VICE MAYOR MARGARET COCHRANE SHOCKS WITH COMMENTS ABOUT CAIRNS ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY

In her weekly 4CA self-promotion appearance, mayoral candidate Margaret Cochrane said something so abhorrent and shocking, I had to get a recording of the comment to ensure it is reported correctly.


When questioned by a caller who dislikes the large numbers of "street people" in Cairns "from the communities" (MacKenzie code for the Aboriginal communities in the Cape), Cochrane said: 


"The problem is these people come to Cairns, get a taste of the good life, and refuse to go back".


I view this comment as a "window into the soul" of this mayoral hopeful, and am disgusted on so many levels I have been gobsmacked all day.


After all, why would anyone want to go back to their hell holes on the Cape after living the "good life" on the streets in Munro Martin Park?


Not only can we not have a mayor with these deep-seated feelings towards our indigenous minority group, I'm not so keen on even having her around town.


I'm think I'm going to be sick now. . . .

Just saying "these people" is bad enough. Oh well they voted liberal up there so they make their bed.

As an aside to Cocky's carry ons, in support of the Cairns Entertainment Precinct, an action is planned for Monday 16th April at 8am at the proposed site on Wharf Street opposite the Cairns Convention Centre.

All supporters of the Precinct are asked to attend to make a strong statement.

What Hillbilly, do you live under a fucken rock, can't you see the crap that these ones coming here are causing, shit you listen to Johns show and read the cairns post, or are you just one of these shit stirrers that like to bag people that show a intrest in our city just for the hell of it. Instead of knocking why don't you give us your ideas on how to rid the crime in this city dick head.

Margie has always been about Margie. She only cares about herself and is only doing what she does for her own personal benefit. I can stll remember how she carried on when she was in charge at Junior Soccer. All about her and her selfishness.

It wasn't until Mayor Schier was elected that the Indigenous and Torres Island flags were flown at Council Chambers. Coming from down south where they are flown on many council/govt buildings I realised then how ignorant the Byrne Council was. M. Cochrane was one of them.

Cochrane is a vile toxic bitter person and deserves to rot away in retirement. I was also stunned by her words today.

"These people come to Cairns" - well, of course, if they are alcoholics and their community is "dry", of course they are going to look for where there is a constant stream of alcohol, and boy oh boy, look at all the alcohol outlets in Cairns! It's paradise for an alcoholic!
But what a stupid, thoughtless comment for Margaret Cochrane to make.

You're right Kay. Cairns is fucken paradise alright for the alcoholics (black and white). Liquor outlets all over the place, plenty of parks, its all they need. For the aboriginal alcoholic they dont want to go back to their dry communities and the people there sure as hell dont want them back. Dunno if the rate of alcoholism is dropping overall but there seem to be fewer homeless than there was in the 1990s.

Well spoken, Margaret. Unfortunately some people can't see the forest for the trees

They came, they saw, and they liked what they saw so they stayed. Just like me, you rancid racist cow.

Wonder how many liquor outlets Margaret has approved in her days in the Council. She helped cause the problem in making the city centre an alcoholic's haven. Still vote her back in again and she will keep on approving them, mostly in the poorer suburbs like Manoora, Manunda, Wesctourt. This woman has the social conscience of a weasel.

There is stong far right political movement in Cairns, perhaps even Queensland. The further we go to the right the higher the demand for a single identity. That means increase in racism but also sexism. The "white male" is a long held symbol of wealth and so the Margarets of this world will soon fall on their own sword. May have briefly worked for Pauline Hanson, but recall how quickly Howard stole both her thunder and her platform? Then they even sent her to jail. Women should not expect a position of influence in far right politics.

If paradise is living under a canvas in a swamp on Ray Jones Drive, what must normal life be like for them?
