|CROCODILE HERMES "BIRKIN" BAG - LARGE |
ENOUGH TO HOLD A FULL DAY'S WORTH
OF WARREN ENTSCH FACT-VOMITUS
Asked about the Prime Minster's offer to look at funding for a new stadium for Townsville, Entsch flew out into orbit with his version of "the truth"
He said "we didn't agree with the concept of it, but we still wanted the performing arts centre, we still do. But they (meaning the federal government) took the funding away from us."
Not at all what happened there Skippy. It was *YOUR* LNP mates that reneged on a signed triparte contract with Cairns Regional Council and the Federal Government for the Cultural Precinct. They reneged, and then they took their budgeted $58 Million away from Cairns. An outcome supported BY YOU as well as the Member for MacKenzie, Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King. It was only after the LNP and Joh Bjelke Newman broke this triparte agreement did the feds rescind their $40M commitment.
Get a fucking mirror and take a good look at the culprit, mate.
Entsch then went on and on about why Cairns should get a stadium instead - because we're "building a business in sports and sports medicine". This despite the fact that Cairns, even heavily marketed, couldn't get any appreciable "sports business" just prior to the Sydney Olympics, or in conjunction with any other event. The Prime Minister knows that Warren Entsch hasn't got a bloody clue. She's putting money into a community that has plans and visionaries. Not a rudderless community run by no-hopers.
Entschy also claimed that a Hermes crocodile bag costs "$150,000", and claimed it was more evidence of 'primary producers getting dudded'. So why haven't our croc farms done anything to develop their own "luxury bag" business? They don't even do the high-value leather tanning work, both businesses that would produce REAL jobs for the region. Instead they're content with selling the raw materials at pennies on the dollar.
We wait patiently for Entsch's next bout of factual bulimia. As always we stand ready with a big hypodermic of reality.
