It appears from her personal FB profile that Kirsty Walden the prospective Conservative candidate for Waverley’s Godalming Central and Ockford Ward is – so excited – because she is soon to start a 6-month secondment in Brussels.
Obviously, this could be a misunderstanding and she never meant to imply the relocation was to Brussels (perhaps the photo was posted in Brussels but shows their London office?) but surely if true, she should clarify to voters just how she intends to represent her ward from Belgium?
Perhaps she will be another one of Denise Le Gal’s CHINOS who she laughingly described as – “Councillors Here in Name only,” and of whom she is so proud? You can watch her here by clicking on the link below.
There are lies, damned lies and then there are Tory lies.
There have been several posts in the Godalming Community facebook Groups complaining about the spin the local Conservatives are putting in their propaganda, from single-handedly saving Green Oaks school to preventing building on the Greenbelt.
When this resident posted the latest missive from the Martin dynasty with some critical comments, a local Conservative Town Councillor Anne Gray reported the post for hate speech no less!!
They really don’t like any scrutiny, or criticism do they?!
This isn’t hate speech Ms Gray – it is called telling the truth because if you don’t someone else will tell it for you.
We know developers trying to flog off a glut of new homes in the Eastern villages are getting desperate but really! Not this desperate, surely?
Once upon a time, there was a big developer who was so desperate to sell his houses he told porky pies about their attributes.
One of our followers has forwarded us the screenshot below from Berkeley Homes’ current advertising propaganda for its latest development in Cranleigh on Knowle Lane.
09 minutes from Cranleigh to Guildford!!!
Are they having a laugh? Well, the residents of Cranleigh certainly are. As one guffawing local described it – when she could stop laughing – “Laugh? I nearly peed my pants when I read that! Everyone knows the new residents of Leighwood Fields will be lucky to get out of Knowle Lane in under 09 minutes, the traffic’s so bad! It’s a good 30 minutes to Guildford – and that’s on a good day, outside of peak hours, if the lights are all in your favour and there are no other unexpected hold-ups.”
Now we all know there’s an overabundance of development in Cranleigh and developers are throwing in their grannies as live-in nannies if it cinches a sale (known as the ‘Grab-a-Grannie-Giveaway) but 09 minutes to Guildford by car?!?!?! In what parallel universe are they living?
20 minutes from Gatwick and … wait for it, wait for it!
Oops, silly us, we didn’t realise they were throwing in helicopters along with the Grab-a-Grannie-Giveaway!
Meanwhile, back in the real world, would-be buyers would be well advised to do the commute for themselves, rather than accept, as a given, the spiel from some ignorant copy-writer who sat at their desk in Soho making it up as they went along after a quick glance at Google Earth.
A bottle of Champagne to the person who can do the journey in a road-going car, in normal traffic conditions, without breaking the speed limit, in 09 minutes!
