The local paper run a weekly Clivewatch column, which should give you some idea about the instigator. Big, loud and wealthy. Personally I think it's the crassest idea I've ever heard, but that's Clive.

Careful Worrals....Clive will commence legal proceedings against you for comments like that! :}

We used to laugh at how the LNP, really stood for the Liberal Newman Palmer Party.....doubly funny to hear Clive on the radio last Month saying he actually knows how to read multi billion dollar balance sheets, and the state is not as bad as the eel claims :D:D

(Mrs Fliegs., refers to C Newman as the eel., she thinks he looks like one, he's certainly a slippery squirmy type in any case!! :yuk:

The news item this morning showed it to be a replica of the original - and I reckon that it looks like 100-year-old crap. The original was designed to move a lot of people from one side of the Atlantic to the other. A cruise ship is another animal completely. For a cruise I want balcony cabins, plenty of big glass, lots of pools and bars, none of that old heavy woodwork, and.....plenty of lifeboats.

It also said "no phones, no TV, no internet.." or this could be another Clive joke, tossed out there to see who would bite.

I like that. :ok:
I don't mind Clive; at least he's a bit different. I also laughed when he told everyone that his animatronic life sized dinosaur was called Jeff, but not after the deputy Premier. :E

Interesting point re modern cruise ships, Charlie. Very true!

I'd love to have a go at one of his two '9ers' that were long time parked down at Cooly!

"Palmer isn’t displaying the hubris associated with the launch of the first Titanic. Asked if the ship was “sinkable”, Palmer responded it certainly was. “Anything will sink if you put a hole in it,” he said.

At least passengers don’t have to be scared of icebergs. “One of the benefits of global warming is there’s not as many icebergs in the North Atlantic,” Palmer said.''

He is so sure about global warming is he?

"Forecast is for more snow in polar regions, less for the rest of us (Journal of Climate) Posted on February 22, 2013"

More snow means more icebergs............ :rolleyes:

I thought warming meant bigger icebergs - or at least, more big bits breaking away.

If Old man Palmer spent more time with the other Mrs. Palmer, we wouldn't even have this thread!

" It will have many more lifeboats".

How nice to see that for once "lessons HAVE been learned!!"

I vote Drapes as the future ship's capt'n. I love the smell of a keel-haulin'
in the morning! And on a boat that size that's some pretty serious shit.

They're only doing it to have another crack at that iceberg.

Lets hope that bloody woman falls off the bow this time and de Caprio jumps in after her. Preferably early on in the film :*

Pretty small compared to the modern cruise liners. 49000 tons for the original (IIRC) as opposed to the 200000 ton monsters today. Going to be an uncomfortable trip for those booked.

I wonder if they'll have to give away tickets for the maiden voyage ?

Aw, c'mon, TTN. Do that and you'd miss the wet nightie scene.

Yay. I thought I was the only viewer who had that reaction. Add Celine Dion to the drink and you've got a good movie.
