HARD TO READ: Clive Palmer’s climate policy, and his conditions for supporting government plans, is causing headaches for the coalition.

Is Palmer a real climate convert?

Some people think, money can buy everything. They forget that sooner rather then later, they get found out. Unfortunately Mr. Palmer is doing a lot of damage in the interim, for which the country/ we the taxpayers, have to foot the repair bill. As a business man he should know better than to blubber his way into Parliament , thinking that he can make a difference. We the taxpayers gave this Government a mandate. Everybody knew what they were about, so 'everybody opposite' should respect that.
