Clive Palmer seeking to “permanently restrain” Premier Mark McGowan from making commentary about him again.

The billionaire’s lawyers this morning released documents revealing incidences when Mark McGowan brought Palmer into “hatred, ridicule and contempt”.

Palmer’s legal team today revealed six times the mining mogul was allegedly “defamed” by the WA Premier.

Five of these referred to things Mr McGowan said in press conferences, where he called Palmer “the enemy of Western Australian” and “very, very selfish”.

He also said WA was “in a war with Clive Palmer”.

Palmer’s lawyers said Mr McGowan portrayed the Queenslander as a “traitor” who sought to “inflict harm on the health and wellbeing of the people of Western Australia for his own selfish gain”.

The billionaire also took issue with a post by Mr McGowan last month that said one of Palmer’s lawsuits could steal “$12,000 from every man, woman and child in Western Australia”, which his lawyers say was defamatory.

While there was no figure attached to the documents, Mr Palmer said he was seeking compensation “damages, including aggravated damages” from Mark McGowan, while seeking an order to “permanently restrain” the Premier from making such commentary again.
