LNP CANDIDATE FOR CAIRNS GETS EXPENSIVE, FOREIGN-IMPORT CAMPAIGN VEHICLES

Ex-Cairns Post editor Gavin King, who's been "out of work" since resigning from his News Ltd. position several months ago, continues to spend campaign money like a drunken (female?) sailor.  Voters have expressed increasing outrage at both the profligate spending in light of the LNP claims that "Queensland is Broke", as well as the purchase by King of two foreign imports when Australian-made products are available.

The LNP CanDo policies include "cutting government waste".  Apparently Gavin King hasn't gotten the word.  We've asked King to explain who's paid for these vehicles, why he needs them in the compact Cairns electorate, and why he's not supportive of the Australian auto industry.  There has been no response, but to be fair, he doesn't respond to anything without a voucher from Campbell Newman.

The two items Gavin is cruising around in:

MERCEDES-BENZ 117 WAGON >$55,000 NEW

NISSAN TIIDA >$18,000 NEW


Both vehicles have had expensive graphics work from Allsigns Print, owned by Scott & Kerri Brown.  Scott Brown has the kind of CV that qualifies him to be LNP candidate for Cairns.  Unlike the actual candidate.


The stench around this LNP candidate continues to expand exponentially.  No wonder he's refused to attend the community candidate forum and Town Hall on Sunday, the 5th of February.

The moment an ALP candidate puts their face on an imported car this post is null and void. Clutching at straws, sorry.

Kisten Lesina is already doing her bit to cut waste - she is driving a 20-year-old Hi-Ace, probably fifth hand. And she also gets around on a treadly.

DJ "Basher" Hunt, on the other hand, has a huge shiny 4WD.

Where the hell is his campaign money coming from? Whose pocket is he sitting in? TWO NEW CARS??? No other political candidate in my memory has ever had TWO NEW VEHICLES. No question in my mind, King has been bought.

Jeeeeeeeeeeeezuz H. Christ, if these are a sample of gobsnot's thirty pieces of silver, then he's gonna have the most monied campaign ever seen up here.

Ron said...

I reckon he'd get inundated with questions about where he got these vehicles from. He's obviously rolling in the dough. Only thirty pieces of silver, bogan? I reckon he's got a bank vault of pieces of silver.

Miners have given LIberal millions and millions to dump the mining tax so they are rolling in it.

He needs to fess up and tell us who is bankrolling him. Its a sure bet that it is not the gun lobby - Katter has that stitched up.

Maybe its the ETU - they like to give - but no longer to ALP.

I think the cars are the only squeaky clean thing about Gav in Cairns.

The spending of obscene amounts of money isn't confined to the LNP. I'm quite sure that the same is going on with Kirsten Lesina, and others on all sides of politics.

The notable issue here is King's crass insensitivity to those in Cairns doing it tough, as well as the obvious disinterest in Aussie manufacturing workers.

It's just another data point confirming why King has no temperament or intellectual capacity to serve as MP for Cairns.

Tony Abbott wants to copy the policy of Howard which is spend money on pork barrells ie middle class welfare, not on health. Abbot wanted to increase the cost of prescriptions or something, anyway as health minister fail. So how can Can/Do Drive/New Gavin King promise a tier one hospital?, He can't. He is only promising he will ask for it, no promise he can deliver. So he gets the new shiny junk and a pension and we will get nothing. He is running a campaign on something he cannot deliver. FAIL.

That bloated porcine pig Clive Palmer has in all likelihood given several million to the LNP, hence the monied campaign. Christ, I'd laugh if Hunt or Lesina shit in and left King for dead in the election,

This is excessive spending, even by Sydney standards. This indicates to me that King is playing to win and that it is a "do or die" effort. It also is a good indication that the coffers are full of money. We can expect a glitzy razzmattaz American style campaign. He has the media "on side", deliberately slanting the press releases of his main competitor, Ms Lesina, or ceaselessly condemning his opponents, on local radio. Added to this, is the growing scandal of Wivenhoe Dam, something which may be the nail in the coffin for the Bligh Government. From where I sit, it appears King cannot fail.

I agree Liz said... The union Labor thugs are trying there hardest to dig up dirt on Gavin but the voters are wise to them, and have had enough of there thuggery and lies.

bogan said...

Clive PALMER is another one as fat as a suicide bomber.

SAPPHO said...

Two cars?? He's in someone's pocket alright, probably playing pocket billiards with them as well.
