Palmer: govt 'cooked the books'

4BC Mornings: Mining magnate Clive Palmer says Queensland's government has cooked the books so it can pursue a sell off of public assets.

The Liberal National Party (LNP) life member and donor - who's again at risk of being expelled from the party - has reopened a new battlefront in his war with the state government.

He's demanding the sackings of Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney and Treasurer Tim Nicholls, saying neither is fit to hold office.

Mr Nicholls had fed Queenslanders "lies" about the size of the state's debt to justify asset sales, Mr Palmer told reporters.

Mr Seeney was a "lucerne farmer" and a bully who was trying to intimidate him over a coal project, he said.

"These books have been cooked by the biggest crooks that have ever occupied office in the state of Queensland," Mr Palmer said on Friday.

    SO you say that if Clive Palmer cooks the books then it is OK for the Qld Government to do it?
    Don't think so, the Government's money has been raised from my pockets and it is definitely not OK for them to sack staff and reduce services based on an incorrect assessment of the State's finances.
