MANNING AND UNITY TEAM NOW BELIEVE VOTERS WILL BELIEVE FAIRY TAILS - FROM A COUNCIL THAT CAN'T GET THE PARKING METERS WORKING
Cairns politics reached a never-before envisioned level of fantasyland this morning.
Sleepy Bob Manning hasn't yet figured out how to build a swimming pool or water retention basin without big cost overruns. Upwards of $5M (almost double) for the Moody Creek swimming pond, and upwards of maybe $8M in overruns on the Tobruk Pool. Which is now almost a year late, and now reportedly has needed an additional contractor brought in from Brisbane.
Manning and his team haven't yet figure out how to write a business case to get money for the inadequate Civic Theatre replacement. The state government actually requires paperwork. Funny that.
Manning and his team haven't even figured out how to get the traffic signals synchronised - infrastructure that Ingham and Rockhampton have invested in for their ratepayers.
Now Bob wants the residents to believe that he's going to be able to get ONE BILLION DOLLAR$ from the tooth fairy to build light rail. A "team" that can't get the parking meters working correctly.
You can't make this shit up.
