It’s going on all over the borough of Waverley – paper candidates who don’t give a damn whether they represent the voting fodder or not!
Our Bramley, Busbridge & Hascombe followers may have noticed that the Tory Tossers have parachuted Cranleigh digger-driver Stewart Stennett into Maurice (By-Pass) Byham’s old seat.
Eh? Yes, you may well wonder how a Cranleigh resident gets to stand in Bramley after the Cranleigh Con artists deselected him? Of course, it shouldn’t be allowed, but these are strange times for Waverley TT’s who are shuffling the has-beens into wanna be’s wherever they can hang their hat in the hope they will dupe the voting fodder and get away with it.
Stennett who, together with his wife Jeannette, were former Cranleigh and Waverley Parish Councillors. SS infamously stepped down just a year into the parish job, whilst continuing to represent the biggest village in England at Waverley Borough Council. Cranleigh residents were outraged at this lack of accountability on behalf of their alleged local representative. and demanded – to no avail – that he step down from Waverley Borough Council too and allow a Cranleigh Parish Councillor to take his place but the self-serving Stennett was having none of it. He had green belt of his own to develop! And lots of secret meetings with his developer chums to hold!
The mutter in the Cranleigh gutter was that the Stennett duo, was in part, responsible for the emerging ‘Cranleigh New Town’ status. By assisting their developer cronies by voting in favour of schemes put forward by their ‘besties’, the Lettuce King and his cohort Andy Cranleafy. Now known as Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust and A2-Dominion.
But, enough of looking back in anger.
The residents of Bramley need to look to the future and ask themselves if the village of Bramley – with a population of 3,359 according to the 2011 census – is really so bereft of talent that it has to look outside the environs of its own village in order to get bums on local government seats?
Come on you Bramley Babes!
You were quick enough to get off your delectable derrieres to fight the Dunsfold Developer and to ensure that Bargain Booze didn’t dare to lower the tone of the village by raising its bargain basement profile in your rarified environs by christening the old Nisa Bargain Booze when they took it over. Surely one or two of you could have spared enough time from gelishing your toenails to stand up for your village and be counted.
If you don’t stop navel gazing you’ll wake up the morning after the local May elections and find you’ve had the Cranleigh digger-driver foisted on you and there’s a reason he got that moniker – because he’s a big fan of concreting over the countryside even if its Green Belt – especially if it happens to belong to himself, his family or his cronies!
Wake up, Bramley, and smell the coffee … or do we mean the stench of local gerrymandering?
Your village needs you and you have just a few weeks to support your excellent Tory councillor Richard Seaborne who has served you well and vote in the Green Candidate Martin D’Arcy. Otherwise, you’ll be shafted, and so will your countryside, Don’t say we didn’t warn you …
