There we all were the cynical Souls that we have become on the Waverley Web – thinking that Waverley residents had gone into a deep and dreamless sleep, along with most of the rest of our borough!
We actually believed that the first Battle of Waverley’ would break out in sleepy Cranleigh – better known at Waverley Towers as – ‘Poor old Cranleigh’ as it struggles to keep its head above concrete.
Then to everyone’s surprise, surprise, it’s finally happened, – in leafy True Blue Haslemere. Where, three of its new boys on the block have resigned because of the political ploys of their ‘Tory Tosser’ masters – who have told them – ‘You do it Our Way.’
Of course most of us realise that the Tory old guard, on every rung of the political ladder – from parish to borough to county and central Government have a hold, so tight, that they are strangling the life out of our market towns and our rural communities.
Here at the Waverley Web we wrote about it just a few weeks ago – read it here: We’re thinking, that you’re thinking what we’ve been thinking about local poltics!
Fed up Haslemere Councillor and former leader of ‘Your Waverley,’ mainly responsible for the fine mess that outfit is now in – stood up recently and complained about Haslemere’s rocketing car park charges – and the withdrawal of its green waste collection.
Councillor Robert – Know – less – argued, his town would be “better off if we moved into East Hampshire or West Sussex” for all the benefit it received from being a part of ‘Your Waverley.’ Ye – Gods hypocrisy or what – he’s running a very close second to Bramley’s By-Pass Byham. In Fact his nickname of the Surrey Police’s very own – ‘Olympic Torch’ – because he never went out at night, – might result in him giving BPB a race to WW’s Hypocrite of the Year award. ………………..
SO IS THE ROT WE HAVE BEEN PREDICTING SETTING IN AT LAST – IS A SEA CHANGE OF DIRECTION STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM UP?
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE THEY WILL WAKE UP OVER THERE IN THE EAST NEXT?
