MORE TARGETED CALLS FOR GAVIN KING OUSTER AS LNP PRESELECTION FOR CAIRNS - AND THE CATHOLICS ARE NOW LINED UP TO GIVE THE HEATHEN THE HEAVE HO, HO, HO!

GAVIN KING TRYING TO EXPLAIN HIS SICK AND TWISTED HATRED OF
WOMEN AND CATHOLICS WHILE STUNNED LNP NODDERS LOOK FOR
ESCAPE ROUTE AWAY FROM THIS LUNATIC
Political website Change.org has today issued a press release calling on defacto Queensland LNP Leader Campbell Newman to dis-endorse former Cairns News Ltd. reporter Gavin King in the state seat of Cairns.


As reported here first, King is well-known in Cairns for his vile misogynistic views, which he has used to attack Cairns first female Mayor, Val Schier along with fellow woman-hater, 4CA's John MacKenzie.  King's column in the Cairns Post, which called for inebriated women to accept responsibility for their being raped by virtue of their drinking, is just one in the divisive views that he's voiced over the years.


It's now thought that the local Cairns Catholic diocese, led by Bishop James Foley, is poised to join the calls to remove King as the LNP candidate as well.  Along with women, King is known to be hostile to Catholics in Cairns, with one of his columns in the Cairns Post referring to the Pope as "an image of horror and doom", and a man who "attracts lunatics and fruitcakes as followers".  


With the majority of Catholics in Cairns voting historically in support of conservative political views and candidates, the LNP's continued support of King (preselected in a rigged process according to Cairns LNP members) will ensure a walkover by the young dynamic Kirsten Lesina in the seat held by Labor for 100 years.


Gavin King's wife Leah is pregnant again with their second child in two years.  Gavin is clearly proving he's a "real man" by banging out another rugrat so quickly.  Or maybe Leah King was drunk, and just has to cop it sweet. 


Yuck.

ADDENDUM:  We take your point, Athena, and we generally agree with the concept of "keeping the family out of it".  This blog has never commented on, for example, the "partner" of Warren Entsch.


However Leah King has made herself part of the equation for two reasons:
1.  She's actively out spruiking Gavin's candidacy.  This makes her just as much a part of the team as his PR hacks.
2.  Leah King is still shown in her own Linkedin profile as employed at the Cairns Post, and she has worked as a writer for the paper as well as her title in Human Resources.  One of the links below shows her byline.  The candidate having an "insider" at the Cairns Post is a reportable item - and even more so when it happens to be his spouse.

A quick look at statistics shows that 25% of the Australian population are catholics. If King doesn't get disendorsed now, then the LNP will be portrayed as agreeing with his views. I can see the headlines now...'LNP believes Catholics are lunatics and fruitcakes', and 'LNP believes Pope is responsible for evil deeds'. King will not only destroy his own (aleady feeble)reputation, but possibly put a big black mark over an entire party for many years to come. Well done local LNP branch.

Hillbilly, I'm very uncomfortable your even mentioning King's wife. I believe families of all political candidates, representatives etc deserve privacy and anonymity.

I just read the column and King was pretty hard on the old Pope. No, it wouldn't have gone down too well with the staunch Catholics. King could have just attacked the Church for not addressing child abuse cases more seriously, but not the Pope himself.

Hehehe, just love that photo of the LNP candidates. Have a good squiz at the look on their faces as King talks. It says it all.

Your link to his column is the tame one about the President and the Pope...there was a much more extreme rant - which of course has been removed from the Cairns Post website. And one must ask why. To distance the company or protect their own.

And then there is the other question which is unanswered. King says he is being funded from various revenue streams (most candidates work up until an election is called and they take leave when the election is called - obviously in Kings case this could not happen).

Who funds King??? The public need to know because those who back him may call for special treatment post election. The Integrity Commissioner has no power over candidates - only elected members.

King is appearing on radio ABC and radio 4CA as Mackenzie's offsider. Could he be receiving payments there?

By association King denigrates all Catholics, those who attend or work at a Catholic school. All those who work at or have been treated at a Catholic hospital and those who have received assistance from Catholic support agencies such as the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Certainly within the Catholic Church and and other religions and groups there have been a very small minority who have abused their trust but to attack the entire church and followers is bizarre.

I wonder what Tony Abbot would think about this outspoken person from his party.

Maybe Tony should be asked - he loves to be in front of the media.

Hillbilly, Labor has not held the seat of Cairns for over one hundred years. Louis (Joe) Barnes, Independent, was the Member for Cairns during the war years of 1942 to 1947. The family of Joe Barnes still live in the area.

the "partner" of Warren Entsch should read "partners"
