The 202 aging listeners to this programme all called in, giving Kevin Byrne 72% of their vote. They also voted to bring back dirt roads, close JCU, stop foreigners from entering Cairns, and the Kevin Byrne favourite - ship all the aboriginals back to their "communities" by rocket sled.
We note that Byrne polled over 80% the week prior to the last council election in this same MacKenzie phone poll. Such is the cross-section being polled by the hillbilly hour - garbage in, garbage out.
Kevin Byrne is singularly responsible for the erection of the numerous prison tower apartments around the town, the shady dealing on the Harbour Lights site, the approval of ghetto apartment projects in Trinity Beach, Clifton Beach, and other areas, along with public housing projects in Trinity Park and Palm Cove. The collapse of CMC, Glencorp, Hedley, and CEC were directly caused by the unchecked developer greed fostered by Kevin Byrne and his "team of yes men". Byrne also purchased an inadequate site for the Entertainment Precinct without any public consultation, conveniently adjacent to the Capital Globe high rise project in Sheridan Street. He was then awarded a directorship with Capital Globe, a company now bankrupt after the assassination of his fellow directors under mysterious circumstances. A situation still unexplained by Byrne to date.
Byrne also gave Cairns the famous "Avenue A Pizza", direct from New York. Except there is no "Avenue A Pizza" in New York, it's a complete fraud. Mercifully now closed as well.
Then there's his wife Amanda, and her shady dealings. Google reveals all.
The community "insiders", noting Byrne has done nothing to assist the community during the Cairns economic downturn, have described his employment in PNG as "hiding out" from the Pakistani assassins who were never caught. Many have said Byrne has been looking over his shoulder for years.
Kevin Byrne back?
In your dreams, hillbillies!
