Things aren’t going so well for Clive Palmer lately and there’s no break for the businessman come politician according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The bookie is making it a near certainty that Palmer will lose his federal seat of Fairfax at the next election, offering odds of $1.10 he will and $6.00 he won’t.
His party would appear safe though, Sportsbet offering odds of $1.20 that the PUP will be represented at the next election and $4.00 they will be deregistered by 2017.
But the days of Palmer’s place on the Forbes Australia Rich List look numbered, with $7.00 on offer that he will make the 2016 list.
“Clive certainly has enjoyed the high life these past few years but by the looks of the odds he will have more time to focus on his business life soon as his political days look all but over,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
