GAVIN KING WOOS GOLD COAST BOGAN SOULMATE AS BOTH ELECTORATES TURN ON LNP

"NICE WORK SLAGGING OFF YOUR ELECTORATE".  
"YOU'VE HAD TOO MANY FREE LUNCHES ALREADY, YOU FAT BOGAN"
"STAND DOWN YA CLOWN"


These are just some of the vitriolic comments by Broadwater voters who are starting to discover the truth behind the 26 year old selected by the LNP for this seat.  The original candidate was dumped during the campaign when he was arrested for drink driving, and the first replacement was found to routinely attend "swinger's events", apparently not allowed in Newman's LNP.  Verity "Bogan" Barton was then scraped off the bottom of the LNP Gold Coast barrel.  And with apparent zero vetting, her public comments are now being seen as more evidence of the political gutter that Queensland has descended into.

Our own member for MacKenzie, Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King has however been silent on the growing list of ignorant comments made by Barton, in part because they are very similar to the King's comments on women, Chinese "ethnic clans, freaks, and weirdos", and his continued Facebook and Twitter blatherings.


However King has also been silent on critical "people" issues, with his silence now quickly eroding his public support from an election barely three months ago.


King has been conspicuously quiet on the LNP-hidden Trinity Inlet dredging report, the gutting of state money for the EP, the CBD, Cook Highway upgrades, and the Cairns Base Hospital.  Stripping vital funds from Tourism Queensland.  All issues that on which, before the election, he promised he wouldn't be silenced.  With the public around town this weekend beginning to refer to him as "Gave-In King".  And this past weekend, a huge outcry of shame has been directed at King for his silent support of LNP attacks on the most vulnerable in our community - the disabled and their carers.  Community ratbaggery at its lowest.   


In an attack led by Cairns Cr. Rob Pyne, King's been called out for his intellectual dishonesty and incompetence in withdrawing the promised $6.50 subsidy for wheelchair users of taxis, and now the refusal of Campbell Newman to participate in the Commonwealth National Disability scheme along with the conservative premiers in NSW and Victoria.




And alongside this indignity, we have the Member for Barron River Michael Trout, in a blatant conflict with his own and family business interests, demanding more State government money for horse vaccines.  Kick the disabled, but spend up big for the privately-owned horsey set.  It's like a bad dream.
"Hey dickhead, didn't you hear your boss Campbell?  We're broke, mate.  No borrowing more cash for horse welfare".  But Trout too has been silent on the abuse of the disabled in his electorate.  What a shameful situation!


Meanwhile, King, now enraptured by his new bigmouth soulmate Verity Barton, has rushed to "LIKE" her Facebook page, which is now filled with continual attacks by her now disenchanted electorate.  King is now mentoring her on "social media" management - which in both their cases requires liberal use of the "delete" button.  Both have remained silent as ordered by their LNP masters, while the disabled in their communities are the next victims of the Campbell Newman - the LNP Social Reengineering of our state government.  A reengineering built on the "huge lie" that Queensland finances are akin to Spain


It's clear what little soul Gavin King possessed as a journo has been sold-out on for $100K per year in LNP pieces of silver.

When a government starts a cost-cutting exercise by hitting the most vulnerable in society, you know you are dealing with a bunch of soulless bastards. Then, when our Can-Do premier, in an indulgent exercise of pure partisan political grandstanding, tries to sink the long-awaited national disability scheme, you realise that those who voted for him have plumbed the depths in their quest for a change

I saw the failed candidate for mulgrave bagging Curtis Pitt on who is to blame for deaths on the highway.The stupid women might care to note that at least 8 people have died in the 80 zone between Cannon Park and the Edmonton turn off on a divided road.Some were slaughted by careless divers, the others by not paying attention.We could have a divided expressway from here to Melb and people would still kill themselves and the innocent.

I hope that over the months and years some credible alternative candidates will emerge to take on the LNP stooges and Pauline Hanson wannabe's. There is no doubt that the Queensland electorate needed a major shake-up. However, once people start to get affected personally,and many will, they will realise what sort of state government they have elected. I think both major parties are deficient in many ways, especially in how they represent their electorates. There is a need for a third party, which is not totally Brisbane focused, to bring some balance.

Btw and off-topic; the "Cairns Global Tower" sign is still on the vacant land the CRC has just bought. The land was in the hand of the receivers , so I doubt that any of the former owners (or their estates) would have benefitted from the sale. The fact that a former mayor was involved in a proposed development on this block and the fact that the land has now been "snapped up" by CRC warrants disclosure of all facts surrounding the sale to the public. And why do we need another car park next to the one proposed on the old AP site ?

There is no doubt that it would be Dennis Quick that writes the letters to the Editor and puts it in his wifes name. Robyn is a very dutiful wife!!!

Gosh who could forget all those mawkish, syrupy pieces King wrote about people with major disabilities when he was Editor at large with The Cairns Post? I mean, fair dinkum, anyone would think he cared!! Now here he is kicking the boot into the disabled.

Met a public servant in town today who said they won't know until September if they have jobs or not. She said the stress of just not knowing is taking its toll and the office morale is at its lowest ebb.

ruby said...

It's timely again to point out that Newman and the LNP received almost 50% of the primary vote, in the greatest swing away from an incumbent Government ever in Australian history. One out of two people voted for Newman. Think about it. One out of two. These would be your relatives, your neighbours, public servants, teachers, the gay and lesbian community, the aged and disabled people. No-one stood over them with a gun threatening them with death on voting day. They did so willingly and because they passionately believed there was bad governance in this State. Because of the enormity of the swing, Newman and his Government will not be tossed out of office for several elections to come. We will have this Government for quite some time particularly if Katter's Party continues its role as an LNP bulwark.

T. Asquith said...

Good points Ruby, but was it a vote for the LNP or a vote against the ALP? Mute point you may say, but political capital can be quickly used up (eg: Kevin Rudd/Fed ALP). So no guarantee of several elections of returning the LNP, and certainly nothing charismatic about Newman (the reverse I would suggest). I think his huge majority and his misuse of it will likely be his undoing.

Anonymous said...

As T.Asquith says,people voted for the LNP not because of their policies but because they just didn't vote for Labour.A stuffed cane toad could have won the last election if it had stood for anything other than Labour, and I wouldn't count on the LNP being in for that many elections,unlike the pre 1990's,the people of Aust tend to blame everyone but themselves these days for their lot in life and take it out on pollies

The Newman Misogynist Moron Club are on facebook lamenting we spend $22 million on phone lines. What tossers. We quit paying for it and our phone bills go up idiots, the phone company sacks some people idiots so they go on centrelink idiots. So it could increase our cost of living, yet how much are the phone lines actually costing the man on the street now.? Diddly squat. I think it is great they get rid of this and stop propping up private business and spend it on health for eg but the tossers think it is sending them broke, it is helping the economy tossers. But if they feel giving handouts to business is a WASTE then maybe we stop negative gearing at last, fuel subsidies to miners and put an end to Newman golf course and race track spending. Then tourism lol, why discriminate on phone companies, poor darlings. That'll teach em.

All liberals are rude on social media these days becasue they are into hate politics.

ruby said...

T. Asquith, I take the viewpoint that people know what they are voting FOR. A person would have to be moronic not to know what type of Government and what policies they are voting for to put in place. To go along on election day and just vote a Government OUT without fully understanding what you are voting IN, is behaviour befitting an imbecile with the I.Q. of an ossified dog turd.

Anonymous said...

Sorry to say Ruby I know a few work colleagues(in the public service no less) who are those 'ossified dog turds' you mention. They did exactly that which both amazed and disappointed me as I thought they were more intelligent than that. Similarly for the local council elections. They proudly regurgitated the crap from the local media but did not have any real idea what would be replacing it and now quite possibly - them.

Anonymous said...

The thing about voting in a different party is that they haven't been found out to be liars yet. Anybody who thought about it knew Manning was telling porkies about the alternative site for the CEP.

Likewise with Newman saying there wouldn't be job cuts. They just don't think deep enough to know the consequences of their actions because they don't think it will impact on them. They're too busy blaming their current failings on the incumbents to care about who they'll blame future failings on.

Tony Hillier said...

Modern politicians (and all political parties) have limited scruples at the best of times. Their immorality knows no bounds at election time. They will say pretty well anything to gain power. We have witnessed that ad nauseam at all levels of government in recent years. They are all obsessed with spin, "meedya" management and toeing the party line, to the detriment of any values and principles they might have as individuals. Some good people have been corrupted by politics and the corridors of power.

Tegan said...

I'm inclined to agree with ruby. If you don't fully understand the policies of the Government you want to govern you and your family then you are either a fool or mentally challenged and frankly should have the vote taken off you.

T. Asquith said...

Ruby, surprised that you would not know that a sizeable percentage of the electorate ARE moronic when it comes to political choices. If it were not so, elections could not be 'influenced' by (eg) News Ltd, which decides to back the party which best suits it's own agenda.

Second Anonymous said...

Hey Ruby
If you did a survey of the people on the street you would find that many/most are ossified dog turds who can not name their local/state/federal member or differentiate between local/state/federal issues. They are riled up by commercial media but they don't really know or understand why why. Tony Abbott, Campbell Newman and Bob Katter are riled up as was Pauline Hanson - therefore they get the vote. The average punter doesn't know why they are angry but they vote for the angry candidate/leader because 'he/she says what I think'.

This is why politics and campaigns are so dumbed down.

T. Asquith said...

Presume, Tegan, that your comment is tongue in cheek. "Vote taken off you" by who? That's not democracy but totalitarism based on someone else's assessment of your ability to vote intelligently. A slippery slope indeed.

Pirra said...

I have been reading these comment and my girlfriend works for the State Goverment and she is going to loose her job and lose her house too because she has a morgage. She used to say she hated Anna Bligh over and over because Anna did nothing for the workers any more but I tryed to tell her that Anna gave her a good job in the Goverment which there wasnt any jobs like the kind she had in Cairns before. But she didnt listen. Then my girlfriend used to always say how she liked the gay guys and she agreed with gay marriage and all that but now Newman has cancelled it all. She voted for Gavin King because she reckoned he was cool and sexy and going to get all these things for Cairns. Well now she is loosing her job and her house and all her gay friends cant get married or anything. I cant feel sorry for her or anything because I tried to tell her but she is an idiot.

Sounds like your girlfriend just sucked up all the media spin, Pirra. Ultimately, people believe what they want to believe.

I see where The Brisbane Times is saying there will be 20,000 public service jobs to go but that the Government is keeping the final numbers of sackings from the people. I guess as ruby said above this is what people voted for. A government which sacks thousands of people affecting many more thousands of family members and keeps it quiet. The Brisbane Times also says that LNP members have been directed by the party to stymy debate and critical comments and blame it all on the previous Labor Government. I see where the LNP Government are now also deciding just who they are going to let into the public gallery to watch Pariament. Fiona Simpson the Speaker says that SUSPECTED demonstrators wont be allowed into Parliament House. Interesting isnt it?? SUSPECTED.

Jethro said...

jim-bob, by SUSPECTED, I believe they mean blacks, conservationists, feminists, unionis ts, ALP branch members, KAP members and all those sorts of people who might disagree with them. Sounds like the Queensland Parliament is becoming more and more Kremlin like every day. This is very serious stuff actually, very serious. I wonder if this Fiona Simpson has any idea of the history behind opening the proceedings of Parliament to the public or is she as dumb as dogs shit and ignorant of the great battles fought in the name of parliamentary democracy?

Anonymous said...

Fiona Simpson knows more about shoes and fashion than parliamentary history Jethro, thats why she is an LNP politician.

T. Asquith said...

Just a thought when watching ABC news tonight; the Newman LNP government has turned into a worker's horror story - much like when Federal Libs had control of both houses and power went to their head resulting in Howard's over-the-top Work-choices.
This has got to play well in Queensland for Federal Labor.

ruby said...

HILLBILLY - please look at the Brisbane Times article on the axeing of the main tuberculosis treatment center in Brisbane by the Newman Government. This is downright bloody scarey as it poses a real danger to all of us here in Queensland, particularly here in FNQ where there is a well known pathway of T.B. coming down from PNG. Can our own over-stretched hospital monitor and do all the follow up required to halt the spread of this awful disease?

Tony Hillier said...

Major Cando has been rapidly superseded by Major Conman, with a hide that any self respecting rhino would be glad to inhabit, and Major Slasher. The audacity of the man, actually blaming the public service for creating uncertainty in the workforce! He and his dunderhead ministers are palpably flying by the seat of their shiny pants as they write new policy on the run. And Queensland has become the 'state of suffering' rather than the 'smart state'. Will the last person out please turn out the lights!

Mz Elly-May said...

I saw that on the news tonight Tony Hillier. This is typical of how the LNP twist and warp facts around - blaming "rumours" of job losses on public servants. Do these LNP bastards understand how worried and frantic public servants are? Do these LNP pricks of mongrels understand that public servants are all in a state of extreme agitation over the possibility of losing their income, their homes, their way of life, and being relegated to the Centrelink queues??

ruby said...

Oh please, no sexist comments about women and shoes! We have had enough of that. Ms Elly-May, you are right, Fear has gripped the rank and file of the public service and has raced through departments like wildfire.

Lillian at Yorkeys said...

Yes, I think it's 'Slasher Newman' from now on. Not only the TB clinic in Briso axed, but also: $100,000 funding of the Environmental Defenders Office (they still have $100,000 in Federal funding; but if Gillard/Labour goes . . .); also the Residential Tenancy Authority (advising both tenants & landlords of rights & responsibilities); Sistas Inside (providing support, advocacy & legal advice to women in prison); also the biological testing unit in Townsville who run rests for aquaculture farms in the Far North [next testing station in Briso]; and of course, the Premier's Literary Award ($275,000 - presumably because Slasher is too busy dismantling useful/worthwhile agencies in Qld to read). Add on thousands of jobs, Slasher's refusal/reluctance on the Federal Disability Insurance Scheme. Also, I am not a news junkie - this is what I've picked up via some Compost, The Oz & a bit of ABC Radio. Heavens knows what else has been slashed.
Gavin King useless/powerless, Michael Trout M.I.A. (is he taking after Steve Wettenoballs - perhaps it's an effect of taking over SW's old office space?), and add in the fact that the Far North is useless in terms of electoral clout. Dark times ahead indeed. I think we're in for a bumpy ride.
I think we need to dust off our old protest gear, & get busy on those emails & phone calls & to exert what clout we possibly can. Possibly brink in Simon Sheikh of GetUp, or Crikey. Write letters & articles for 'The Australian", & see if the odd letter or comment can be squeezed into the Compost or their website. What else to do?
I have already started losing sleep over the situation, and paired with Boring Bob (Manning) & his No-Do lack of vision & foresight, bejesus. Also, as much as Federal Labour don't seem to be able to organise a pissup in a brewery properly, if Mad Abbot gets in at the next election, we will have the perfect trifecta of Evil Government.
And yes, moronic brain-dead zombies do vote (unfortunately), supported by the paltry efforts of commercial news, & crap newspapers like the Compost. Even the Courier Mail looks good against the Compost these days, & that's saying something for me.
However, it would seem that basic political education 101 is not being taught in schools - many people don't know the difference between Federal/State/Council responsibilities. I am not trying to denigrate teachers here, but I have met quite a few Gen X & Y's that have absolutely no idea. Mind you I've met quite a few oldies who have no idea either.
New Zealand is starting to look good! I believe the Bay of Islands is on the same latitude as Sydney, so it wouldn't be too cold up in the north. I could use a good night's sleep. Good luck to us all, & sincere condolences to those out there who have or will lose jobs. Hideous, just hideous.

Jen Leighton said...

I'm usually supportive of HBW's views, but wish to challenge him on his comments re M. Trout & Hendra virus. The virus is not a political entity - it is an extremely nasty, virulent number which has killed not only horses, but humans & a couple of dogs, very painfully, quickly & without remorse... So M. Trout's calls for a quick resolution in terms of a vaccine is positive, I reckon. However, I think a lot of vaccine labs are probably going as fast as they can on this one, so M. Trout's comments are really so much air floating about in the wind.

The amazing thing is that M. Trout HAS Spoken - I can't recall any issue or policy he has been involved in since he was elected. So, perhaps this is M. coming out of his shell. Who knows? I do know that Trout is a silly name, & one of those that could easily be changed by deed poll. With his current lack of clout, perhaps he could consider 'Michael Mouse' as a new moniker?

ruby said...

Good post Lillian. The Compost is actively excluding letters critical of Gavin King. I have tried to get a couple published about releasing the recommendations of the environmental report into dredging the Cairns Inlet, but The Cairns Post has refused to publish them. Mind, I did not abuse Gavin King, merely pointed out that the report was of high interest to the communiity and that many were waiting to hear the findings.

T. Asquith said...

Folks, have you read the article in Cairns Eye (4 Aug) by Andree Stephens? "Putting the brakes on generosity. Queensland is willing and able to give. It's government is not". Please do.
The Shakespearean quote; Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, is an apt description of Queensland under the new LNP regime.

Anonymous said...

Jen Leighton, I agree the Hendra virus is pretty grim and worthy of a vaccine. However Im also worried about the Newman Government abolishing the main T.B. centre in Brisbane. Tuberculosis was rife here in FNQ for many decades amongst both human and animal populations. It hasnt ever been completely eradicated and we just cannot afford to be complacent about this awful disease. It worries me that the LNP are not saying anything. I know that Gavin King is a "mexican" only having been here in the Far North for a few years and I wonder if he understands the gravity of the situation?

Jen Leighton said...

Well Anonymous 11.13, get on the email/telephone to Newman & Gavin King, Michael Trout eh? You're right about the TB aspect - it is still active in PNG, & for that reason needs to be monitored here. Treatment centre needs to remain in Far North, & abolishing the centre in Briso - ludicrous.

It only proves that Slasher Newman & crew know nothing about the Far North, & unfortunately, we're going to have to spend time to educate the mongrels, as they are here for the next 4 years. Well 3-and-a-half....
