IMITATION IS THE SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY.
No doubt it is painful. Very painful, for the South West Surrey Conservative Association to have lost the powerful hold it once held over the borough of Waverley.
The pain must be particularly excruciating and hard to bare over here in Farnham. Where the Tories managed to retain just one seat – the remainder captured by liberal Democrats and Farnham Residents (FRG). Even then the sitting Tory was not opposed.
The Farnham Residents’ Association was determined to release the iron grip of a group of pale, and stale Tories – well past their sell-by date. The FRG is now part of the Rainbow Coalition running ‘Your Waverley.’
But no they were just taking a leaf out of the Government’s school book! We want to trust our politicians – don’t we?
You won’t believe this.
The Government has launched a new website to imitate schoolcuts.org.uk.
But the Department of Education’s website fails to show parents the real picture. School funding cuts continue to shortchange children across the country.
You already know the numbers:
1. Schools don’t have what they need to run their core budgets — 83% of schools in England still lose out this year compared to 2015.
2. Nursery schools are on the brink of closure — Without a funding increase that covers their increased costs, 389 nursery schools are facing cuts or closure next year.
3. Children with SEND are being left out — Over 2,700 children with special educational needs are still waiting for a school place.
Despite the Government’s claims to level up school funding, we know headteachers don’t have money in the bank to run their schools right now.
Help parents and teachers uncover the truth by sharing schoolcuts.org.uk:
