Seeney's not a dinosaur ... he's warm and fuzzy, says Palmer

BILLIONAIRE Queensland businessman has denied that "Jeff", the huge mechanical Tyranosausus Rex that recently set up home at his Palmer Coolum Resort, was named after his political adversary, Queensland Government minister Jeff Seeney.

"It wouldn't be him," Mr Palmer said outside a high-profile business breakfast this morning.

"He's a nice guy. He's full of love and friendship and warm fuzzy feelings when you see him."

Mr Palmer, who is the biggest donor to the LNP, has his membership of the party in jeopardy after suggesting Mr Seeney was not fit to be a minister.

Mr Palmer is due to speak this morning to a sold-out breakfast organised by the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

He said he will also focus on the need for integrity among Queensland business leaders, and a preparedness to tackle conflicts of interest when they arise.

Mr Palmer also flagged plans for a vintage car museum at his resort, with some 150 vintage cars from around the world.
