I refer to the article wherein Stuart George has decreed protesters will be banned from future Casino Beef Week parades – Echonetdaily 11 July.
Come on, Stuie, this sounds as if it’s the swan song of the George family and the National Party!
Or is it payback to Georgina Ramsay’s letter in the June edition of Nimbin Good Times about her experience at Beef Week outside the pub as she left the parade when your mate tried to trip her up and then called her a F*%@+#g Greenie bitch?
To get rid of the political agenda, Stuie, you should step down from Metgasco and also from being Councillor George Stuart. Oops, so sorry, I must be mixing you up with the character in CSG The Musical – I mean Cr Stuart George of Richmond Valley Council and Beef Week. Go get a job where politics are not an issue, and save the face of the George family. Look at what you have done to your poor old Dad. You’ve ruined his political career and now he has to hide behind a cardboard cut-out in his Lismore office window.
What about the Summerland Drags float in Beef Week? This flies in the face of the aviation community at Casino aerodrome and has nothing to do with farming. And what about the Metgasco float loaded with drilling pipes. Are you going to ban these floats as well? Metgasco is certainly not community oriented, and CSG is definitely against all forms of farming.
Are you and the Beef Week committee afraid that Metgasco and FEDC will pull their sponsorship of Beef Week? After all, Metgasco and its Shannon Brook holding ponds construction company, FEDC, have been throwing sponsorship money at more community events than I’ve had hot dinners. Poor old Roger at Coraki Radio 88.9FM has his lips sealed and daren’t utter a word about CSG on air for fear of losing the sponsorships given to Summerland Drags, Lismore Speedway, Jukebox Lismore Inc and all the rest. Metgasco hasn’t earned a cent to date, yet it has been throwing shareholders’ money around like water.
There was nothing for kids to be afraid of at Beef Week on the Lock the Gate float, as the kids had seen it all before. It was merely 40 people holding up five rows of bamboo farm gates. So, come on, Stuie, show us those letters, emails and records of who phoned you, as I think you are a bull artist and should go in the ring at Beef Week.
