Cool it boys and girls and play nicely?
This is a message that Waverley Borough Council Deputy leader Paul Follows posted on his Facebook page earlier this week.
Here at the Waverley Web, we too have had a few very unpleasant remarks made about the Parliamentary Candidate standing in the South West Surrey constituency against Jeremy Hunt. Thankfully, we can remove them before they go into the comments box, and sometimes, after. However, some keyboard warriors appear to think they can insult at will.
Some people seem to believe that the Conservatives have some sort of given right to hold both the SW Surrey and the Guildford & Cranleigh seats in Parliament – and that the voting fodder is just that, fodder. Residents to be wooed every few years and then dropped once they start to concentrate on the bigger picture and secure a seat at Westminster.
What the residents of Waverley would like to see is a little more emphasis on local issues.
