Clive Palmer Votes To Reduce Tax On Own Companies |
A billionaire, who runs several large mining combinations, is denied an important approval for a coal port on Queensland’s coast.
Enraged, he turns on the political party he has bankrolled for years, and starts his own party. Backed by millions of dollars of advertising, and enjoying blanket media coverage encouraged by the canny antics of its founder, the new party secures a significant minority of the vote in the 2013 federal election.
