Palmer’s candidate silent on anti-vax posts Brodie Cowburn UNITED Australia Party’s Dunkley candidate Ronald Jean has stayed silent when asked about posts he shared on Facebook questioning the safety of chemotherapy and vaccinations.

On 15 May 2018, the candidate for Clive Palmer’s party shared a number of posts to social media. One was a picture with the words “CHEMO KILLS MORE PEOPLE” next to an IV bag with a skull on it. Another was a photoshopped image of Microsoft founder Bill Gates holding a syringe with a skull on it, standing next to a group of children. A third


post from that day was a picture with the statement “vaccines have never been studied for safety, is it really worth the risk?” Mr Jean asked that all political questions be sent through by email when contacted by The Times. Questions sent to Mr Jean by The Times went unanswered by publication deadline.

The United Australia Party were asked if Mr Jean’s posts on chemotherapy and vaccinations are in line with the views of the party. Those questions were also not answered before publication deadline. Mr Jean’s Facebook page has been made private over the course of the campaign. Mr Jean’s profile on the UAP web-

site states that he “runs his own naturopathic clinic as well as a chemical manufacturing company.” The United Australia Party candidate is currently being preferenced second on the how to vote cards of Liberal MP Chris Crewther. Mr Crewther distanced himself from Mr Jean’s posts. Continued Page 5
