Just for­get Hanson, she’s only in it for her­self

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

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,

Townsville.

SELF- IN­TER­EST: Pauline Hanson.
