Tory’s lose control of ‘Your Waverley.’
The residents of Waverley have burst the Tories pretty blue balloon – and many of them have flown away!
The once Tory stronghold is now a shadow of its former self. Polls reveal a Tory wipe-out in Farnham with all but one seat going to the Farnham Residents.’ The other to two Liberal Democrats…
with Carole Cockburn (left) the only Conservative!
Ye Gods, as Waverley’s head honcho returning officer – Tom Horwood – announced the election results here at The Edge Leisure Centre he had us all here at the Waverley Web swinging from our gossamer threads. The atmosphere was electric, as Tory grimaces turned to groans. Even a Touch of Frost began to melt into a puddle of pi**le as she realised her game was up in Farnham Moor Park, having lost her Surrey County Council seat last year to a Farnham Resident. Her running-mate Rashida Nasir was kicked out too by Farnham Residents. Michael Goodridge (Con) “Sleepy,” who probably dozed through it all, lives to sleep on another day. Mary Foryszewski in Cranleigh East will be accompanied by two Lib Dem colleagues when/if she becomes Mayor? Lib Dem husband of Ruth Reed – a former highly regarded borough councillor – failed narrowly to sit alongside his wife.
As we watched the Returning Officer burst the balloons of numerous Tory Tosser’s across the borough our arachnoid friends, looked more like glow-worms than spiders. Before she left in a hurry Mayor Denise Le-Gal looked as though she was awaiting root canal treatment as The Potty One comforted her. Bet Farnham’s Gal wished she had kept her gob shut and never smirked about absent Tory Councillors being CHINOS – ‘Councillors Here In Name only.’
We bet Poor old Potty was gld she had parachuted into Frensham, Dockenfield & Tilford and do as she promised? ” I need to concentrate on being Leader.’
The man of the match was undoubtedly Lib Dem Cllr Paul Follows who after only a year as a Cllr romped home with an outstanding vote of confidence and now has a colleague to serve the Godalming Central & Ockford Ward alongside him.
And, before they all start twittering, texting and posting that it’s all The Government’s fault let’s put the record straight.
Whilst almost to a man and woman, and all those in-between, whilst being totally pi**ed off with Theresa May and the Motley crew she would like to have in tow. MOST OF THE BLAME LIES AT THE LOCAL TORIES’ DOOR.
IT IS DOWN TO POOR PERFORMANCE, ARROGANCE AND AN INABILITY TO LISTEN TO YOUR VOTING FODDER. JUST LIKE THEIR TORY MASTERS AT WESTMINSTER.
Seats in Dunsfold and Shamley Green were uncontested – Two Tory’s returned – Kevin Deanus and Chris Howard uncontested and still in her blue wrapper.
We will publish the full list of results and voting figures.
Busbridge, Hascombe & Bramley.
