Palmer blasts Hanson’s ‘Claytons’ High Court border challenge

The leader of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party has blasted One Nation senator Pauline Hanson for her ‘Claytons” High Court challenge to Queensland’s border closures.

Mr Palmer himself this week lodged documents with the High Court, declaring the similar border closure of Western Australia as unconstitutional which he will be viewing as a test case for pursuing similar action in Queensland.

“My intentions are very clear when it comes to fighting these closures and doing what I can to rebuild jobs and prosperity in Queensland,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Actions speak louder than words.

“Senator Hanson is crowd funding her campaign and will be lucky to raise enough to pay a QC for one hour.

“She is on a generous $200,000-plus salary per year, on top of numerous other incentives. She should do it offer her own bat.

“Queenslanders deserve better than this meaningless publicity stunt,’’ Mr Palmer said.
