A personal take on:
PAULINE HANSON’S ONE NATION
Revised March 2021
1VOTER OPINION : How many of you have read One Nations’ policies? I did and was very surprised; some of the policies are sensible, realistic, comprehensive and represent what most Australians generally think but are often afraid to voice. However, there are some important omissions to their list of policies and some highly questionable policies.
Unfortunately, Hansons' actions in Parliament have not lived up to the promise of her party policies. I question One Nation's Commitment to standing behind their policies and her most recent apparently self-serving, biased actions have completely lost me.
FAMILY LAW COURT – VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN – DISADVANTAGING WOMEN
Hanson was the deputy chair of the Joint Select Committee on Australia’s Family Law System . Senator Hanson has claimed mothers used false allegations of sexual abuse to deny their ex-partners custody, this allegation smacks of self-interest based on her son’s experience. He was accused of domestic violence in a family law hearing that apparently did not end well for him(2019).
PAULINE HANSON RECKONS SOME DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS ARE JUST MAKING IT UP – Sept 2019
This morning Hanson was a guest on ABC’s RN Breakfast, speaking about the recently announced federal inquiry into Australia’s family law system.
The One Nation leader had been pushing for this inquiry for a while, despite a review having just been conducted by the Australian Law Reform Commission and the results released in April.
The new review will be undertaken by a joint parliamentary committee over 12 months, with Hanson co-chairing.
1VOTER OPINION - Surely her participation on any level in this parliamentary inquiry is a conflict of interest and she did not allow facts supported by data to influence her recommendations.
HANSON ROLE ‘DISGUSTING’ & BIASED
Chris Bowen (The Australian) has slammed Pauline Hanson’s election as deputy chair of the family law inquiry.
IS THIS HANSON’S ‘SAINTED’ SON WHO WAS SO HARD-DONE BY?
HANSON'S SON FINED FOR ROLE IN $1.2M BROTHEL RING- July 2002
Pauline Hanson's son has pleaded guilty to working as a brothel driver while employed by Queensland's Corrective Services department. …….Zagorski, who was suspended from his job on 70 per cent pay pending the outcome of the hearing, faced one charge of knowingly participating in the provision of prostitution over a five month period from July last year.
He also faced four other charges of possessing tainted property including a mobile phone, a car and $130 he used in his job as driver for Brisbane brothel madam
1VOTER OPINION- The actions of an honest Aussie?:
WOMAN WHO PURCHASED PAULINE HANSON'S GOLD COAST UNIT FOR HER DISABLED SISTER TO LIVE IN SAYS THE ONE NATION LEADER'S SON HAS LEFT HER WITH A $550 LEGAL BILL – 2017
Wendy Carrafa purchased Pauline Hanson's Gold Coast home for $265,000
The apartment owned by Pauline and her son Adam Hanson had a caveat on it
Ms Carrafa was forced to pay $550 of legal fees to remove the caveat
She is now seeking that the Hansons pay her back for the legal bill
BACK TO PAULINE ……..
1VOTER COMMENT- This is the compassionate person the Government installed as a co-chair for their Family Law Court inquiry:
PAULINE HANSON SAYS ‘THESE THINGS HAPPEN’ AFTER DAD BURNS THREE KIDS AND WIFE TO DEATH – Feb 2020
Pauline Hanson has suggested killer dad Rowan Baxter may have been “driven to it” when he burned his three children and wife to death, adding “these things happen”.
Speaking on the Today show this morning, she called on Australians not to “bastardise all men” as a reaction to the despicable crime in Brisbane on Wednesday where Baxter killed his three children and wife by setting them on fire.
“Don’t bastardise all men out there, or women for that matter, because these things happen,” she said.
On domestic violence she said: “A lot of people are driven to this, to do these acts for one reason or another.”
1VOTERS OPINION – Unbelievable, no they are not! this woman shouldn’t be let anywhere near an inquiry that encompasses violence!
Amongst her claims, Hanson condemns the system on the basis that men are unfavourably looked upon and victims of family violence are disadvantaged in court proceedings by common practices. This includes the allowance for self-represented litigants (often the accused) to cross-examine their alleged victim.
What Hanson fails to comprehend is that women are often self-represented because they lack the finances, due to child rearing responsibilities, to afford proper representation; being a victim of violence and economically bullied is not their fault.
This inquiry has resulted in the abolition of the Family Law Court. For me this demonstrates a complete lack support for the victims of family violence, primarily women.

1VOTER COMMENT : HANSON – WHEN ‘INDEPENDENT’ IS A SHAM:
FACTCHECK: HAS PAULINE HANSON VOTED ‘EFFECTIVELY 100% OF THE TIME WITH THE TURNBULL GOVERNMENT’ IN 2018?
“This year [ 2018, Pauline Hanson] has voted effectively 100% of the time with the Turnbull government. Honestly you may as well vote LNP if you are voting One Nation because there is no difference.”
“Parliamentary records show the figure to be between 83-86%, depending on the measure used.
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party has cast 169 formal votes in the Senate to date in 2018. Of those, it was in agreement with the government 83% of the time.”
“There have been 187 divisions in the Senate so far this year (2018) . Of those, One Nation:
voted with the Coalition on 141 occasions (or 75% of the time)
voted against the Coalition on 28 occasions (or 15% of the time), and
abstained from voting on 18 occasions (or 10% of the time).
Of the 169 divisions where One Nation voted, it was in agreement with the government 83% of the time.”
PAULINE HANSON'S ONE NATION EMERGES AS GOVERNMENT'S MOST RELIABLE SENATE VOTING PARTNER
1VOTER OPINION- HANSON ROLE ‘DISGUSTING’

IDEOLOGY – From Wikipedia , Australian nationalism, Conservatism, Right-wing populism
Protectionism, Economic nationalism, Anti-immigration, Anti-Islam, Anti-multiculturalism
1VOTER OPINION- Given One Nations history of voting with the coalition I have to question their commitment to their policies as stated or for anything else that doesn't directly relate to Pauline

Immigration and the-Rule of Law
Remove Australia from the U.N. Refugee Convention Asylum seekers-
Asylum seekers, in general, should make an application for asylum in the first safe country they reach.
Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention. In 2017 it is reported that 14,093 individuals travelled to Indonesia from Afghanistan, Somalia, and Myanmar in the hope of getting to Christmas Island and obtain rights to asylum in Australia. These people await a change of government in the hope of travelling by boat to Australia.
Australia now has a population of 25 million people and there is clear evidence, in our major cities that we are unable to manage economically, socially or environmentally, with the rate of growth driven by immigration.

1VOTER OPINION- See my comments on Hanson’s involvement in the Family Law Court Inquiry and her various comments on family violence. I sincerely doubt that she is able to process factual data and act accordingly.
POLICIES I DON’T LIKE- firearms and gun control , energy , climate change, family law, policies
MAJOR ABSENT POLICIES- the threat from China, Law and order
QUESTIONABLE – I’m not so sure about One Nations Stance on these issues-
CLIMATE CHANGE – vague, denial
FIREARMS AND GUN CONTROL – Supports Responsible gun ownership? (Is there such a thing?)
ENERGY - Not so keen on the low emissions coal energy policy-what exactly is this?
Sorry Pauline, not good enough.
