Politics in the UK is starting to feel increasingly “normal” as political gaffes and infighting within parties start to feature more and more in the life of the country.

I’ve never disguised the fact that I feel that the proposed Sizewell C power station would be a disaster for East Suffolk and would effectively destroy the most important part of the county’s Heritage Coast.

I should be preparing to go on holiday today – we were supposed to be heading off for a week in Devon tomorrow but the coronavirus got in the way and instead we’re having a forced staycation, writes Paul Geater.

The re-opening of town centres this week appears to have gone very well in both Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds – and some of the smaller towns in the area have also been seeing shoppers return.

As a middle-aged, middle-class, white man, it is perhaps presumptuous for me to offer any kind of opinion on the state of race relations after the Black Lives Matter protests of the weekend.

Many people have long since given up on the idea of MPs setting any kind of good example to the country, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by the comedy scenes we saw this week of them queuing up to disenfranchise MPs who are ill and find new ways of spreading Covid-19 among themselves.

Dominic Cummings is an arrogant, out-of-touch fool who should have apologised to the country and handed in his resignation to the Prime Minister by 10am on Saturday morning.

Over the last week or so, something has definitely shifted in the national approach to coronavirus, life, and the determination to look beyond the current crisis towards whatever we are going to eventually come to accept as the “new normal.”
