so he can have a cigarette break at a bus stop layby at the next fare stage. The allegation is the bus driver arrived 6 minutes early to the bus stop - there is no excuse to be early and various layby exists before then to make up time - and apparently smoking just outside the bus with the doors open. The ticket machines linked to the driver tracks position and time. CCTV would show the reason for racing to the next fare stage.
  26. POPULAR:Ipswich Buses: Another councillor rant over poor bus services
    Labour Westgate Ward councillor living in Chantry. Colin Kreidewolf, has yet again resorted to Twitter to complain about the poor service offered by Ipswich Buses. It appears he may have been waiting in Museum Street with buses still diverted away. Following a further tweet from the ibserviceupdate account, he later deleted these tweets. .
  27. POPULAR:Ugly CornHenge is a national embarrassment for Ipswich
    A national newspaper has picked up on Ipswich Vision's failed Cornhill Project highlighting the £45k monoliths which it calls "Britain's worst sculpture" highlighting the fatality and in a day has been shared 2300+ times and gained 161 comments and growing. Ipswich doesn't need this sort of bad publicity. There is hope for Archant Suffolk's Ipswich Star. the monoliths (in my opinion) are neither a sculpture, statue or plinth! Worst of all the Daily Mail loves adding hundreds of photos to its articles.

  34. Ipswich Society: Still an unofficial Ipswich Vision member
    A really interesting one. With news on replacement monoliths that won't have the plaques after thought but go back to the original design of names on the actual monoliths themselves, which must have had a lot of Ipswich Society involvement behind the scenes, they have managed to declare the Cornhill Revamp a success. Like Ipswich Vision and its partners, weasel words come out. Apparently "most people" have been "very positive" despite no survey undertaken to determine this. I don't like the new Cornhill,in fact I hate it with a passion.

Would it not have been sensible for a new political party "The Remain Party" as a political alliance solely for this EU election so a tally could be created of who were voting for Brexit (No Deal, Hard, Soft etc. ) or Remain?

  91. POPULAR:Ipswich Buses: General Manager's 93% profit fall at former employer
    The new General Manager (effectively a deputy MD) at Ipswich Buses, managed to take a profitable business of some £396,035 and just a year later the profits fell 93% to just £25,006! Before the company GHA Coaches Ltd fell into administration a year later. I wonder if this sort of approach will help Ipswich Buses. and whether the failure of this business was the reason the General Manager was appointed?
