Can voters get past Palmer's billions?

As soon as the United Australia Party is registered donations will have to be disclosed, and voters can decide if it’s a party Clive Palmer simply belongs to, or one built wholesale around his wishes.

The Clive Palmer political juggernaut is gaining momentum, with the mining billionaire announcing on Friday that he’s about to launch a TV advertising campaign to raise awareness of the as yet unregistered United Australia Party.

In announcing the campaign, Palmer did not reveal how much it would cost. He was also unsure exactly how much money he’s personally given to the United Australia Party – though he did say others within the party had also put in money.
