Co­conut is still wait­ing for the open­ing of the Cow Bay toi­let, sus­pect­ing there might be a tasty spread on hand by the coun­cil for all the of­fi­cial guests. In the mean­time he has main­tained his calo­ries thanks to sneak­ing into the QT Re­sort’s won­der­ful birth­day party. Thanks QT! And while he was swept up in the mad­ness on the Estilo dance floor fu­elled by the driv­ing rhythms of the Latin orches­tra, he did no­tice a need to up­date his ap­pear­ance some­what. Not­ing that West­ern civil­i­sa­tion has prob­a­bly reached Peak Tat­too, he has de­cided to get one done forth­with. Ex­cept he is go­ing to have de­veg­e­tate an ex­ten­sive area, painfully, even be­fore he greets the tat­too nee­dle. Ni­cholls, Lawrence Spring­borg and another bloke, on a vist to Cape York where they were on the look­out, the paper said, for an LNP can­di­date to run in the next state elec­tion. Does that mean David Kemp­ton is no longer in favour? Any­way, it was mere days af­ter this con­vivial lit­tle party got back to Bris­bane that Lawrence was rolled as leader by Tim Ni­cholls. Must have been in­ter­est­ing on those long plane flights up there and back . . . Any­way, never one to be counted out, David Kemp­ton mean­while has chal­lenged sit­ting mem­ber for Cook, Billy Gor­don, to a de­bate on the pro­posed changes to land clear­ing laws, with Mr K mak­ing a very large do­na­tion to char­ity if Mr G ac­cepts. No one’s hold­ing their breath . . . cent to un­seat the ven­er­a­ble War­ren Entsch, who by the way has won all of the six elec­tions he has ever con­tested. Sports­bet also likes the Big W – it has him favourite at $1.50 ahead of La­bor’s Shar­ryn Howes at $2.75.
