Are you aware of the proposed Surrey cuts? The weight of public opinion should count?

Have you been to Surrey County Council’s drop-in consultations to find out exactly what its proposed cuts will mean for the future of our essential services?

Councillors Paul Follows and his county council colleague Councillor Penny Rivers were there – and are fuming.

Where were all the Tory Tossers? – Out ordering the turkey? Writing their Christmas Cards or wrapping presents? Watching the debacle that was unfolding at Westminster? Because they certainly weren’t to be seen at an event staged by the  County Council to explain how they intend to save shedloads of money by closing our recycling centres in Farnham & Cranleigh, close children’s centres, libraries etc…!

Of course, the elephant at Waverley Towers is the fact there was no mention of the £50 odd million (SCC) has invested in Brightwell’s Yard. The county council and borough’s widely criticised partnership to build  28 new retail and restaurant units + homes in Farnham’s East Street.  Did they mention their years of financial mismanagement of one of the wealthiest counties in the country?

Listen to what Councillor Paul Follows has to say.  A  councillor who has been in post for less than a year, learning on the job, listens to the public and becomes more disillusioned every day that goes by.

Thank you on behalf of the people of Waverley Councillor Follows for telling us how angry and concerned you are – and we will ensure we make both ours, and your views, known.

Here at the Waverkey Web he’s a  man after our own hearts.  But, you know what?  In next Mays elections the Tories will do their damndest to kick him out?

 

 

A New Year resolution for WBC?

There’s a grief that can’t be spoken
There’s a pain goes on and on
Empty chairs at empty tables, Where have the councillors’ gone…?

Not exactly the scene from the Les Miserables but we at WW, and many of our followers are getting sick of looking at empty chairs and empty tables at Waverley Towers.

Yes, we read the apology for the lack of video which was caused by “technical issues with the webcasting equipment,” but you know what – make it your New Year Resolution by  using some of our council tax andcall the engineers in!

There were so many apologies from members who could  not, or would not attend  on Tuesday, and read out so fast we couldn’t catch them. Suffice to say  it appeared as if it was more  Home Alone than Les Miserables – or maybe it was both!
