Han­son’s bid ‘ un­wel­come’

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

One Nation founder Pauline Han­son has launched her bid for a NSW up­per house seat in fa­mil­iar style, telling a Syd­ney ra­dio sta­tion that Mus­lims who won’t as­sim­i­late shouldn’t come to Aus­tralia. The state’s po­lit­i­cal lead­ers re­acted sharply to the news of her can­di­dacy yes­ter­day, say­ing the Queens­land­born con­ser­va­tive was not a wel­come ad­di­tion to pol­i­tics in NSW. Ms Han­son, who built a fol­low­ing in the 1990s by ques­tion­ing the value of mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism, is one of 16 in­de­pen­dents mak­ing a bid for an up­per house seat in the March 26 poll.
