Anyone who was at last week's budget meeting of Suffolk County Council (or who has seen any of it on the authority's webcast) will have seen that things are getting a bit tetchy among some of the members of the ruling Conservative group.
Transport and environmental issues have been all over the news locally and nationally over the last week - and sometimes it's been incredibly difficult to work out the logic behind those who take positions on these issues.
There will be some who think I will be celebrating at the news that the Northern Route across Ipswich is set to be finally killed off by Suffolk County Council next month. I won't. I've always been a classic fence-sitter on the subject.
