First he attempted to inject his spending ideas into the local Cairns Council, offering to spend their "pot of federal money" on a stadium and his silly "tunnel to nowhere" idea while attacking plans for the long-needed Entertainment Precinct. He spoke viciously about the Cairns Mayor Schier on the "Cueball" hour, for weeks. Then, suddenly, he sees a vision and sez "yes, the Entertainment Precinct should be built on the waterfront". Leaving his former fellow allies out to dry.
Then he's spruiking to get money for the new Chinese owners of the Sheraton Mirage, claiming that "Chinese culture likes tangible government commitments". Warren, mate, it's called a bribe - that's Chinese business culture, not ours. A few beheadings for political corruption in Australia might not be such a bad idea.
Then of course the Entschy-generated email sent as a thinly-veiled attack against Malcolm Turnbull, whom Entsch has privately described as "one o' them misguided intellectuals". Yup, what the LNP needs is more closeted homos - let's run that by the voters in Wentworth.
Yesterday, reports of Entch's disgust with LNP Candidate for Cairns, Paul Freebody were all the rage. Actually, this was the first sensible position Warren's taken all year - Freebody is an even bigger clown than Wazza and his preselection for the seat of Cairns will guarantee an LNP loss despite enormous anger against Labor in Cairns. Freebody's now painting himself, his failed waterpark, and failing carwash as a "victim" of the GFC, when in fact he's just a victim of his own greed and big mouth. And yet today Entsch rolls over like a Christmas goose, issuing a media statement backing down the same day he tells the Cairns Post he stood by his previous statements!
Don't forget his outsourcing of his website to Brisbane while attacking Council for not protecting local jobs. Or his employment of bankrupt Danae Jones as full-time media advisor, after she failed to pay employees and contractors around the town.
Whew! I'm exhausted just keeping track of it all!
Then there's the story that the Cairns Post won't cover - Entsch's financial relationship with failed company the CEC Group (CEG), where he was director and chairman during a critical time that the company stopped paying entitlements, superannuation, and other required company payments. ASIC is investigating Entsch as part of their criminal probe into the failure of CEC, where Entsch was still a "consultant" as the house of cards collapsed.
These are the acts of a deranged madman, only interested in what he can get for himself. The kind of politician that MUST GO, regardless of party or ideology.
WARREN ENTSCH: SICK JACKASS OR DERANGED PSYCHOPATH?
OR NOW CRIMINAL CORPORATE CONSPIRATOR?
