|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
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.
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.
