United Australia Party appoints Wayne Moore Assistant Shadow Treasurer

The United Australia Party has announced the appointment of NSW entrepreneur and business proprietor Wayne Moore as Shadow Assistant Treasurer and Shadow Minister for Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs.

Mr Moore is also on the United Australia Party’s Senate team for New South Wales.

Based on the NSW Central Coast, Mr Moore founded and owns a successful tyre centre.

He is respected for his excellent management skills, client relations and leadership qualities.

Active in the local community, Mr Moore is past president of the Lake Munmorah Progress Association.

Federal Leader Clive Palmer said Mr Moore’s strong work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit and community values made him an excellent fit for the United Australia Party.

“The established parties talk about helping the country but all they’ve ever done is stifle political alternatives,” Mr Palmer said.

“Unlike them, the United Australia Party is not comprised of career politicians. We are a party made up of genuine Australians who want to serve the country, to change the course of history and steer in a bright new era for Australia,’’ he said.

“We can’t trust our current politicians. Stand up – defend our country. Put Australia first.

“The best way to protect Australia’s future is to Vote 1, the United Australia Party,’’ Mr Palmer said.

Darren Winter wins Shadow Sports Minister post for United Australia Party

Darren Winter wins Shadow Sports Minister post for United Australia Party

Café owner and Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame inductee Darren Winter has been appointed Shadow Sports Minister for the United Australia Party.

Married with four children and one grandchild, Mr Winter is a long-time Hobart resident and owner of the Lauderdale Bakehouse which he has operated for 16 years.

He is the party’s candidate for Franklin in the 2019 Federal Election.

An excellent footballer, he played with the Geelong and Essendon reserves before moving to Tasmania in 1989, where he amassed 240 games and was part of nine premierships with the Clarence District Football Club, three as a playing coach.

Mr Winter currently coaches the Lauderdale senior team which competes in the Tasmanian State League. He is in his 10th year as senior coach.

“Australian politics is in a mess. I want to be part of the solution cleaning the mess up and gaining much needed respect. Our politicians are embarrassing not only in Australia but also overseas, this needs to be fixed urgently,’’ he said.

“Tasmania has been left behind for far too long, we are clearly seen as second class citizens.  The United Australia Party aims to put Tasmania firmly on the map and make our state the best in the nation.”

Mr Winter grew up in a one parent family after his father tragically passed away when he was 10 years old.

“I witnessed firsthand the struggles low income families go through. My mother did an amazing job raising five children on a widow’s pension.

“I have joined the United Australia Party to ensure no one gets left behind. Everybody should be entitled to a quality education, good health services and be on the same even playing field as the person standing next to them,’’ he said.

“Sport is the perfect way to build health bodies and minds, learn about teamwork and setting goals,’’ he said.

United Australia Party appoints Colin Thompson Shadow Minister for Resources and Energy

Media release

United Australia Party appoints Colin Thompson Shadow Minister for Resources and Energy

Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, has announced the appointment of projects manager Colin Thompson as Shadow Minister for Resources and Energy.

Mr Thompson is the United Australia Party’s federal candidate for Dawson on the North Queensland coast.

He started his working career as a fitter and turner and progressed through supervisory positions into senior management roles covering the food, processing, manufacturing, power and mining industries.

Mr Thompson is a firm believer in communication and clear direction as the key to success.

He said the United Australia Party would create jobs and generate more revenue by encouraging the use of the mineral resource wealth of Western Australia and Queensland to support downstream manufacturing in states and territories that don’t have those resources.

“Japan has become the world’s third largest economy by processing Australian resources.  The cost of energy is more expensive in Japan and Japan suffers from the tyranny of distance. Wages are also higher, yet Australia sells its mineral ores at a low price per tonne and Japan sells final products for many thousands times more.

“Processing Australian resources at home will create jobs, increase exports and provide a higher standard of living,’’ he said.

“The United Australia Party will also help Australian families by reducing power prices. We will order a state-by-state review of the power company infrastructure loans we’re all paying for,’’ Mr Thompson said.
