We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. In fact we here at the Waverley Web have been banging on for months about the way ‘YOUR WAVERLEY’ IS ATTEMPTING TO GAG ITS ‘OFFICIAL OPPOSITION.’
The WW WON’T CALL THE MAN “JEZ HYMAN” AS REFERRED TO IN THIS LETTER TO THE FARNHAM HERALD BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW HIM . SO REFER TO HIM BY HIS WAVERLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL TITLE … COUNCILLOR JERRY HYMAN.
As this letter claims – Waverley Council doesn’t do Debate. The echo chamber at Waverley Towers only tolerates unanimous and pre-determined decisions. However, recently there have been a few murmurs of opposition in the Waverley Wilderness. Some have dared question/examine/scrutinise recommendations – as with the Daft Local Plan, The Daft Culture Strategy, The Voluntary Sector Grants – a few Crass Planning decisions. But… their arms remain glued to their sides when it comes to actually voting against their masters voice.
The Chorus of Clones that is “Your Waverley” reveal lemmings running towards the cliff edge…
Only those who manage to remain awake of course!
Debate? – There is no such thing as debate – that has Gone to Potts – no such thing as scrutiny ask Aunty Elsey? If those councillors supposedly representing the people of Farnham say, “the majority of residents there want the redevelopment of the Blightwells/East Street to go-ahead” then surely … it must be so?
Then .. suddenly the Wonersh dummy awakes from his slumbers long enough to defend the use of hundreds of thousands of pounds of public money to fight the pesky Farnham mob on the Waverley beaches! Read the article in larger format here: 16-11-03-farnham-residents-doing-vital-service
However, have you ever heard a Cranleigh councillors open their mouths. No? Wonder why?
Could it be that over there in the in the East they too are being stuffed by Crest Nicholson who ignore planning rules – and.. will no doubt get away with it… again.. and…
So as this correspondent says:
No Debate! the abolition of Informal Questions! Gags across the mouths of councillors and some officers. Though – thankfully we hear from a few brave officers eager to dob in their masters!
So keep it up Farnham Residents Group. Keep turning the spotlight into the dark and murky corners of “Your Waverley.” Ignore the huffing and puffing, grins and grimaces the minute you turn on your microphones. – Just sock it to em for all our sakes!
