IAN THOMAS - ARROGANT ARSEHOLE, CARPETBAGGER, AND BOMB THROWER - - - NO PICK FOR CRC MAYOR

Since "blow-in" Gold Coast resident Ian Thomas showed up in Cairns "to save us", he's been long on bullshit generalisations and short on actual ideas and plans.  Even Raj and I agree that this guy's not yet articulated one thing he's going to do, except "freeze" rates.  And ratepayers are in no mood for bullshit rate promises from Ian Thomas or anyone else.


He says things like 

  • "years and years of dysfunctional council".
  • "Council should be fixing the economy"
  • "Fundamental and structural ideas to make it fair"
  • "Promises to keep all local construction contracts in Cairns"
  • "30% waste in current council budget"
  • "I'm going to shut down all the idiotic projects"


IAN THOMAS APPARENTLY DOESN'T CARE MUCH FOR
LOCAL PARKING LAWS, EITHER.  SCOFFLAW, TOO!

(Thanks Janine for the Photo)
Of course, not a hint at his solutions, just dictator-like bluster.  He's told Cueball MacKenzie his plans are "secret, to be revealed at a later time".


We hope back in his Gold Coast home.  No one in their right mind would vote for this guy.  "No One in Their Right Mind" generally takes 7% of the vote in CRC elections - Bryan Law's benchmark from before he was a convicted serial criminal and thus ineligible for public orifice.

Dina said...

Seems to me as if the Mayoralty will be between Manning and Schier.

Well Anonymous@16.33, If you feel the way you do about Hillbilly why the FnHell do you bother reading it. Don't you understand that its Hillbilly's Blog and he can run it however he likes. Some people like it some don't - just like you like CueBall and MastHead Manning and others on here agree with Hillbilly. If you don't like don't bother to waste your time and blog and don't both to read it. I enjoy it and I read it every day. In regards to Ian Thomas, I understand that he still owes monies to Tradies and Business Houses from times when he was building developments here which had to be later sold in an attempt to repay debts owing???? Charlie.

Anonymous above, why don't you learn punctuation and spelling? That would take up your spare time so you don't have to hang around in here.

I'd say he'll get less than 5% of the vote. The guy is a wanker. Agree, it will be between Val and Bob with Margie being the deliberate spoiler. Hope she has the crappy retirement she deserves! What a cow!

Well Anonymous@16.33.

You sure rattled Hillbilly's cage.

Thrillbilly's "20 or so" followers are all his psychopathic skitzo aliases.

Pathetic really.

He still hasn't gotten over the fact that Gavin is the man for cairns for the next 4 years.

His support for Val will be a "kiss of death".

Hahaha ...

You're right HB, I've only heard two actual "policies" announced by anyone. Marge Cochrane and her "connect Lake Street to the airport access road", and Bob Manning's "free internet for the tourists".

The problem with both these "policies" is that council's already begun working on plans for the Lake Street extension, and Internet access, free or not, isn't a government service but one for the private sector.

While not happy about the last four years, Val is clearly still the best of the bunch by far.

Bob R. said...

I agree CBD Warrior. Val is the best of the bunch, but after Saturday's election result, it doesn't necessarily mean the best gets voted in.

Poor old whale oil was getting all misty eyed over the jackboot utopian days of Joh and the best police force money could buy in the last post and here he is trolling again. I think we all know where you are coming from whale old boy *yawns*.Why not take up something useful like bowls or go and harass Werner on his blog.

I want Alan Blake to take control and lead Cairns back into prosperity.
He's a man with impecible moral fibre and business skills, just ask him he'll tell you how good he is.
<3 you Alan.
Why didn't you run for Mayor?
I'd vote for you.
You wonderfull man.

Curly Joe said...

The worst case scenario is that Cochrane directs her preferences to Manning who gets up and over the line. Manning then sits in the Mayoral office and "resigns" after a decent period and Newman just up and appoints Byrne.

Anonymous said...

Oh alright Curly. Phooey, you really know how to turn a person off their brekky don't you? Just the thought of Jubba Byrne waddling round in the mayoral ermine and velvet is enough to put a stream of sick up in the mouth.

Anonamiss said...

We've got Wazza Entsch and Gav 'the Vag' King- wouldn't Cairns electing Thomas give us the trifecta of embarrassing representatives?

Curly Joe said...

Grandad YESSIR YESSIR THREE BAGS FULL SIR Manning would top it off as well...

Janine Aitken said...

Your welcome Hillbilly, I would have snapped that photo regardless of which Mayroal hopeful it was, or any of the candidates sporting personalised cars, there a little wanky don't you think?

athena said...

I just don't think Thomas is a serious contender at all. He has been away from Cairns too long and a good proportion of people just wouldn't remember him. This election will come down to Shier and Manning. It is hard to predict, but I think Val will give Manning a good run, despite the fact Manning will be coddled and cosseted by Mackenzie and given the backing of King and Entsch etc. Val has been forced to work much harder in winning over the community thanks to the bullyboys, but this is paying off for her. She has been actively engaged in community activities, from festivals to sporting events. No matter how Mackenzie, King and The Cairns Post love up Manning and Cochrane, neither of these two will be able to connect with the community like Val has. Cochrane's only role in the election will be to shore up Manning's chances, nothing more. Despite her more considerable experience at Council, over Manning, Cochrane is also a victim of the raging misogynism which has been unleashed in Cairns by both King and Mackenzie. I hear everywhere people dismissing her as "Nanna" or "Grandma". (Yet no-one describes Manning, who is older than Cochrane and Schier as "Pops" or "Grandad".) It is doubtful that Cochrane is even aware of this. However even if she was, she is most definitely not the sort of woman to fight back against ageism or sexism.

I have lived in Cairns for 12 years now and haven't heard of Manning or Thomas before. Except for the pies. On the other hand, I have been out and about when things have been on and have seen Mayor Val Shier turn up at the lots of events. She seems to be everywhere and I have even met her. It's not like in the big cities where one doesn't get to meet the Lord Mayor. Margaret Cochrane just doesn't seem to have the look of a Mayor or the belief that she really cares for the progress by knocking back the entertainment building which would be fantastic for jobs and future community. I hear that she also approved the big development at Trinity Beach recently.

Liz said...

I agree with your observation that misognyism has been unleashed in the community, athena. Margaret Cochrane is unquestionably also affected by the promotion of this dreadful, ugly prejudice. I recall Gavin King hitting her with the demeaning, sexist "Granny" tag in his column and regrettably, it seems to have stuck.

athena said...

Thanks Liz. Interesting to see the under-representation of women in the LNP Government. It would be the smallest proportion of women in any Government in Australia today. It says a lot about the LNP and the misogynism of men like Gavin King and John Mackenzie.

How is great Grandad Manning going? He is so old that he will not survive a full time in office. He should be spending quality time with his great grand children. We not need an old fart running a modern city.

Anonymous said...

The rumour around town is that Manning, if elected, will stay in office for about 6 months, do a sickie, then Army mate and dictator Newman will put Byrne back in as Mayor. Could someone confirm to me how much input Byrne has in the Manning/Unity team?

Anonymous who posted at 29/3/12 16:33 was IAN THOMAS!! Hahahahahahah! Know his words and comments anywhere! Come April 29th, clear the Bruce Highway folks, for that white car plastered with his head to be high tailing it out of town and back to the Gold coast when he loses! He'll blame his lack of campaign funds...which he starts every conversation with, and the wankers and loonies online for ruining his campaign and destroying his chances of "saving us". No Ian Thomas, it's not lack of campaign funds or loonies online..you're just the biggest joke anyone could ever imagine for a mayoral candidate! We don't need you to save us...go back to the coast. They're welcome to you!

I can't believe that anyone in their right mind would even contemplate Ian Thomas as Mayor. The man is hideous and will use other and spit them out when it suits him. Would be worth another look at his time as owner of the Cairns Colonial Club. The man is a true low life
