THE ILLOGIC OF JAMES JACKSON AND RAJ PATEL AS 4CA SINKS INTO IRRELEVANCE

Two of the key MacKenzie ranters were both given rope by Cueball MacKenzie on Tuesday's show.

First up was a hillbilly import from the USA, James Jackson who lives up in Koah.  Jackson was inserted in the show immediately following a "live read" commercial for Pacific Toyota.  His first comments were to praise "the best advertisers" on "the best talk show" with "the best callers".  He drooled over his apparent recent purchase of a used car at Pacific Toyota.  

Jackson, an American Cueball bootlicker, failed to note for the audience that Pacific Toyota is also a wholly-owned American dealership.  Is he being paid by the Yanks to spruik them?  Cash for comment again?

Jackson then made a plea for assistance to Barrier Reef Aviation, which has been shuttered by CASA for safety violations.  This followed an earlier rant by Minister for Blogs Warren Entsch who came dangerously close to defaming individuals in this CASA action.  Suffice to say no one with any detailed knowledge of this situation has come forward to explain why Barrier has been shut down.  We however prefer aviation safety issues to err on the side of caution.  Cairns and the Cape have had more than their share of fatal aviation accidents.

Then came Raj Patel in Edmonton.  He's frequently over the years been on a diatribe against the Cairns International Tennis Centre in the North Cairns recreational district.  The Tennis Centre was a project instigated by the Kevin Byrne council, and completed under Mayor Val Schier.  It has on several occasions hosted world-class tennis competitions, and is one part of the city's overall sports tourism strategy.  As a community tennis centre it's considered first rate, however with tennis a "faddish" sport that rises or falls on Australian success in the sport, all the city's tennis courts have had better days.

Raj Patel is known for "picking and choosing" facts while ignoring the larger arguments.  In this case he bludgeons the council for approving the centre and attacks Tennis Queensland for basically doing their job, promoting tennis.

In an unconfirmed charge Patel claims that the operator of the tennis centre is in liquidation.  

Patel claims that no feasibility study was done, then quotes a feasibility study that says tennis would be available at the centre 330 days a year!  He claims this is ludicrous, saying "anyone that lives in Cairns knows you can't play tennis half the year because of cyclones and the hot weather". 

What bullshit Raj!  People don't play tennis because of "hot weather"???   He then claims the location is the major problem, saying "if you live in Edmonton or Mt. Sheridan, why would you drive 45 minutes to North Cairns".



Then the real agenda of Raj Patel is revealed.  Netball.

Netball.  Basketball with all the fun removed.  Basketball for babies.  A game designed by women, for women who don't want to disturb their hairdoos or break a nail.  The stupidest fuck-all game imaginable.

Raj Patel then demands that the Tennis Centre should be converted to netball play.  Suddenly, the cyclones, hot weather, and 45 minute drive are moot if they could play netball there instead of tennis.

Raj, you're a joke.

Hillbilly, you disappoint me with your little rant against netball! It isn't a bad game for we women, (although I preferred to play vigoro or softball). Frankly, there isn't enough attention and media coverage of women's sports as it is, without having you scoffing as well. Shame on you!

CASA has issued to the company a 60 page notice of safety violations. CASA is not allowed to release this to the public, by law. Barrier has no such restriction. The company is the one covering-up, and instead using Entsch to "attack the messenger".

And it's no comfort when the community sees PR for Barrier now being handled by Andrew Griffiths. Griffiths and McKenzie were key in propping up CEC Group just prior to their collapse costing Cairns millions. Just seeing Griffiths at the presser yesterday makes the company look more guilty, not less.

I think you are being a bit harsh on netball too HBW. It is a very popular game . Anyway, while all these trivial matters fill up Mckenzie's talk fest, there is no mention of the stench of corruption engulfing the LNP. Just imagine the noise if Driscoll had been a Labor member of parliament. And what happened to the Boot Camp ? An embarrassing silence has descended on that project. Will anybody in FNQ, apart from HBW, start asking King and McKenzie the hard questions ? And shouldn't we concerned that the deputy mayor found time to personally introduce the deluded "Lord" Monckton to his audience at Croswell Hall when he was in town recently to entertain our local hillbillies. This fool was also given unlimited air time on McKenzie. Those who agreed were allowed to grovel and rant for ever. Those who didn't were dismissed quickly, as usual. Just heard someone have a go at 'asylum seekers'. Whatever your view on the issue, when you have callers talk about bloody "Pakis" you're crossing a line, yet again.

The Cueball show has so few listeners they would be best sated if they met at a coffee shop each day to participate in the daily rant - and thereby free up the radio spectrum for a more worthy program. I'm sure even Raj would drive 45 minutes to join his dysfunctional and disaffected peers.

Talk about pissing in MacKenzie's pocket!. That yank bloke didn't let up, was actually sickening the time he got talking bullshit. Friday 15 I was allowed one statement, "Lord Munckton was not a "Lord" but a fraud". The bastard cut me off immediately. Not even 10 seconds.

Raj,the septic,sorry the yank from Kuranda and of course mackenzie and co represent everything that is wrong in Cairns and in a greater extent,Australia today.If you are all f%$#@^&* experts on good governance then get off your miserable asses and run for government.As king is finding out daily,it is easy as pie to harp from the sidelines when you are just a nothing(2 bit journalist),get into office and you actually have to achieve something which "where is Warren" is still trying to achieve after two goes as a local member.Even the pillared last local labour fed member achieved more in one term than Warren has achieved.The yank from Kuranda shouldn't gripe to much however.His once empire that was the USA of a sinks daily into the mire of self pity,failed globilization and a dogma that he who doesn't understand the past is doomed to relive it.In less than 50 years the USA will be the laughing stock of the civilized world.

I think netball came before basketball didn't it?

I heard your comments johnno he has dealt with it numerous times. Debate him on global warming not what is on his passport. If you had made some good points to rebuttal his opinions and got cut off then fair enough, but don't whinge when you rang to be an ass.

Griffiths fed the media rubbish about CEC, probably trying to distract people from what was happening at the marketing professionals or was it oceanic marketing group or was it known as another name? Rule number 1 for success in business, change your business name and location as often as you can to hide from the truth. Barrier Aviation going from bad to terrible.

Tim flannery claimed that seQld would be in drought and never have full dams. Have you questioned how he got australian if the year?

Because he has more brains than you 20:53? If you put your mind to it and read books and stuff rather than listening to nutjobs like Bolt and Monckton you might gain an insight into the world of scientific evidence.

Johnno Nixon said...

Hey NO NAME,I didn't ring "to be an ass" I wanted his view on the MAUNA LOA OBSERVATORY which is the oldest climate monotering station on earth and why it says climate change is for real and what proof he says it isn't. I didn't get that far before I was cut off. The nut in question has been touring the world as a "Lord" when in fact he isn't and I wasn't about to call him one.

I like a good game of netball! In the olden days netball was renowned for conformist rules on ladies underwear! Nowadays I gather it's more casual however: " Team tops and skirts, shorts or skorts need to be in the same colour and you may want to go as far as specifying particular or netball knickers your team plays in." Beats V8's any day :-P

My wife hates netball.... personally I don't mind it, and have even considered asking the girls at work if I can have a go. Raj is a nutter whatever you think of netball though - that point could have been made without getting so many people offside.
