Palmer to set sale – again!

1. May 2012,

Australian minerals billionaire, Clive Palmer has announced plans to rebuild the ill-fated transatlantic liner, Titanic – and also to contest the parliamentary seat held by Wayne Swan, the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia.

Palmer – whose wealth is estimated at between 3 and 6 billion dollars – intends to run as a candidate for Australia’s conservative Queensland’s Liberal National Party (LNP).

If (or when) “Titanic II” actually gets into the water, the Chinese navy (sic) has apparently been invited to accompany it on the “maiden voyage” from England to New York [ 30 April 2012].

Perhaps Mr Palmer hadn’t noticed, but Titanic Mark Two has already been launched.

Last month a re-constructed (modernised and securitised) replica of the original vessel set sail from Southampton docks, on the hundredth anniversary of the original launch.
