MANNING-LED CAIRNS REGRESSION TO BOGAN-VILLE ALMOST COMPLETE WITH IDIOTIC FESTIVAL EVENT SCHEDULED

Cairns Mayor Bob "Sleepy" Manning beamed with pride yesterday as he posed for pictures to promote Cairns Festival.

And Manning's "signature event" has residents reeling!

It's called "FIELDS OF FIRE", and it's said to "reignite our agricultural past in a traditional cane burn supported by a raft of family friendly activities"

So the Cairns nonRegional Council and MP Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King stripped the festival of the biggest international event, the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair, while adding an event dedicated to arson and air pollution.  

"Family-friendly", to be sure.

The Canegrowers Australia proudly reports that the industry has turned away from the polluting blazes.    And they understand that the cane fire was a dangerous practice, with frequent occasions where they "got away".  The fires have been discontinued as farmers embraced green farming.

And the event is being held at the Yorkey's Knob site of Blazing Saddles, the Trout-family owned tourist operation.  Likely where you'll be able to meet the Member for Barron River along with his two criminally-convicted brothers who are often on site to pass along their "family-friendly" tips on heavy equipment acquisition.

Hey Hillbilly, you should save these spoofs for 1 April. And it was very clever giving your band the Hillbilly Goats a plug.

What's that? It's not a spoof? Then perhaps it's better not reported so we don't all die of shame!

The only thing missing is a wet T-Shirt competition, some dwarf throwing and cane toad races. Back to the 80's, yeah, Cairns people, that's what you voted for !

Uh oh Anonymous 16.40, the LNP have got another vote winner coming up. They're scaring the shit out of the bogans and rednecks with stories of hordes of Jihadists arriving in an armada and only Tony knows how to "turn back the boats." I dunno about you, but I reckon the bogans out there will suck this one up as well.

Bloody angry ratepayer said...

Just received my inflated rates notice. Nice to see we are paying more for nothing from this council. No CEP. No CBD improvement. Both major planned and costed projects for our city with allocated funding but turned down/lost by this disgraceful mayor and his unity flunkies. Why should the ratepayers of Cairns have to pay more for their incompetence? All we get are pointless ideas and stupid projects, none of which will never get off the ground.
In thirty years of paying rates in Cairns I have never seen a mayoral administration so ineffectual and useless!

Will council offices and libraries be supplying face masks, Ventolin and anti-histamines?

New council festivals replacing the arts include THE CAIRNS SUBURBAN PIG KILL, THE ANNUAL CROC SHOOT, SMACK THAT SNAKE and INNOVATIVE WAYS TO KILL FLYING FOX (environmentally friendly methods including solar voltaic electrocution not accepted.

Who can forget the disgusting campaign Mackenzie and Gavin King conducted trying to scuttle the Ukulele Festival just because the previous Mayor endorsed the idea? That was when Cairns underwent its lowest point, when all the rednecks were allowed to scream and rant and rave their hatred of anyone who liked music which they didn't. The sheer ugliness of it will stay with me forever.

No Cairns Indigenous Art Fair means that there will be plenty of empty hotel rooms in the CBD during our Festival Season. The CIAF was a huge draw card and created plenty of activity and business for our accommodation houses and restaurants. Thanks Gavein King and the LNP for withdrawing your financial support.

Where's the pie eating contest and the Ute surfing? Thank God we got rid of all that elitist stuff like theatre and art. There will be a scone baking competition for the little ladies to participate in, won't there? Crochet on display?

Isn't this a conflict of interest.A LNP council having an event at an LNP state members property,probably hosted by an LNP talk back program bogan.

Bazza said...

Anon 8.22 Also there will be Events NQ involved no doubt, owned by the mannings.

What is the Council (ie Ratepayers) paying Trout for the use of his land?

ruby said...

Uggggh. Of course, it's all about the LNP. This is probably a fund raiser for them. Pretty apt though isn't it. All slash and burn, burn, burn. Ginger the Red Heeler, I must point out that crochet is an art form in decline these days. There are not too many of us left who practise the art.

Anonymous said...

the CIAF organisers didn't even want CIAF to stay within the festival either!
Before the CIAF funding was cut to the the now dismal, '2013, CIAF farce event they paln to have, when you don't have a CIAF'. They (Arts Queensland and CIAF management) wanted to move their event dates so they would be a stand alone international drawcard...... and not being piggy backed on by the backwater, lack lustre, Manning/Cooper led Cairns Festival!

Wan kings head groupie steve green grass has a cupcake on his fakebook to celebrate the lnp birthday ,must be to share with all his lnp mates

The'new' Cairns Festival ??? A step back in time,
that's what the majority of you voted for. This council has NOT fulfilled its promises, has dragged this once vibrant city backwards. One can only hope that you all wake up to yourselves before the next election. Remember this is the Festival the council demanded.

jim-bob jnr said...

Christ of mighty, a fucken cane fire festival?? Typical of the LNP straight back to the 1960s when everyone whinged about the soot and ashes flying all over the city and cinders starting fires everywhere and ashmatics filling up the hospital. Oh and they want to bring back fucken Cracker Night too. We're living in a fucken time warp.

A festival for the bogan alright. Watching a fucken great dirty cane fire and jumping over all the toads and snakes and fleas coming out of the fire, and eating half raw, half charred pig. Yeah fucken good one. No wonder Manning is proud. Anyone care to remember what he said about the Ukulele Festival?

I stiil remember the vitality and momentum from last years Indigenous Arts festival. We had a house full of people from educational institutions around Australia teaching me about how valuable our home is to the world, what a loss. We need this wonderful event back, please!

The LNP are on a quantum leap backwards. Fancy re-introducing Cracker Night of all things. What a lurch back to the dark past that is. Now this cane fire and pig on a spit yukfest. It all fits in though doesn't it? They're sacking thousands of women around the State, putting thousands more on temporary contracts, have shut female community leaders up after their violent attacks on Val, Anna and Julia, so that we never hear a female voice anymore. Overlooking the Indigenous Art Festival is just another example of their inherent racism and retarded 1950s thinking. The LNP are a hideous party of dinosaurs. No wonder their popularity in Queensland is tanking.

Now now Anonymous, the LNP have Julie Asbestos Bishop and Sophie "I like sugar daddies" Mirabella as sterling examples of LNP womanhood. Gavin King was gushing himself towards an ejaculation over Julie Bishop when she visited Cairns recently. Yes the woman who was part of the legal team fighting the miners claim for compensation for asbestosis, is deeply admired by Gavin King. As for fish lips Mirabella, Im sure everyone has read of the legal case currently against her. The LNP women are as deeply flawed as the LNP men, cold, calculating and without the milk of human kindness or conscience.

Yep, Cairns circa 1950. Bring your own pig.....

Bishop and Mirabella are the only two women in Abbott's Shadow Cabinet. Says a lot doesn't it? Nuff said.

Tony Hillier said...

Bob R. don't forget the other Bishop ... that ghastly gargoyle of pallid putridity and right wing polemic, Bronwyn B, the opposition's Atilla The Hen.

Bob R. said...

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! Tony Hillier, you just mentioned something straight out of a Stephen King novel. I will be locking all the windows tonight and keeping the dog at the foot of the bed.

Exactly what does or has done the other Bishop. She gets up and the Speaker sits her down usually before she had ended her rave. What a waste of time. Oh she is Enstch standby when needed. It's a joke!
