The Palmer United candidate for Mitchell, Murray Schultz, said he feels all is lost.
He said the current Labor government lacks any vision for Australia’s future and no hope can be found in the policies of the opposition.
Mr Schultz said cutting-edge technology on sustainable energy was being ignored by both parties as a potential solution to energy problems and an economic stimulant.
“In National Science Week we are encouraged to get passionate about evolving technologies and new sciences," Mr Schultz said.
"During the heights of the Global Financial Crisis, European countries took hard decisions by joining forces to create new methods of securing our long-term future with sustainable energy that is environmentally responsible for centuries to come.
“The European project is called ITER – at iter.org – which deals with re-creating energy the same way the sun produces its energy using fusion. The science is truly amazing and needs deep investment by frontier-style political parties.
“What we have is Kevin Rudd who spent $7 billion more than the ITER rollout on a stimulus payment to our population which resulted in many of us buying LCD TVs from China.
“We believe both Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott are one of the same.
"Throw them both out and let’s get on with making this country great with visionary thinkers and leaders that get the job done.
“The time has come to bring about change and a vote for the Palmer United Party will do exactly that.
"I’m proud to be running for the seat of Mitchell 'Running for the Hills'."
