Hodge the Bodge won’t budge!

Of course David Hodge has survived a Vote of No Confidence Motion- but then, why wouldn’t he?


Tory controlled Surrey County Council has passed  a motion of confidence in their Leader David Hodge despite his very public row with the Government that brought assurances that it “DID NOT” Do any “Secret Deal” with ‘Your Surrey’ County Council to head  off a 15% council tax increase.

Despite Prime Minister Theresa May’s  insistence that there was NO ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ between David Hodge and the Government  and… despite the fact that Surrey’s Budget is now unravelling at the seams – all the Tory Tossers lined up behind their leader to enable him to hang onto Surrey’s reins and gallop towards, possibly  – Beechers Brook,  perhaps?

By 47 votes to eight  – all those sycophants – including all our Waverley Councillors – The Farnham Gal,  the Eastern Villages –  Alan AKA, (‘I’ve just been dropped’) Young,  and his wife the Queen Vic, – Farnham’s Riot Ramsdale & Farnham’s very own –  Touch of Frost, Peter Martin, David Harmer and Steve Cosser were among those who  ensured Hodge the Bodge was not ousted from  his very  hot seat … well at least not for the time being?

“Secret recordings” made by one of his ‘colleagues’ and sent to the BBC caused a furore, but  Hodge is sticking to his guns in the ‘Truth, Dare, Promise or Opinion’ board game now being played out between him and the  Government.

That threat of a Referendum might even have been a good ruse if he could have pulled it off!   But will Surrey taxpayers be the ones clutching  the mucky end of the stick he has now provided his Tory masters to  beat us with?

The Prime Minister visibly squirmed when she said: ‘No deal has been made with Surrey that has not been made available to other councils’ so to extract themselves from the mucky brown stuff we can see a different “deal/gentleman’s agreement/stitch up, being worked up in the darkest corners of Government to keep the local elections on track.”  

After all – this little debacle won’t damage the reputation of Surrey Council or the  Government,  because  Surrey’s   voting fodder will be out in their droves in a few weeks time to ensure we get more of the same – despite  someone  being economical with the truth? 

After all – the Tory Tossers are supremely confident that when the  Elections take place on  May 4th the results will reveal the voter’s verdict on this unedifying spectacle!

But if you would like to hear  on Radio 4 how ‘Your Surrey’ has already lost £1.1  million  running its property company so far – listen here. 

Oh! and by the way Farnham followers – Le Gal won’t be among those seeking re-election – she’s  had an uplift – to scramble up that other TT’s  greasy power pole!  – The next step for an ambitious  career politician up from – Borough to  County…  onto the pinnacle of success she has striven for – Parliament. Bye-bye Farnham hello ?? – please let it be Blackpool !!
