Bob "Screwdriver" Manning appeared on Seven News tonight, looking like a stunned mullet, a goddamned deer in the headlights.
He claims the withdrawal of $38 Million in CBD funding was like getting "hit by a bus". Keep in mind this dudding is on top of the $97.3 Million that will be jettisoned if Council doesn't affirm the existing contract with the state for the Entertainment Precinct.
Hey Bob, did you see who was driving the bus that hit you? Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King, with your LNP buddy "Can-Do" Campbell giving the orders.
Your LNP connections are worth bloody-nothing, Bob. They don't give a shit about you and your bloody mayorship. Get on the phone to Kevin "Hiding from the Pakis" Byrne, and find out what HE would do, because you're going to be cutting services with a meatax, with no way to fix the CBD or even build a kiddy park. And with a big rate rise on top of it.
And with the LNP ditching the almost-completed EP plans, and the almost-completed CBD plans, you're going to be starting both these consultations over again. Another $5 Million you're going to need to find, and then there's Entschy with his demands to cover the tennis courts & build a rectangular stadium. . . .
And believe me, there's another LNP bus with your name on it, Bob. I hear it revving up right now. . . .
