|CAIRNS COUNCIL CEO PETER TABULO|
STRESSED OUT AS MANNING PREPARES
TO THROW HIM UNDER THE ADCO BUS
For those working inside council, this is nothing new. Previous council staff including those of Mayor Schier and Mayor Byrne produced voluminous, detailed reports for councillors. The binders with these reports, provided to every councillor on the Friday before a council meeting, usually ran into the hundreds of pages, and required councillors to spend their weekends reading these reports so that they could vote responsibly.
|BOB "SLEEPY" MANNING AND COUNCIL|
WORKING DILIGENTLY TO APPROVE THE
NEW TOBRUK POOL CONTRACT
On Monday, Manning's response to the press when he was first confronted with this issue shows the kind of idiot we've elected as Mayor. His first response? 'Let's get the information. Because I don't read the Cairns Post or listen to the news or the media at night to find out what's going on!' Bob Manning is an incompetent boob to not even realise how ignorant this sounds.
And with many of these disUNITY councillors too lazy or stupid to read these reports (along with a couple still working other jobs despite their full-time pay from the ratepayers), there was never any objection raised to the minimalist information being provided for multimillion-dollar decisions.
The Minister for Blogs, MP Warren Entsch, pathetically attempted to defend Mayor Sleepy and the Councillors by attacking the Council staff for shitty work. However the buck stops with the Mayor and CEO.
Clearly the CEO Peter Tabulo must be fired for malfeasance. Sadly we don't have the same option to recall the lazy arsehole that we've been stuck with as mayor.
