They seek her here, they seek her there...

Anne Milton courted a number of interest groups and appeared at many, many public meetings and events before she was an MP... even when she wasn't invited.

Now she has secured herself a seat, she rarely turns up to such events... even when she *is* invited.

Here are just a few examples from recent months:

In October 2005, the University of Surrey Students' Newspaper 'Barefacts' reported that; Anne Milton, the recently elected Conservative MP for Guildford, chose to turn down the invitation by USSU to meet her student electorate at freshers' fayre on 21st September, despite the fact that parliament was in recess.

She did take the time to attend an informal Uni event a little over a month later, but not before Dennis Paul and Mike Chambers savaged the editor of that newspaper and made total arses of themselves in the process.

In November 2005, Anne did somehow find the time to attend the Remembrance Sunday service and procession in Guildford, but she put a few noses out of joint after spending roughly twelve nanoseconds at the reception that followed. Eyewitnesses described a 'whooshing' sound, leaving only a Milton-shaped cloud by the main exit.

On the evening of Dec 14 2005, a major local action group (CBAG) held a large public meeting and invited Anne as the MP. She declined, opting to send her researcher (not a Tory councillor, but her researcher). Former MP Sue Doughty was invited instead. The meeting and its outcome was deemed worthy of a front page article in the local newspaper. Nothing in the record at Hansard suggests that Parliamentary matters kept Amme away on this date, and the House closed fairly early that day.

Perhaps matters will improve when Anne moves to Guildford. You are committing to our little constituency and moving to Guildford, aren't you Anne?



Isn't that that the Coalition of Badger Action Groups?!

It is the Cranleigh Brickworks Action Group, oh clever person with witless profile.

See report on meeting: 100 people assembled at Cranleigh Village Hall on Wednesday December 14 at a public meeting to discuss controversial plans to build 170 homes at polluted land in Knowle Lane, Cranleigh.

Now, class... onto the next acronym quiz.

What does LSC stand for? Is it:
A - Lightning Strike Coalition
B - Least Significant Character
C - Learning and Skills Council
