BEHIND THE SMILES, SEVERAL NEW DISUNITY TEAM COUNCILLORS WANT EXPENSIVE, RATEPAYER-FUNDED "GET SQUARE"

Bob "Screwdriver" Manning was all smiles today as the new Cairns Regional Council met for the first time today.  However reports of a stoush from a smaller "Unity Team" caucus meeting (that excluded several of the Unity Team "outsiders") has threatened to disrupt the facad√© of harmony.


It's reported Terry James, the #1 Kevin Byrne marionette and first in line for the big chair if Manning's health fails, has called for the sacking of several senior council managers including City Manager Lyn Russell, Water department manager Bruce Gardiner, general manager Linda Kirchner, and several other middle managers including one referred to as "the bitch that runs the library".  


We don't know who that might be.


When it was pointed out by a cooler Unity member that these managers had contracts, with big payout clauses, two councillors laughed and one said "all these lefty Aunty Val enablers have to go, no matter what the cost".


With a reported $22million cost attached to cancellation of the Entertainment Precinct, and millions more in management payouts, it's looking like Manning is starting behind a giant Kevin Byrne 8 Ball.

Good get rid of the lot, fucken useless leaches, thats why they were voted in so that we don't have to put up with any of Vals shit.

So it starts again, predictable as ever. It's never been about the quest to run a better, more efficient administration on behalf of ratepayer constituents. It's about ideology; the insatiable egos of small-minded men (mostly), and the settling of old scores. It's the DNA of the ever spiteful Unity group. What ever you may have thought about Val Shier, she displayed grace, tolerance and inclusiveness, to even those who didn't deserve it. We must watch this lot very carefully.

Manning would be behind this too.

Ross Parisi has pointed out a "get square" is underway with the bloggers, too including HBW.

Parisi says "Accountability and transparency applies to all". Since when, Ross?

Today they drop the term Unity..for the sake of Unity. roflmfao. They are all Liberals now, they can lose Richie on issues, the token Labor so they could fake apolitical, and replace with Brain. Now the question remains, is Cairns so stupid to fall for all this.

Hard place now for
"Unity" as they used the stupid vote to get elected but now will want to appease the business end of town. Business end of town want the CEP or another project of equal size.

4CA news yesterday refers to manning as "seasoned businessman"
Here we go the propaganda bullshit from the conservative side.
newman reminds me of Simon Says, he expects all of us to play the game even his field marshalls.

Dean said...

Saw Mackenzie rotting up Channel 7 news last night, made me sick.

The Unity Team, if they sack the CEP, has got off to a bad start. I'll wait until they make errors rather than worry about the behind the scenes nonsense.

Terry James is the leader of the group, Bob included. I'm not sure of his background, if anyone's got any info on him, it would be interesting.

Is it just me or has anyone else noted that since the local elections over two weeks ago the council has still functioned normally without mayors or councillors.The whole country could be run with administrators and we wouldn't notice the difference.

ruby red dress said...

It is one of the very worst aspects of so called modern democracy, that whenever there is a changing of of guard, they replace the public service heads or top administrators with their friends or party members. All political parties do it, and the consequences are always the same. We end up with a second rate public service or local government administration and the public suffer the consequences.

Jed Clambutt said...

Ross Parisi is correct. Hillbilly Watch is all we have to keep the bastards honest. If people aren't already aware that a huge scam is underway in Cairns, then the news that the rabid dogs are now sniffing out Hillbilly and its posters, should confirm the fact. There has been someone on one of the facebook chatroom sites, stirring up trouble for posters, resulting in an exodus of people from that site. The bad guys around town don't want anyone watching what they do. We might have to accept the fact that sooner or later we may have to meet in person, surreptitiously, at various locations around the city.

Mz. Elly-May Clambutt said...

Jed Clambutt is correct. "Hillbilly" is the only medium we have in which to subject those controlling the city to close scrutiny and accountability. I, too, have heard word of the harassment of posters on a facebook site, resulting in many leaving the discussion site for good. Apparently, what can happen there, is that someone can easily "take over" someone's comments, thus changing what they say, or a person can easily adopt someone's name and profile, and then post comments using that persons name and profile. "facebook" is not secure and the scoundrels have woken up to it and have slyly used it to cause mayhem.

What Manning's Council Team have to do now to honour their electioneering platform, is to send all $150 million Entertainment Precinct monies or whatever it was, back to the State and Federal Governments. Then they have to formally end all contracts for the E.P, and then, hand back all the land the Precinct was to have been built on, to the Ports Authority and have it dedicated for Ports use only. Lastly, they must look at building a new performing arts theatre because of the ongoing problems with the current one which is requiring more and more maintenace as it slowly deteriorates. Failure to build a new performing arts theatre, and remember, there have been calls for one, since the 1990s, could result in incidents at the Theatre involving injury or loss of life. A Class Action suit against the Manning Council, if this event happens, will cost ratepayers far more than any Entertainment Precinct. The onus is now on the Manning Council to build a new theatre with whatever money they have.

With Parisis could backfire. People have a right to privacy and by publishing the name of someone who owns a blog who does want their identity known, then they could be the ones sued, especially if a whistleblower. The right to have published claims challenged has zero to do with the identity of the author being published, that is nonsense. Everyone would be setting other people up if that simple. He can take legal action if he wishes agianst the website owner and then a judge will decide if an identity be revealed. person can request the post deleted. Name means nothing, he is just trying to bully. Just make sure information is factual and ID need never be known.

Anonymous said...

Last anonymous, you're quite accurate. I would guess the reason some are threatening to "out" the Hillbilly writer is that they know they can't get the identity broken thru the courts. The courts require evidence a tort has been committed. There's nothing like that here - what's been said here is far short of even what Michael Moore was sued by Alan Blake about. I am aware of who at least a couple of the "bleating hearts" are - one is a losing candidate for council who had convinced himself he was a shoe-in, only for the humorous and targeted blogs against him.

Rattling sabers works both ways.

Anonymous said...

The risk is also if they simply guess without getting ISP confirmation (need a court order). Then even if they are right, they cannot prove it, so could be sued for defamation. Have to prove your clains about people. Ross carries on about accountability and so true does work both ways.

ruby red dress said...

Bullying and intimidation have already started against bloggers and people posting, apart from just Michael Moore. See what Jed and Elly-May Clambutt (good nicks BTW) have written above. The bullyboys and shady thugs in the city cabal don't want any scrutiny or opposition to their plans and they are going to go the full mile to try and stop being exposed. It might be worth remembering..."All it takes for evil to flourish, is for good men (and women) to remain silent." We have a right to be here and we have a right to comment on the goings on in the city.

Liz said...

Well said ruby red dress. We have a right to free speech. After the extraordinary events Cairns has been through in the past few years, where there was a relentless war against the previous Mayor, where the Entertainment Precinct was turned into a weapon of war against the Mayor and the people of Cairns, most of us thinking people started getting suspicious. Sure, politics is all about getting bums in seats, and the LNP have done that. However, the continuing campaign against any opposition, what happened on facebook, and the hunt to expose Hillbilly, all point to murky motives. Some people are going to extraordinary lengths to try and silence potential opposition and even discussion. It is "hotting" up, as the saying goes. Something is definitely rotten in the state of Denmark, to quote Shakespeare.

Jethro Bogan said...

----"all lefty Aunty Val enablers have to go, no matter what the cost". What a disgusting, evil comment from our newly elected Councillors. Doesn't that show what sort of people they are? It doesn't surprise me at all. Some of the Councillors are relatively new "blow ins" to Cairns. We don't know anything about them or that they have ever done anything in the community except to help themselves. Yet, here they are now as community representatives earning huge money and having the power to sack people.

Anonymous said...

Just who is Jessie Richardson, where does she come from, what has she done for the community etc. Just a name on a team ticket and now our representative. My local butcher has done more for our community.

I doubt this story is correct, given only the Councillors on the Unity team would have been in the room how would this have gotten out?

Anonymous said...

Anonymous, another one is this Greg Fennell. Who is he? Does he know when and why the Council was asked to build a new performing arts theatre? Does he know when and why the Ports Authority ceased whole-scale dredging of the inlet? Does he know what the beach at Kewarra looked like 20 years ago?

Tony Hillier said...

The new council contains more dark horses than you'd find at a gymkhana. To extend the equine analogy, state parliament has more greenhorns and potential Fine Cottons than you'd find in a maiden plate at Doomben. Their dictatorial trainer, the hoarse whisperer Major Cando, will drive himself around the bend trying to keep them on the straight and narrow. It's only a matter of time before some start going off the rails.

The northern beaches south of Palm Cove are represented now by a car salesman and a real estate body corporate person. Two of the most untrusted careers regularly listed in popularity polls. Smooth sailing ahead.

Tony Hillier said...

And Cairns' state representation is in the hands of a tabloid journaloid ... the lowest of the low! Nuff said?

k. nevill said...

can someone in the know explain why dredging of the inlet was stopped by the port authority and when.

jim-bob bogan snr. said...

k. nevill, wholescale dredging of Trinity Inlet stopped sometime in the 1980s and the old Trinity Bay Dredge was taken out to one of the reefs and bombed by the RAAF. Dredging stopped largely because of the declaration of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park on World Heritage Listings, also the declaration of the Trinity Inlet Marine Park. Mouruilyan was set up to be the working port. Well, those are the facts as I understand them.
