Ghost of Bill Shorten and Bob Brown still alive

The Chairman of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party, Clive Palmer together with Queensland Senator Matt Canavan, will address a rally in Clermont this Saturday, October 10.

“The memory of Shifty Shorten and Bob Brown together trying to introduce a death tax last federal election reminds us what Labor is capable of,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Don’t believe anything Labor says. Australians know all too well that politicians say one thing before an election, and then change their promises once voted in,’’ he said.

The deputy leader of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party, Anna Palmer, said families had been devastated by Labor’s lies.

“If Labor is re-elected, it gives them four years to introduce a death tax, which will be used to fill the coffers of unionists,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

“Labor is hell-bent in changing Queensland forever. As my husband says, Labor is wholly negative. It’s time to give them the boot, we need a new deal,’’ she said.

“We need real leadership that moves forward when others step back. All leaders need to send Labor a message that they are dreaming.

“Under a returned Labor Government, we will see family assets taken by the state. Our children and grandchildren will have assets chiselled out from them after the hard efforts and endeavours of those before them,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

“They have destroyed families and our economic future. We need to cut the red tape, eliminate payroll tax and eliminate land tax to make our state stronger and more competitive, and provide employment for our people

“We need to get the state moving forward,” Mrs Palmer said.
