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!

    Palmer is like a lot of businessmen. Confused idiots when it comes to politics, or behind what ever political cronyist in whatever party they can find who will pass regulations to boost their profit line.

    One clear thing about socialism as a political system, it allows the corruption of crony capitalism to grow like tomatoes in a hot house.

    The Aus Green Party had negotiations with Palmer’s mob around preference allocations which was the other side of Hypocrisy, Greens cuddling the single biggest coal miner in the whole bloody country.
