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!
We even extend an open invitation to those poor old Waverley Councillors who are bitterly complaining 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?
