I'd like to congratulate Peter Campion on being selected to run for the seat of Kennedy for the UAP. Clive personally rang him and told him he had the job. I also applied for my area and was short listed but I haven't been given the phone call yet. I'm extremely jealous!!!!!!! I live in hope, but nonetheless, whatever my outcome, I will be doing all I can to support the great man win come next election. Give him all the support you can troops!!!!!!!

I too add my congratulations to Peter Campion on his early preselection as a candidate for the UAP in the forthcoming federal election. However, it should not come as a surprise. Or that Clive Palmer should phone Peter to inform him personally.
Peter's daughter Vicki is married to Barnaby Joyce, Federal Leader of the National Party, and Deputy PM in the Morrison led Coalition government. Barnaby is Peter's son in law, and father of Peter's two grandchildren. Clive Palmer was made a lifetime member of the National Party back in 1992, in recognition of his years of service and generous financial support of that party.
Barnaby and the Nationals, together with Labor, have been in total lockstep in implementing and policing all of the scamdemic nonsense that is currently destroying this country. On October 10, 2021, Barnaby, as Acting PM, announced a major crackdown on social media sites that "do not control and regulate contributors". He was immediately backed up in this by PM Morrison, who was away at the time representing Australia at the latest COP Climate Change Carnival.
Barnaby's press release starts off by naming Facebook, but one doesn't have to read very far into it to discover it is primarily aimed at sites that spread "misinformation" about Covid 19. In fact in the article Barnaby approvingly refers readers to an organisation called 'Reset'. Reset is primarily geared to stamping out sites that "spread disinformation about Covid 19". A cursory glance at the management team at Reset reveals a who's who of high ranking knobs from Wall Street and Big Pharma. Reset is ultimately financed by Blackrock.
Clive and Craig both jumped on the 'sack them all' bandwagon which has become the catchcry of the anti-vax protests around the country. Both Clive and Craig have borrowed and promoted the idea of numbering the sitting member last in the coming election. However, in one of his staged press conferences a couple of weeks ago Clive openly admitted to intending to use the allocation of UAP preferences to coax Liberal and National party sitting members to support his anti vax mandate views.
Similarly, last week Craig recorded a rebuttal of the views expressed by one Romeo Georges. In that twenty three minute address Craig attacks the Liberal, Labor, and the Greens several times, but the Nationals are only mentioned once, in the final two minutes. Further, in the same address Craig states an intention to swap preferences with "some" Coalition candidates, who, according to Craig, are "good people". Surely if they were "good people", then like him, they would no longer be representing the Liberal or National parties?
This duopoly of views is repeated at the UAP website. Liberal, Labor and the Greens are repeatedly denounced as evil - quite correctly in my view. But one has to dig deep to find any mention of the Nationals, who are equally to blame for what is happening in this country. Without the support of the Nationals in the Coalition, we would not have the government we have. It would be a Labor government. Not that it would make any difference.
Conversely, the Greens only hold one seat in the Federal House of Representatives, the inner city seat of Melbourne, held by Adam Bandt. By all means number him last if you live in that electorate, but in any other seat numbering the Greens last only ensures the election, or reelection, of a Liberal, Labor, or National party representative. Nationally the Greens support has been dropping ever since the 2013 election. As obnoxious as they are, they are but a minor irritation compared to the real problems confronting us today.
There is a lot more but I have run out of puff for the time being. Please don't misunderstand my intentions in writing all this. I supported Peter Campion in the last QLD state election, and would do so again if he needs it. I know him to be a decent and honorourable guy. But like many Australians, he is utterly naive when it comes to the dirty business of party politics. I am a member of the UAP and in the coming election my first and second preferences will almost certainly go to the UAP candidate and whoever represents Riccardo Bosi's Australia One group. But there are a lot of questions that need answering between now and then. I will write further on this over the coming weeks, as we approach the election.
In Australia politics is a dirty business even at the best of times, and these are not the best of times.
