Cairnsnews could be forgiven for missing something here. We got a media release claiming One Nation senators Pauline Hanson and Malcolm Roberts would be opposing all government bills in the senate unless the vaccine mandates were stopped.
Pauline’s own bill to halt mandates was defeated yesterday in the senate by the duopoly LNP and Labor (naturally) and some of the token independents such as mad woman Jacquie Lambie..
Today there is an article by the ABC that Hanson and Roberts sided with the LNP Government voting down the establishment of an Integrity Commission for federal politicians.
This blatant hypocrisy enhances the perception of many people that Pauline remains a true Liberal. Good luck Clive.
What more can we say?
Comment from James Ashby, Pauline Hanson’s Chief of Staff:
One Nation have committed to vote against all Government legislation until the Prime Minister removes the states ability to mandate COVID vaccines. While One Nation support the merits of a National ICAC, the Bill that went before the Senate today did not meet the requirements set by both One Nation Senators, and therefore they voted against it. If the Liberals voted the same way – that’s their choice. Neither One Nation Senator voted for the Government.
