As the reactionary and fascist Queensland LNP attempts to steer left as an election comes close, the Queensland LNP has ordered police to drag the homeless, the mentally ill, the vagrant, the sick, the needy, and the youthful OFF the Cairns CBD streets during the upcoming G20 finance ministers meeting. An overhyped event if there ever was one. Good thing Cairns is the speed capital of Australia - we're all going to need a dose for this crowd.

Reports also suggest that Aquis developer Tony Fung "prefers" cruise ships to dock at Yorkey's Knob. Michael Trout bitch-slapped again.
Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King was told yesterday by Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney that the dredging of the Trinity Inlet is a no-go.
