Surrey County Council is putting in another £15m to fill the county’s big black holes.

Councillor David Hodge is used to putting our money into big black holes – and guess what? He’s pictured above having just carried out another inspection and found another 32,000 of them in and around Surrey!

Council leader David Hodge announced yesterday that Surrey County Council is to add another £15m to the £5m already earmarked, to fill in potholes because another 32,000  that have recently been discovered.

Hodge the Bodge is blaming his Tory Tosser friends in the Government for not giving the council enough money to keep Surrey’s roads in good nick! Well, he would, wouldn’t he! It couldn’t possibly be anything to do with the lack of maintenance year on year. Neither could it be anything to do with teams of highway workers lobbing lumps of tarmac into Surrey’s holey roads, only for the material to come out again just days later. The tarmac sometimes lays like a missile waiting to do even more damage to vehicles as they swerve to avoid lumps of tarmac as they swerve around them narrowly missing the oncoming traffic.

Then, of course, there are the drains that are being filled in – by mistake! Read about it here: Oh dear! Did Surrey County Council Highways take us too literally?

And of course, there are all those divers who took up the latest dangerous sport of potholing with their aqualungs on their backs making them even worse like Bodgy Dave pictures above!

Poor old Surrey County Council – let’s all give them a raise in their council tax. Oops we already did, didn’t we?

But they re using £58m of “our money” from their depleted coffers to invest in another big black hole?  A retail development at East Street in Farnham. Funny that just as everyone else is baling out of retail, they jump in. They don’t call our Dave Hodge the Bodge for nothing, do they?

Come to Surrey and visit the UK’s capital of potholes – on and off-road!

Who says nobody listens to the Waverley Webbers.
