|GAVIN KING PHOTOBOMBS LNP PRESS CONFERENCE|
WITH REMINDER OF HIS MOST SUCCESSFUL
TOURISM CAMPAIGN - BOLT FOR CAIRNS
Big projects were mooted by Newman to be undertaken with this money - but there was NO mention of any use of this honeypot for Cairns. Again. Sigh.
Newman is also said to be considering MORE hundreds of millions to the Gold Coast light rail line, a tourism project that saw almost $2BILLION in taxpayer money thrown at the Gold Coast.
Tourists and residents of Cairns can't even get a fucking bus home from New Year's Eve celebrations - all thanks to the Member for Cairns.
These announcements come on top of a promised $140M in road upgrades for the Gold Coast, announced by Federal Minister Emerson yesterday. Minister for Blogs Warren Entsch has snagged Cairns none of this money - doing the same "missing-in-action" representation as Gavin King. This useless dugong will be the next to be ejected.
Good transport is vital to a healthy and growing tourism economy. That's why Gavin King's flaccid performance in this portfolio is just another reason for him to go. He's so irrelevant to Newman and the tourism policies that he isn't even invited to the announcements, despite his ass minister title!
And then Newman's decided to flush another $60 Million down the
dunny, with this money to be "gifted" to the Hollywood film industry. Can anyone name one Queensland-produced film or other "celebrity" event that has resulted in any extra tourists to Australia? No, of course not. And with the 25% decline in the Australian dollar exchange rate with the US$, there is no reason for any more Hollywood corporate welfare.
With the LNP throwing Cairns under the bus, the next sound you'll hear will be the voters for FNQ throwing their LNP failures under the bus.
