Clive Palmer: what’s mine is mine and what yours is mine also

I’m not certain that I got it right about I think that I heard Clive Palmer described his legal stouch with Chinese coal giant CITIC as being about “getting the Chinese to pay for our minerals.”

Now hold on, shouldn’t that be “getting the Chinese to pay me for our minerals.”

Or more accurately, if Clive was addressing the Australian people, as he is wont to do, it should have been “getting the Chinese to me for your minerals.”

But then perhaps I’ve simply got Clive’s motivation for being in Parliament completely wrong.
