Tear down the wall: Clive Palmer

Clive Palmer says it’s time to tear down the wall in Western Australia and let dollars flow in and out of the state.

“The WA Government will destroy the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people for decades by continuing to ignore expert advice and keep its borders closed,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“It’s time to tear down the wall and let dollars flow in and out of WA.”

Mr Palmer said it was critical to boost interstate visitation to WA so tourism operators could look to a better future.

“People want to experience the Kimberley, the dolphins at Monkey Mia and the sunsets at Broome.

“Closing the borders for economic benefit is beyond belief with WA now having the highest per-capita rate of COVD-19 cases in the country.

“With eight suicides every week in Western Australia and domestic violence up 300 percent it is so important the borders are open to save lives.

“It is imperative that the borders are reopened so that trade and commerce can resume, so we can create jobs and so our tourism industry can survive,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“There is no reason why WA should not immediately open its borders to the states where the virus is under control,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Surely Mark McGowan has a heart or does he want to be another Daniel Andrews?” Mr Palmer said.
