GAVIN KING, DESPERATE TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM HIS ABJECT FAILURES, TWEETS RATE CUTS AND IRONMAN FROM PARLIAMENT

WITH THE LOSS OF OVER $135M IN INFRASTRUCTURE
IT'S NOT CLEAR IF THIS IS BOB MANNING OR GAVIN
KING FIDDLING WHILE CAIRNS COLLAPSES
 
Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King, Cairns Member for MacKenzie, is clearly reeling from his Campbell Newman smack down on both the Entertainment Precinct (which King opposed, and then supported, before he was instructed to oppose it again) and the CBD rehabilitation, which King claimed during the campaign to be his "core issue" for Cairns.


King's even afraid of his radio soapbox now.  Tipped off by Cueball that the natives were baying for blood after losing their CBD dosh, King called in with a ten minute load of bullshit and then refused to take calls, saying "he had to get back to Parliament".  And what did he do there?


So disengaged and demoralised with his new job this arvo, a job where he now understands his views are worthless and ignored by his boss, visitors to the gallery noted King was more interested in playing with his Twitter account than listening to Newman, his own personal Judas.


The result is that the Member for MacKenzie's key Twitter communications today are "The Reserve Bank Rate Cut", and King's personal photos from the Cairns Ironman competition.  





How long before Can-do shoves that smartphone up King's smartarse?  And how long before he notices or cares?

Hey gobsnot, we're not interested in looking at iron men, even if you are so obviously titillated, how about you DO YOUR JOB AS THE REPRESENTATIVE FOR CAIRNS and get us back our $100 million. What about our Tier 1 classification for our Base Hospital hey? You're supposed to be representing us people in Cairns, not perving and salivating over male athletes in Parliament. You fuckwit.

Funny how Gav is now being hammered by his former employer the Cairns Post.It would be fun ( for someone with time on their hands) to dig through his old colums and apply his criticism and sarcasm to the current situation. People have put up with shit for years as far as local represention was concerned and are demanding action all over the place. So far all we got is talk and excuses. Wait till mass lay offs and cost cutting will start to bite, especially in the regions. It might stir up some Joh era protests and activism.

Christ, King must be the only ever Member for Cairns to lose us $100 million. The dickhead doesnt even seem to realise he is supposed to be in there screaming and ranting and demanding funding for us.

There may not be much ALP opposition to LNP in Parliament, but there is sure to be in the streets - it's already started and it looks like Queensland is about to become another Police State.

People with any sense of justice and fair play will move south of the border, like many did during the Joh Era. This will leave the dickheads behind.

A bit off topic but just showing the uselessness of Cairns Post reporters there is a headline in the online Compost stating the transit of Venus is on tonight. Probably will need a torch?

D.J.HUNT said...

I think we should thank the Member for Cairns for helping point out that there is now more than enough cost savings from this announcement for the Premier of Brisbane to return the dollars he cut from FNQ. If we were to take what the LNP claim is the crippling interest debt left by ALP on let's say $80 billion if the offical rate was 3.75% and has now been dropped to 3.50% doesn't that mean an interest saving of $200Million? Even worse case scenario if the banks only passed on half that drop, we still save $100Million. Either way, that would give us back the dollars from the CEP, bus station and axed CBH operating theatre and still have heaps left over.

Hillbilly, you forgot to mention that the eighth operating theatre at Cairns Base Hospital that Labor funded last June is losing it's funding. Gav says it is because Labor didn't fund it beyond 30 June 2012.

Er - I think Gav's LNP Ruling Party is now in government. It's an LNP budget, it's LNP responsibility.

Anonymous 10:50. In a sense the Compost is correct. Yesterday it was on tonight in America (American local time).

Argus Tuft said...

Ah, I think today it was on yesterday in America and tonight wherever you are its dark.

Re transit. It's true that it would be night time in the US and I see that they finally changed the headline, later in the day. But we aren't in America and neither is the Compost but I bet that's where the copy came from.

Gobsnot, King of Cairns and Member for Mackenzie, how about STANDING UP for Cairns instead of bending over at the waist ready to take it up the khyber pass from Newman??? Do you understand what your role is SUPPOSED to be gobsnot??? You're supposed to GET FUNDING for Cairns ytou fucken arselicking, pillow biting dickhead, not lose it.

Mz. Elly-May Clambutt said...

Gosh, alright boys, how about you cool it. Jeeez. You could describe King's behaviour in more acceptable terms and that is that King has lost us the greatest amount of funding ever. In fact it is unprecedented here in the Far North. He has already demonstrated he is an exceedingly poor, ineffective representative for Cairns. We need a mighty mouth in Parliament, not a whimperer.

ruby red dress said...

Hillbilly, perhaps you might like to delete those comments mentioned by Ms Elly-May! I agree, there is no need to launch personal attacks on King, but look closely at his precarious political position.
Newman has a large, unwieldy majority. In such a parliament, a rooky MP such as King has to find his position. He will be jockeying for favour with the Premier and Ministers with dozens of other equally ambitious MPs eager to retain their seats. In such an environment, it would be easy for a weak voice not to be heard, for a timorous MP to be overlooked, but alternately an overly aggressive MP may incur the wrath of the Premier and Cabinet. It would be an easy environment to make bad enemies very quickly. In short, it will be a very testing environment for a rooky MP. Very testing, especially if Newman is, like we suspect, as much a control freak that old Joh was.

Well said ruby red dress. Thanks for that insight into the culture of Parliament. Those are the type of astute comments I like to see in here. It is clear to see that King is a small fish swimming for his political survival in dangerous seas.

The world has gone mad. I heard Martin Tenni on the radio today publicly agreeing with Bryan Law.

And I agree with the above posters. Let's lay off the personal attacks, but concentrate on performance, policies and/or the lack of...

i support ruby in her request to remove the crude comments re king. they do nothing for the credibility of this site and go too far, we know king is a loser and will continue to provide faux pas to shoot his credibility down so lets keep the comments out of the gutter,hey.

jim-bob jnr. said...

Erm my apologies folks. I guess I got overemotional at the thought of us losing all that money. It was either spew out profanties or faint dead away with catetonic shock. Yeah ta for the insight there ruby. Our Gav is nothing but a sardine in a pool of sharks. I'm SMILIN now hey!!

And can we keep the homophobia out too please. We all know Mr King is heterosexual, and those suggesting otherwise ade using an implication of homosexuality as an insult. This is simply not acceptable in this day and age!

Liz said...

A very good analysis, ruby, of where King stands in Parliament. So we know he is a "sardine", we know Newman does not value him, nor the seat of Cairns. What about the $100 million? Have you really thought about that? Will it really have any impact on King's re-election chances? Consider what I have researched about Jim Turnour when he was the Federal Member:
In just three short years he achieved:-
* $ 8 million for Cairns first oncology and radiotherapy unit (Liz Plummer Centre)
* $50 million for James Cook DentaL School
* $ 5 million for GP SuperClinic at Edmonton
* $ 5 million for New Events Centre for Cooktown
*$150 million provided for upgrade of Bruce Highway, Southern approaches to Cairns.
$ 5 million towards Maritime Skill Training Centre in Cairns

As well as this, many school works were completed during Turnour's short tenure under the "stimulus" exercise.
Also funding was provided for extra community housing. (Remember the fuss at Bluewater??)

In all, Turnour won huge amounts of funding for vital infrastructure for Cairns and the Far North. Funding to the value of several hundred million.

He was a very effective and hard working member. Yet, did it help him retain his seat??? The LNP in their election campaign charged over and over that Turnour had "done nothing" and "achieved nothing".

Voters must have agreed because they happily voted Warren Entsch into office, who has in fact, achieved nothing in the way of funding for Cairns since his election.
I note that Entsch was the Federal Member for SIX YEARS prior to Turnour winning the seat. SIX YEARS in which Entsch did nothing to get adequate cancer facilities here in Cairns. Did people care??
Do the people at "The Cairns Post" who a dub him the matey matey, intimate "Wazza" care??

My point is, ruby, that winning elections no longer seems to be about what you achieve for your electorate. Give it a year or so, and after receiving a few crumbs from the Newman Government, people would have all forgotten about losing the $100 million.

Anonymous said...

Good on you Liz for pointing out what Turnour (The QUIET achiever) did in the 1st 3 years in Office and he was a new comer as well. Enstch had 11 years to fix the Bruce Highway and we're still waiting. Did he ever say "SORRY" to the Indigineous? I don't think so, and where is all his loud mouth support for the LGBT community following the withdrawal of funding for Healthy Communities by Newman & LNP resulting in 30 jobs lost. Where's Warren?

ruby said...

I hope you are wrong Liz, on your conclusions above. I would like to believe that people will remember King's personal role in losing the $100 million come the next election. Time will tell.

Liz at work said...

Anonymous, it was Turnour's commitment to funding the radiotherapy unit at the Base Hospital which swung my vote firmly in his direction. I just could not believe that, for a region with the population it has, Cairns was without basic cancer treatment facilities and people were having to go to Townsville or as far away as Brisbane for treatment. I had my clients tell me they had to wait for months before receiving radiotherapy. I was just gobsmacked! Were they aware how dangerous that is? Entsch had done nothing in all the years he was the Federal Member for cancer victims. With the soaring cancer rates, I found this omission utterly reprehensible and just unforgivable. It was also Jim Turnour who secured the M.R.I. unit for the Base Hospital. I am not always a Labor voter, however I voted for him and am pleased to say, I actually even met him! ALP people should feel proud to have had such a worthwhile representative. Jim may have been a small man, but he was easily, head and shoulders above Entsch!

T. Asquith said...

Well said Liz. I too lament the replacement of Jim Turnour for the lazy slothful Entsch. This man is a voluminous waste of oxygen let alone the huge tax payer funded parliamentary salary, and the big top-up of super. But, guess who appeals to the hill-billy bogans the most. What can you expect; Cairns is an intellectual wasteland.

ruby, you have hit the nail right on the head again, in your comments above, wherein you said something like, "an overly aggressive MP may incur the wrath of the Premier...". I believe King has already done just that and the incident was covered in a previous episode of "Hillbilly Watch". Newman flew to Cairns and loudly chastised King in his office. So, the situation is, yes we have an ineffectual Member of Parliament, a small fish in an ocean of sharks, but a small fish who may be actively disliked by a Premier who has the greatest powers ever in Australian political history.
