The name Gavin King makes most in Cairns want to retch. His mercifully short time as MP and Rapist Excuser was followed by a brief stint writing historical fiction, and then a single column in the Douglas Shire Newsport - both of which confirmed that his journalism career is well and truly over.
King is carrying the kind of Stench that doesn't go away. All as the result of his vile views and big mouth.
It is no surprise that he's now trying to inject his venom into the current federal election - clearly at the bidding (and likely envelope of cash) from the current Minister of Blogs Warren Entsch. It comes in the form of a "news" website that King describes as "a place of local stories and unique voices, a hub of info and a destination of debate". Well, no promises on the debate - King's already furiously deleting contrary comments and blocking opposing viewpoints.
Most of the website is an obvious campaign promo for Warren Entsch.
But like all things "Gavin King", this one too is knee-deep in fraud and deceit.
The business name is completely unregistered, and the
domain name is registered to "Tropic Trust". And while Gavin and Leah King are selling advertising on this soon-to-be-sinking ship, they aren't registered for the GST - so there's another 10% that the government is getting screwed out of.
This source of "engaging news" has ignored six of the candidates for Leichhardt, ignored the cursing from Warren Entsch at the the Katter Party candidate (and Entsch's subsequent lying about it), along with the frequent attacks from Entsch surrogates at campaign stops (like the abuse heaped on a HBW reader at the DFO).
And of course all of the Entsch failures are never mentioned. Six years of abusively high insurance rates JUST in the Far North. Shipbuilding contracts given to others. No money for roads, for public infrastructure. Years of Entsch failures - ignored by Gavin King.
Amazing what a couple envelopes of cash can do.
