"Everyone's angry about the so-called boot camp, which is no camp and will obviously have no boot. We're now seeing all the local members go silent as this catastrophe grows. Michael Trout says "he didn't know" about the location. Bullshit. Gavin King knew weeks ago, because he told me "in confidence". HBW exposed the issues and the Cairns Post does bugger all. Even Barry Neale is clearly incensed at getting dudded over.
So then MacKenzie gets Trouty on the horn, so he can talk about crocs. CROCS? We're talking about the boot camp! Crocs, another fuck-up by Trouty. I then called in and spoke to Jenelle, "I'd like to talk to Michael Trout while he's on the air." " About what," I'm asked? "About the boot camps". "Hold on, I'll tell John". I hold and hold, and then Trouty's gone. No questions about the boot camp from MacKenzie either, he gets a pass. The elephant in the room gets a pass!
The King's on. Call in, "I'd like to talk to Gavin about the boot camps. Hold on, I'll tell John". MacKenzie is giving King a free kick on the Member for Mulgrave, and schools for the handicapped. "Sorry, Gavin can't talk to you today".
What the fuck? I'm starting to see the light, Mr. HBW. Where's the open discussion?"
