ANOTHER BRUTAL WARREN ENTSCH FAILURE TO DELIVER - BUT POLITICAL MATES CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN THE TOOTH FAIRY

"Shit happens, mates" said Minister for Bloggers Warren Entsch as he climbed into his taxpayer-paid luxury vehicle in an unknown state of sobriety.  And then the vehicle sped away into the night. . . 

So goes the promised funding for the Committee for Oncology Unit Cairns Hospital (COUCH) Health and Wellness Centre at the hands of the do-nothing member for Leichhardt.  Despite the huge donation by the Woodward Family of 2+ hectares of land and roadworks, this kind of "public private partnership" has been dissed by the LNP Government at every level.

Entsch is quoted as saying he's "determined" to push the cause.  In order to reinforce his resolve, he's showed up at the site waving a magic wand he previously used with mixed success (none) in the FNQ insurance crisis.


FAIRY WAND IN CAPABLE HANDS WHILE PIP WOODWARD
LISTENS TO BLOWHARD IN STUNNED SILENCE

Do you actually know the land they are donating? You may need to do some more research. It is an isolated, but quite scenic patch of inner city (rare) rainforest, wetlands. Normally a useless severely constrained piece of land that no one could ever think was suitable for any form of development... so the donation is not that charitable.. particularly without a whole lot of Government subsidy... so do some more homework Hillbilly watcher! By the way, I am no Entch fan !

By all means.. put this development on land without these very severe land constraints.. It is a much needed facility.

Yeah well it was Jim Turnour who got the Federal funding needed to secure the Liz Plummer radiotherapy unit at the Cairns Base Hospital, not bloody blubber guts Entsch. This wellness centre can bloody wait until there is another ALP Federal Member before it can expect any money. Christ, the fucken Tories NEVER EVER fund any health facilities.

Agreed Bob R. The centre will have to wait until there is a Labor Federal Member and a Labor Federal Government again. Entsch and the LNP didn't give a shit that people up here died waiting to have radiotherapy in Townsville. It wasn't until Jim Turnour got elected when we had a Labor Government that we got the funding. With cancer on the increase and expected to target younger and younger people we need all the cancer facilities we can get but it wont happen under an LNP government.

Off the subject please.I have just returned to live in Cairns after being away for 40 years and I heard your local radio shock jock saying that one of the reasons for the croc management was so that people could swim in the Baron River AGAIN. Someone needs to tell this man that having fished the river in the 60's and 70's we would never contemplate swimming there because of the crocs. How would some politician telling you it was now safe change the isolation of this river that encourages crocs to live there.

Your not wrong there Bob. The Woodwards will be waiting until hell itself freezes over before the Tories hand over one red cent for public health. Entsch is all bullshit but as I have observed the public love bullshit. It never fails to suck them in.

I was under the impression that the Woodward donation of land was so they could build a private wellness centre on the Reservoir Road site....my memory may be faulty but I sem to remember attempts by the donor to get approval for development of the spring site over the years and not for welness centre....I wonder who will be ableto afford to go there if it is built..beware of health money again being siphoned off by the rich for their sole benefit

Who cares? Nothing will happen until there is a change of government and Labor is swept back into office. Entsch is just huffing and puffing and farting away, lots of noise but no action. Unhappily Observer you are dead right. Cancer is on a sharp increase and now affecting younger and younger people. With the Abbott and Newman Governments following the neo-liberal ideology of small government, they won't fund any new health ventures even in the face of rising cancer rates. Labor will be left to do the right thing for the people.

NYM said...

Someone has already made the comment that all a local politician has to do is get onto the media and just talk shit as often as possible and that impresses the sheeple out there. That comment is an accurate reflection on the voter of this area. Entsch can make all the promises and talk all the shit he wants and it will impress people enough to vote for him. Full stop.

Enstch making his speech today in Parliament or rather reading the words. I thought they were required to make speeches from their thoughts. Impossible for some. All the mumbling and fumbling and none of it made any sense or promised any big deal for the far north. All hot air, once again.
