Waverley’s MP’s Angela Richardson & Jeremy Hunt have managed to get themselves pictured in National newspapers once again! The Tory duo are becoming past masters at ensuring they get maximum publicity for everything they do – or don’t do.
This week JH played the cancer card, alongside Angie in the pink.
The Waverley Web would love to know whether they were at the recent £2,000 per head Tory fundraiser? The very same FR bash which gave the wife of one of Putin’s Ministers the perfect opportunity to dump another shedload of cash into Tory coffers.
Surely, there cannot have been a Tory FR that Angela didn’t support? She and her wealthy husband have been pouring money into the Tory pit for as long as we Surrey Waitrose women have been shopping in the famous store.
Her fundraising in the Cranleigh/Guildford area is the stuff of which legends are made.
Funny old world isn’t it? All over the country, anyone with any minor dealings with Russians is being penalised, regardless, but in good old Tory territory, this time the V & A Museum Summer Party – Lubov Chernukhin can hand over £30,000 for an auction item.
The cash takes her donations to the Tory party to over £2m. The serial bidder for auction lots lost out to others eager to eat with Boris, Cameron and Theresa May. Better becquick one may be not around for lunch soon? Perhaps, £130,000 was a step too far, even for the wife of Vladimir Chernukhin’s former finance minister – chairman of a state-owned investment bank. No, we hear you cry, surely not?
Us, mere mortals struggling with the cost of living crisis which is upon us, wonder if all those tight-as-tick Tories paid £2,000 per head to rub shoulders with the Russians?
The Tory Party’s cash-for-access culture surely knows no bounds and all the pretty pictures of our MP’s posted on social media and in the press won’t make one jot of difference at the ballot box.
Our message to Angie and Jeremy – MIND THE GAP! Particularly in view of your recent records for voting with the Government on the Northern Ireland protocol. Breaking an agreement we negotiated and signed and you, our MPs, supported. Have our local politicians no shame?
