High Court success will re-open Australia

Clive Palmer said today he was confident of a successful outcome with the hard border challenge being heard in the High Court that would lead to the country re-opening.

“There is nothing more certain than the fact that the Labor Premiers are destroying the nation’s economy and wellbeing,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“If this continues, Australia will never be able to repay the debt and we will become a third world country.”

“We are seeing eight suicides per week in WA alone, that’s more than 400 per year. The social damage is incomprehensible.

“It is imperative that the borders are reopened so that trade and commerce can resume, so we can create jobs and so our tourism industry can survive,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“When JobSeeker and JobKeeper expire, we only have our economy to fall back on to protect us.”

Mr Palmer said Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was destined to lose government in the upcoming state election.

“Once she leaves parliament she will not be able to get a job in the commercial world and she will have to move.

“She won’t be able to get a job anywhere and the same will apply for her Labor counterparts Mark McGowan in WA and Daniel Andrews in Victoria.

“Labor is always negative. They are ruining Australian lives,” Mr Palmer said
