Who's running for mayor in the Unity Team? Bob Manning? Or Kevin Byrne and Cairns' own Faceless Men? Clearly Manning is showing he doesn't have a whit of intelligence as he's decided two days before the election to announce I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE ENTERTAINMENT PRECINCT!
In Unity's BigPolicyStatement issued just February 10, he lists Munro Martin Park and the Hartley Street sites as likely locations for the precinct.
These sites have been examined by THREE MAYORS and councils over 12 YEARS, and rejected. REJECTED BOB! ARE YOU FUCKING DEAF! CAN YOU NOT READ THE REPORTS??
He then suggests that if they can get the Ports North block adjacent to the Convention Centre (with the added $30M cost to the taxpayers to move Ports North offices, dickhead), he'll put a "boutique hotel" on the site as well.
Let's see, that will about about 900 car parking spaces Bob. That's another $60M that the taxpayers will be up for (you don't think your developer mates are going to pay for the parking at their "boutique hotel", do ya Bob?)
$90M in added cost - BEFORE WE DROP A BUCK ON THE THEATRE. What kind of shitty theatre is the UNITY TEAM and senile Bob Manning going to give Cairns?
If this is "Bob Manning's Vision", you need a fucking seeing eye dog, Bob. Fortunately, most in Cairns know you're not running the Unity Team, or your campaign, And the ratbags telling you what to say are destroying what little was left of your reputation. They'll be by to pick of your Order of Australia any day now. You don't deserve it, mate. Your ethics are well and truly in the dunny.
Gavin King has then done the unthinkable - he for the first time claimed that Campbell Newman has "made it clear they LNP government will not support a waterfront project". Apparently showing again that the LNP is going to to whatever they want to Far North Queensland, irrespective of whatever we have to say!
This is a stunning election manipulation by the state government! All from the big mouth of Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King!
The one caller inquired as to why there is no "integrity check" for candidates, including bankruptcies. Cueball quickly shouted out "don't mention any names" - and yet bigoted senile Martin Tenni offered his comments - including his statement that council rates have gone up 300% under the current council! Not one demurrer from the host despite the absurdity of this statement. The Cueball boys are in full hyperactivity today!
Also noted was that TWICE today John MacKenzie called Gavin - "Kevin". Gotta love when the truth slips out via old Freudian parapraxis.
