Guildford & villages MP Angie Richardson has never been accused of being a shrinking violet and shying away from a good picture opportunity.
You can see from the picture below who was concentrating on the flood issues which have dogged the town of Cranleigh for more years than residents care to remember, and who was concentrating on the bigger issue – smiling for the camera and her ever-present PR.
Needless to say, Waverley & Surrey County Councillor Liz Townsend, who has battled tirelessly for years to rid Cranleigh of the scourge of flooding, and burst pipe issues with the statutory authorities, looks decidedly unimpressed. Perhaps even angry?
Why? Because the meeting was hijacked by Angie’s PR stunt?
Or that the Flood Forum held in public, when chaired so successfully by former MP Anne Milton since its inception, was attended by a huge crowd of villagers is now held in private for a chosen few?
