PUP woes: Palmer no longer united

Clive Palmer has ruled out recontesting his the seat of Fairfax, and also ruled out standing for a Senate seat.

Palmer has claimed that ‘There are some excellent people who have nominated to be endorsed to stand for the Palmer United Party in the Senate in Queensland’, but the Courier-Mail reports that ‘Dozens of one-time Palmer United candidtes are refusing to stand for the party again – with many blaming a falling out with the self-professed billionaire leader Clive Palmer.

… ‘Only former Queensland Nickel executive Martin Brewster – Mr Palmer’s nephew – confirmed he would run for the seat of Herbert in Townsille, despite having been director of procurement at the failed Queensland Nickel plant.’
