Clive Palmer doesn't give a damn about corruption.
What he gives a damn about is seizing another publicity opportunity to raise people's awareness of his disgrace of a political party.
The man is not interested in bettering Australia or the lives of it's citizens. What he is interested in is furthering his own private business
opportunities and his own personal wealth. He has chosen to do this by inserting him self into politics.
He is a billionaire. He didn't become a billionaire by giving a damn about the little guy.
While we are a democracy and it is his right to stand for election, people should think not twice, but thrice on voting for him or one of his
What Clive Palmer represents is as worse(if not worse) then what Pauline Hanson and her One Nation party represented.
Corruption? Perhaps. But I believe a minor party candidate got up in the senate vote..Shooters and Recreation party or something like that. It's not
like one of the two majors benefited from 1,400 lost ballot papers.
And lets be honest, this sort of thing does not happen on a regular basis. It is rare for something like this to happen in Australia. To yell and
scream it's corruption is ridiculous. Call for an investigation into what happened, and how to prevent it from happening again, sure. But to call it
corruption straight up is nonsense, and Clive Palmer is only looking to score political points and muddy the waters for his opponents who will be
around in politics probably a lot longer then he or his party will.
