LOCAL CAIRNS LNP MP'S PROVIDED WITH PORTS NORTH DREDGING EIS AND YET STILL WITHHELD FROM PUBLIC? WE CALL ON PORTS NORTH TO UNDERTAKE IMMEDIATELY AN INVESTIGATION INTO THIS BREACH OF THE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION POLICY.

On the Cueball show this past Tuesday, Minster for the Environment Greg Hunt was a guest of 4CA (have you noticed how the LNP gets "guest spots" and yet both MacKenzie and his fellow 4CA LNP supporter Michael Kelly only make phone calls to the ALP).

Elvis Ashwell, who was one of the original supporters of cruise ship dredging of the Trinity Inlet, asked the Minister point blank if the LNP commitment was still good.  Hunt said "yes", and then asked Michael "Not the Black Sheep" Trout to waffle on his behalf.

Trouty then let the cat out of the bag, saying . . "originally in 2012 when the Premier made that commitment, was a $40M commitment; ONCE THE EIS HAD CAME OUT, (stutter, stutter), CERTAINLY HE HAD LIFTED THAT VALUE TO SOME $90M" 

Elvis then asked "so with the costings of what Gavin (King) said last week regarding it being from $200M to up to $250M, where does he get that figure from".  Trouty than repeats again "this is part of the EIS, they've done the costings". . .



So our LNP members confirm that THEY have copies of the inlet dredging EIS despite the document supposedly being in an independent, non-political process!  Michael Trout refers to the EIS "coming out". . . .it's only "come out" to LNP insiders in Cairns.  Apparently even Minister Hunt isn't aware that the document is being circulated secretly in Cairns!

Gavin King has said repeatedly that he hasn't seen the document as it is confidential until released.  However Michael Trout has now confirmed that both he and King have seen the document.  These clowns can't even get their stories straight!

We remind the community that Ports North management is a
political plum doled out by the government of the day.  When Newman was elected in 2012, the ALP-appointed management was out and in came LNP political hacks - including one of the most sinister, lawyer Brett Moller.  Moller, said to be the one who ousted the first Cairns LNP preselection candidate Paul Freebody, continues to serve as president of the Cairns Chamber of Commerce and Industry (not to be confused with the Cairns Chamber of Commerce) while Moller took up his appointment as Chair of Ports North.  

Moller was responsible for production of the Trinity Inlet dredging EIS.  So where is the leak of this report to our local LNP members, and why can't we get a straight answer from them when they obviously have confirmed they are aware of the contents and conclusions??

Readers can decide for themselves if this violates the Ports North Fraud Control and Corruption Policy.  We call on CEO Chris Borland to undertake such an investigation to determine why this independent report has been provided to our local LNP members, who else has been given this confidential report, and other details surrounding this sordid affair.

It was clear from day one 40 million was not enough and Ports knew it. King is an airhead populist but Ports knew.

I wonder if the morons that call themselves 'leaders' of Cairns, ie that knobhead nobody from Advance Cairns and the blond shrill from Chamber of Commerce still havethe dredging as a top priority for the election. What a joke.

There is no accountability and transparency with this lot at all. When you take into consideration all the farting and fart-arsing around which has gone on with this "dredging the Cairns Inlet to allow the cruise ships in" and the sheer cost of yet another EIS on it, we could have had a tender set up established at Yorkeys Knob by this. Instead we have gone around in one great enormous tortuous circuit on an issue which was decided decades ago, that dredging the Cairns Inlet is not cost effective and poses a danger to the Great Barrier Reef.

I guess the report is being kept under lock and key because it is embarrassingly expensive and if the rumours are true that if we want it the rate payers will have to cover the extra cost. It makes the 50 million top up of Vals plan fade into insignificance doesn't it. I guess to dredge, bring it in to shore, transfer to trucks, road trip to east trinity, unload onto new roads built in the marshes for this purpose, spread by heavy machinery would cost about 1/4 million. What about the following year. Remember that Carnival cruises, one of the worlds largest said they still wouldn't bring big ships in because there just isn't the room to turn them around. What was wrong with the two kilometre boardwalk peir out into the sea with a light rail, seems simple to me to transfer the goods. The end.

Off the subject but it is a scary thought that Mackenzie (LNP FNQ spokesman) is going to be the mediator in the candidate debate coming up. That would be like asking jones to mediate in a debate on homosexuality

So many would like to comment on your post but maybe, perhaps, (insert other disclaimers) not after the LNP bottomless pit of funding to combat Alan Jones' coments.

LNP lackey Moller was asked about this on Talkback and squirmed and squirmed and squirmed and tried to lie his way out of it. He could not guarantee that dredging would go ahead. in other words, it won't, otherwise King would be making mileage out of it, the grub.
