There's no accounting for stupid.
Lee DePaauw, a secondary school dropout in Innisfail, loaded up on grog, jumped into a river KNOWN to be inhabited by crocs. All in a desperate attempt to get his joint copped.
The young lady being wooed by this dickhead is still "standing by her man". Two morons for the price of one.
We've now got John "Cueball" MacKenzie raising his level of screeching on the croc issue, ignoring completely that his own LNP mates could not be moved on this issue THEIR last time around.
MacKenzie continues to warble that "a croc death will spell the end of tourism in FNQ". Absurd.
The issue that WILL spell the end of Cairns as a tourism destination continues to be the butt of ignorance and scorn whipped up by Cueball.
For a second year in a row, massive coral bleaching has been seen on wide areas of the reef, including ALL the areas visited by tourists to Cairns.
All of this is being reported extensively in the world news media. But we're busy being fed a daily diet of croc stupidity and reconfiguration of a CBD street. The reconfiguration of Grafton Street as done to MacLeod Street by Mayor Val Schier is a personal issue with John MacKenzie. He bullied Bob "Sleepy" Manning when he first took office trying to get MacLeod returned to its previous unsafe configuration. Now he's attacking Manning on Grafton Street.
All as we sit by watching the reef, and our tourism industry, die.
John MacKenzie is a cancer on the Cairns community. His holiday exploits in child-abuse countries are well-known. He continues to attack the police, the ALP, and others who he is not allied while cretins like the Member for Bloggers Warren Entsch and crime family leader Michael Trout continue unchecked.
It's time for a housecleaning.
