The above picture was taken on a Sunday when the Farncombe Post Office was closed. We applaud the gorilla tactics of our local residents in photocopying articles and pasting them up for all to see! Here at the Waverley Web, we feel it is our public duty to continue to spread the word!
They were highlighting both the issue of the NHS march on Saturday that was hardly reported, that happened whilst our MP and Health Secretary was snoozing at a Hampshire spa after a 2-hour massage.
Jeremy Hunt is also in the sights of the Farncombe community for doing nothing to intervene in the ‘Horizon’ dispute between Post Masters and the Post Office. This dispute has lead to the Post Office suspending the licence of hundreds of Post Masters, meaning the Farncombe Post Office – with its essential cashpoint – is out of action whilst it is resolved.
Farncombe residents are also disgusted at having to traipse into Godalming to queue out the door in their tiny new high street shop.
Come on Jeremy – Wake Up and pull your finger out! Because your donors and your members are leaving you in their droves!
There is so much ranting going on in ‘Your Waverley’ at present we have decided to have a separate section so you can rant away at your hearts content!
See the headings inside the Waverley Spider’s Web. Click on Rants. If you want to rant – just let us know. Here’s one we received a while back.
We even extend an open invitation to those poor old Waverley Councillors who are bitterly complaining that they that they were not even warned, or informed that a new Managing Director had been appointed, until after they read it here on the Waverley Web! Tail wagging that Waverley Dog again?
Not content with weighing the vote as usual in South West Surrey, Jeremy Hunt seemed a little ungracious in his speech at the count. He went out of his way to attack his nearest rival Dr Louise Irvine for ‘peddling falsehoods’. The Farnham Herald reported Dr Louise as “visibly shaken”. Now most people will have missed this little spat, as it took place at 4am. Here’s a video we tracked down:
Dr Louise Irvine hits back at Jeremy Hunt in this blog post, saying:
“On Thursday night, in your acceptance speech, you accused me of “falsehoods”.
In your words, you accuse me of lying about “both our record with the NHS and also our motives”. You were clearly rattled that over 12,000 people in South West Surrey showed their concern for the NHS and voted for someone who questioned your record, but that is what democracy is all about – holding the government to account.
The truth is that I haven’t lied for the simple reason that I haven’t needed to. The facts speak for themselves.”
Dr Louise goes on to list many of Jeremy Hunt’s factual failings with the NHS. So who do you believe – an unqualified politician, or an actual frontline doctor?
And there we were at The Waverley Web thinking that it was the East’s very own whip cracking girl, Meddling Matron Milton that called in a favour to have the Dunsfold Park planning application called in by the Secretary of State!
And all the time she was being aided and abetted by The West’s very own Grinning Golden Balls!
These two really must be congratulated – no wonder developers are filling their coffers with dosh! We heard recently from one follower who personally delivered a big fat cheque to one of them on behalf of a wannabe developer! Now, they have jointly, given all those other little eager beavers, just the signal they needed to break through the dam and get going whilst the going’s good.
No doubt all those people over there in the East will think the will have an opportunity to thank Matron Annie in the usual way at the next election. But of course, she won’t be standing, as she’s on her way to become one of the 800 Lords-A-Leaping! As for the Hunt Ball – God only knows if he gives a damn what happens in his patch – no doubt he will just keep the inane grin on his face and head for the Big Job?
Yes, Mr Edge, the rot has really set in . Permission given on the Green Belt in Bramley and Elstead. Two slices of the once sacrosanct Green Belt in Waverley gone in just one week, and one of which contained a real sting in the tail – which will be the subject of another post!
Another planning application in for nearly 500 homes on the green, green, grass of Alfold by Thakeham Homes at Springbok (can’t even wait for its Appeal) just jump Annie’s Gun – and get in quick while the Dunsfold Brownfield scheme is slung into the ‘waiting room.’ Soon the applications will be arriving in their droves.
Eight long years wasted by “Your Waverley” on its DAFT LOCAL PLAN and whilst the Council Fiddles – the Borough Burns!
