Cheeky Clive fears anti-bikie laws will see him locked up

CLIVE Palmer's fears he'll be hauled away by police over the state's tough new anti-bikie laws.

The mining magnate has taken a jab at Queensland Premier Campbell Newman and Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie in a cheeky press release sent out to media this morning.

In a cheeky way to promote the opening of his auto museum next month, Mr Palmer said he's asked all motorcycles within the Palmer Motorama be arranged in groups of no more than three.

"I would hate for Mr Newman to suspect me of being a member or associate of an outlaw motorcycle gang," Mr Palmer said in the release.

"These heavy-handed and rushed-through laws are hard to get your head around but the last thing I want is to be prosecuted or thrown in jail by Mr Newman.

"Hopefully this move will take some heat off me."

The media release ended with details regarding the upcoming auto museum.

If you're really interested, it read:

"Opening in November, Palmer Motorama is set to house over 100 venerable vehicles from Mr Palmer's personal collection and will include a stunning selection of veteran, vintage and classic cars, each with their own special story to tell.

"As well as being open to visitors and resort guests to enjoy a journey into a bygone era, Palmer Motorama will be available for hire as a unique and atmospheric cocktail reception venue. With both indoor and outdoor settings and state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, Palmer Motorama will be ideal for presentations or product launches."

Classic Clive.
