SHOW AND TELL
Good news everyone – Coconut has passed the auditions for the Full Monty! Who knew that there was a spot in the line-up, so far replete with tradie hunks – or hunk-ish ones – for a slightly older, portly gentleman? Coconut can hardly believe it himself, though is quite prepared to believe his prior acting experience – as a crowd extra in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – probably did the trick. wasn’t the best one for Jeff, who had to stand down as Lord Mayor of Newcastle, having been caught up in an investigation into alleged bribery of some politicians in the Newcastle area. He was never charged with anything, however. As it happens, he may be heading for some sort of future reengagement in politics, according to the local sheets. But not helping matters is the fact the current mayor is trying to blame the former mayor (McCloy) and other users for the extensive damage to the mayoral Toyota Camry she inherited and for which she has now put in a bill for repairs. Jeff wasn’t at a loss to defend his reputation the other day. He said he had “absolutely not” damaged the Camry. “No, everything I have I keep in immaculate condition, my cars, my house, my boats,” he said.
