After splitting from the Palmer United Party (PUP) in March, Senator Glenn Lazarus has decided to form his own party — the Glenn Lazarus Team.
But it’s not the formation of a new party that’s overly compelling. It’s the logo design that has people talking.
Here it is.
PLEASED to announce I am setting up the Glenn Lazarus Team. Paperwork with AEC. Website in progress! pic.twitter.com/bMa1yUyDt6

Lazarus is a former professional rugby league player and ex-State of Origin representative.
The footy references are already flying in on Twitter.
@BreakfastNews Re GLT logo, the yellow sends it in the Broncos direction. So maybe he's going to ignore the Titans and Cowboys fans

So is the Glenn Lazarus team always looking for more work hitup after hitup?

Meanwhile, his former party’s leader, Clive Palmer, had his own dig on Twitter, claiming Lazarus’ website is still decorated in the PUP’s primary colour.
Glenn Lazarus is a bit slow on the uptake, his website is still yellow #auspol

The PUP lost Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie in November last year, while Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party senator Ricky Muir’s loose alliance has faded. Palmer has been left with just one Senator in the form of WA Senator Dio Wang.
