CURTIS PITT AND CORRUPT ALP PROVE TO BE JUST AS CORRUPT AS LNP

LAGOON VISITORS ENJOY THE VIEW OF
CAIRNS' FIRST SUPERLINER VISIT
Several years ago, John MacKenzie latched on to the "dredging of the Trinity Inlet" as some magic elixir for the flagging Cairns tourism-centric economy.  A whole corrupt industry has been created around the "dredge the inlet" crowd, despite the fact that these cruise tourists spend little and generally stay 12 hours or less.

When Campbell Newman and the LNP defeated the failed ALP government of Anna Bligh-Beattie, John MacKenzie took great comfort in his alleged "iron-clad commitment" from Newman to dredge the inlet.  Rapist-defender Gavin King built a brief political career on it before going back to "journalism" (his own dodgy website because no REAL new outlet will have him).  

The LNP failed to deliver, and even "hid" the environmental report from the public.  After losing the election to Palaszczuk, she and treasurer-trainee Curtis Pitt manipulated this report to suggest the cost would be almost $400 Million.  Clearly not something a cash-strapped Queensland government was going to build.

Everyone knew the $400 Million quote was a bald-faced lie.  

Now with an election looming, Pitt has "figured out" a way to partially dredge the inlet, pump the dredge spoil into Yorkey's Knob, all for the bargain basement price of $120M!

Which will blow out to $400M - AFTER the election it is designed to help Palaszczuk win!

Politicians on both sides dangle a treat in front of us, that yank it away after it has done their political job.  There is NO economic justification for this project - it can NEVER produce enough revenue to account for the cost.  What's changed?  


How about spending $120M on the shitty road infrastructure, the missing upgrade to the Kuranda Range road, the lack of city bypass, the pie-in-the-sky Bob "Sleepy" Manning light rail project?  None of these projects stack up either, but they're not a lazy $120M being given to a (likely) Chinese dredging bidder.  

We're a mob of stupid fuckers in Cairns, aren't we?

WTF did you say Shanghia? You organized a dredge from China to Dredge the inlet for $2, so long as Ports North sell the port to them. Sounds feasible.

Herr Pitt looks like a shiny dildo with ears! He needs to get of Brisbane more out from under the Premiers desk and spend more time in his Gordonstale office. News to the State and Federal Governments - upcoming elections will be one based on FNQ and Western Queensland electorates, so you better start listening and spending money up here you arrogant arseclowns. Your career clocks are ticking.

Spot on HW this dredging is a big heap of political bs, pushed along by some old lnp dinosaurs.

Can we dredge the Councillors backyards and look for hidden containers of cash?

Just don't dredge too close to the airport as you may bring up loads of aviation fuel contaminated sand and mud.

Yes imaging Richie Bates backyard with his ADCO stash. Need a big backhoe.

The people running Cairns Shitty Council are incompetents. They have only ever worked at little tinpot organisations, not real businesses. The Councillors get voted in not based on skill but based on what rewards they will give their mates in return for votes. I mean give me a fucking break, do they seriously think that we believe they are willing to work for $50k per year and dedicate their life to the community because they are decent people who care about us? Fuck off. They are crooks who cash in and get rich from the public purse and big business, that's why they do the job they do. And the system is grotesquely flawed and they get away with it - family and friends win contracts, do 'consulting' work, have rules and regulations bent and changed legally to ensure they profit from the changes! It's all a game that only the priveleged few get to benefit from

Went to Port Douglas for a drive a couple of weeks ago and the water looked like sewerage. Palm Cove is so nice but the water to swim in is gross. It would have to affect some reefs closer to shore. Cairns is stupid and LNP and ALP are identical to each other. QLD may struggle without any real progressive thinking.

120-400 million to dredge the inlet are they serious ??cant we buy our own second hand dredge and do it ourselves ? why rely on Brisbane. fuck the epa its all mud anyway and the crocs might even fuck off as well . cmon ports north grow some balls . ps I want 10% intellectual rights.

WTF Shangai, you want in at 10%? Fuck that, I will split a deal three ways between you, me and one of the crooked Councillors (silent partner of course) and (take your pick) and we can buy a shitty dredge from Dubai and operate it between the three of us and do it for $60m. We can dump the money in the Cayman Islands (even Malcolm Turdball does that) then it's off to the Bahamas for retirement!

WTF did you say Shanghai? You're a fuckin loony. That mud could fill the gap between HBW's ears ten fold. Go and eat a dick you dog rooter.

Anybody else notice how bald and fat Coitus Pitt is getting? He looks like a beach ball with an egg on top of it. Life must be good in Brisbane using that corporate credit card and enjoying the pleasures of being an overpaid public servant. Maybe he can come back to Cairns and work off all that extra blubber by pounding the pavement (and not his shlong) and getting back in touch with the local community that ultimately he and his government are fucking over. We are eagerly awaiting the electricity price increases next month Coitus, you better do something baldy otherwise your ass is grass next election!

Me too. HBW exposes all of the dodgy politicans and business crooks that run our town and other ones! HBW has a job for life, there are so many dodgy, crooked cunts out there! I wonder if HBW will accept a $50k bag of cash from me? Just asking........
