Vacant One Nation senate position could go to the top of the party

Queensland State election to be held on November 25

by Gil Hanrahan in Brisbane

Rumblings from One Nation members have confirmed there is an unhatched master plan in place to elevate Pauline Hanson’s Chief of Staff James Ashby to the senate.

In its usual response the High Court sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns has ordered a recount for the next candidate on the party ticket to replace the ousted Malcolm Roberts, a most competent senator.

Roberts now will stand in the state seat of Ipswich as a part of the plan, to take over the state leadership should sitting One Nation member Steve Dickson(another competent Member) lose his seat of Buderim at the November 25 poll.

In the current episode of sloppy administration by One Nation, the next in line is Fraser Anning, a Gladstone business man.

Sources have revealed that Anning, believed to be close to bankruptcy, suddenly had his creditors paid off allowing him to sit in the senate.

Has One Nation senate candidate Fraser Anning been asked to stand aside for James Ashby?

It seems the deal is for Anning to step aside and create a casual vacancy which would allow Pauline Hanson to insert Ashby into the senate.

There is a similar precedent to this scenario going back to the famous  case when a hostile Labor Party member,Albert Patrick Field(Pat)  was appointed to the senate after union organiser, Senator Bertie Milliner died suddenly. This extract from Wikipedia explains how One Nation could appoint Ashby:

“On 30 June 1975, Bertie Milliner, a Queensland ALP Senator, died suddenly. It had long been a tradition that when a casual vacancy occurred in the Senate, the relevant political party would nominate the replacement to the state premier, and the state parliament would formally appoint the new senator. As was usual practice, the Labor Party nominated only one name, Mal Colston, to replace Milliner. Country Party Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen asked for a list of three names from which he would choose the replacement; he was possibly relying on a 1962 precedent, when his predecessor, Frank Nicklin, had also required such a list of names. The Labor Party refused to provide a list and insisted on Colston being appointed.

Token Labor member Pat Field was nominated by Joh Bjelke Petersen in 1975 as a replacement for Bertie Milliner after his sudden death

Although Field had long Labor Party and union connections, he was certainly not an active politician and had never before sought to become one. Nevertheless, he made himself known to the Premier’s office and offered his services.[1]

Although he would be technically a Labor Senator, he vowed never to vote for the Whitlam government. Field was conservative and religious and was openly critical of what he saw as a range of “immoral” policies being advanced by Whitlam and his government. That was exactly the sort of person wanted by Bjelke-Petersen, who responded by nominating Field in the Parliament of Queensland as the new senator.”

To the public, One Nation it appears, can do no wrong. Their savage internal politics have seen numerous candidates kicked out because they would not pay Ashby’s Sunshine Coast printing business for election material believing they could buy it cheaper elsewhere. Others have been kicked out for not adhering to Hanson’s ‘it’s my way or the highway’ policy.

This writer does not believe the  platitudes coming from the mouth of Liberal leader Tim Nicholls stating he will not do a deal with Hanson to form government. He would do a deal with the devil to grab a hold of the Treasury spoils.

So would Hanson and Ashby, both traditional Liberals with close ties to both the state and federal Liberal parties.

At a Canberra function soon after last year’s federal election, according to a bystander, Hanson’s first comments to Malcolm Turnbull were,” how can I help you Malcolm?” (Cairns News has contacted a bystander and Hanson’s comments were confirmed).

  1. I am totally dismayed at the antics of the Government…meaning the ADANI FIASCO!!
    A government which recognises a ..SCAM…is what we need to defend the Tax Payers
    PURSE Corruption and Collusion…….
    AN HONEST GOVERNMENT !!

  2. I can’t believe Pauline would be so stupid as to put James Ashby into the Senate.If she does, she will lose votes…he is a man of ill repute…he has a ‘history’. I know I wouldn’t vote for him.I wondered what his agenda was…now I know!

  3. Although some would have Pauline on a pedestal, fit for worship as a goddess, she is just another bloody politician.
