A nice, 26 page booklet - the "Events Guide".
Seeing that the FNQ hillbillies in Cairns now are NEVER going to do anything about a new theater, they've rushed into the breach promoting all the events they'll be having in THEIR theatre(s)!
So what's happened to the Unity Team's PROMISE to quickly move forward on an alternative plan after their campaign of lies and hatred for the previous, completely funded proposal?
• Bob "Sleepy" Manning has been sitting on the report - finding out that his "alternative site" and scaling back has resulted in no cost savings - in fact a blowout to $150 Million!
• The Cairns Non-Regional Council has removed the head of the current Civic Theater, and gutted all marketing funding. This means that no one is out actively soliciting shows for our community which is already resulting in long dark periods in the theater.
• We are instead planning on two new sporting stadiums despite having no professional teams.
Bob Manning and his collection of dimwits tore up contracts for a new theater, and $100M in funding, on a whim and now have no clue of how to recover any shred of dignity for Cairns.
And on the CBD upgrade funding, Manning confirmed last week that any proposed works won't be done in time for the G-20 Finance Minister's Conference, but joked "maybe we'll have the work started so that they can see SOMETHING is happening here".
Bob, you're a fuckwit.
And with the media abandoning any pretense of being "local" to Cairns - the Cairns Post now clearly being run from Townsville, and even last night's "Seven Local News" report on the Cairns flying foxes being done by a reporter standing up IN TOWNSVILLE, is no one minding the store???
More soon. . . .
