It really is quite extraordinary that with a population of over 300 hundred million people the USA can only dredge up two totally unsuitable people to compete for the Presidency?
Similarly, strange that with a population of 12/13,000 in the East of “Your Waverley” the local Conservative Group is seriously considering co-opting a former Parish and county councillor to fill a vacancy within its ranks at Cranleigh Parish Council, perhaps even to “Your Waverley.”
Want to read more about Dr Andrew Povey – former Leader of Surrey County Council whose colleagues ganged up on, took a vote of no confidence in, and now predicted to be Cranleigh’s Parish Council’s comeback kid?
Really makes you wonder doesn’t it? This is the man who introduced Politics with a great big capital P into the village council chamber over 20 years ago, abandoned it for his race up Surrey County Council’s greasy pole, reaching the top only to slide down it faster than Usain Bolt! Now he wants take over the reins of the late Brian Ellis.
Councillor Ellis who resigned earlier this year, was described as a “local legend” when he died recently. Great to see yet another local legend tipped to take his place?
