Palmer blasts media

The Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, said the Australian media had a lot to answer for.

“I have left the campaign for a moment to be with a terminally-ill family friend,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“First the media attack Bill Shorten  about his mother and now they want to ostracize me at  a time I want to support a terminal-ill family friend.

“The media continually comments on me as a person. Australians are sick of the media’s ethics and morals.

“I look forward to returning to the campaign trail in Adelaide late tonight before heading to Western Australia and then spending election night in Victoria,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Australians know that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a new result. They will not vote Liberal or Labor.

“Labor wants to tax people into oblivion.

As Winston Churchill once said – We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.”
