Entsch, who's made no secret in Cairns about his disaffection with the LNP is apparently close to jumping ship - despite his apparent conflict with Katter's known homophobia and hostility towards the LGBT community.
Local LNP candidate for the Queensland Parliament seat of Cairns, Paul Freebody, when told of the likely defection of Entsch, reportedly loudly commented before a group last night, "good riddance to the bitter old queer"! This from an ousted Cairns City councillor who then launched a right-wing religious-based attack on the current Mayor and other female councillors, calling them "witches and bitches"!
(A later report has suggested the Freebody quote was, in fact, "bitter old queen".) YMMV
More soon. . . . .
