Cueball MacKenzie continued this strategy during his weekly Channel Seven rant. In a report on the Unboot Uncamp dropped into a residential neighbourhood in Kuranda, MacKenzie never once breathed the names "Gavin King", or "Michael Trout", or "Jarrod Bleijie" despite the fact that they are responsible for this cock-up.
Instead came the new strategy - BLAME THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!
Continued implementation of environmental overlays? BLAME THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!
Crocs still here? BLAME THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!
Palm trees removed? KILL THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!
No dredging in the port? BLAME THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!
On last Friday, George Karagiannis got Greeked by Council as Terry James confirmed that Grafton Street was going to receive the same layout as MacLeod Street. This the judgement of the "public servants" and supported by the FACTS. Because you see, the real name for "public servants" is "governmental professionals". In this case, traffic engineers quietly and factually made their case and the Councillors have agreed. That's what PROFESSIONALS are for. Council overrules or disregards the recommendation of PROFESSIONALS at their own peril.
Even Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King jumped into the act, attacking the "public servants" at Council for taking a stand against his caffeine-addled idea to put a crappy-looking "Gateway to the Reef" sign at the gateway to a swimming pool. Even as he was attacking the "public servants" who recommended shit-canning the idea, Council was voting to shit-can the idea. That's what happens when you pretend you're the Mayor and fail to consult with anyone.
Then the stand-by callers jumped into the fray, with Martin "Psycho" Tenni (who now claims over 1000 crocs are now in the Barron River), insisting all the "communist, socialist" public servants hired by the ALP should be thrown out on their arse. Karin "Pearl Necklace" Pollard then started attacks on the lefties in the new Douglas Shire Council - even though there is NO DSC council yet!
Gavin King in particular is said to be especially prickly -

PUT KING AND TROUT INTO A POLLIE
It is becoming increasingly difficult to defend the local LNP members and do-nothing Cairns Non-Regional Council as the problems continue to grow and fester. King and Trout have already gone to ground while Council sends talking puppets out to speak to the media.
And it would look like the exodus of local news is continuing, with the 4CA newsreader today reporting a school fire in "Makins Beach".
