Clive Palmer is a controversial Queenslander who plans to build a replica of the Titanic and call it, unsurprisingly, Titanic II.
If anyone else started going on about this on the bus people would edge uncomfortably away from him and get off at the next stop. Clive Palmer, however, is a billionaire mining magnate so there is no reason to think that it wont happen. Apart from the whole rebuilding a doomed ship thing of course, it could be a good idea….
Please tell me that as a treat he is taking the entirety of parliament with him on her maiden voyage. The treat there is for us when it all goes horribly wrong. (Maybe he could get the captain of the Costa Concordia to have a go at the steering.)
