CLIVE Palmer is courting the youth vote in Australia after already winning the endorsement of Sydney radio DJs Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O for doing a twerk.

He also popped into national radio station Triple J and made an appearance on ABC TV show The Hamster Wheel, where he delivered impersonations of Bob Katter, Kevin Rudd, Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard, before appealing for the vote of hamsters across the nation.

In a a none-too-subtle attack on Kevin Rudd, he accused him of being more concerned about his hair flick than the people of Australia.

In his 2Day FM hosts appearance, Mr Palmer declared Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Opposition leader Tony Abbott were 'boring'.

Mr Palmer was challenged to do a dance move called the twerk, which involved grinding down low and shaking his ample booty.

The billionaire had not heard of the move but after an impromptu demonstration by Sandilands, he was more than happy to give it a go.

Sandilands and Jackie O were more than impressed, saying he had just won the youth vote and their endorsement.

Mr Palmer, who is flying the country in his $70 million jet to get his message out, said every Australian PM should be able to twerk.

He joked that his wife Anna might even want to check his twerk style when he was back home.

Mr Palmer's Palmer United Party has 150 candidates across Australia.

He has announced plans to cut tax by 15%, increase pensions and disability pensions by 150 a fortnight, cut the Fringe Benefit Tax and stimulate the economy  through a $70 billion injection.
