TOWNSVILLE CAIRNS POST EDITOR JULIAN TOMLINSON SCRUBS THE COMPOST SITE CLEAN SO TOM HEDLEY CAN FUCK MORE CAIRNS HOMEBUYERS

The deadly circle of scammers continues to reassert itself as the construction environment becomes slightly more buoyant.

Tom Hedley has returned.

We all remember Tom Hedley.  The "regular guy" who built the worst possible houses and apartment blocks in Cairns - tourists call them "prison towers".  Owners of these dud housing units fought incessantly with Hedley's companies until they finally went bankrupt, screwing tradies all over FNQ.

Hedley snuck away to PNG, with allegations that millions in construction equipment were loaded on a ship and barged away to avoid the creditors.  And he kept all his ponies, too.  Like most sleaze ball crooks he got away with it, screwed the little guy, and now is back for more.

Tom Hedley has returned.

And unlike newspapers all over the world, who regard their work as timeless, the high-school dropout editor Julian Tomlinson has scrubbed the cairnspost.com.au website from any links to Hedley's nefarious dealings.

We don't forget so easily, Tom.  Since the front page story about Hedley's return yesterday, the Hillbillywatch.com website has seen traffic EIGHTEEN TIMES the norm - with most of the searches looking for Hedley stories from the past.

And like our Cairns Mayor Bob "Sleepy Manning", who also bankrupted a business and walked away screwing the employees and others, Tom Hedley is being welcomed back to Cairns for another bite from the public's wallet.

You can't make this shit up.

His partner says "He's very hands-on, Tom has a very distinct style".

Yes he does.

It's called CRAP.

Let's get the other crook developers back too. There's a sucker born every minute!

How stupid must his backers be. There is mountains of units and houses for sale in Cairns and most of them have been taken off the open house listing and as for the 2% rental bullshit by the real estate ripoffs in this place its because houses and units are not being offered for rent. The unit prices in Brisbane are falling at a great rate and the previous buyers are losing many thousands of dollars because of over supply and inflated prices by real estate parasites at the time. The same thing here with byrne at helm of so called boom time and Hedley was in there ripping them off. Many investors here have lost many thousands also. So where did all the dollars go Tom?

I guess we will have to wait until they all die off.

He is probably just the first one of the bankrupt builders to crawl from under their rock. After the next building boom peters out, plenty of people will get caught again, either by not getting paid for the work they have done or because they'll end up with a poor quality unit with all sort of defects no one wants to fix. Buyer beware !

Welcome to Cairns, where mendacious developments and dodgy business deals rule the roost and every day is a groundhog day!

He's back at the CJC too, making sure the track is just right for his ponies.

Tom will also screw over the Jockey Club again as well! He left them with so many skeletons in the closet, it took years of hard work to pay it all back, watch it all fall to shit again under Tom ( how can I get my horses to win Tom)

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't trump a property developer,a x4 times bankrupt, failed casino operator etc etc etc.

His bankruptcy must have ended. It's normally 7 years so sounds about right, there will be people buying his rubbish and ending up like previous purchasers of his building stock. All we need now is Jadke to return all all the shysters will be back. As for the Cairns post trumpeting Hedleys return.............

So, what is the link between Bob Manning's proposed bail-out of the Cairns Jockey Club and Tom Hedley? How's that going, 12 months since Bob Manning promised it?

The shock jock is already busy promoting him....probably hoping to get some advertising dollars.

I remember a front page Cairns Post article including Hedley on how he's making half a million dollars a day, tried to find it on google to no avail but Saturday's article is the Cairns Post ringing the bell again, we're at the top! We can only hope the cheap debt and the collapsing Aussie will see Cairns emerge, as a close friend of propriety often says, Cairns moves to a different beat of the drum to the rest of Australia.

Overheard a local businessman today going right off about Hedley. "If that fucking prick ever walks in here I'll tell the bastard what I think of him."
Nice to know that not all the business community like him.

On the positive side, I have made a lot of money ove r the years fixing up the shoddy Hedley, CMC etc. projects. It's the gift that keeps on giving. Too bad for the owners of course and all the suppliers and subbies that got shafted, but you'd be mad to get involved with those shonks in the first place.First they squeeze all the subbies for price, so everybody cuts corners and does shoddy work. Then many of them get screwed over with extras and defects or not paid at all as the business model means that sooner or later the whole thing must go under.
