Who is running the country?

Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, has asked who the faceless person is running the country while Prime Minister Scott Morrison is off touring Queensland by bus.

“Just who is running the country while he is away?’’ Mr Palmer said.

The Prime Minister is travelling from the Gold Coast to far north Queensland by bus this week campaigning in critical marginal seats. He will visit regional centres including Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Gladstone and Mackay.

“Why is there so much attention on Queensland and not the other states? Government should for all of Australia,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“The country needs to be united, which is the charter of the United Australia Party.

“Government shouldn’t be about ideology it should be about solutions to problems that men and women have created.

“Problems created by men and women can be solved by men and women.

“We need to do the best we can by Australia to make Australia great and put Australia first.

“The United Australia Party is uniting all under a common purpose with a plan.

“We can have a secure and positive future. Together, united we can achieve the extraordinary,’’ Mr Palmer said.
