Warren "Run for the Door" Entsch, this morning. Describing himself apparently, a local pollie living on public handouts and doing little in return.
"Team Wild" was said by "Phil" to be a program that has stopped young thugs and habitual juvenile offenders from reoffending. Terrific if true. But as they've apparently been operational for years and we've all been told we're in the midst of a "juvenile crime wave of epic proportions", why hasn't "Team Wild" been effective? And even more important, why all the hoopla today?
Then "Phil from White Rock" got to his point. He wants everyone to given Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King the message that tenders for juvenile boot camps should be given to this "local" company instead of outsiders! Apparently, big money is now being tossed around by the LNP to attack this so-called crime wave, and the "Team Wild" management today used the Cueball show to lobby for this cash.
And then even more suspiciously, we then got treated to an organised parade of calls from "single mums" and other failed parents who told tearful stories about sending their budding little crims to "Team Wild", and collecting mini-saints a few weeks later. Can you give me an "Amen".
Since callers only get on air after being vetted by Junelle McFright, it seems likely that the whole sorry episode was a set-up. A fraud. In other words, another normal day for the John MacKenzie show.
A ministerial team was recently at the Wangetti College site, apparently a frontrunner as one of the aboriginal boot camp sites. But when the government, either ALP or LNP, is proffering a pocketful of dosh, no tactic is too low to scoop it up.
Perhaps ol' Cueball can take some of that cash and see a doctor. He's sounded like he's coughing up a lung the last few days.
