This councillor confirmed that Manning is wandering around like a "stunned mullet", with his days filled with LNP and developer mates lined up outside his office like an upscale Centerlink office. These mates have included unemployed LNP rabble looking to sign on as assistant bootlickers at an appropriate rate of pay and super, including Robyn and Dennis Quick, along with Paul "MY KID DID IT" Freebody.

Entsch was said to be gobsmacked at how quickly Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King bent over to CanDo on the stripping of $38M in CBD rehab funds - hence Entsch's call to the Cairns Post and featured Saturday story. Two LNP MP'S for Cairns and they can't seem to even do one of these jobs right.
And everyone is being duped - as the price for Queensland Government bonds plummets and the international demand skyrockets, the so-called "huge deficit" is seen by the markets as normal spending for a high-growth state. There is plenty of money, dickheads. Stop drinking the kool-aid.
This new chatty councillor said many are scared at the voter backlash they'll receive if, as they're learning from staff as well as outside consultants, the cost of new 1100 seat theaters is typical at $100M. Perth built a 575 seat theater for almost $100M just a year ago. Some councillors realise they've been put in a huge ratbag, a typical "Catch-22", on the Entertainment Precinct. Councillors doing their own research are coming to the conclusion that they've been boxed into a corner - throwing away $100M of government money for the Entertainment Precinct, with a realisation that a new plan will come it at $100M or more WITHOUT any LNP money. And then Bob Manning's frightful statement on the Cueball show Friday, that council "will probably need to finance it from our balance sheet".
For the Hillbillies out there reading, this means:
THE RATEPAYERS WILL PAY THE WHOLE $100M COST!
YOU'VE EXCHANGED A PROJECT WITH $57M IN RATEPAYER FINANCE STARTING TWO YEARS FROM NOW WITH A $100M PROJECT PAYABLE STARTING NOW. ON A SITE COUNCIL DOESN'T OWN.
Manning and disUnity were elected on the typical, Tony Abbott, LNP "Just Say No" policy. Team members were told when they agreed to be part of the Team that Manning had plans "well in hand" to resolve these issues. They're now finding out that all he's got "in hand" is his flaccid pecker, and they're growing afraid of the looming day when voters get wise.
We're wise now, Cr. Blabby Your secret is safe with us.
