And yet he still continues his weekly Val Schier bashing with 4CA's hatred-filled leader John "Cueball" MacKenzie, another branch in King's woman-hating personality.
"Can-Do-Do" Newman's response today showed how little he's aware of the personality, temperment, and history of this last-minute, third-string substitute candidate for Paul Freebody.
And Gavin King's response to Channel 7News? "I'm not going to dignify it with a comment", then he went on to claim that it's a political dirty trick by the ALP, etc. The "non-comment-comment".
Sadly for Cairns, we're likely to have another Labor member for Cairns after the election, in an LNP government. Doing bugger all for Cairns, again. Cairns residents are the laughingstock of both state and federal parliaments. Everyone complains that FNQ doesn't get its share of government largess - and yet we continue to elect ignorant, do-nothing representatives. Respect is earned, and when you elect people like Gavin King, Warren Entsch, and Bob Katter as our elected voices, we shouldn't be surprised that the region gets no respect.
King should do the right thing and withdraw. Even if he's elected, he'll be worthless to the residents of the seat of Cairns.
