CONTROVERSIAL Boonah State MP Aidan McLindon has merged his own Queensland Party with political maverick Bob Katter’s Australian Party.

Mr McLindon said some in his party were disappointed with the merger and he realised some described Mr Katter as "a cut snake".

But Mr McLindon said he was immensely proud to be working with Mr Katter under the Australian Party banner.

"Cut snakes last for 39 minutes," Mr McLindon said.
"This good man’s lasted for 39 years so he must be doing something right.

"He speaks from the heart and he gets it right nearly all of the time."

The pair said it made sense for the parties to team up against Labor and the Liberal National Party.
