"GAVIN KING IN HIS OWN WORDS"

YOU KNOW YOUR CANDIDATE HAS DESCENDED INTO THE SEWER WHEN HE COMPLAINS THAT QUOTING HIS OWN PUBLISHED WORDS IS "MUDSLINGING"

I am making sure everyone I know in Cairns sees this just incase they are thinking of voting for the LNP next Saturday.... Cannot fathom how anyone could vote for this hateful, negative sleazebag........

Dina said...

"The LNP are a bunch of bogans" KIng reckons and politicians "performing parrots."
Good grief. Now he's being made to eat his own words, he's whinging and whining. Hey sookie boy King, ever heard of ACCOUNTABILITY? You know you were always ranting and raving about that in your columns. ACCOUNTABILITY! You are accountable for what YOU yourself have written. Now MAN up, if you know how, and be accountable.

Nanna Kay said...

King "man" up Dina?? Did you really say MAN!!!!! King isn't a man, he's a rodent. Go and put your specs on you myopic old goose!

JOHN MACKENZIE'S HILLBILLY WATCH said...

Sadly, the choice is between a sleazebag, and a dunce of epic proportions. And since the dunce is representing the party we most in Queensland want gone, I think the only rational choice is one of the off-party alternatives. At least we won't all look like FNQ bogans. Either that, or just write in "Bozo the Pollie".

Mr. Ramsey said...

It looks like Lesina might win by default, which is too bad.

Although not a Katter supporter, I found that Mr. Hunt is the only candidate for the seat of Cairns, who has displayed any enthusiasm and passion for the job.

Both King and Lesina are puppets and party stooges, who will not give us any better representation.

Personally I don't care which party the member of Cairns comes from. I just want someone who stands up for our best interests and represents us in Brisbane, not the other way around as has been the case for a long time.

Liz at work said...

King is frightened of his own words which says a lot about the character of the man. He is weak and without ethics. After hearing a lot about this infamous "Facebook" site, I had a look myself this morning. How revealing it was. There is a male "moderator", a candidate in the forthcoming Council Elections who is obviously too frightened himself of Bryan Law to curb Bryan's excessive aggression and rancour despite the number of people "blocking" Law and also requesting he be banned. The moderator is bending over backwards (yes I know, a very sus expression these days) to accommodate Law, not noticing apparently the number of people, both men and women leaving the forum and thenceforth carrying tales of the moderator's weak and effete behaviour all over the city. The moderator in effect has caused himself, not Bryan, the greater damage. This forum demonstrates to me one of the great problems we have in Cairns. People like Bryan are given open slather to create the havoc they do because very few people have the innate courage and basic decency to take him to task.

Destiny Prophet said...

Am I just sentimentalising the past or was there a time when most political candidates had put in years of community work, gaining a profile for their good deeds before they put their hand up?

On another note, I wondered why anyone would have children in this difficult world until I noticed on the news how convenient they are for protecting gutless wonders when they venture into shopping centres.

Ron said...

King's lack of ethics is just mind boggling. He calls having his own words brought before the attention of the public, "mud slinging"?? Doesn't the fool believe he is responsible for what he says?? Jesus, he sounds like one sick, confused fuck.

Neil said...

Liz, I concur with your observations once again. Curiosity drove me to have a gander at that site myself. Law is indeed in his element and given completely free rein to say what he likes and his attacks are more blatantly aggressive on the women. I agree, the moderator is weak and ineffectual and unquestionably scared shitless of Law. King, on the other hand, appears to be scared shitless of his own words.

Tony Hillier said...

In my considered opinion, the best way to cope with the excessively opinionated Mr Law is to ignore him.

Bob Dobolina said...

People who are on the side of King in this election, e.g. diehard LNP supporters who obviously will firmly stand by anyone with the LNP title attached to them, should think carefully about what they are doing.

By publically sticking up for, and supporting King, it could be presumed that they are fine with his comments, and possibly agree with them. They need to think about their futures. Do they have ambitions to enter politics one day? Do they hope to gain a high profile job somewhere in their future? If this is the case, future prospective employers and certainly political opponents can quite easily trace back their tweets, facebook messages and 'likes' as having once been a supporter of Gavin King, and therefore a supporter of all his digusting and twisted views on all manner of things. Their reputations can be damaged forever.

Something to think about.

How many politicians exposed to that forum and no intervention? yet we trust them with ensuring a bully free environment for our children. They do not even recognise it or are too cowardly to stand up. If any did stand up to it let me know and they will get my vote. Few heroes there but not standing for election sadly.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the Kamerunga Kid. Most of Cairns has a pretty good handle on the overrated Bryan Law as we do with Fuckwit Phil from the Southside and Boydy Scott of Mission Beach with their numerous, pointless and inane comments in the obviously unmoderated online Cairns Post.

Have the KAP done it again? Just saw their new advertisement on TV, the one to replace the insulting homophobic one. Tell me .... am I overly sensitive??? As the voice-over is saying 'Asians coming to take our jobs' they are showing pictures of Chinese Red Army. What are they inferring??? is this suppose to frighten people toward Asians???? My god. Isn't that racism?? I cringed when I saw it, again......
In my option if they were trying to attack Anna, they have again distracted from their points with unacceptable redneck bigotry and racism. If the KAP didn't learn anything in the last week after the bigoted ad furor, it is crystal clear that KAP thinking is fifty yeas behind most of the population. There is no place in the society I want to live in for a political party that will try to whip up votes using anti-gay and anti-Asian sentiment. Please God say us from the rednecks.
Another success story from long-term cretin Luke Shaw (remember him? Bejelke Johs' jury foreman) who authorised both these ads for KAP.

Punctuation anonymous. It is really important. Oh and spelling and the use of apostrophes in contractions. But on a positive note, you spelt losers correctly this time. Keep up the good work.

athena said...

I haven't seen the KAP ad, Anonymous in which you state that a voiceover says something about "Asians taking our jobs". However I suspected that KAP would try and tap into the old One Nation Vote, which, if I recall rightly, was quite high in Queensland in the 1998 Election. It makes me cringe too, to see such obvious "wedge" issues being used in an election, however as John Howard discovered, they can be successful.

Curly Joe said...

- a bully free environment for our children!! What a bloody joke hey. Yeah I noticed that schools all over Australia are having awareness days about bullying being not on for the kids. You wonder what the kids think when they read Gavin King in The Cairns Post or listen to Mackenzie on 4CA.
Their bullyboy campaign against Val Schier is the worst media hatefest in my memory. Whatever the candidates or politicians sling to each other in an election campaign period of a few weeks is bloody nothing compared to the years of abuse, harassment and bullying that the Mayor has been given. Then there is The Cairns Post where people who comment are abused and villified by others without restraint or moderation. Yeah, who can blame the kids for picking up mixed messages that bullying is alright? Finally there are the kids parents who go into political forums like the one on facebook and find a so called "moderator" who reveals himself to be scared shitless of demented thugs like Bryan Law. Then Gavin King himself continues to muddy up all the mixed messages by screaming about "bullying" when his own abusive words are flung back at him. Yeah, what a fine example the adults are showing the kids. No fucking wonder teenagers are commiting suicide!

Dina said...

What a cowardly bullyboy King is proving himself. Fancy calling his OWN words "mudslinging". Doesn't he have any ethics at all? Hey, dickhead, you wrote these comments. You are RESPONSIBLE for them. Calling Catholics "lunatics and fruitcakes" for example. You did that you slimy narrow minded grub. How dare you.

Liz said...

Well said Curly Joe. With bullying, its a case of "Monkey see, monkey do." The kids are following the behaviour of adults, and here in Cairns are watching the venomous behaviour of high profile people like King and Mackenzie. King is completely self-serving, unscrupulous and without ethics. This latest excample of his complaining that his own words are "mud slinging" is very clear evidence that he is without conscience. Let me predict, that if he wins the seat, he will make statements about how "ugly the campaign was" and how it was all "dirt and smear" and how he himself was a "victim". Watch him then go and link that up with teen suicides and how "disgusted he is" with the way adults behave and how the "behaviour" of "certain people" have sunk to intolerable levels in Cairns. In other words, I am expecting King will start a campaign to protect HIMSELF from criticism....in the cunning guise of "protecting the kids."

JOHN MACKENZIE'S HILLBILLY WATCH said...

Dina, the funniest thing about them is ol' Cueball's story that they've obviously concocted together.

"They're all being taken out of context".

We're still working on details of Gavin King's FIRST missus, BTW.

Dina said...

Hillbilly, what utter rubbish Cueball trying to make out they are taken out of "context". Calling us Catholics "lunatics and fruitcakes" is pure ridicule and contempt and another example of how narrow minded and intolerant King is. I am interested to know more about King's first wife!! I am using my woman's intuition here, and judging by what I have seen of King, I wouldn't hesitate in saying he is the sort of man to toss a wife because she would be a stumbling block in his ambitions.

ECKERS said...

You are an astute woman Liz, and I look forward to reading your comments. I agree. We will see King, if he wins the seat, start a campaign to insulate and protect himself from public criticism, under the pretext, of course, of "being role models for the kids".

Bazza said...

Hillbilly

With your comment/opinion "we most in Queensland want gone" you are sounding more like mckenzie. he makes out he knows the majority and rants that kind of crap.
I do not want Qld to go backwards and that will happen with LNP.
They won't spend $'s on community infrastructure and if they did they would only want it to happen with one of their business mates making the handout of profits from Gov.
newman has already said he will change the local gov act which means we will go back to the byrne type council when there was no opportunity for residents comment of development in their neighbourhood. Remember when that council changed a lot of area's to residential 3 without any consultation, in came hedley & glenwood etc, residents were all of a sudden woken by the sound of machinery tearing into the neighbouring property to build multi story apartments looking over the privacy of their property, valuations for them went down the gurgler. That was the big BOOM. The ones who purchased later in this at inflated prices now have had many thousands lost on their valuation.
You can only wonder who was donating to byrne's campaigns and what control he had over the council management/councillors to get these unfair outcomes.

Nanna Kay said...

I wonder if Gavin King wrote those comments about Catholics being "lunatics and fruitcakes" when Bryan Law told him he was "religious."

JOHN MACKENZIE'S HILLBILLY WATCH said...

Bazza,
It doesn't take the IQ of a Cueball to realise that the ALP is toast. Claiming that Qld will go "backwards. . with the LNP" is in fact YOU making like you know the future. We can't know the future - elections are more and more like retribution for the past and no one deserves time in the wilderness than the Qld ALP.

Your assumptions about the rest are, well, fanciful. The public needs to remain vigilant, and that means rejecting drivel from both John MacKenzie and people like you.

athena said...

I have been researching the changes that Newman proposes to the Local Government Act. In Mackay's Daily Mercury on 24/2/2012he says that his changes will make Councils responsible for planning and development assessment of schools and hospitals. In The Australian of 18/02/2012 he says that his changes will "empower Councils to drive development" and that "too much power rests with CEOS and Council staff." There is little doubt from this that Newman proposes to reduce the responsibility of the State Government towards public infrastructure and pass it along to Regional Councils. Along with this he is proposing to give more authority to councillors to make those decisions. I can't find any more information at this point, but I am wondering if all Council Candidates in the coming Council election are aware of all the changes and how they will impact on their role?

nomooremike said...

Hillbilly, are you seriously saying that things will be BETTER under the LNP?

Where and when has it ever been better?

It will be the same same same until all the mining $$$$ come rolling in, then will be HAPPAY HAPPAY HAPPAY But that is a few yeas away so meanwhile we eat beans and toast.

Correction. Just listened to that bloody KAP ad again. They say "foreigners taking your jobs" not "Asians" as I wrote last night but the inference is still clear with the images of marching red army soldiers... Awful stuff.
Can't wait for this election to be over with losers Gavin King and Katter et al fading into the background .... I can wish can't I?

Anonymous said...

This election will see one bunch of clowns replaced by another bunch of clowns. The scary bit is that the likes of Clive Palmer will now now have his way with his bunch of political flunkies which will make the coal seam gas issue pale into insignificance by comparison to his plans for Qld.

athena said...

Looking at the LNP website and their "policies", they are full of eye-rolling hyperbole and over-the-top bromides of what a Paradise Queensland will be if the LNP is elected etc, but very sparse on specific policy detail. This coming election is all about voting a Government OUT, not IN. Hence, we are only hearing about all the negative things of the current Government, not a comprehensive range of policies of the alternate Government. Newman's promise to "overhaul the Local Government Act" while providing only scant details of exactly what this entails, scares me.

Liz said...

Well expressed there, athena. This election has been manipulated by the media machine all the way as a "revenge" election and emotion, not intellect is the driving force. The only objective is to vote a Government out, as you said. There is very little attention being given by the media and I point out, the public, to what sort of Government they will be voting IN. They are entirely focussed on one thing only, getting "rid of Bligh". There is a gloating, moralistic tone to the barrage of media headlines trumpeting the certainty of a Newman win and media manipulated controverises diverting focus away from close attention to policy details. You are correct, the LNP are indulging in excessive hyperbole and bromides while not releasing full details of their policies. This however, comes at a cost further down the track, as the reality of Government makes its impact and people lose their enthusiasm. The higher people's expectations are, the swifter the crash of a Government.

Bazza said...

The Gov changed the local act before the last local elections to stop bad development in particular of land still able to grow food on, hence the separation of power.
Also they introduced the 20/30 plan and SEQ & FNQ plans which put decisions of large development into state gov arena. If you were to have a look at the proposed dev
east of brisbane in particular around the redlands area you could understand why.
Could it be because of all this that newman didn't want to be a mayor any longer and couldn't get his way.
The consequences of the wrong development in this region could be devestating, I'm sure they are just waiting to get their hands on Port Douglas, don't worry about the environment, let's make dollars.
Have a look at what happened when the gungho development took place here, Cairns as a tourist destination slowed because tourist's could not see any character left here, they could go to many other places to see the same drab and more likely at better prices, approx 18 months before the last local election Qantas pulled their Sing/Cairns/Bris service, so what does that tell you.
It tells me there was bad decisions made by byrne's successive councils and they only had one thing in mind, dollars for them, never worried about maintaining the atmosphere Cairns once had.
I think the whole east coast should be concerned by lack of LNP policy.

Bazza said...

To add further, mckenzie, cochrane, and the conservatives in port douglas are running their crap about the coconuts on 4mile, this is to try and sway us that the separation of power is not working, don't bother informing us with the whole truth, this is where the media works their propaganda, only give us bits because it makes the whole story different. Possibly the separation does need to be tweeked but not to the extreme of where developers can sway mayors and councillors especially in delicate regions and our neighbourhoods.

Neil said...

Liz, I agree with your comments. We both lived in NSW so we saw first hand the wild swings during successive State Elections. Voters were emotionally driven and couldn't wait to "punish" a Government, rather than usher in a new Government for specific changes they wanted.

Curly Joe said...

athena, it doesnt look as if the local Council candidates are aware of Newmans plans in overhauling the Local Government Act. None are questioning the LNP for more details. Scarey stuff!

Ron said...

Bazza, could you explain a bit more about this "separation of power" and what it means.

Beano said...

Liz, you said "King will start a campaign to protect himself from criticism" above, I believe? Isn't this more or less what King already has started? Look at how he has coccooned himself from the public on the Mackenzie show, and The Cairns Post. If the media and the political pundits are correct, and the LNP are returned with such a majority that there is no political opposition, then King will have no accountability, well apart from Mr Hillbilly. However, I take your point. King will use the situation to protect himself not only from any possible public scrutiny and accountability but also to promote himself as a person of scrupulous ethics and principles and beyond questioning.
I believe he stirred up that very interesting debacle about one of his young campaign workers himself as part of his own covert plotting to establish public outrage and sympathy. King knows the media and he knows how to manipulate it to his advantage. I hope to God this despot isn't elected on Saturday.

Nanna Kay said...

The thought of Queensland ending up a one party state with no political or opposition of any kind is a very sobering thought, yet I believe we will end up with something like this after Saturday.
We will have opened up the doors to the worst type of governance imagineable.

A friend of mine saw King heading towards her house to door knock. Her husband answered the door, was handed a business card, no conversation and just as she was about to come from the kitchen to ask him a few questions or to hear what he had to say, he was off up the street. Some dumb door-knocking effort, Why doesn't he turn up to the public forums to read what he has been told to say by No Can Do Newman?

JOHN MACKENZIE'S HILLBILLY WATCH said...

Last anonymous,

You've missed the obvious answer.

He's been ordered to say bugger all. He can't win if he says more stupid shit now, can he? And he can't say stupid shit if his "campaigning" is comprised of leaving business cards and standing in the middle os the street waving a sign.

Pathetic.

Tony Hillier said...

I fear "we're all be doomed" (to quote the late, great Scot, John Laurie) if the polls are right and we have a lopsided Queensland parliament after the weekend. The political scene — all three tiers of it — is sadly bereft of people who espouse true community values or have a genuine "calling". Power lust and personal gain is the name of the game. That's why a self-serving, opinionated, immoral and egotistical prick like King has allowed himself to be muzzled. The only consolation is that after the election he will still be subservient to the party machine, the machine that has bankrolled his campaign and made him play the game. More's the pity they booted out the dim-witted Freebody.

Yeh, sure, the State ALP needed a rocket up its arse. But the great unwashed will be voting for change for the sake of change, without giving a second's thought to the prospect of replacing an albeit flawed established "govermint" with a bunch of money grabbing fuckwits who threaten to drag us right back to the dark days of Joh & co.

Anonymous said...

A dreadful thought - back to the dark days of Joh and Company. Having lived under his dictatorship and corrupt reign and seen this State become a police state I can see similarities in Newman (the little man, big mouth syndrome). Developers are already cracking the champagne.

athena said...

Sadly, the Joh days are a distant and fuzzy memory for many people and many others just were not here in Queensland or were even born.
I, too, can hear the White Shoe brigade tapping excitedly away, champing at the bit, so to speak, particularly with Newman promising to "overhaul the entire Local Government Act." Newman's cosy relationship with developers is equal to that of old Russ Hinze.
Unless Anna can pull something like Hewson's "cake" out of a hat this week, Queensland looks set to become a one party State with unprecedented power being given to Newman and the LNP.

Destiny Prophet said...

Those in Labor who decided to let bygones be bygones in the late 80's/early nineties have a lot to answer for, because by not pursuing those corrupt bastards then means they are now able to prevaricate about what went on back then and perpetuate the Joh myths of a booming economy and well managed state.

If they'd continued the investigations and prosecutions enough would have been behind bars to shame the likes of Tenni and Katter into obscurity and a decent conservative party may have emerged instead of just a more cautious version of what went before. There were decent Liberals who could have come forward and even decent Nationals like Gunn, Ahern and Borbidge.

Luckily we have internet and institutions to keep an eye on things now - they will not get away with so much 2nd time around.

Don't you worry about that, The LNP will have the mandate to do whatever they want.
Vote 1 for Gavin the new puppet for Cairns.
He's in for sure and there is not a thing we can do accept use the brain god gave you and Vote for anyone other than this false King.
