The future of the Upper Orwell Crossing has rapidly become the first major flashpoint of the new political dynamic in Ipswich since the election of Sandy Martin as MP two weeks ago.

It feels as if the world has been rather stood on its head over the last seven days, following the indecisive result in the 2017 General Election, writes Paul Geater.

Just 48 hours ago he was one of the most powerful men in the British government. Now Ben Gummer’s parliamentary career has come to an abrupt end – whether temporarily or permanently. Why did he lose?

I do like the drama you get on general election nights, so I’ve been looking forward to tonight’s results for the last few weeks.

This week we have seen a flurry of television debates among the main parties as we approached the last seven days of the general election campaign.

When Lord Stuart Rose described the Cornhill as “depressing” at the Beacon Town conference nearly five years ago there was a sharp intake of breath in the Corn Exchange – but deep down almost all of us there knew he was right.

After last week’s horrendous events in Manchester, the election campaign is now back at the top of the news agenda – but it would be naive to believe that the bombing is not going to affect anything.

The events of the last few days have shocked the nation and made all of us realise that however important politics are, events can be so terrible that “normal life” pales into insignificance.
