A WOR­RY­ING TURN

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Co­conut is con­cerned for the health of some­time-lo­cal Clive Palmer. Only re­cently he was pho­tographed mas­sively slimmed down, prac­ti­cally svelte, and he opined that he was in won­der­ful health, which co­conut was glad to hear. But then in last week’s court ap­pear­ance he was in such a state of poor health he needed to carry a vomit bag and pil­low. Worse, his men­tal con­fu­sion, par­tic­u­larly mem­ory, was such that, for ex­am­ple, “I can’t even re­mem­ber my Amex PIN”. Co­conut for­gets his own PIN all the time and knows full well the dis­tress that this brings. His predica­ment how­ever seemed to meet lit­tle sym­pa­thy from the bench, in fact none. Co­conut does won­der if all this is be­cause the big fella is try­ing to go cold tur­key on the Tim Tams.
