United Australia Party calls for referendum on abolishing state governments

United Australia Party calls for referendum on abolishing state governments

The Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Craig Kelly, and party Chairman Clive Palmer, have called for the abolition of state governments to save billions of dollars and improve efficiency.

“Australia is over-governed and over-legislated. We have far too many politicians and a duplication of roles,” Mr Kelly said.

“State politicians are out of touch. Increasing resources and expanding local governments would be a far better alternative for delivering meaningful and effective government to all Australians.

“Getting rid of unnecessary state governments would turn Australia into one efficient nation, comprising a federal government and expanded local councils.

“The duplication of departments and activities would be eliminated and the savings resulting from not paying the salaries and expenses of hundreds of needless politicians could be much better spent on improving services and the livelihoods of all Australians,” Mr Kelly said.

Clive Palmer has called for a referendum on abolishing state governments to be held at the same time as the next Federal Election.

“It is time for Australia to decide on whether they want a more unified and efficient system or to continue with wasteful, ineffective state governments,” Mr Palmer said.

“The United Australia Party wants a referendum on this issue so all Australians can have their say,” Mr Palmer said.

Undemocratic ‘no jab, no job’ policy ruining lives: Palmer

Undemocratic ‘no jab, no job’ policy ruining lives: Palmer

Chairman of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, has called on employers and heads of government stop instituting coercive practices forcing people to be vaccinated or lose their jobs.

“Thousands of distressed Australians are contacting the United Australia Party because they have been told ‘no jab, no job’ by their employer,” Mr Palmer said.

“These coercive measures are causing untold levels of anxiety, stress and financial hardship to innocent Australians.

“Many are public servants. They feel they have no voice and nowhere to turn. I want to assure all Australians that our party is here to listen and make a difference.

“We will fight to protect the values that have been built and developed in Australia since federation,” Mr Palmer said.

“It is undemocratic and wrong to deny any Australian their constitutional rights and freedoms because they choose not to take part in a vaccination program for personal or medical reasons.

“The data is clear. The virus doesn’t discriminate between those vaccinated and those not vaccinated. So-called ‘fully vaccinated’ people can be still be infected and can also pass the virus on to others,” he said.

Mr Palmer said that vaccination, therefore, had no impact on the ability of an individual to perform their workplace duties.

“Hundreds of people are contacting UAP every day as they feel they have nowhere else to turn. Nobody is helping them or even hearing them.

“It’s time employers and governments stopped to think about the havoc and distress they are causing in people’s lives,” Mr Palmer said.

UAP welcomes legal threats from TGA and the Labor Party

UAP welcomes legal threats from TGA and the Labor Party

UAP Chairman Clive Palmer says he welcomes the legal threats made by the head of the TGA, John Skerritt, against the Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Craig Kelly.

“Any legal action against Craig Kelly or the United Australia Party will provide an opportunity to subpoena and cross examine John Skerritt and Greg Hunt about each of the 483 deaths which have been reported to the TGA and the 75 pages of over 46,000 reported adverse reactions.

“If John Skerrit seeks a legal confrontation by threatening to take Craig Kelly – a member of the House of Representatives who has sworn to protect all Australians – to court I am sure the truth will be revealed.

“All Mr Kelly did was publish the TGA’s own reports which all Australians have a right to know,” Mr Palmer said.

“The TGA report clearly highlights that the COVID-19 vaccine treatment has been responsible the deaths of 483 Australians and over 46,000 adverse reactions,” he said.

“We would welcome any chance to see Professor Skerritt cross-examined under oath so the truth can be heard about the vaccinations and the harmful effects they have on thousands of Australians.

“The United Australia Party would like to hold the Government to account for providing pharmaceutical companies with a full indemnity if they kill or cause harm to Australians being administered COVID vaccines,” Mr Palmer said.

“We would be questioning why the Government has given the pharmaceutical companies an indemnity for any claims related to the injuries and deaths their vaccines may cause.

“It should be concerning for all Australians that we don’t have the required one, three or five-year safety data for the use of this vaccine on humans or animals, and there has been no safety testing on pregnant women or children,” Mr Palmer said.

“History has shown that governments have often been wrong. That propaganda and cover-ups have often taken place. That millions have died because people in authority lack the courage and the proprietary to follow through with the principles and ethics of their calling,” Mr Palmer said.

“John Skerritt is incompetent and should resign from his position immediately.

“The Hight Court of Australia has reconfirmed the implied term in our constitution of political free speech.

“The United Australia Party is a registered political party under the electoral act and Craig Kelly is member of the House of Representatives and therefore has the right of free political communication with all Australians,” Mr Palmer said.

Berejiklian’s divisive and discriminatory comments condemned

Media release

Berejiklian’s divisive and discriminatory comments condemned

The Leader of the United Australia Party, Craig Kelly, has condemned the statements made by NSW Premier Berejiklian at her daily media conferences.

“When I heard the NSW Premier yesterday say she ‘would not want to be anywhere with someone who is not vaccinated’ and ‘we can’t afford to have unvaccinated people with mixing vaccinated people’, I was outraged and absolutely disgusted,” Mr Kelly said.

“I have never heard such despicable, vile, divisive, unscientific and discriminatory comments from Australian political leader.

“The evidence and the science from overseas clearly shows that a person’s chance of having COVID and their chances of spreading it to others, is very similar regardless of whether they’ve been injected twice or not at all,” he said.

“Domestic Vaccine Passports are useless because a person who is fully vaccinated can still get infected and the spread the virus to others.”

“Berejiklian’s shameful plan to turn NSW into a bio-medical security state, where ‘vaccine apartheid’ is the norm and citizens are forced to show their private medical records just to get cut a haircut makes Australia an international laughing stock,” Craig Kelly said.

“Berejiklian’s words today are a betrayal of everything that Australia stands for and I call on Liberal MPs to publicly disassociate themselves for these disgraceful, divisive and discriminatory comments.”

United Australia Party to abolish National Cabinet

United Australia Party to abolish National Cabinet

The United Australia Party will abolish the unconstitutional so-called ‘National Cabinet’ and restore freedom to the Australian people, party leader Craig Kelly said today.

“Since federation, the Australian Federal Government Cabinet has been comprised from Federal Members of Parliament, voted for and elected by the Australian people,” Craig Kelly said.

“The current Morrison Government has imposed this unconstitutional so-called ‘National Cabinet’ that has no legal basis.

“The United Australia Party believes this so-called ‘National Cabinet’ should be abolished as soon as possible, with traditional government and freedom restored to the Australian people.

“The so-called National Cabinet is dominated by parochial State Premiers who are putting their short term political interests ahead the national interest.

“Further, this National Cabinet is made up of mainly Labor premiers that have no understanding of the harm they are inflicting small businesses. Their policies are breaking up families as a result of additional financial stress.

“We are seeing suicides at unprecedent levels. This is a result of Scott Morrison and the so-called National Cabinet’s policies and actions. They are destined to destroy the Australian economy.

“I urge all Australians to get behind the United Australia Party, join our party and stand up for re-opening the country and restoring freedom to the Australian people,”  Craig Kelly said.

No vaccine passports under United Australia Party

Media release

No vaccine passports under United Australia Party

The United Australia Party will end vaccine passports on the grounds they denied people their basic human rights, party leader Craig Kelly said today.

“Vaccine passports serve no purpose other than to deny people their normal human rights,” Mr Kelly said.

“They will be divisive for all Australians, cause social problems as seen in Europe and have the potential to worsen an already growing mental health epidemic in our country, which will have tragic consequences for many Australians.

“It is undemocratic and wrong to deny any Australian their constitutional rights and freedoms because they choose not to take part in a vaccination program for personal or medical reasons,” Mr Kelly said.

Recent US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data from a study of 469 people infected with COVID-19 showed that 74% of those people were fully vaccinated, confirming that anyone can be infected with COVID-19 and be symptomatic to varying degrees of severity, even though they have been injected with two doses of vaccine.

“Of the people hospitalised in the USA with COVID-19, a higher percentage have been vaccinated than not,” Mr Kelly said

“Fully vaccinated people who contract the virus can also pass the virus on to others.

The United Australia Party will fight ensure vaccine passports are not introduced in Australia. If they are, we will challenge the decision in the High Court on behalf of the Australian people.”

Fastest growing political party in Australian history

The United Australia Party has expanded its membership by 30,000 in less than two weeks, becoming the fastest growing political party in Australian history, chairman Clive Palmer has announced.

“Over the last 10 days our party membership has grown by more than 30,000.  We have seen an average of 3,000 new members join every day since Craig Kelly was announced as our party leader,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“This is a watershed moment in Australian political history.

“At this rate the United Australian Party will have more party members than the combined memberships of both Liberal and Labor.

“Craig Kelly is the most outstanding political leader and he will be our next Prime Minister,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Every Australian should support Craig Kelly as he stands to stop lockdowns and get our economy moving again.

“Under the Liberals and Labor, we are seeing families break up, the economy declining and an increase in mental health problems.

“Contractors and private businesses all need to get back to where they were. The Government is the main cause of this destruction.

“At this time Australia needs a truly representative government, we need strong leadership and the United Australia Party is the only party that can achieve this,’’ Mr Palmer said.

Australian minerals should be processed at home: Palmer

Media release

Australian minerals should be processed at home: Palmer

Australia is failing to maximise revenue from its prized mineral resources by continuing to send unprocessed ores overseas, according to the Chairman of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer.

“Australia’s rich mineral resources are being squandered,” Mr Palmer said.

“We can create thousands of jobs and turbo-charge our exports by processing our mineral resources in Australia, leading to enormous revenue injections and better schools and hospitals.”

“Australia is failing to maximise revenue from its prized mineral resources by continuing to send unprocessed ores overseas.

“The United Australia Party’s downstream processing policy will see more stages of the mining process happen on Australian soil rather than offshore, resulting in much higher returns, along with stimulants for both economic growth and job creation,” Mr Palmer said.

“We can use Australia’s mineral resources to kick-start our economy by setting up downstream processing in the states such as South Australia and Victoria that are not resource rich.

“For too long we’ve treated our mineral-rich states like quarries where their resources have been taken for granted and shipped off to places like Japan and China,” he said.
