Palmer responds to Mark ‘The Menace’ McGowan

Premier Mark McGowan was proving himself to be the real menace to the people of Western Australia over his unreasonable coronavirus border closure, Clive Palmer said today.

“Mark ‘The Menace’ McGowan knows the mortality rate for West Australians hasn’t increased because of COVID-19 yet he continues to mislead the people of WA for political grand standing,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“There are other highly contagious viruses, for example Hepatitis B, which result in thousands of deaths every year. COVID-19 has claimed very few lives in WA, yet has led to unprecedented border closures and devastation to the economy,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“When the federal government stops JobSeeker and JobKeeper, WA will face very uncertain times. Mark McGowan is a menace for not opening the borders and leading the great state of Western Australia forward,’’ he said.
