weekend of families right around Cairns, it's important we recall the rocky start of this festival.
When first announced by Mayor Val Schier, the MacKenzie hillbillies exploded into orchestrated derision. MacKenzie, along with his personal nodder, Gavin "don't rape me" King, spent show after show attacking this 'stupid idea from the do-nothing Mayor Schier". MacKenzie and King made the first two years of festivals MUCH MORE DIFFICULT than if everyone had been as supportive as Mike O'Laughlin, the 4CA morning host.
Contrast this with Cueball's fawning today over Gabby Thomasz, who sat thru a Macca interview on the festival this morning and never once asked him why he hated it, and attacked it relentlessly at the beginning?
Misogynists and other sexual abusers continue their bad behaviour unless called out by their victims. That's the lesson of the Rolf Harris verdict this week. Too bad Gaby now is content to take credit for the whole thing - without acknowledging Mayor Schier.
MacKenzie also continued his defence of the Gavin King illegal parking fiasco this week. Now it's social media that's under attack, with MacKenzie saying "Social media is inhabited by amateurs and idiots"!
Both Gavin King and Warren Entsch have hired "social media" managers - paid for by our tax dollars. The social media manager for King is the failed council candidate Steve Grasso - the source of most of the grammatically bereft posts on King's Facebook page.
So, with this in mind, we want to hear your opinion.
