New infrastructure projects seem to be the order of the day for councils and MPs in Suffolk and Essex at the moment - hopefully the current rash of pleas for support won't fall on deaf ears in government.

I'm well aware this is a confession that some people will find strange - but not surprising if they've ever met me or read my articles. I like travelling by train.

It was very disappointing if, in retrospect, not entirely surprising that Suffolk missed out on any of the £675m allocated by the government for high street regeneration this week.

One of the features we've seen in British politics over the last few years is the rise of the "character" politician - and boy, are we seeing the effect of that now!

I don't want to make readers too jealous, but by the time you read this I could well be standing on the top of Snowdon with fantastic views over the whole of North Wales and stretching to the Isle of Man and even the Irish coast, writes Paul Geater.

Now we know that the first of the new fleet of trains to be introduced by Greater Anglia over the next 18 months to two years will come into service within the next few weeks.

The decision by the government to reject Suffolk County Council's plans for a Four Villages' Bypass was very disappointing for the communities concerned - but really should have come as no surprise to anybody.

The contest for the leadership of the Conservative Party has become a tiny bit clearer as MPs return to Westminster after their Whitsun Recess following James Cleverly's sensible decision not to stand - but it still looks like something of a mess.
