LNP INSIDER DAVID MARRINER OUSTED BY CHINESE FROM SHERATON MIRAGE - SOMETHING WE TOLD YOU OCTOBER 25, 2012


OUT ON HIS ARSE
Mainland Chinese company Nanjing Fullshare Group (Nanjing Fullshare Australia Pty. Ltd.) are in total control of the Port Douglas Sheraton Mirage Hotel - despite misleading statements in the Cairns Post that seem to indicate convicted environmental vandal David Marriner is still part owner.

Hillbilly Watch reported Mirage plans would not move forward with Marriner involved on October 25, 2012.  Marriner's intransigence has stalled the refurbishment of this icon for years, and even Minister for Blogs Warren Entsch has been disgusted with his stubbornness.  Entsch, you'll recall, had been spruiking for federal and state gifts of $36M to Marriner, even dragging a clearly unwilling Joe Hockey along to a promotional meeting.  

Management at Nanjing Fullshare Group have been advised to complete their plans ASAP so that they can be rammed thru a compliant Cairns nonRegional Council before the breakup with Douglas Shire, who have been portrayed as "dominated by obstructionist greenies". . . .before a vote on a new council is even taken!

We're currently investigating Nanjing Fullshare. . . .more soon.

Well done HBW. Definately on the money here. I think the Member for Blogs, Warren Stench is both a giant ball of gass and a falling star. The only thing he has ever starred at is getting his endorsement and re-endorsement from the Liberal Party. Now that he is a fallen star there are those in the Liberal Party as opposed to the LNP asking who it was that supported his re-endorsement. To those in control of the Liberal Party in Canberra, Stench is well and truly a bad smell.

That David Marriner is very good looking - sigh !

Can HBW provide analysis of Labor's decision to preselect 11 seats for the next QLD election? Why choose Cook and not Cairns? I understand internal polling shows Labor is only a chance to boot Kempton out, not King or Trout. Is that true?? Please say it isn't it as we need King booted out!

Anonymous said...

make no mistake about it king will go as well as kempton, maybe trout Rob Pyne if preselected will gain a swing of about 6 to 7 % which will roll king

Anonymous said...

Anonymous, expressions of interest from potential ALP candidates have been called for only 11 State seats at this time. Expressions of interest for the other electorates will be called in the New Year. Rest assured, all seats will be contested.

I hate to say it but Labor needs someone who is neither female or Indigenous to stand locally -just look at the encumbents -white/middle aged/and male. This red-neck electorate needs someone strong who can stand up to the racist/mysogs -any suggestions?? God help us all.

A better man for Cairns you will not find.
Wakey wakey wakey !!!
Cairns needs Alan Blakey !!!

Pyne has no chance against King. Sorry, but that's the cold reality. Labor should go with someone less...toxic than Pyne.

I think Rob has a wheely good chance at beating Gayvin King.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Well done Anon 13:34. We need to fight against racists and misogynists by not even allowing anyone who is not a white male to enter the race. How we changed the world - not.

Earlville voter said...

What??? Pyne, toxic?? Are you on drugs or trying to be funny, Anonymous 19.48?? Is this you, Grasso? Huh? Just who was bloody toxic, who polarised this city like never before with his vitriolic columns week after week in The Cairns Post and having Mackenzie spew bile and hate week after week, month after month, year after year on his crap radio program? Just WHO was the unprecedented TOXIC influence in this city, hey?? Don't shit us off with your lies. By direct comparison, Rob Pyne is a UNIFYING personality, a person who connects others and who has earned community respect and demonstrated solid leadership.

Siobhan said...

Ginger The RedHeeler, the radio and print shock jocks with their hate propaganda have damaged women's chances at community leadership. Gavin King, John Mackenzie here in Cairns both played a big part in exposing and promoting misogynism. The LNP are very quick on the uptake if you try and defend women with screaming allegations of misandry, homosexuality. whatever. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. That is what the LNP use. Women versus men, blacks versus whites, Christians versus Muslims, conservatives versus progressives, environmentalists versus developers, on and on it goes. Division, antagonism, polarisation. This is their style of politics. They have adopted the style of America's Tea Party, the politics of antagonism and hate. Putting a female candidate up will only see the LNP once again use the same ugly sexist attacks they used on Val Schier to ridicule and humiliate.

Anonymous said...

Hey Ginger you missed my point completely(anon 14.34). Look at the landscape Federally and locally and see what has happened to all those great women we had as leaders -from Val to Anna and Julia -living here you get to understand the local culture and it is not pretty. Putting up a very young woman and then an indigenous man that hardly anyone knew, was never going to work for Labor in this town, regardless of these candidates known qualities. We need to play the LNP at their own game and beat them with someone who is high-profile and known by a wider section of the community -it worked for King didn't it? I would love to see someone like Dawn Casey as our local rep! What do you reckon Ginger?

Anonymous said...

Well said there Siobhan. I see where the LNP's equal in the USA, the Republican Party or GOP as they call themselves has mocked Hilary Clinton for having "small breasts and fat thighs". This is what the extreme conservative parties do. Woman bashing is only undertaken by the LNP in Australia. Notice how that woman Ikin who stood for Kennedy as an LNP candidate in the last Federal Election was not attacked and demonised for having a vagina. However had she stood for the ALP she would have been ridiculed, mocked, jeered at and subjected to filthy sexist taunts by the LNP, Mackenzie, King and every other LNP personality. Entsch would have given her the "treatment" as well.

Observer said...

Anonymous 10.01, had she won the seat she would have been mocked and jeered at by her male colleagues behind her back anyway. Probably pushed sideways out of the seat at the next election as well.

Q. So who calls Tony Abbott "WINGNUTS"?

A. Labor trolls, that's who.

Anonymous said...

Abbott is known as "the mad Monk" amongst Laborites, Anonymous 19.01. "Wingnuts" is an Americanism.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Thanks Anon and Siobhan. I understand the point but I still think your tactics will contribute to the problem rather than solve it.

You suggest the way to change the redneck ideology of hating women and Indigenous people is to contribute to that ideology by only offering redneck icons for the vote. Apparently these sleeper agents are supposed to come over all Gavin Kingy until they are voted in when they are supposed to leap up and protect women and minority populations.

Until they are saved by the honourable White (presumably Straight) Man, women and Blacks should just shut up and not be seen in public in case the rednecks don't react well to them. How is this different from the idea that a rape victim is to blame for his/her own attack because they would have been perfectly safe if they never left the house without a burka and a male relative?

If we are to overthrow the return to 19th century philosophy we need to fight against the shock jocks and morons - not join them. The hatred that has been shown by Australians to female politicians because of their gender not their actions is inexcusable and must be fought tooth and claw. If we allow this Neandertal thinking to direct the gender and/or colour of the candidates we put forward we have handed the Troglodytes the game, set and match.

Anonymous said...

Hi Ginger -getting to know you! I mentioned Dawn Casey for a reason -if available and of Labor persuasion, she would be an excellent candidate -Google her if you don't know who she is.
I would love to think that we could fight back against the shock jocks and the Murdoch press but I can't see that happening here in good old FNQ which is turning out to be the Redneck capitol of Aus.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Anon, here's where we do agree! ;-) Unfortunately, I think the rest of Aus is quickly catching up in the backwards redneck stakes.

BOB R. said...

Ginger TheRedHeeler, the Labor Party is an inclusive party with a deeply cherished value of equality for all which is why it stands women, indigenous, and handicapped people as candidates. If people have the ability to be a representative, then that is what matters, not that they must have gonads and a penis. I understand what you are saying, about the need to stand up to the misogynistic white male dominated LNP, to demonstrate to the public that there are HUGE differences between the two major political parties in Australia. That the ALP is committed to equality and a fairer Australia, the LNP is committed to preserving the elite. I understand that. However, if we stood this lady, this Dawn Casey (and no I don't know her), I fear she would be persecuted by the likes of King, Mackenzie and the rest of the LNP. Kirsten Lesina was publicly mocked, jeered and made to appear a simpleton when she suggested the Cairns Base Hospital change its name during the last election campaign. Remember? However when the LNP dominated Hospital Board decided to change the name, there was no outcry. What happened to Val Schier was totally unprecedented in that it was an all out assault which commenced the Monday following her election until three years later at the election where she was defeated. Do we put another woman through this again? Do we want to see another woman being subjected to John Mackenzie's voice thickened with hate and malice spewing poison every day, with old male rednecks phoning up and making thinly veiled threats? If a woman defeats King, what do you think he will do to her if he regains a newspaper job? You know as well as I do that he will start mocking, ridiculing and demonising her from the day he starts writing. He and Mackenzie will distort and misrepresent what she says, they will tell outright lies like they did about the sale of the Cairns airport. She won't be allowed to appear on the Mackenzie show or to have her media releases published in The Cairns Post. She will have the easily emotionally stirred up rednecks accost her in the street, and phone her with abusive calls. NO, Ginger The Redheeler, the time is not right to stand an ALP female candidate. The LNP have unleashed a savagery upon women. I don't want to put women through that. Perhaps in a few years time.

Cough cough !!

The only thing the Labor Party stands for is Union funds corruption, piss poor financial management and a very immature attitude to world affairs.

That's why most countries these day have strong and valued Tory party representatives.
Oh! except the good ol' US of A.

Haha

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Thanks Bob R.

So, for their own safety, women should be kept in the kitchen until men decide the time is right for them to be allowed out in public? But it is the LNP who are anti-women? Thanks for clearing that up.

"the Labor Party is an inclusive party with a deeply cherished value of equality for all". So, this explains the offensive use of gay people to win votes from the coalition from Julia Gillard's 'we need to follow the bible just because' to Kevin Rudd's 'equality epiphany' just before the election? Remind me again, Bob, which political party extended and expanded the NT intervention against the evidence of harm to Aboriginal people.

It would be great if you could please explain to me how watering down the mining super profits tax and otherwise being pro big business against 'the workers' is an example of the Labor Party being committed to equality and a fairer Australia. I'm not trying to be contrary but I hear these words from Labor media releases a lot. To me they do not seem to reflect Labor actions.

Bob R. said...

GingerTheRedHeeler, I have no idea what you are talking about "the offensive use of gay people...". Gillard is an atheist and would not quote the Bible, so I don't know where you dreamed that one up. Rudd changed his mind after being lobbied by gay members of the ALP and the community.
It was the Labor Party who introduced Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action and the Anti Discrimination Legislation, so despite your bitterness and obvious bias against Labor, Labor has demonstrated its belief in equality.
As for Federal Intervention in the NT, it was the NT Government which bunged on a turn about keeping the intervention going.
I don't know what you mean about Labor being the "big business party". It wasn't Labor which wanted to introduce Work Choices and it isn't a Labor State Government wiping out workers compensation entitlements. It isn't Labor talking about abolishing a minimum wage either.
As for wanting to protect women from the savagery of the LNP, while you scoff and scorn at our male chivalry, many of us just don't like to see women treated like dirt and bearing the brunt of male double standards.

Anonymous said...

It certainly isn't Labor sacking tens of thousands of Queensland workers either, most of whom are women in nursing, aged care and administrative positions. Women are bearing the brunt of Newman's austerity measures.

Observer said...

Rainbow Labor spent considerable energy into lobbying Rudd and others during the election campaign.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Bob R, It was only two years ago: "JULIA Gillard …indicating she will oppose ... gay marriage laws and that she believes it is important for people to understand the Bible- despite the fact she is an atheist....Declaring there were some important things from our past that need to continue to be part of our present and part of our future", her view was that the Marriage Act - and marriage being between a man and woman - "has a special status". Ms Gillard said it was important for people to understand their Bible stories " what comes from the Bible has formed such an important part of our culture" [http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/julia-gillard-makes-stand-as-a-social-conservative/story-]

Since 2011 gay Australians had to put up with the government (including Penny Wong) publicly expressing their support for Howard's change of the marriage act to officially make gay people second class citizens, then they had to put up with the 'yes we'll have a conscience vote but only because we know it won't win’, then just a few months out from the unwinnable election the new/old PM had a road to Damascus moment where God told him that gay people were human like the rest of us. This occurred at a time conveniently early enough to win a few lefty votes but not so early he actually had to do something about it. In contrast, one Labor faction, Rainbow Labor, has been selling bumper stickers and supporting equality. Tell me how gay people are not supposed to feel offended!

The NT government is able to push around the Feds? Wow, this is something I didn't know before. It also seems to contradict the journalism of the last few years but never mind. "There are signs the continuation of the NT intervention is pushing some Indigenous communities to abandon support for Labor ... its decision to extent by a decade the Howard government's intervention into Aboriginal community... The emergency response was meant to boost the safety, health and education of indigenous children, but a billion dollars later there's evidence conditions in some communities have worsened..." [http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2012/s3545863.htm 13/7/2012] That Lateline is obviously just a front for the Liberal Party.

I did not call Labor "the" big business party; I said that they were "pro" big business. It seems I am not the only person who thinks so: "This [election] result should not be read as an endorsement of the Coalition... but rather as a way to punish the ALP who they regarded as betraying their interests …The fact that billions of dollars in corporate subsidies were dolled out, while cuts were made to things like welfare payments and education funding, did not go unnoticed. The ineffectual mining tax, which allowed big miners to continue to rake in super-profits, and the carbon tax that did nothing to reduce carbon emissions only added insult to injury. There is no doubt that factional infighting within the ALP contributed ... but if the government was genuinely progressive – and was delivering real reforms for ordinary people – it wouldn’t have mattered who the leader was...The crisis in the party stems from the fact that it has transformed into a big business party but still relies on the votes of working people to stay in office." [http://www.socialistpartyaustralia.org/archives/5795 10/9/2013]

"Chivalry ... protect women". Great to see 21st century policy is not based on support for all humans regardless of gender/ethnicity and merit based promotion but still on protecting the little women coz we know what is best for them - regardless of what they want for themselves. ‘Double standards’??

Contrary to your opinion I am not biased against Labor, I am just, like many others, sick of 7 years of listening to them spout the same lefty socialist policies (which I quite support) while their actions move so far to the right Tony Abbott has had to come up on the Left of Labor on key issues like paid parental leave.

Bob R. said...

Well GingerTheRedHeeler, you "punished" Labor alright and no doubt you are celebrating with champagne and feeling right royal proud of yourself now that Abbott is going to challenge the ACT on gay marriage. You helped put him there, so don't spruik insincere lies for marriage rights. You "punished" Labor alright in the State Election, without a thought as to what you were voting in. I hope you are satisfied with what you have done. I see where your "punishing the Labor Party" continues to see people losing their jobs day after day. 11 more from Ergon Energy here today, and when 38 TAFE colleges close down, there will be hundreds more out of work.
You are a real piece of work, aren't you? You actually have the brazen cold hearted audacity to boast about "punishing Labor". Take your cat piss and venom and choke on it. Your jeering spitefulness is just disgusting.

NYM said...

Wow, so we actually have someone with the dubious nick of "GingerTheRedHeeler" boasting of how they PUNISHED Labor. Well, well, well. Actually boasting of it. I wonder if Ginger would like to meet some of the workers who have lost their jobs thanks to dickheads who PUNISHED Labor? I guarantee we would all see Ginger scarpering away, tail between his or her legs, like a rocket. I must say, very interesting contribution from Ginger. Someone who gloats about punishing Labor with obvious relish, glee and oozing with spite and malice. In other words, a dyed in the wool Tory who is getting off on gloating.

Anonymous said...

So Ginger whatever no doubt you must be very pleased with what your man in Canberra is doing now with the same sex marriage issue? Ditto very pleased that your man in Canberra has given only one woman a cabinet position? Nice to see you dismiss Disability Care so contemptuously. You can be real pleased your man in Canberra wont introduce education reforms or an affordable, accessible national broadband network either. Oh and your man in Canberra looks like axeing the dole for under 30 year olds as well.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Wow, interesting reactions to quoting other people's articles and including website references - from far right (The Australian) to far left (The Socialists).

Not allowed to criticise Labor at all - otherwise you are automatically a dyed-in-the-wool Abbott fan and evil fascist.

FYI for those who can't/don't read well: The Australian Socialists said workers were punishing the Labor Party - at no point did I say I had voted for Tony Abbott or in any way supported the odious, lying, theiving cretin. In fact, if you re-read my last bit you will see I freely admitted to supporting "lefty socialist policies". Nor did I say it was a sensible voting practise to 'punish' someone by voting in someone even worse.

BUT we don't have to praise Stalin just because Hitler is even worse (yes, I know I just broke Godwin's Law).

P.S. NYM, Curious as to why you think Ginger is dubious.

NYM said...

Someone has said this before making the point on this blog, that the last State Election was to "punish Labor". If so, then it is an ugly indictment on our democracy that people vote a government out without thinking what they are voting in. GingerTheRedHeeler has just given us a rare, personal insight into the thinking of these voters, angry as all hell with Labor but putting no thoughts whatsoever, none of any kind into thinking about what policies the LNP have. I suspect people like GingerTheRedHeeler will take their disillusionment with Labor and look at parties such as KAP and Palmer's Party, Family First etc, parties which cannot win government in their own right, but in Queensland have ensured that Newman runs with scarcely any political opposition and therefore no accountability. GingerTheRedHeeler reflects many Australians who could make meaningful contributions to the Australian political dialogue, but instead choose to live out their lives on the sidelines chasing minor parties which come and go on the political scene with regular monotony. Such is life.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Yes NYM indeed. You can make assumptions about who I did or am likely to vote for by totally disregarding everything I actually said.

As much as I agree with you about the pointlessness of voting for parties with no policies like Palmers or, even worse, parties with nasty policies like (so-called) Family First, I'm not sure you are making any more "meaningful contributions to Australian political dialogue" by not allowing any actual dialogue but blindly repeating a party's mantra that they have almost completely dumped in actual practise. It is actually possible to support the Labor Party (or any other party) but still fight for them to get back to the values that people liked about them in the first place. If you support any political party without disagreeing with a single policy or action of the last decade then I think it is you who may need to work on your contribution to political dialogue - but what do I know? I have obviously posted huge screeds on this blog, not because I am interested in ideas or my country's future, but because I have a flag to wave which no actual evidence could make me re-evaluate [sarcasm intended].

P.S. Love the NBN and NDIS but they weren't what we were talking about, were they?

Bob R. said...

Tony Abbott is the right man for you GingerTheRedHeeler.

NYM said...

GingerTheRedHeeler, you have waved your flag alright, You hate the Labor Party like poison. No need to bullshit that it is all "Labor's fault" and that if they were the perfect party, full of perfect people making perfect decisions only then would you vote for them. You are fully entitled to vote for Newman and Abbott. Just stop your bullshitting.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

BobR and NYM,

One last question. This is a 'yes' or 'no' question which, by answering honestly, you will both prove every point I have made above:

'Was there any major policy announcement or action taken by the federal Labor government since 2007 with which you strongly disagreed or strongly thought was a bad idea?'

Bonus points if you also answer 'and why?'

I double dare you.

Anonymous said...

Hey RH, I think the Carbon tax, NDIS and NBS were change making (nation building) policies that the Lberals never achieved over many decades. Note, I did not mention the minor Nationals Party.... They are insignificant!

Bob R. said...

Yes, I strongly protested the change of Sole Parent Pension to Newstart Allowance once the youngest child turned 8. I wrote letters of protest out to the various Ministers on that AND during the election campaign Kevin Rudd announced he would repeal the changes and revert back to the existing Sole Parent Pension eligibility criteria where it existed until the dependent child turned 16. Also I am well aware that various local branches of the ALP also wrote letters of strong protest over the change. Rudd was obviously responding to the rank and file lobbying. It isn't the first time I have done something like that either and won't be the last. However please keep to your obviously passionate and rigid opinion that all Laborites support every single thing the Labor Party does. You hate the Labor Party so need to justify your hate somehow. Frankly I couldn't care less about your opinions.

NYM said...

Back when Hawkey was PM and introduced the national breast cancer screening program I wrote to him suggesting we have a national bowel cancer screening program. Of course I had to wait until Rudd became Prime Minister for that one, and while Roxon has guaranteed the program receives permanent funding, unfortunately some of the drugs haven't yet been put on the pharmaceutical scheme. So I wrote about that too. Can't win them all. But the main thing is we do have guaranteed funding now for bowel cancer screening. So you can stick that up your cake hole Ginger. Some of us don't sit back and whine and whinge and dump hate all around. We do something called lobbying which we do to improve the lives of people around us. I know Bob R. does it too. But keep on with your moaning and your hating Ginger. When you're as old as both Bob and I, you won't have achieved anything in life but made people dislike you.
