Reminds me of the Alliance bus

News.com.au reports:

has been busted breaking one of his policy promises, on his own campaign flyer.

His campaign flyers which promise to “process Australian resources in Australia” and to “create jobs and exports” are printed in China.

Read the fine print on the back of the campaign leaflet and you will find that they were printed in the DongCheng District in Beijing, by Palmer’s company, Queensland Nickel which operates his Nickel and Cobalt mines.

Busted.

This reminds me of the 1990s when the Alliance campaigned on banning second hand car imports from Japan, to protect NZ jobs.

We took delight in pointing out their campaign bus was a Japanese 2nd hand import. Anderton’s response was along the lines of that was the only one they could afford. Never dawned on them that maybe that is why they shouldn’t ban other people from buying them!
