Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party is printing election corflutes in China, according to images posted to Twitter, despite his electioneering on a manufacture in Australia policy.
The photos show a UAP sign marked as being printed by Dongguan Jianxin Plastic Products, a company based in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China.
The party is campaigning on bringing jobs back to Australia, with Palmer’s “Vision for Australia” document saying the country needs “a real manufacturing industry in areas where we have the economic advantage, rather than exporting jobs to China and Japan”.
“The Australian Government must support Australian industries and ensure all policies put Australia first,” he wrote.
Printing Industries slammed the UAP in response to the news.
