Just a few minutes into the show, Cueball decided to comment on the financial report from the Reef Casino Trust - which reported a slight profit reduction for the quarter. MacKenzie's comment?
"We've now got all these Chinese people coming in, thank god we have. But the Chinese are known to be extremely astute when it comes to, ha ha, taking on the top casinos. . .so I hope they're all on their toes down there (at the Casino) . . because they're coming up on a tidal wave of professionals".

There can be no better explanation for the existence of this blog that this disgusting comment about our newly minted Chinese visitors. It won't be the crime that will drive the Chinese away from Cairns, it's this sick attitude of so-called community leaders like King and MacKenzie embodied in the service standards and welcome we show these people.
Anyone that's seen the Chinese families, the young couples, or the extended families that have formed the bulk of our new visitors could hardly imagine that these are a "tidal wave of professional" gamblers here to leave our casino in financial ruins.
It should also be noted that the reef killed its first Chinese tourist yesterday. Sadly a regular event for our city, regardless of ethnicity.
