Had no idea why there was a bounce in my step and a song on my lips this morning – and then I found out the great @deesnider had indeed delivered what he promised – in court he slayed, put @CliveFPalmer under the blade, and now he gets paid! 🤟https://t.co/XmvunQ6oi0

I wish they'd stop reporting that he is a politician. He's a billionaire miner that wants to use politics to make his mining companies more profitable. pic.twitter.com/uZIRK0ZAsL
