Geez he's a bit late on the foreign land ownership thing....hard to know where to place the guy on any policy really. Seems like he just wants his own sandpit to play in after getting snubbed by the liberals.

Good for him though...better off being able to be a loose cannon...the major parties were only ever going to take his coin and feather the guys balls to keep the cheques coming. Look forward to plenty of amusingly terrible fonts! Guy needs better design staff.

Assange will bring some sort of 'sexy' Wink

Thin on policy though...seems to be pitching as some vague 'transparency' thing...which is nice enough tho would be good to see some more details. They may actually pick up a couple of senate seats.

Well, Gillard really.

Greens are nutjobs. No way you'd elect them.

Abbott, psycho, vacuous half-wit with no policies beyond three word slogans, with an indication his policies will result in little more than trying to create a dystopian corporatocracy for the benefit of News Limited and the mining companies.

Palmer, lol. I'd rather not take the risk of a GCU job on the entire nation.

Gillard... at least they've got policies.

Well as far as Abbott v Gillard on policy details...id agree the libs are still relying on over arching statements this far out from sept....but at a philosophic level the Libs and Labor at least should have a major difference in the amount of govt intervention they'd want at all.

Labor being the party of believing govt to have the answer to everything...the Libs in theory should be pursuing private sector approaches and a Minarchist style of governing.

As far as corporatocracies go, both parties do that...the existence of industry assistance/bailouts, red tape, high minimum wages, unions...all these things make it harder for new entrepreneurs to establish themselves. This only serves the interests of corporates. So really both Labor and Libs are guilty of this. Its no wonder our small biz failure rates are so high. The current system across the board protects larger established outfits.

Id vote Libs just out of a hope they may live up to their assumed role of trimming the public sector and freeing up business to be able to provide a higher proportion of employment in australia. The worst thing for wealth creation is to have the public sector be so much at the centre of driving the country forward. People make the mistake of thinking taking more from the private sector and coralling it govt expenditure is a good thing. It just isnt in the long run...

Sitting MPs to join federal candidate Clive Palmer's party

BILLIONAIRE federal candidate Clive Palmer said that by tomorrow, two or more current sitting MPs will defect to his party ahead of the election.
Mr Palmer told journalists today that he will run a candidate in every lower house seat, with two or more being current sitting MPs.
He also revealed his Queensland office was broken into last night, and he claims it is part of a political conspiracy.
More to come

Current sitting federal MPs ? I assumed he had just picked up some qld state mps or somethin...

Maybe Craig Thomson is running for them in Dobell!

They should consider trimming down the idea for running in every lower house seat. I know he has the cash to cover it but they will end up with some dregs, liability candidates ...unless they parachute in a bunch of pre-screened people.

Gillard has two types of policies:

1/ Broken ones
&
2/ More taxes

How about this education policy: Take 2.6 billion out of Universities and give it to primary and secondary public schools.
To all die hart Labor Uni-student supporters, you are all pretty quiet about this one.

Peter Slipper joins Clive Palmer's United Australia Party

FORMER Parliamentary Speaker and ex-Liberal MP-turned independent Peter Slipper has joined billionaire Clive Palmer's United Australia Party.
Mr Palmer today confirmed Mr Slipper had applied to become a member of the Party - and his application had been accepted.
But Mr Slipper won't be standing for the seat of Fisher.
A United Australia Party statement said Bill Schoch - Mr Palmer's Coolum Resort manager - remained the Party’s endorsed candidate for Fisher in the next Federal election.

The statement said: "United Australia Party Secretary and endorsed candidate for the seat of Dickson Clive Mensink said the United Australia Party was an open and inclusive party that welcomed members from all political, social and economic backgrounds."
“The United Australia Party is about delivering common sense policies to the nation,” the statement said.
Mr Palmer said the Party wanted to create more jobs and build a stronger economy.
“Taxes need to be reduced to stimulate growth in the economy and restore consumer and business confidence.

The rot has to be stopped.”

United Australia Party intends to field candidates in all seats at the September 14 election.

Damn you, I looked at his policies, clearly they are written to benefit him and his interests.

Quote:

Palmer United Party stands for and is committed in its efforts and vision to carry out the following functions:

Party Officials should not be Lobbyists, thereby taking a strong position on Paid Political Lobbyists saving tax payers dollars and introducing Fair Policies

Abolish Carbon Tax

Revising the current Australian Governments Refugee Policy to ensure Australia is protected and refugees are given opportunities for a better future and lifestyle

Creating Mineral Wealth to continuously contribute to the welfare of the Australian community. This will be achieved by utilising mineral resources from Queensland and Western Australia, and incentives from the Commonwealth of Australia to establish downstream processing in the States of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia ; and exporting products at a higher dollar value, thereby creating more revenue , jobs, tax and more facilities.

Establishing a System where people create wealth in various parts of the country and for that wealth should flow back to the Community. For example, if the region creates wealth it should go back to the community. This way we develop the whole country and not just Sydney and Melbourne, but we develop right across Australia where the wealth is.

SLIPPER THE FIRST FEDERAL MP TO JOIN UAPClive Palmer's United Australia Party now counts former parliamentary speaker Peter Slipper as a member.(0:39 / 694.9KB)
PETER Slipper's membership with Clive Palmer's United Australia Party has "ceased" only hours after it was announced he had joined

The party posted an announcement on its website tonight saying founding members had made the decision, barely five hours after announcing Slipper had been accepted.

"Under clause D26 of the constitution of the party, a majority of foundation members have decided that the membership for Peter Slipper has ceased forthwith," the statement said.

UAP member Alex Douglas, who officially joined the billionaire's party barely two weeks ago, tweeted the news tonight.

"Peter Slipper has had his membership rejected by a majority of the founding members through the constitution of the UAP," he said.
Fellow UAP MP Carl Judge also shared the news.

"UAP Executive have promptly disallowed/rejected membership of Peter Slipper. Federal Leader Clive Palmer will be making more announcements."

Earlier today The Courier-Mail reported that Mr Palmer confirmed Mr Slipper had applied to become a member of the Party - and his application had been accepted.

A United Australia Party statement said Bill Schoch - Mr Palmer's Coolum Resort manager - remained the Party’s endorsed candidate for Fisher in the next Federal election.

The statement said: "United Australia Party Secretary and endorsed candidate for the seat of Dickson Clive Mensink said the United Australia Party was an open and inclusive party that welcomed members from all political, social and economic backgrounds."

“The United Australia Party is about delivering common sense policies to the nation,” the statement said.

UAP renamed as Palmer United Party
Date
May 12, 2013 - 10:30AM

Clive Palmer has changed the name of his political party less than three weeks after it was formed.

The billionaire businessman announced on Sunday his United Australia Party will now be known as the Palmer United Party, to avoid a legal battle with the Australian Electoral Commission.

A group of Brisbanites has already applied to register the Uniting Australia Party, and AEC rules say a new party can be knocked back if it can be mistaken for a ‘‘recognised political party’’.

Mr Palmer has until Monday to register his Palmer United Party with the AEC in time for the September 14 federal election.

He has already trademarked the UAP name but now insists his party’s platform is more important than its name.

And he now has some sympathy for federal MP Bob Katter, who faced similar hurdles when registering the name of Katter’s Australian Party.

‘‘What we stand for is far more important than our name,’’ Mr Palmer said in a statement.

‘‘So many groups are trying to stop and undermine the party efforts to provide good government.

‘‘I now understand the practical hurdles that Bob Katter and his party faced.

‘‘People should not be destroyed because they are offering to serve the country.’’

He pledged to reform the AEC if he’s elected prime minister to allow for parties and candidates ‘‘to be encouraged to stand at election rather than to be discouraged by the act to participate in our democracy’’.

The Palmer United Party will announce its Queensland Senate team later this week and aims to stand candidates in all seats in the coming federal election.
