“Lambie on a Secret Mission to Blow Up PUP” says Clive Palmer
- Explosive new explosive allegations!

Clive Palmer has escalated his public spat against his Deputy Leader Jacqui Lambie accusing her of being a “Liberal Party plant” from the outset with a mission to “blow the Palmer United Party (PUP) up.”
The PUP leader said the outspoken Tasmanian was planted by someone powerful and ordered to “act irrationally”.
“When you start a new party like our party the established parties and others try to wreck it,” Mr Palmer told The Gutter Trash.
“She’s been sent in there by someone to cause trouble and I think that’s the reality of it,” he said.
“You’ve only got to look at what happened to all the other parties, the tactics that were used to discredit them … and there’s no reason to think that wouldn’t happen to our party.”
The bizarre allegation is just the latest in an increasingly nasty public spat between the pair that is almost certain to see Senator Lambie leave the PUP this week to sit as an independent.
Mr Palmer accused Senator Lambie of plotting to defect to the Australian Defence Veterans Party since the start of this year.
He also claimed there were “questions” about her use of disability support payments.
“Was she receiving disability payments from the Commonwealth for being unable to work while receiving a full-time salary at the same time from the Palmer United Party?” he wrote in a statement.
Senator Lambie has denied ever receiving such payments.
Mr Palmer said Senator Lambie “doesn’t want to resign, she wants to stay as long as she can to grab as many headlines as she can”.
Asked why he would not sack her from his party, Mr Palmer said: “She’s not employed by our party.”
“We’ve got a team investigating her … we want to get to the bottom of this.”
CLIVE’S TIRADE AGAINST LAMBIE:
- Took a PUP pay cheque while receiving disability support pension
- Used PUP money and resources to try to set up a rival party
- Has never seen active service
- Used plight of veterans to further her political career
- Lied to the media about PUP colleagues including Mr Palmer
LAME DUCK GOVT
Meanwhile the Opposition has revealed that the Government has introduced more than 100 bills that have not passed the Senate since the last election. It’s been six months since Treasurer Joe Hockey announced his first, and presumably his last federal budget.
