Han­son is no racist: kids

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

Pauline Han­son PAULINE Han­son’s chil­dren have de­nied their mother is racist. The for­mer One Nation politi­cian an­nounced in early March that she was at­tempt­ing a po­lit­i­cal come­back, launch­ing a cam­paign to win an up­per house seat in the New South Wales elec­tion. Ms Han­son is stand­ing as an in­de­pen­dent in the March 26 poll. But she has faced stiff crit­i­cism from po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents, who ac­cuse her of har­bour­ing racist views. That’s not the case, her chil­dren have told Woman’s Day mag­a­zine. ‘‘ When I’m out, I’ll get the oc­ca­sional per­son who is deroga­tory and says: ‘ Oh, your mum is a racist’,’’ said Steven Han­son. ‘‘ But we know the truth.’’
