Senator Brian Burston to lead United Australia Party in the Senate
The Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, confirmed in Canberra today that New South Wales Senator Brian Burston had joined the United Australia Party and would lead the Party in the Senate.
Clive Palmer’s Chief of Staff, James McDonald, has laughed off suggestions his boss is a bully.
“I publicly support Clive Palmer and wish to confirm that at no time have I ever been bullied by him or witnessed him bullying other people in our office,’’ Mr McDonald said.
Western Australia’s only Federal Parliamentarian independent of the major parties, Senator Zhenya ‘Dio’ Wang, will seek industry views on his proposed improvements to laws to re-establish the Australian Building and Construction Commission given the absence of a response from the Government.
