Might as well swan off now


Who else thought he’s been sounding a bit “politiciany” lately?

MINING magnate Clive Palmer is due to take on Wayne Swan at the next federal election, announcing today he will seek Liberal National Party preselection for the seat of Lilley.

Mr Palmer said today he was seeking to run in the seat because he and the Treasurer had “differing views of what was good for the country”.

With Labor as polular as cancer at the moment – and even if they knife Gillard, their repuation will still be in tatters – toppling the lame duck Swan shouldn’t be a problem.

Just go easy on the CIA stuff, Clive.

UPDATE

No Clive, but regardless, you could probably run almost anyone you like. And the bloke Abbott likes isn’t just anyone.

    To paraphrase a beautiful poem:

    Oh to be in England- oops- Lilley -now that’s April’s here…hang on, I AM in Lilley! To wax more lyrical:
    ‘Life is goood in the Sunshine State’ (even if ‘raindrops keep falling on my head’)…Let’s just say I’m feeling happy…

  1. Hi,
    If I remember correctly Swan only won his seat in Lilley because of the green preferences, and I think Rudd almost lost his seat as well last election, I maybe wrong but that is what I remember.

    I could only smile when I read about Clive, you just never know with him whether or not he is joking. 🙂

Surely you're thinking something...
