Clive Palmer’s capacity to waste a political opportunity is boundless. When all UAP needs to do is seem vaguely sensible to capitalise on hatred for major parties, out trots the buffoon and his nonsense.
I can’t believe that any serious political player would dilute a winning message on incompetent, immoral and insulated governments of both major parties to pursue…abolition of the States.
I had hoped for more in this Palmer incarnation. His initial press conference was surprisingly impressive. He put narrative-pushing dimwit journalists in their place. He refused to be drawn on clear gotchas. He was calm. Finally, I hoped, he knows his place, and his real place is behind a chequebook.
