Jacqui Lambie Installs Savage New Artwork In Her Office That Rinses Clive Palmer

Jacqui Lambie is no stranger to saying it how it is and she's just revealed exactly how she feels about Clive Palmer.

The Senator once worked for the Palmer United Party when she got her start in politics and quickly became popular for her outspoken views and grassroots campaigns to help Tasmanians and soldiers.

She eventually hightailed it out of there and started her own party, the Jacqui Lambie Network, with herself as leader.

To honour the way she apparently still feels about her former boss, the independent Senator has decided to put up an artwork in her office.

The painting depicts billionaire businessman-turned-politician as Jabba the Hut from Star Wars and herself as Princess Leila.

In the movies, the princess was kept as Jabba's slave until Luke Skywalker rescues her. But in Lambie's office, Leila rides the hell out of the large space monster and doesn't hold back.

The painting was donated by fans Ray and Elain, who picked it up off artist Lindsay Spears. Spears entered the artwork in the Bald Archy Prize six years ago, which is a parody competition of the Archibald portrait prize.

Ms Lambie reckons the painting is absolutely fantastic, telling Fairfax: "I think it's brilliant. Ray and Elain really made my week by gifting it to me, it's an absolute treat. I'm hanging it in the office. I tell you what - you won't see anyone else in Australia with control over Clive Palmer like that!"

But after being posted on social media, people weren't as excited as Jacqui.

One person wrote: "Not sure if this is the worst or best thing ever but it's definitely one of the two."

Another added: "Google, how I delete someone else's tweet?"

A third said: "Don't know much about art but do know what I like. I don't like this."

It was back in 2014 when the professional relationship between Clive Palmer and Jacqui Lambie deteriorated.

The outspoken former soldier said she would vote against all government legislation unless they were able to guarantee a pay deal for the Australian Defence Force (ADF). She wanted people within Defence to get paid more and in her eyes Canberra was dragging its feet.

The relationship became so bitter that Palmer even accused Lambie of being a plant within the party by someone powerful and told to 'act irrationally' within the party.
