WILL CO­CONUT RUN?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Many peo­ple have been sug­gest­ing Co­conut throw his hat in the ring for what seems a likely state elec­tion any day (or month) now. Co­conut is flat­tered, and does feel that he would have much to con­trib­ute due to his ex­per­tise in small busi­ness and min­er­als ex­plo­ration (to wit, as a beach­comber with a metal de­tec­tor). Just how many other par­lia­men­tar­i­ans have such ex­pe­ri­ence? No, they’re all jour­nal­ists and lawyers. Any­way, some­one else be­ing pestered by such sug­ges­tions cur­rently is our good mayor, M’am Leu. Her May­or­ness po­litely scoffs at such sug­ges­tions she might run. Still, as Co­conut knows, it’s nice to be asked. And if you want to flat­ter some­one, then it’s the eas­i­est thing in the world. Next week Co­conut will bring you more news of peo­ple who aren’t run­ning.
