Media Musings Blog Archive Billionaire Everyone hates a billionaire they don know and love a billionaire they do know.

Clive Palmer pledged $100 million from his company to establish a new foundation for medical research in WA and for support of indigenous communities in the Pilbara. In 2010, Clive burberry luggage outlet Palmer spent $10 million on his employees Christmas bonuses. Gifts included a fleet of 77 Mercedes Benz and more than 700 overseas holidays.
