In this season of goodwill should our gift to Waverley Borough Council be one, OR PERHAPS all, of the following:
On the first day of Christmas. Could there be a new Chief Executive Officer who could help that partridge in a pear tree by dealing with Farnham’s AIR QUALITY!
On the second day of Christmas. Perhaps not exactly two turtle doves – but definitely two old Farnham birds that could seriously consider whether the time had arrived to step down in favour of some fresh, new Independent or Farnham Residents’ members in readiness for the next election?
On the third day of Christmas: The three French/Elstead and Cranleigh Hens – all past their SBD, could follow their Farnham colleagues example?
On the fourth day of Christmas: The Four calling birds … Calling? Calling? Calling for what? Change? That’s what the borough needs CHANGE! Change for the good, after all, no point keeping change for parking, it’s all automated … unless, of course, you’re wheelchair bound … so how about changing the parking meters as it’s the season of good will and all that …
On the fifth day of Christmas: Five Gold Rings – now wouldn’t it be nice if Waverley answered their phones within five rings instead of 50? OK, we admit it, that was cruel to the Waverley receptionists but we are working to a tight script here!
On the sixth day of Christmas: Six geese a laying refers to the gang of six members of the Joint Planning Committee who persistently stick their mits in the air, regardless of good planning reasons to refuse applications which will harm many communities in the years ahead.
On the seventh day of Christmas: The six above – are joined by the seventh swan who chairs the JPC, and will have half the borough’s swans a-swimming before the end of the decade!
On the eighth day of Christmas: Eight maids a milking the council for everything they can get in members’ allowances, without actually turning up, most of the time!
On the ninth and tenth days of Christmas: Its ladies dancing and its lords a- leaping at the possible news that the Daft local Plan – has been adopted?
On the Eleventh day of Christmas: Eleven Pipers piping when The Flying Scotsman finally gets the go-ahead to build a new village on the borough’s largest brownfield site at Dunsfold aerodrome. Or was that flying pigs we just saw flapping past the Waverley window ?
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas: …
TWELVE DRUMMERS COULD BE A’ DRUMMING. WHEN THE SELLER AT E-BAY FINALLY GIVES A COMPLETE REFUND FOR THE DUFF WEBCASTING SYSTEM THAT HAS ENSURED ‘YW’S CORPORATE MESSAGE FOR OPENNESS, TRANSPARENCY … ACTUALLY MEANS WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN! Odd how the breaks in transmission occur at the most controversial moments!
Ho-Ho-Ho. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, tra-la-la-la-la
Yes that was hysterical laughter you heard emanating from the Waverley Web’s editor as yet another wonderful year in the life of Waverley waivers to a close.
Pity there isn’t a13th Day of Christmas which would be called – 13 heads’a’rolling, when the planning department is taken over by the men in grey suits!!
