Confident Clive Palmer predicts tax-payer funding for nuclear power

The Australian Tribune 10 May 19,  “……………What’s needed for Palmer to win Nuclear Project?

Mr Palmer is confident that his party could hold the balance of power in the senate, which would guarantee the go ahead of the project.

We will need about five to six seats and our polling is showing we will win five to six seats pretty easily and we should be able to win more,’ he said.

Australia has had nuclear reactors for 50 years in Lucas Heights in the middle of Sydney.

There are no safety issues there, they operate every day and they’re still there.’

Mr Palmer is calling for the federal government to fund the power plant, using the Commonwealth government’s previous handling of steelworks as an example.

The Commonwealth government in 1913 provided a guaranteed establishment to SteelWorks in Whyalla and they can do it again,’ Senator Palmer said.
