Militant Murris start a big fire on Cape York Peninsula

bulldustThree Community Cabinet meetings, hundreds of thousands of dollars in hand-outs to sporting clubs, millions for council beautification works and Main Roads projects done on the cheap will not change the hostile community attitude towards the Member for Cook  David Kempton and will not help him hold his seat.

Multi-million dollar grazing property purchases handed over to indigenous corporations, construction of useless walking and pushbike tracks and the demolition of valuable rail assets will drive the final nail into the box of the former Cooktown land rights solicitor.

Liberal Party sources say they know the writing is on the wall for their short-lived domination of the Far Northern electorate which stretches from just north of Atherton to the Papua New Guinea border.

Traditional Owners from communities across Cape York Peninsula say they are infuriated with the performance of Mr Kempton.

Likewise community leaders from southern parts of the electorate which will be the subject of a future article.

“Where are our jobs?” demanded an angry Traditional Owner from Injinoo.

Two outspoken indigenous community leaders have targeted the Liberal Party and Mr Kempton for “under the table deals” with foreign mining companies and inaction over the removal of Alcohol Management Plans that he promised before the last election.

Others are speaking out about the ‘freehold’ housing deal offered to some communities with conditions that are impossible to meet.

David Kempton

Self-appointed national indigenous spokesman Noel Pearson is believed to be “totally pissed off” with Kempton because of his “back door deals” between various community groups, which undercut the influence and domination by the Cape York Land Council and its business arm, Balkanu over varous community groups.

Cairns News is being careful not to specifically identify the issues that have alienated the Liberals from the CYLC and its “jobs for the boys” program, suffice to say the latest land grab over the entire Peninsula by the CYLC and its nominees has inflamed a turf war among competing groups that will be impossible to extinguish.

Another cop-out at Bamaga by the LNP and Mr Kempton will bring down the roof when it hits the national news bulletin.

Predictions by pastoralists of the 80’s and 90’s have begun to take shape as the State and Federal Governments further dispossess white pastoralists of their generational holdings and hand them over to Aborigines.

It goes without saying that abandoned indigenous cattle grazing enterprises have been the bane of the northern cattle industry and the shame of governments pandering to indigenous pressure groups who simply want to live “on country”.

Gone forever is an integral part of the Far Northern breeding herd and gone forever is proven white stewardship of the fragile Peninsula grazing environment.

Former Peninsula leaders predicted the invisible and sticky fingers of the CYLC would eventually control the entire area north of Lakeland.

The late Harvey Schwenke of ‘Strathmay Station’ and former Peninsula Cattlemans Union chairman created controversy 15 years ago when he said the Land Council would one day control the entire Peninsula.

“They will fence across the lower boundary between Lakeland and Laura, place a gate on the Peninsula Development Road and charge entry to any white people wanting to enter,” Mr Schwenke told a Cairns reporter of the time.

It is notable that ‘Strathmay Station’ was one of five large cattle properties recently handed over to an indigenous group.

Just who will replace the Liberal Party on the Peninsula is anyone’s guess but a tip from Cairns News: “Keep an eye on Katters Australian Party candidate Lee Marriott,” a Cape York Peninsula native from Lakeland.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Well, it’s time that something is said here,

    ” To supply and give over all these things to them ( Unspecified to stop any RACIST comments ) as per the usual standard way of things go in AUSTRALIA, it shits me greatly ! That the whole lot will fall on its Arse, in very soon & coming time…..”

    As per it’s been done elsewhere ! Yep, they all have a want,want & more wants to be able to do their own thing. But in a short time span, they will wreak whatever is there, anise and take whatever thy fuck they can take ( weather it’s bolted down or not ! ) and leave a massive mess behind for some other stupid fool to come in & fix/ repair it back to some formal working order !

    Being a northern based fella, the truth needs to be said. Thou, I honestly doubt this will even be logged as a comment here, due to thy truth being as it’s said by someone in thy know of the indigenous people of Oz. As I know them

  2. Sorry, but Heres some clear examples;- let’s look at some places I know of~
    # hunters creek,tirrilntji,tablelands,GIBB river station,kookaburra and there are many others floating around I can mention ! But, it’s a example of what I’ve seen & known of that’s gone backwards with the handing over to them…
