Become a fan of Warren Entsch

I've got a dilemma. Just got this email, what should I do?
  • Jake Robertson suggested you become a fan of Warren Entsch...
    To: Michael Moore <mike@cairnsblog.net>
    Date: 9 December 2009 21:07

    Jake became a fan of Warren Entsch on Facebook and suggested you become a fan too.
    Follow the link.

PS: Warren only has nine supporters at the moment. Maybe I should help him out a little, and pull him a bit to the left.

Have you looked at his page? He can't spell!

Ren Nel said...

Wow Kirsten is that the best you can do. Obviously you dont have enough work. Maybe locals would prefer you concentrate on bigger things than typos. But hey thats just me.

Constance Lloyd said...

And your first go at a Facebook page was picture perfect Kirsten? Oh the arrogance of youth!

Mark Davis said...

Isn't it Stench?

Martin Durkan said...

Who? Lol

Jake Robertson said...

Warren will have to work on his "2-finger" technique I think!

Mark, nice line. Been used before hasn't it?

Luke M Henderson said...

who??

Bring back KB said...

wow, a 21yr old in a big adult job still living at home with mum and dad, laying shit on someone trialing their first facebook experience.....

Kirsten, I bet your facebook takes a beating all day while all the adults talk about all that boring council stuff...

Roget's Thesaurus said...

The defensiveness of Ms Ren Nel is understandable given that Mr Warren has credited her with his facebook page presumably because he was incapable himself? Be proud Rennee it is an extreemly (sic)good effort in context of such a lamentable subject.

Ms Kirsten should stick to cycleways and licking Ms Desley's sphincter.

Not The Real Kirsten? said...

"Ms Kirsten should stick to cycleways and licking Ms Desley's sphincter." At least she has gotten off hers and is doing something for the community. What's your claim to fame RT?

Aggrived Ratepayer. said...

Hey Kirsten, what about concentrating on your Council duties instead of nitpicking on useless comment, not directly related to your duties. Spend the time wisely on matter you can remedy.

Furthermore, now that you have broken the ice on comments on this Blog and have an opinion, how about commenting on matter of importance raised on this Blog about Council related matters that you conveniently choose to ignore!

I really like Warren's page

Al said...

Wow Kirsten, you've stirred up all of Warren's Facebook friends. I too would have thought the old bloke would have given some attention to his spelling, but then he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. More importantly, I want to know what's happening with his Indian Mynah eradication plan for Cairns. Remember that folks? Warren had the brilliant idea of contributing (some of) his electorate allowance to fund a new you-beaut trapping scheme to rid us of these pests. The announcement got a Cairns Post headline and then typically ... it was never heard of again! Wazza, in the unlikely event you get another term at the trough, could you revisit this 'core promise'.

Al said...

PS: Wazza, shouldn't there be a mention of your CEC directorship? Just a brief piece ... how the company is going, share price etc (a graph would illustrate that best) Oh, and your part in the False Cape debacle (oops, that's 'development'. Sorry).

The Headless Horseman said...

Mike, we are living in what is becoming a paperless world, so you won't be able to use the emails in the way I might have suggested 15 years ago.

The Headless Horseman said...

By the way, I am a little taken aback at the immature attacks on Kirsten Lesina. It doesn't matter how old she is, she's been doing a fantastic job in my division. She is approachable and receptive and is a woman of action. I've had issues that have needed attention and she has always been supportive and helpful. For that I thank her. My previous councillor, Kevin Byrne's Kathy Plath, was hopelessly unresponsive. Plath's age and experience counted for nothing when I had real issues and needed help.
Thank goodness in my division we got Kirsten as our councillor as well as Val Schier as Mayor.

Thornton On Spence said...

Kirsten you have confirmed to me in your comments that you are a Girl who has no experience in the World. To resort to this type of childish observation is not making you anymore credible.
Let's face it you are a self confessed spud eating paddy the bunt of every joke about their intelligence who would welcome in every non English speaking Refugee but make a spelling mistake in English and you are on to it. Brilliant, well done. Did you manage to discover this whilst you were sitting at the last Council Meeting? You and Jim Turnour should spend some time together. You are both complete jokes.

nocturnal congress said...

Yeah, why doesn't Warren comment on his role in CEC? And while he is at it, what role did they play in the costs blowing out on the Clean Waters requirement, thus causing the rise in our rates????

JKR said...

Go easy on Kirsten, she is a young woman giving public life a go. She simply made an observation, on a blog, in her own time, about something as inconsequential as a typo. But look at the outpouring of vitriol! It seems a completely disproportionate response to me.

Thaddeus said...

Yes, JKR, too many bloody old fart grumble bum baby boomers jealous as all hell that a Generation Yer got out there and won a seat on the Council. Give the kids a go, you bunch of mean minded ageing has-beens!!!

Thornton On Spence said...

So Thaddeus and JKR you are happy to have someone getting paid $150,000 per year without any qualifications or experience. For this she makes mind numbing comments about a Joke and Spelling mistakes on Facebook. Wow sorry maybe my age is clouding the value for the Dollar paid.

JKR said...

Thornton, I think that Kirsten will be judged on more significant things than a comment concerning a typo on a Facebook page. All I advocate for is some sense of proportion to the responses.

Indian Mynah said...

Let's build a monorail in the rainforest!

Al said...

Whoa, sounds like sour grapes Thorton on Spence; what exactly were the qualifications and experience specified for the job? Whatever you think they should be, remember this; Kirsten was elected, not appointed. And considering the alternative - one Paul Freebody - the electorate made a very smart choice.

Thaddeus said...

Thornton, the young ones haven't learned to be manipulative, cunning, evasive, and adept at "double-speak" etc. The crafty and disengenuous traits we see in older politicians takes time to develop. The young with their bright eyed, bushy tailed idealism, and lack of guile and cunning are a breath of fresh air.
We need them on the political landscape.

Master's Apprentice said...

Qualifications, Thornton on Spence?

I think you will find that Cr Lesina has tertiary qualifications.

You might also find that all the Cairns Labor politicians, federal and state, have tertiary qualifications.

You might also find that Stench is the odd man out.

I believe that literacy and numeracy are essential qualifications for leadership.

They help to mount an argument rather than rely on vile comments such as those from Roget's Thesaurus, and the name-calling of Thornton on Spence, Ren Nel, Constance Lloyd, Aggrived (see what I mean?) Ratepayer and Bring Back KB.

But I suppose now that the LNP has reached the dregs at the bottom of the barrel for members and candidates we shouldn't expect anything more from them.

Miss Chief. said...

Just checked..."friends" are now numbering 63. What's that quote about keeping your friends close but your enemies closer? A friend by any other name....

Quentin Chou said...

one of the friends is a cockroach!

JKR said...

Master's Apprentice apparently doesn't see the irony in taking some bloggers to task for "vile" comments whilst simultaneously calling Warren Entsch "Stench". A little consistency please Apprentice!

And please, contrary to previous statements on this blog the LNP in FNQ is growing strongly. And before you ask, yes I am well placed to make that statement.

The comment by Master's Apprentice that the LNP has reached the dreggs for membership is yet another example of just how much these haters on both sides of politics have in common. Their minds closed a long time ago, and that is a shame.

mynah smuggler said...

Hey leave us birds out of the politics we are just fulfilling our evolutionary destiny ya know! The stinking hypocrit even lists aviculture as a hobby of f***book while he plots birdicide!

Master's Apprentice said...

I don't think the word Stench is vile - and the description is someone else's anyway - and truth is an absolute defence.

Ren Nel said...

Master's Apprentice: I am pretty sure I did no name calling. I was just pointing out that maybe Kirsten should be commenting on more important issues rather than something so minor (maybe it was a little strongly worded and for that I apologise, it was rude). I just feel that all politicians no matter their affiliation or age should be respectful and bypass such pettiness. I expect this as much from those of my party as any other.

It all depends on how you face the world, be a bitch and everyone will treat you like one, respect others and they will respect you no matter if you have differing opinions.

Colin said...

How come all the local LNP flunkies appear to be young, intelligent, energetic and good-looking and the Leichhardt candidate is a brainless, beer-gutted, time-serving slob?

Is this really the best they can do?

It’s bad enough that the LNP up here would go back to lick up its own vomit like this, and then I saw the LNP’s “new” front bench – the oberfuehrers who would be giving Corporal Stench his orders.

There’s something seriously wrong with the LNP when it serves up losers like Stench as a candidate, and puts other Howard-era nutters and extremists like Browyn Bishop, Kevin Andrews, Phillip Ruddock and Eric Abetz on the front bench.

The reason so many people are leaving the LNP in Cairns is that it has become a front for the Looney Right and the National Party (same thing, really).

Having Stench as their candidate, and now this misbegotten clutch of neanderthal fruitcakes on their front bench, is going to be the last straw for more of them.

One of Stench’s toadies wrote on this blog about qualifications for elected office.

I’m pleased to be able to oblige concerning the LNP candidate for Leichhardt:

1. The Cape York Concrete scam.

2. His more recent foray into illegal squatting in Mareeba while Federal Member.

3. The vast sums he squandered on an overseas jaunt at taxpayer expense immediately before he retired.

4. His contemptuous behaviour by working as a director of CEC while he was Member for Leichhardt, rather than working for his constituents.

5. Being a director of the company that has despoiled False Cape and one of whose contract employees was killed at work.

I’m sure there are more. Contributions, please.

Al said...

Odd how the right of politics always hankers for the past. A regurgitated Entsch now comes with lots of baggage and a good few less brain cells than in his earlier incarnation. I'm not sure what an exhumed political corpse such as he can contribute to the electorate. I suspect zilch, and if this is the best the LNP can come up with, they are in deep trouble.

JKR said...

Al and all.

We will see what happens come election day. If Entsch is as bad as you all say he is, then Turnour should have no problems accounting for him and increasing his majority.

For mine, I think Turnour has a number of weaknesses and Entsch knows what they are. Turnour is propped up only by the support for Rudd, which is slowly but surely heading south. Turnour doesnt have much of a support base in his own right. Turnour is vulnerable, especially to a character such as Entsch.

Should make for an interesting election.

KitchenSlut said...

Turnour does have a number of weaknesses and the dumb observation that Entsch knows what they are doesn't make him a suitable replacement in Leichhardt? We all know what Jims flaws are! That doesn't make Wazza good rather than just less bad .... maybe?

There is a fundamental dichotomy in the Entsch claim that he represents Leichhardt and not the LNP. His claim on this is bullshit since he has more recently become a party apparatchik apeing Santo Santo and playing his games in the party and not the community as he once did?

His last PR is total support for Abbo but anyone knows that it was his mate Joe Hockey who was his biggest supporter for a return in Leichardt so ..... so where is Wazza on the EMT? With Abbo or Joe? Is he with Leichardt as he claims or up the party's backside as seems obvious?

Lets not even begin on Wazza's role in failing to effect renewal in the LNP and backing John Howard all the way to block any Costello succession right to the end. Quite possibly the most stupid failure in Australian political history and indicative of the kind of sycophantic personal flaws evident also in the hopeless ALP in NSW? Well done Wazza what a guru!!

So what have you got right strategically? Or do we need the Santoro echo's to respond?
