Clive Palmer swaps sick bag for seafood dinner

A JAPANESE eatery lunch on Monday, ill clutching a sick bag in Federal Court on Tuesday, followed by seafood at a top Gold Coast restaurant that night.

Embattled tycoon Clive Palmer returned to court in Brisbane yesterday again carrying a sick bag during the examination of Queensland Nickel's collapse with $300m in debts and 800 job losses.

Despite claims he suffers pancreatitis and memory loss due to painkillers - supported by testimony from his GP - a judge has declared him fit to give evidence.

The Gold Coast Bulletin can reveal his ailments didn't stop him heading to top eatery The Fish House in Burleigh on Tuesday night or going to Paradise Point Japanese restaurant Tetsu Aki for lunch on Monday.

At The Fish House with his wife, he ordered a dozen Sydney rock oysters and a Patagonian toothfish for the main, several witnesses said.
