Sprinklers randomly turn on, gloriously ruin Clive Palmer’s press conference
Welcome back Clive Palmer!
The notorious former member for Fairfax has returned to the scene, announcing that Brian Burston, the senator who just a week prior left One Nation, will be joining his United Australia Party.
In an at times bizarre press conference, Burston declared he had decided to join forces with Palmer’s party “around 10:30 this morning” – despite announcing he would become an independent shortly before while in the Senate.
However, that had nothing on how the press conference finished, with Palmer’s announcement outside Parliament House coming to an all too abrupt end after sprinklers suddenly turned on.
And really, perhaps it was for the best.
