Lambie throws down the gauntlet on Defence pay

Jacqui Lambie has lashed out at her leader Clive Palmer for failing to support her protest against the meagre pay deal for Defence personnel and has left open the possibility of a Palmer United Party split.

Senator Lambie’s initial plea for soldiers to hijack Remembrance Day and turn their backs on government MPs speaking in honour of Australia’s war dead was condemned the RSL, the government and the opposition.

Mr Palmer also rejected her protest campaign but backed the cause.

The Tasmanian senator then upped the stakes and threatened on Thursday to block all government legislation if the Defence Force weren’t given a better pay rise.

Senator Lambie lashed out against her leader on Friday and threatened to split the party’s voting bloc in the Senate.

She said Mr Palmer heard her out but she learnt he would not be supporting her Remembrance Day campaign via a “radio interview”.

“You know what, it’s getting to the point I just don’t care what Clive Palmer’s position is on this at the moment – but if he had a conscience he’d stand right beside me and our troops and our veterans,” she told the ABC.

“Clive will have to decide whether he wants to see his party separated in the Senate, that’s all Clive Palmer needs to decide on.

“Clive Palmer can no longer sit on the fence, he’s either standing by me or he’s standing near the Liberal National Party but I’m not going to stand around and watch Clive Palmer back flipping.”

Mr Palmer could not be reached on Friday when contacted for comment.

Tensions between Mr Palmer and Senator Lambie have been played out in the public domain on several occasions since the Senator took her place in the Senate.

Sources told Fairfax Media in September that they overheard Mr Palmer bagging his senator as “not very bright” in a conversation with fellow PUP parliamentarian Dio Wang.

Mr Palmer has also distanced himself several times from Senator Lambie’s campaign to ban the burqa in Australia and her claim that Islamic Law “involves terrorism”.
