Has the East’s Surrey County Councillor been on the whacky baccy?

LET’S WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUT OF OUR HAIR AND SEND HIM ON HIS WAY!

When the BBC lunchtime news featured a clip mistakenly labelling the Leader of Surrey County Council, David Lodge, instead of  David Hodge, did they mean to say … Dis-Lodge or maybe they meant Dis-Loyal?

Because, judging from Cranleigh & Ewhurst Surrey County Councillor Andrew Povey’s latest tweet his campaign to oust the Leader is gathering momentum and, as we all know, there’s nothing good ever come out of Momentum (AKA the really nasty arm of the Labour Left)!

First, that poseur Povey tweets that the man at the helm of good ship Surrey has fallen asleep at the wheel! Then he compares our very own Surrey County Council with the bankrupt builder Carillion! Next, he goes off on one advising voters to be wary of supporting Independent candidates, claiming they could be Marxists or a member of a far-right group!

Does Cranleigh & Ewhurst really back this disgraced politician’s putrid views or are local residents so lethargic and switched off they simply don’t care who represents them? More likely, they have very short memories and, if that’s the case, we, at the Waverley Web, are going to take them on a much-needed trip down memory lane!

Back in the day, way back when in the era that Cranleigh & Ewhurst residents have clearly forgotten (we’re talking about September 2011 in case you’re wondering), the then Leader of Surrey County Council Dr Andrew Poseur announced he was standing down from his position having just sacked his deputy leader, David Hodge. Dr Poseur claimed he was stepping down in October 2009 in order to ‘develop his business interests’ and in a typical self-congratulatory speech went on to eulogise about the Council’s achievements under his leadership: I am proud of what the council has achieved during my leadership and firmly believe the authority is well placed to become a truly world-class organisation. I believe the foundations we have set in the past two years mean the council can now go on to even greater things and whoever takes over as the leader can look forward to my support as they continue this work.’

Huh? Who was he trying to kid?

Eber Kington, Surrey County Councillor for Epsom and Ewell North said at the time, ‘Mr Povey did not step down but has been kicked out amid a continuing lack of confidence and disagreements with deputy leader, David Hodge. The idea that he’s taken this time to look after his business is nonsense – he’s been kicked out. More than half of the Conservatives told him to go and it’s not for the first time. There was a vote of no confidence a couple of months back. Povey has been responsible for some of the most damaging and unpopular decisions of the Conservative administration …’

Has there ever been a more damning indictment?

And now, six years on, Dr Poseur’s crawled is busy making trouble for the man who took over from him – so much for giving ‘whoever takes over as leader … gets my support’! The Waverley Web is no fan of David Hodge but the idea that Dr Poseur should be resurrected to dance on Hodge’s grave is going from the sublime to the ridiculous.

We strongly recommend that the residents of Cranleigh & Ewhurst take a long, hard look at Dr Poseur’s record because no good whatsoever will come of their support – or for that matter their lethargy towards – this man who clearly has an axe to grind when it comes to David Hodge.

Our advice to Mistress Milton is that she steps in before Dr Andrew Poseur brings the local Tory party into even more disrepute than it is currently enjoying. Trouble is, the Tory Party doesn’t like to wash its dirty linen in public which means they leave it in the bottom of the laundry basket where it festers and – eventually – manages to walk out by itself!

So there you have it, Annie, you need to take a leaf out of Mary Martin’s book and WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUT OF YOUR HAIR! For all of our sakes, Anne you need to open your mouth and sing at the top of your voice:

I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
And send him on his way.

I’m gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
I’m gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
I’m gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
And send him on his way.

Don’t try to patch it up
Tear it up, tear it up!
Wash him out, dry him out,
Push him out, fly him out,
Cancel him and let him go!
Yea, sister!

I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
And send him on his way.

You can’t light a fire when the woods are wet,
No!
You can’t make a butterfly strong,
Hmm, hmm!
You can’t fix an egg when it ain’t quite good,
And you can’t fix a man when he’s wrong!
You can’t put back a petal when it falls from a flower,
Or sweeten up a fellow when he starts turnin’ sour
Oh no! Oh no!

If his eyes get dull and fishy,
When you look for glints and gleams,
Waste no time,
Make a switch,
Drop him in the nearest ditch!
Rub him out of the roll call,
And drum him out of your dreams
Oho! Oho!

I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
And sent him on his way.

She went to wash that man right outa our hair,
She went to wash that man right outa our hair,
She went to wash that man right outa our hair,
And send him on his way!

 

The Waverley Web puts up the WANTED sign and guess what? Up pops a Povey on the BBC!
