You wouldn’t Adam and Eve it – would you? Since we published this post the accounts have been taken down!
WW is not about giving people advice, but in this particular instance it is breaking the habit of a lifetime – well perhaps only 10 months!
To, that heroic Milford couple who have been banging their heads against a brick wall hoping, expecting, anticipating, dreaming, of the day … when …
“Your Waverley” would do a thorough, honest, transparent investigation, and then, do the decent thing and … admit they got it wrong and apologise to the public for covering up a serious FRAUD that cost us ratepayers a lot of money! A fraud perpetrated by a Birmingham chancer who tried the same ruse on the BBC and numerous other organisations but failed, because they had proper processes in place to prevent it!
JUST FORGET IT!
and then … – do what the Farnham Residents have done and…
IF YOU CAN’T BEAT THEM .. JOIN THEM.
And … you know what Mr Egan … please, and with the greatest respect, because we are in total awe of your spirit, your dogged determination, tenacity and the succinct and patient way you have made your complaints, over more than a year to no avail. So please don’t waste any more of your valuable breath, because breath is so good for you. Because, you will be fobbed off, just like everyone else who makes a complaint against “Your Waverley.”
Complaints continue to rocket as more and more people are determined to take them task. But to get your voice heard there is only one way – through the ballot box!
GET YOURSELF ELECTED – GET ON THE INSIDE AND THEN YOU COULD ATTEMPT TO HELP SOME OF THE BLIND BUNCH OF OFFICERS AND COUNCILLORS IN DIRE NEED OF SOME CHECKS AND BALANCES FROM A CREDIBLE OPPOSITION. SOMETHING THIS COUNCIL HAS BEEN LACKING FOR FAR TOOOOOOOOO LONG!
Because those 19 councillors complicit in covering up a serious fraud on their watch, are blind to their own incompetency, blind to their complete disregard for the public they are elected to serve. Blind to their mistakes and how they are perceived by the man in “Your Waverley’s” streets, who is beginning to wake up.
They turn a blind eye to senior officers’ use of the Legal System’s Sub Judice rules as an excuse to ensure that the 2015 local council elections did not tarnish the Conservative Party. It took a council whistleblower to out them of that fraud in The Surrey Advertiser. Only 19 councillors and a handful of officers knew. th remainder, including the tiny opposition of Diane James and her UKIP colleagues were treated like mushrooms. Kept In the dark, and showered in manure.
So come on Milford. people. Vote in a decent local resident so we get the governance we deserve, we think Mr and Mrs Egan may fit the bill, after all they’ve been watching Waverley long enough from the outside. Let them in to shine a light on “Your Waverley.”
Here’s the Egan’s latest missive to two great local papers. Will it embarrass “Your Waverley?” Will it persuade it to treat residents in an honest, respectful and straightforward manner? No way Jose! Pick up your cheque and walk Chief Ex “WenhamIleaving.” Or apologies to the public, after all we all make mistakes, we would all respect you for it.
THIS IS BRIAN EGAN’S LETTER TO THE NEWSPAPERS
THIS IS HIS LETTER TO ‘YOUR WAVERLEY.’
You are all aware, at least since October 2015 that Waverley BC was the victim of an attempted fraud of around £350,000. You are probably not aware that the work practices and safeguards that the Council should have had in place to protect us from this fraud taking place were not and because those responsible for making sure of the protection were ashamed of their omissions they concocted one of the most incompetent institutional corporate cover ups that this Borough has ever experienced. Those officers responsible for this cock up, or who colluded with the cover up, must be dismissed without pension, they are: Paul Wenham, Graeme Clark, Damian Roberts, Robin Taylor and Daniel Bainbridge. The 19 Members of the Executive and Audit Committee have various levels of culpability but those who were most verbal in the defence of the cover up were: Robert Knowles, Julia Potts, Mike Band and Jim Edwards and they must be impeached. The 19 Councillors, although they had nothing to do with the incompetent mismanagement that resulted in the fraud, agreed to collude in the cover up because they feared that they may be under a political disadvantage at the Borough Council elections on 7th May 2015. I have asked Robin Pellow to investigate, with a view to interviewing the 19 Members, to assess their individual culpability.
The evidence for my allegations can clearly be read in the enclosed documents which were generated as arguments for a request to Grant Thornton for a Public Interest Report. The documents were written by Hugo Alexander dated 25th April, by myself dated 26th April and by my wife Rosaleen on 28th April, all of which should help you to come to your own conclusion regarding this corrupt episode.
Whatever you decide, something must be done to halt this creeping paralysis of Waverley’s administration. It would of course be far better for all of us if you, as Members, deal with the problem rather than to have Government Inspectors installed.
What has happened should not be political even if so far it has been treated as such. It is up to every honest Councillor to act on his or her own conscience in this matter as this is something that is extremely urgent and must be properly dealt with by those that have the power to do so. You have the power to do so.
The polite response in several paragraphs from WBC – was, in a nutshell, – shove off!
