(We'll wait until you're done laughing, too).
Then Norman breathlessly reveals that the idea is "adapted" (read:stolen) from the recruiting model at the Cairns Private Hospital.
In other words Bob, your "exclusive" is little more than wallaby shit on my shoe. Great job, Bob.
Norman says when they get an appropriate candidate, they'll "spruik the charm of Cairns" to the candidate.
Which charm is that, Bob-o? The charm of the "hoards of teenage ratbags that run thru the CBD snatching purses and stealing cars" (a quote from your mate, John MacKenzie)?
Or the charm of "disgusting filthy drunks from the communities who can't be moved on by the Queensland Police Service"? The communities with "30 times the crime" (according to MacKenzie) and where many of your indigenous patients come from!
Then there's the "charm" of Aquis, the Chinese casino that will be filled with Asian gamblers who don't give a shit about reef, rainforest, and World Heritage anything. And after the state government invests not one shilling into vital infrastructure for this resort what do you think will happen to the current group of doctors that came here for nature amenity? Can you really find enough medical specialists attracted by alcohol intoxication, 24 hour casino gambling, motels filled with Chinese whores, and the gutting of our green, reef & rainforest experience?
Every line of this interview a laugher, hey Bob!
He says "we want to talk about recreational and cultural facilities". You got some heat-stroke there, Bob? You wouldn't be talking about the wonderful Cairns Cultural Precinct that you fought tooth and nail against because your family goes to Brisbane and Sydney concerts?
And then you bellow "we don't have a bad reputation, it's in the connotations". And where did those "connotations" come from, Bob? You ever listen to 4CA?
You're a riot, Bob. Funny as a crutch!
With the audience now warmed up and pealing with laughter, Norman goes for the big finish and says "we've even got scope to have a local Cairns unRegional councillor meet and give Cairns a plug".
You're killing us, Bob. NO ONE sees most of the councillors, not even their own Cairns constituents. And you think they'll be good at selling the community to new doctors? We don't think that Cr. Greg Fennell can even find Cairns on a map.
You're a scream, Bob! A scream!
Oh, and when you gonna do something about all them filthy smokers in front of the hospital?
We can hear the hacking and wheezing from here!
