Just forget Hanson, she’s only in it for herself
THE state election is upon us and once more Pauline Hanson is endeavouring to influence voting patterns in Queensland.
As a victim of a similar situation in the 1998 election when voters thought they were voting for her and not One Nation’s local candidate, I urge them to this time understand that she offers nothing as a candidate either herself or her representatives.
The only candidates who can determine the future of Queensland and our local representatives are those from the major parties.
Ms Hanson claims to represent the battlers whereas history shows the only battler she represents is herself as whenever she runs short of funds she nominates for an election to receive public funding.
In the 1998 election the One Nation candidate attended no local forums or announced any policies, yet got elected as the recipient of major party preferences.
I, therefore, urge voters this time to consider seriously how they place their preferences and understand that One Nation offers nothing to Queensland. KEN McELLIGOTT,
