It has culminated in a stupid and juvenile decision by Entsch to
deny leave to a Labor MP Michelle Rowland (in a system known a "pairing"), to care for a sick infant. Clearly showing his FNQ hillbilly misogynistic core to the Australian public. However when the ignorant decision was challenged, Entsch retreated to his well-worn use of bald-faced lying - not just to the public, but to his own party leaders, throwing both Tony Abbott and Christopher Pyne under the bus. Their only mistake was thinking that Entsch would tell THEM the truth.
Entch's response to being caught in a blizzard of lies??? He claimed it was "a Labor stunt".
The only cunning stunt in this story is Warren Entsch.
It's no wonder Entsch has failed to deliver anything of consequence to the Leichhardt electorate in his terms as MP. Former Labor MP Jim Turnour, sadly not the sharpest tool in the shed, still managed to deliver from his government more in infrastructure and other largess to Cairns in his ONE THREE YEAR TERM than Entsch has managed in some 20 years! Because even when part of government, Entsch was viewed with derision by his colleagues. No respect from your colleagues = no money for your electorate. We've paid for this ignoramus time and time again.
Entsch has made a mockery of Parliamentary Privilege, using the protection provided to run a "get square" against several Cairns bloggers including some who he believes are responsible for HBW. In a speech given to an empty chamber, Entsch claimed that one blogger would be "outed" in a court case by Google. The Google case proved just the opposite, and despite this exposed as another Entsch lie, he's incapable of either recognising the lie nor apologising for it.
Just this week Entsch has been hogging the free 4CA microphone, lying about the $40M given to the Schier Council for the Entertainment Precinct, lying about his support of the waterfront site, lying about even what kind of toothpaste he uses. And he has yet to answer for his time on the board of CEC Group Ltd., during the period leading up to their bankruptcy. Do former MP's get "a pass" from the ACCC on Trading While Insolvent investigations?
We support and join the now growing calls for Entsch to resign as an embarrassment to the LNP party and humanity at large. With Leichhardt a Liberal aberration in the Cairns Labor stronghold, an unresigned Entsch could easily lose to ALP candidate Billy Gordon.
