RIPPED IT OFF WITH NO ATTRIBUTION
Claiming he'd been dudded, King said 'this isn't a handicap space, it's a loading zone'. Apparently he doesn't understand why "loading zones" have been created for the adjacent businesses - so much for the "business friendly" LNP. Nor does his car have a Council-issued "Loading Zone" permit.
King also blubbered "Apart from the moral prerogative, given the prominence of my name and face on my car I would not willingly park in a disabled spot".
A guy well known for his views excusing rape, and calling Chinese "freaks and weirdos", has given up his right to cite "moral prerogative" as a defence. Especially parked at The Pier, flush with vacant parking day and night. It's clear our double-talking MP took the closest space available, seeing himself to busy and important to walk the extra 10 meters.
John MacKenzie, suckered by the poor Cairns Post reporting (which just said the picture taken had 'gone viral'), started to berate the use of social media and "everyone who has a camera". THIS WAS A CAMERAMAN AT CHANNEL SEVEN LOCAL NEWS, DOING HIS JOB, DICKHEAD! THAT'S MORE THAN WE CAN SAY FOR YOU!
Undermining the bullshit explanations are King's well-known history of illegal parking - as we discovered in 2012.
He just doesn't like getting caught.
