Here’s a post we published a couple of days ago which revealed what the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of Waverley’s Joint Planning Committee REALLY think about another part of our borough! One councillor from Hindhead – another from Farnham! Hey, Ho, where did localism go? Certainly not to Ewhurst! Our video of the offensive remarks was removed, but not until many of you had seen it!
Ewhurst is another part of the borough where ‘YW’ and a Government Inspector, intend to help the Cash and Clout brigade to cover the countryside in concrete!
The original streaming video has now been taken off U-tube and tidied up by the IT guys, who cannot produce a decent webcast however hard they try!
Well, just in case you missed it, here is just part of it below! Sadly, we couldn’t get the whole conversation on video but we do have it on our telephones! And, if this is removed again, we will not hesitate to use it!
So next time Councillor Isherwood, when you feel like laughing and rubbishing the very genuine concerns of the residents of Ewhurst for speaking up for their village, act responsibly! And, Councillor Cockburn before telling them to buy some shutters to block out offending development and making other derogatory remarks, turn your bl**dy microphones off! And…
Perhaps Councillor Cockburn, it is you, and your colleague, who should take advantage of that councillors’ training programme offered to you by CPO ‘Bess the Biz, or Betty the Business! Because you need to do your homework. The village you describe as: “after all we’re not talking about exquisite pretty English villages here are we,” and “there’s an awful lot of rubbish there” Ewhurst, has won the Best Kept Village title on more than one occasion and is good enough for such world-renowned stars as Eric Clapton and Kenney Jones to call it home!
Cranleigh too is/was, pretty proud of its very attractive village status, and which you snidely describe as not having much ‘architectural merit.’ Dare we suggest that even those, who, in times past were among the most respected, reasonable, and fair-minded people, once institutionalised by Waverley towers, become self-righteous bores when they are long past their SBD!
SHAME ON YOU for treating Cranleigh and Ewhurst with such contempt! Do the decent thing and either resign or apologise for your insulting and damning behaviour. Now we all know, right across the borough, what you really think about the East – wonder what you REALLY feel about the west?
