Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Our erst­while MP Billy Gor­don pops up more the closer we get to the next elec­tion.

Some­one in his of­fice should tell him it doesn’t work like it does in school.

You might get a pass­ing grade in an exam if you cram your stud­ies with a few days left af­ter skip­ping most classes, but you don’t get to do that in pol­i­tics.

Ra­dio si­lence and ab­sen­teeism won’t get washed away by more ac­tiv­ity in the months lead­ing up to a bal­lot.

His con­stituents are likely to re­call his neg­li­gence if he chooses to run again.

Cook won’t back you this time Billy, you’ve proven your worth.

Luke Theobald, Port Dou­glas
