The High Court has thrown out Clive Palmer’s challenge to Western Australia’s hard border closure and he’s been ordered to pick up the bill.

The mining magnate claimed the border closure was unconstitutional as it prevented free travel between states.

Constitutional Law expert Professor Anne Twomey joined Oliver Peterson to explain the High Court’s decision.
