Queensland's Liberal National Party (LNP) executive says it will again consider revoking billionaire backer Clive Palmer's life membership at its regular meeting later this month.
Mr Palmer has repeated his call for both the Queensland Deputy Premier and Treasurer to be sacked.
He says Treasurer Tim Nicholls is misleading Queenslanders about the level of state debt to facilitate the sale of public assets.
"The books are being cooked by the biggest crooks ever to be elected to office in this state," Mr Palmer told a media conference in Brisbane this morning.
He says he is lodging a formal complaint about Mr Nicholls to the LNP executive, which will also be signed by party member Susie Douglas, the wife of Gold Coast MP Alex Douglas.
The billionaire businessman says he has been told a complaint has also been lodged by another LNP member seeking the expulsion of Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney on "serious and disturbing grounds".
Mr Palmer says he is not concerned about losing his LNP life membership.
He says Mr Seeney tried to bully him by calling for an audit of his coal projects, based on false allegations.
"We have an action in the Supreme Court of Queensland against the Deputy Premier," he said.
"He's stepped across the line of decency when he tried to use Government offices and officials to intimidate us, scare us and bully us.
"I'm not going to be intimidated by someone like Seeney in any way.
"I won't be backing down under any circumstances." A report by a cultural heritage group found Mr Palmer's company, Waratah Coal, ignored cultural heritage laws during the development of the Carmichael East project near Clermont, west of Rockhampton in central Queensland.
Mr Seeney has ordered his department to conduct a review of all of Mr Palmer's Queensland mining interests.
Outburst After his latest outburst, the LNP executive says it will discuss revoking Mr Palmer's life membership of the party at its regular meeting later this month.
In September, Mr Palmer promised to limit public comments after he repeatedly criticised Premier Campbell Newman over budget cuts.
At that time the LNP executive put Mr Palmer on notice, and a week later the mining magnate backed away from his remarks.
He said he would not quit the party and that he had enormous faith in the LNP to lead the state.
Mr Newman says he is standing by his ministers.
He says Mr Palmer will not be given special treatment in his business dealings in Queensland.
"Just because he has a special relationship with senior people in the LNP, he will not get special treatment or special favours," Mr Newman said.
"He will be treated fairly like every other Queensland individual or business."
