WITH UNITY TEAM IN MELTDOWN MANNING ORDERS SCHILLING APOLOGY BUT MAYBE TOO LATE TO BE OUSTED

WHILE WE'RE UNSURE OF THE REASON
FOR SCHILLING'S RANT, THE FACT
IS THERE IS *NO* EXCUSE
With the Cairns community white-hot with anger about John Schilling's slander of Connect Cairns mayoral candidate Jim Brooks earlier this week, Cairns Mayor "Bankrupt Bob" Manning has ordered Schilling to make an apology to Brooks on the John MacKenzie show TWICE on Friday.  Rumours have included the forced Schilling resignation from the Unity team, as well as withdrawal from the contest next month.  We have been unable to confirm either.

You can't make this shit up.  

We have received reports of several Cairns Council front line employees that have been victims of Schilling's abuse over the years.

The first is likely to be at 9:05a when the show begins, and again later in the day at 6:05p.  Since the MacKenzie show is broadcast TWICE per day (ever since Michael Bailey was canned), the slander occurred twice.

John MacKenzie has also removed the slanderous comments that he promoted special as 'sparks flying' on Twitter and elsewhere.  Cueball is even more culpable as he has a "dump switch" designed to stop such kind of commentary from going to air and making the station liable.

Along with revelations that John Schilling doesn't even live in Division 2, Schilling is looking like the first Unity Team loser thanks to his big mouth bullying. 

A stunning immolation. 

Now if we can get Manning to explain why he allowed his (trading while insolvent) EventsNQ to get voted a sweetheart, no-bid service contract just weeks before collapse, the voters will start to get a sense how incompetent Manning has been.

UPDATE:

John MacKenzie read a lawyer-written "unreserved apology" to the miniscule audience.  Clearly Grant Broadcasting recognizes the untenable situation they are in with MacKenzie and his right-wing ratbaggery.

To be fair the full text and audio of the apology should be posted on the 4CA website and to the Twitter and Facebook audiences where the slander was promoted by 4CA.  

An insider has reported to us that the biggest issue with 4CA and the Schilling attack was that 4CA and MacKenzie MADE THE CALL to Schilling and deliberately let the program run long so that Schilling could be the LAST CALLER.  Management is said to be aware of this.  (Many have known for years that the callers are "orchestrated" and not spontaneous).

We understand Schilling is fighting tooth-and-nail against this same apology, even though his statements have been refuted as "absolutely false" by John MacKenzie and 4CA.

Look at Bob move!!!!! The only time you see the garden gnome active is when there is a danger to him losing the taxpayer trough! Shilling is a disgrace, society has no room for bullies and antagonists of his calibre, and too promote such a person to a local leadership role would be deplorable. Shilling needs to pack his bags and 'walk the green mile'. Bankrupt Bob is another example of who we don't need in power. Apart from his obvious incompetences old coconut husk has a bankrupt business that won Council contracts while apparently trading insolvent. This alone needs to be investigated and referred to the CCC. There will be numerous signatories on those contract documents that were awarded to Bankrupt Bobs business, and every person involved needs to have their ass dragged before the Commission.

Schilling has been getting away with murder on the McKenzie Council Happy Hour on Fridays for way too long.He has been using it as a platform to push his extreme right wing views and to launch personal attacks on the likes of Val Schier, Jim Brooks, Rob Pyne and anyone else who doesn't suit his reactionary agenda. And of course he gets away with it unchallenged. The only ones allowed to talk to him are the regular McKenzie cronies for some mutual backslapping and the odd pensioner complaining about a pothole in their street.

The apology was delivered through gritted teeth. I hope Schilling gets sued. Where is his apology ????

Well I have just heard John Mackenzie issue an apology to Jim in behalf of 4CA and himself. However doesn't Schilling also have to make an apology?

I wonder who will be on the show this morning. Surely not another Unity team stooge.

Sir cus said...

To let this desperate rant go to air was a travesty of justice to say the least,disgraceful .No amount of apologies can justify this .

In a way, I hope Schilling refuses to apologise.....and has his arse sued off. That would then be the best part of him gone!

First call and it's another arm chair ride for bankrupt Bob, even lazy boy Greg from division 9 could handle this.

Yes, it's Manning on with "Ken the cabbie" lined up first to gush and fawn all over him. Manning then lied about not being "arrogant". The same person who dismissed the urgent need for a new performing arts theatre with the selfish, arrogant dismissal, "Oh my wife and I fly to Brisbane and Sydney to see the top shows." (Stuff everyone else!) Then the next call was followed by "Steve of Cairns North", another great Bob fan who raised a simple matter.
Oh Jeezuz, then we have "Jimbo of Edmonton" phoning to tell Bob that you don't have to mark your ballot paper after your name is recorded on the electoral role as having voted. (DUH!!)
Then followed by Ian of Edmonton congratulating Bob for doing what ALL councils do which is fixing sewerage etc

Mackenzie did his job well once again. Lined up a great congaline of suckholes to make it all so easy and cushy for old Bob who can't obviously handle any friction or disagreement. Poor old doddery geriatric! We are left wondering if Bob can handle an emergency in Cairns, if he obviously cannot handle a bit of verbal friction and disagreement on the local radio station.

You're not wrong Anonymous 10.44. Manning won't have Mackenzie there to make everything nice and easy for him if there is an emergency in Cairns. Scarey thought huh?

Christ or mighty Manning is still going on about dredging the inlet and once again going on and on about the problems of dispersal of the dredged materials. How many times has this got to be raised? I'm beginning to think that there are people in Cairns who have diseased cerebral cortexes. You tell them the same thing over and over and over and next they are asking the question all over again. Then Manning talks about the "overwhelming support" in Cairns. Well to be quite frank if there is "overwhelming support" and Manning himself was CEO of the Ports Authority for eighteen years, then why the hell haven't they yet come up with a solution? All those years in the Port Authority and he hasn't come up with a solution???

Richie Bates is the biggest supporter of Manning and Unity.I wonder if he will comment on Schillings behaviour

Prediction: Schilling will now withdraw from the election.
His reason: "My misjudgement in seriously defaming a mayoral candidate in a public forum has made me an unsuitable divisional candidate".
To stay on taints the entire Unity team. To go may avoid a costly judgement (and it may not).

Manning doesn't get the big desk and the big pay to come up with solutions. That's the responsibility of his enemies. It is all their fault that there is no solution. However he will take all the credit and glory for it afterwards.

Prior to his rant against Jim, I have only ever heard Schillings once before on the Mackenzie shit program. He was ranting away about Julia Gillard. If ever anyone was naïve enough to believe he was non political they would have learned otherwise quickly enough. I could not work out why some Federal issues he was ranting about had any bearing on his job as a Councillor. It was bizarre. I presumed that Mackenzie couldn't drag up Entsch, Bill or Ken or any of the old boys to deliver the daily dose of Julia bashing, so he asked Schilling to fill in the spot.

Schilling is a rabid right wing reactionary who uses his regular spot on 4 CA to attack his perceived enemies and to bask in the praise heaped on him by all the parochial rednecks who have never been anywhere and have no idea what's going on in the rest of the workd. I hope JB sues him for slander and defamation.I suspect cueball let it slip through in the hope that mud would stick even if he had to apologise. How come Bob didn't get any questions about his financial dealings?

Coconut Husk has lost the plot. Dribbling on about the inlet dredging....again! Wake up you silly old prick, this is 2016. You had almost 20 years as the 'head of Port bludging' to do something, and you didn't. So let it go you senile old fool. Like you in general, it is old news. You are living in the past you Bjelke-Petersen clone. Piss off to Kingaroy mate, they would love and value you there. We need a young modern team of Councillors in Cairns. People with not only the vision and a strategy, but the balls and brains to deliver on those strategies and achieve their vision. It is never going to happen while we have geriatrics, incompetents, bludgers and bullshit artists at the helm, steering Cairns back to the 1980's.

The port nonsense is so overblown. I read recently that bigger ships can be problematic for some ports trying to recover their investment as the underlying demand is the same so you end up with bigger, but far fewer, ships.

Then the big ships offer low fares but then rely on discretionary spending, unlike the all inclusive of the past, so provide their own tours and compete strongly with local business. Far more so than the smaller cruises. In the Caribbean they own whole islands, shopping centres and tours. So for very little they want us to spend 400 million then we would need far more infrastructure on land. For what?

I wish we had some coherent policy from at least one level of government. Gone past a joke.

I heard some fellow on the Mackenzie chat complain about how elderly people on board a recent cruise liner which anchored off Yorkeys Knob had to find their own way off the ship and did so with great difficulty. This fellow was inferring that if we had a suitable terminal in Cairns then everything would be AOK. What rubbish. What he didn't say was that the crew on the cruise ship should have assisted their elderly customers off the ship as part of their service. You can bet your bottom dollars the crew would have been all assistance and friendly smiles as the elderly people got on board the ship. I have been on several escorted bus tours and on each one of those tours, both the bus driver and the guide extended their assistance to helping and looking after the elderly. It is all part of good customer service.

The Port idea is an old fantasy. It's really more of a wet dream.
