Cairns Mayor under sustained attack from political overlords


Letter to the Editor

An elite group of political overlords continues their unsubstantiated attack on the Cairns mayor.

In a desperate and sustained attempt to discredit the mayor a vile, festering gang has scored a brilliant goal exposing the hypocrisy within.

Davies just happens to be the right hand man in the office of LNP’s Federal member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch Next around the table Is former division five councillor Richie Bates who lost at the last election to a Manning Unity team candidate.

It well known Bates is still licking his wounds after he was flogged in 2020 but at the 2016 election Bates was elected as a Unity ticket member under a wave of support for the Manning lead Unity team.

Bates currently works in state Labor MP for Cairns Michael Healy‘s office. 

Bates was also MC at Calcino’s 2019 wedding.

The only one missing from this cozy dinner Is Warren’s heir apparent, councilor Brett Olds who is also working one day a week in Warren Entsch’s office.

Brett Olds is also the beneficiary of the sustained attacks on Mayor Bob Manning no doubt written by Chris Calcino.

Olds is regularly featuring in the attacks and is pre-loaded with his rabid talking points,  no doubt cooked up in the anti-Mayor Manning think tank being run from Warren Entsch’s office.

This ladies and gentlemen is how the political elites collude to destroy anyone who isn’t in on their grubby racket.

Regardless of what people think of the mayor it is bleedingly obvious that the Calcino hit job articles are repeatedly trying frame the mayor as conspiring with land developers.

When the real concern for the community is the blatant collusion that’s going on is among these political grubs and Calcino pumping out their garbage in the Cairns post.

Manning obviously is held in great regard by many people in town. Some of which came to his aid, as real friends do when the chips are down.

 But fat chance the slimy reporting would promote that Australian spirit of helping out your mates. 

The pathetic reporting by Calcino and his henchmen fails miserably to report the facts that the Manning’s family business went south whilst the Mayor’s wife was struggling through aggressive breast cancer but Calcino ignores that reality and instead kicks them fair in the guts while they are down. 

 One thing is for sure, this rabble of political elites would struggle to find a mate to even buy them a coffee when their chips were down and the people of Cairns would struggle to think of a single thing any of this lot have contributed to the region.

Cairns Regional Council enters muddy waters

by Robert J Lee in Cairns

Cairns Regional Council has joined in a vexatious claim against a retired police prosecutor, claiming unpaid rates from this resident of another shire.

David Walter resides at Herberton and is a ratepayer within the Tablelands Regional Council. His property is situated 140 klm from the CRC boundary.

Cairns News has researched the correspondence provided by Walter and it has become apparent the law firm Results Legal has not provided any documentation to Walter substantiating the alleged debt from CRC and several other Queensland councils.

Rhett Kipps of Results Legal has sent him threatening letters that most recipients would throw in the bin.

Cairns Mayor Bob Manning was recently mentioned in the media over his business dealings.

A Liberal Party sycophant Mayor Manning recently avoided bankruptcy after a failed business venture.

Cairns News sent the following letter to Mayor Manning on April 26 and to date has not received a reply:

Cr Bob Manning

Dear Mayor,

We have a copy of correspondence from a law firm that is pursuing a retired police officer from Herberton showing that CRC is a party to the action claiming $67,097 for rates payment.

After speaking to Mr Walter he assures us he has never owned property in CRC area and we ask what this amount represents and how it is owed to CRC.

Furthermore we have spoken to counsel for Mr Walter who assures us that CRC could be liable for making false representation to a law firm claiming rates not owed by Mr Walter.

We are advised the High Court will soon make a ruling on this matter and CRC could leave its ratepayers exposed to a substantial damages claim.

Could you please detail your council’s involvement in this spurious and seemingly vexatious matter.

Your early reply would be appreciated.

Cairns News

(a copy of the Results Legal letter warning Walter to vacate his property was attached to the CRC query above. Cairns News published this letter on April 22.)

This query was also sent to each CRC councillor but no replies have been forthcoming.

A legal representative for Walter, who asked not to be named, likened the claim by CRC to “…extortion, being vexatious and frivolous…. it has no lawful standing…”

Walter says he has never received any documentation from a council or the State Government relating to any unpaid court costs or unpaid rates.

“This claim from the Queensland Government is unprecedented in the State’s history and has no lawful basis,” Mr Walter said.

“If the claim that has no supporting accounts, invoices or correspondence relates to court appearances by litigants disputing rates bills, the State Government and the courts would know I have never been present in their courts at the time these litigants appeared.

“In fact they dislike me so much the Bar Association got a judge to make an order preventing me from entering any court in Queensland or I will get tossed into jail!”

Walter says the only way for the law to be restored in Australia is to petition for a Writ of Certiorari to be issued by High Court, then to be served on Her Majesty the Queen. He sent this Petition to the High Court on May 5, 2106.
