The Hillbilly Watch is going to profile these frequent callers over the next few weeks. Let's get to know some of these jerks, shall we?
PEARL FROM WANGETTI
Taking her nom de plume from a piece of cheap crappy costume jewelry, Pearl's real name is Karin Pollard. She's well-known as a nut-job to her Wangetti neighbours, and in fact was also at odds with the previous Douglas Shire Council who often banned her from Council meetings.
She fancies herself a poet, and writes new lyrics to tired old songs attacking her perceived enemies. No lie is too big for Karin Pollard to tell about the Cairns Mayor and council - she's so misogynist, many believe she's actually a man in drag.
On today's Rugnut programme, she started out by announcing that she had "discovered" a secret, unpublished council meeting to discuss the Entertainment Precinct is being held at Council Chambers. . .TOMORROW.
Apparently like all MacKenzie Hillbillies, Karin Pollard can't read. Not a lick. Not even that big "STOP SIGN" at the end of her street. 'Cause if she could read, she would have seen the big page of "Cairns Entertainment Precinct Committee" meetings on the Cairns Council website, where it's been for almost two months now. This website shows ALL the "secret" meetings being held by Council from now until the end of 2011. These meetings are "secret" only in the sense that people like Karin Pollard, stupid as a bag of hammers, are too ignorant to locate the listing of public meetings being held by council.
And true to form, Rugnut Mackenzie agreed that this meeting must be "secret", and then asked Karin Pollard for a report on what happened at the last "secret" meeting. The witch from Wangetti gave her sick twisted view of the project, and then said the only true thing all day: Karin Pollard represents the "vocal minority". Not the mainstream, NORMAL Cairns residents!
