MP KING RESPONDS (KINDA) WITH UNAPPROVED DIATRIBE

READERS NOTE:  STORIES ABOUT DAVID JACKSON (AND HIS VARIOUS AKA'S) ARE BEING ATTACKED BY LAWYERS AND A PR FIRM WORKING FOR JACKSON.  

THE PR FIRM IS BURSTON-MARSTELLER.  THEY ARE TRYING TO MUSCLE GOOGLE INTO REMOVING ANY POSTS ABOUT MR. JACKSON AND "TEAM WILD".

=======================================


Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King is spending most of this afternoon on damage control as the Courier-Mail and ABC wade in to the David Jackson MacLeod/Team Wild affair.  Much of it is his usual cut-and-paste from LNP generated press releases.

However he's also gone off the reservation and lashed back against MP Curtis Pitt and attempted to defend his mate Jackson MacLeod.  His poorly written defence says:






Wonder when Jackson/MacLeod is going to front up and speak for himself.  Anxious to hear about his Nana, his fraud conviction, along with his former defacto from Freshwater, who's given us an earful. . .

I implore everone to have a look at King Gavin's FB page - don't like it for God sake - but have a look, its nearly as amusing as HBW , just not for the same reasons

Contract scandal and the media:
Courier Mail - tick
ABC - tick
Cairns Post - missing in action. They should get a journalist who isn't afraid to criticise politicians. They used to have one until recently but for some reason I can't recall his name ....

Pissed and Up For It doesn't deal with one fact, one issue of substance. But then again when you are promoting convicted con-men and arranging a fraudulent state contract, why would you?

Has Pitt referred King and Jackson to the Police or the CMC? What is the Premier's Dept doing about his rubbish. You can't trust the kid who is playing at Attorney General as he is balls deep in this corruption.

POlice should also interview the Selection Panel. I bet my bottom dollar they were pressured and one of them will speak out, maybe more.

All the not for profits need to take legal action to recoup cost of this fixed process since Newman has slashed all their funding. Limited funds can't be wasted on fixed circle jerks for LNP mates.

Also...King in his response has justified supporting a convicted fraudster as a person suitable to supervise juvenile offenders. Wow, that is a special kind of stupid. This goose is out of his depth.

How does someone with this kind of record get a Blue Card?

That is a good question CBD Warrior. Maybe this brings everything into perspective!

King is so weak, cannot take any responsibility at all. Sacking locals so he can gift foreign airliens. Makes me sick, sick sick. Now he blames Curtis Pitt for his own stupidity. What a total loser.

Gavin King "edits" his Facebook page like he is still an editor of a newspaper he used to promote himself. Surely CMC should be contacted.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know who engages the CMC to formally investigate this criminal activity?

Anon No. 4 said...

Rape Me I've Had a Glass of Wine complains about the use of Parliament to expose the obvious fraud he is involved in!

I can't think of a better or more responsible use of Parliamentary privilege than to protect taxpayers' funds from his attempts at misappropriation.

Especially when his other dodgy (LNP) mates have bought off the Cairns Post and are trying to nobble the CMC,

Safe Pathways won the tender at the end of the day, but bet David Re-Create Himself feels like a bit of a dill for throwing himself under the bus for the old Kingsta in many public debates and being an absolute pig to many Cairns residents for just stating their concerns and asking questions of KING (not of David Re-Create Himself)...David Re-Create Himself thought he would be a sure thing in securing government funds sucking up to the old Kingsta...you were always a puppet David Re-Create Yourself and surely your nana told you to have a good time but always respect yourself in the morning....

Mr Jackson has received funding from other government departments such as DEEWR. Continual funding from these departments are to ensure not only value for money but also depends on previous performance. These are called secured "outcomes" from previously held contracts. Outcomes are people that have successfully completed or been placed into a "stream" such as employment, completion of training etc. I would be interested to see if DEEWR and all other other funding bodies that have given 100s of thousands of tax payers money to David have completed effective audits on Team Wild to ensure both compliance and that each outcome claim is also substantiated by contacting these participants. With a history like his I would not be surprised if he manafactured evidence to substantiate these outcome payments and not only ripping of his grandma but also every tax payer in the country.

The Cairns community is now aware and government funders need to also be aware.

ruby said...

Look, I've worked for government departments and a public/private funded organisation. In the government departments, every stat was checked, double checked, there were yearly audits done by outside auditors, online checking, various reports demanded etc etc. In the public/private enterprise, we were scarcely able to get two or three public contacts a week, but the manager fudged the client stats, then would sit on the phone from 2pm to 5pm each afternoon phoning around the hierarchy, and telling lies about the "success" of the operation as well as selling herself big time with outrageous claims. It worked and funding continued without any real investigation being done as to the accuracy of the claims of success. Whenever I hear of "private contractd" or "outsourcing" now, I just shudder.

Jethro said...

Exactly, ruby. There is accountability built in to government departments whereas there isn't in the private sector.

I think we need another Fitzgerald -conspiracy to acquire Govt funding seems to be rife. I still find it hard to believe that Mr King was so taken in by this Mr Jackson that he virtually sponsored his (eventually unsuccessful) attempt at a lucrative Govt contract.
BTW by the tone and literacy displayed in previous comments I think we are tapping into the minds of some of those public servants who were sacked by Cando -they are most welcome and add value to the great HBW with their inside knowledge of the workings of Govt.

Bob R. said...

King seems to have acknowledged Jackson's murky past ie "People make mistakes, big and small, and the good ones change and use their experience for the common good...".
I wonder just how long King was aware of Jackson's fraud? I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't be making a mate out of someone with a background like that. In fact, I personally would be giving them a very wide berth, very wide.

Jethro said...

Anonymous 09.47, I suspect there are quite a few knowledgeable people now contributing to HBW which is why the blog is scaring the living beejesus out of the local boyos. Also it is obvious that HBW is receiving good information from outside sources.

People can change but this is cronyism and that is just not on.

A prediction: Nothing will happen. This is FNQ where nobody really cares and we are so far from the big smoke that it will fade from memory as the next big thing rears its head, like the billions to be spent on the airport. The Boyos are in charge now and all our screaming will be ignored and no heads will roll. Wanna bet anyone?

We do need another Fitzgerald, or even the old one -in fact Tony Fitzgerald has already expressed concerns about this Government, but to get a Fitzgerald Inquiry you need an Ahern, a man with the courage of his convictions. The last one, Dr Alex Douglas, just quit the LNP.

King is censorsing like no tomorrow. Then he makes out there is a valid reason but lies. He is not very bright and obviously uneducated. What a disaster for the town.

Anonymous said...

And amongst all of this, the poor excuse for a newspaper that Cairns has, has remained very quiet....not a squeak in fact! Different when it isn't one of their own being probed! Whatever happened to ethical journalism - not of course that King would know anything about that. This whole fiasco is just disgusting. As Derryn Hinch would say "Shame Gavin King, Shame!"

There is anger all over Queensland Anonymous 20.30. Queenslanders were warned about Newman, though, weren't they? Remember the creepy, crawly spider?? COME INTO MY WEB said the spider, and Queenslanders did.

New facebook site "gavin king this is what i want to tell you" has just started. Only 42 members at the moment and i guess a lot are like me....banned from his FB site and now have a site to tell him what we think of his pathetic attempt at being an MP. Will watch with interest to see how the membership grows and if the hard questions that HBW asks are on this site.

Anonymous said...



Gavin King is paranoid or what? Reds under the bed infiltrating his Facebook pages and they must all be exterminated. lol what a piss weak fool.

His old pathetic excuse to react to valid criticism was to abuse people for hiding behind fake or anon names. I will never forget when he outed a commenter on his blog by publishing their real name at Cairns Post instead of responding to the content, attacked the person. I hope that person sued the Cairns Post bigtime. Probably why they made it policy to use real names, two mistakes like that would be massive negligence.

So now people are using real names he has no coward way out so making up stories . Wow mental health issues or what.

Not fit to hold office.

Liz said...

I should imagine King is feeling beseiged at the moment. He knows the Premier and hoi polloi in the LNP don't care if he loses the seat of Cairns or not next election; Newman is not an easy person to work with, the LNP's popularity is nose diving faster than any elected government in Australian history, and the electorate is angry and vocal with their anger. I wonder if, in the quiet times at night, King reflects on the way he mocked, jeered and betlittled people in public office when he was a journalist? Now that he knows an MPs job is not plain sailing, would he now have a little more respect for their positions? I wonder.

Jethro said...

King is on a very steep learning curve Liz, that's for sure. Will he learn however that a politician's job is not an easy one, and in fact, one of the most difficult positions we have in todays demanding society? It remains to be seen.

I dare say HBW will cop an earful from Mackenzie when he gets back for this. YAWN.

Anonymous said...

It is likely WanKing will have some explaining to do soon. Some of the companies that were mislead by the governments tender process are planning to lodge a group case against the department.

Regardless of any waffle that Ding a Ling comes up with, the selection panel know the truth...

Give Me A Sling will have to explain how his convicted fraudster mate was positioned in the top 4 to secure millions of dollars

King is going ballistic with his usual fearmongering and lies, spruiking that Julia Gillard wants to privatise electricity assets. Gillard recanted on her original statement regarding privatisation, but King of course isn't telling this, the lying piece of scum he is.

Jethro said...

How low can King sink? He is now playing upon the ignorance of his hillbilly supporters to put the fear of God into them by stating that Julia Gillard is going to privatise electricity in Queensland? !!!!!Our electricity assets are owned by the State Government, not the Federal Government. How can the Federal Government sell off a state asset hey? What monstrous deceit by King. The man just continues to get worse and worse.

Anonymous said...

Jethro...is it a low act by the idiot King or is it just that he has no clue full stop. Maybe this is another example of what happens when he doesn't have a can screw prepared response.

wanking is at it again telling more lies on his fakebook and fishead is telling all how the wankers have cut unemployment in 6 months these fools realy believe their own spin gees we are in big trouble

Jethro said...

Anonymous 11.35, King has mastered the act of deceit and sophistry. His supporters would not know, for example, who owns the electricity assets in this State, just as they do not know what are the various functions of local, State or Federal Government. King is therefore able to manipulate them and the point is he does it successfully. When he writes that Julia Gillard is going to sell off all of Queensland's electricity assets, his supporters believe it.

Vi L. Schumm said...

King refers to a 'smear-laden speech' but has been unable to refute any of the points raised by Curtis Pitt. On the other hand, his refusal to invite Curtis Pitt in discussions about the future of Cairns on the grounds that 'you can't trust Labor politicians' implies that Pitt would leak commercial-in-confidence information. This is not just a smear, it's a libel.

Reminds your correspondent of Entsch's blanket smear of HBW contributors as 'vile scum', but without any refutation of the facts.

Anonymous said...


I followed the King thing with mouth wide open. I cannot believe, seriously CANNOT believe how much of a liar he is. Over and over he was given proof that Federal Government was not forcing them to sell assets, could not sell the electricity and yet he refused to be honest and admit he made an error or admit he was caught out trying to pull one over us.

Back in August when there was some differences of opinion on the matter within the Labor Party Gillard still maintained.. and I quote....

"On the matter of ownership of assets, that's a question for state governments and it's a question for the people that vote for those state governments," she said.

Also where does he get off treating members of the public the way he does, suich a childish wimp. I reckon some of them should sue.

Pathways advertising for a Boot camp program manager in today's cairns post! Hmmmmmm. So, they are the successful tender applicant and they don't already have a person to run it! How then did they explain that they were going to deliver a professional service to a specialist client group, when they obviously had no idea who that person would be. The government have said that the BC will be operational by January! That's clearly not going to happen! What a joke!

Well it looks like the selection panel have got it wrong! As it looks to me there were two main organisations that had the capacity to deliver the boot camp. It looks like one of the two organisations started a campaign against the other and now the commmunity has to pay for it with an operator that doesnt have the staff, a delivery location or a clue, well done cairns youth organisations I hope you are proud of yourselves. Better lock up my house, car, children its going to be a rough time ahead!
