Is it a bird, is it bee, or is it a Zebra? No it’s our Elsey who can be relied upon to defend the indefensible rubbish that is “Your Waverley”s Daft Cultural Strategy.
There’s absolutely no doubting Aunty Elsey’s sartorial elegance – she could proudly take the catwalk at any fashion event …in a Safari Park! But we digress , she is pictured here defending the Draft Cultural Strategy, despite the fact that 78 pages of the expensive, time wasting gobbledygook have been removed! Oh! Elsey – you are awful! But we like your style!
Thanks to members of the Overview & Scrutiny Committee, many of whom thought the costly exercise was a pile of junk, (our words not theirs,) the Strategy devised to underpin the Daft Local Plan was sent back to the drawing board. But 56 pages still remain!
It certainly rattled the cage of By-Pass Bramley’s Byham because it didn’t mention that the village – you know, the one you cannot miss because it was plastered in yellow signs – until your Waverley sent in the Enforcement Officers and now only two or three die-hards continue with anti-Dunsfold protest!
But again we digress. Bypass Byhan is annoyed because no one thought to mention that Bramley has a Library. Durrhh! we all know they like to think of themselves as “Culture Buffs” as depicted in the DCS… and have been known to describe themselves as “the ‘Belgravia of Waverley’ Don’t they realise having an M&S Food or a Baby Waitrose is what it takes to have ‘arrived’; Budgens in the local garage doesn’t quite cut the mustard does it! Although cultured enough to know how to write and put up signs not that bright they didn’t check the law on fly-posting!
Describing the Strategy as “barmy” won Farnham Residents’ Councillor Jerry Hyman another load of friends, when he suggested – how dare he?! – that before adopting and endorsing so called strategy, perhaps a little more work, including the proposed workshops, should take place?
Wow! silly old Jerry! that was designed to ensure Elsey’s Efforts were immediately endorsed and given the seal of approval.
If you want to lose the will to live you can read all about it here: But this comes with a health warning – take a pill, or dare we suggest a wee dram … first, during and after?
