Pauline Hanson

Pauline Hanson is one of Australia’s most well known politicians. Her reputation and recognition extends outside of Australia and reaches across the globe.

Pauline-HansonPauline’s political career began in 1994, and her involvement in Australian politics continues today. Pauline Hanson is currently standing as an independent candidate for the March 2011 New South Wales Legislative Council election.

Pauline’s political career has seen her represent herself under two different political parties, both of which she created, as well as acting as a Liberal Party member and an independent candidate.

During the last two decades, Pauline Hanson’s ability to ask the difficult questions has helped her to gain fame and popularity with the Australian community. At the same time, her views have been branded as controversial and even racist.

Pauline Hanson is not the average politician, always aiming to look squeaky clean and blame free. Instead, Pauline accepts that there are issues that Australia inevitably must address, whether it’s now or in the near future. Many consider Pauline Hanson to be an outspoken soul that is simply ahead of her time.

Comments that Lead to Controversy

Pauline Hanson first came to the attention of many Australians following a comment she made to ‘The Queensland Times’ during her election campaign in March 1996. At the time, Pauline Hanson was registered in the election as a Liberal Party candidate.

Pauline’s controversial comments centred on the debate of whether or not Aboriginals were receiving support and benefits, supplied by the state, that other Australians would not be entitled to.

The media pounced on this comment, and despite the initial uproar, Pauline Hanson won the election. However, she took the seat as an independent candidate, rather than a Liberal party member.

Pauline Hanson had clearly gained fans and foes during her election, and her comment had proved a serious political debate. Pauline’s maiden speech to the House of Representatives in September 1996 fired the debate further.

The Famous House of Representatives Speech

Pauline Hanson’s maiden speech at the House of Representatives has become the topic of much discussion. Even after more than ten years on, everyone, from the political academics to the Australian people, talks about that one speech.

From the start, Pauline Hanson made it perfectly clear that she was unlike other politicians; instead, she felt she better identified with the wants and needs of the people, as opposed to the greed and means of the politician.

Her opening lines saw her stating that her views were based on ‘commonsense’ and her experience as ‘a mother, a sole parent and a businesswoman running a fish and chip shop’.

Quick to acknowledge that her comments to the newspaper had created controversy, she countered with the argument that despite this comment, she had managed to win support and, most importantly, the seat at the election. Pauline Hanson also surprised all, by revealing that she considered that the pursuit of multiculturalism and political correctness would lead to a case of reverse racism.

Pauline Hanson also addressed the growing concern of the number of immigrants coming into Australia, and the government’s inability to listen to the people on this particular subject. Pauline eloquently out forward her argument with one simple sentence:

“…if I can invite whom I want into my home, then I should have the right to have a say in who comes into my country.” Pauline Hanson (House of Representatives speech, September 1996)

Pauline Hanson’s speech also looked into a number of other issues concerning Australians, including youth unemployment, child benefit, family breakdown and the Family Law Act. She expressed concerns about global debt and the current economic system, and called instead for lower import figures and the return of trade limits and tariffs.

The Rough Road of Politics

“It’s been a very rocky road. I have had all the major political parties attack me, been kicked out of my own party and ended up in prison, but I don’t give up” – Pauline Hanson (Federal elections, May 2007)

Between the speech at the House of Representatives and the here and now, Pauline Hanson has walked a rough road, and endured a turbulent political career.

The speech caused quite the stir with Australian citizens, each individual developing their own opinion of Pauline. The political parties took a more dramatic response, doing their best to separate themselves from Pauline’s views, but not strongly enough to validate censoring her thoughts entirely.

After launching her first political Party, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, she enjoyed initial success and support. However, a number of factors led to the reduction of support for the party from Australian citizens.

Pauline Hanson left One Nation, only to walk into an electoral fraud investigation. Pauline and another One Nation party leader were sentenced to a total of 9 years imprisonment each in August 2003; however, after less than three months served, both Pauline Hanson and her political partner were released, with all of the charges quashed.

Rather than leaving politics alone, Pauline Hanson once again embraced the route to a political career less than 12 months after her release from prison. Pauline did not win that particular election in 2004, however, she did win more votes than her old rival party, One Nation.

Recent Political Engagements

Pauline also ran as a candidate for the 2007 Federal elections under her second, more recent political party banner; Pauline’s United Australia Party. Again, Pauline was just shy of securing her seat, and she managed to win a strong percentage of the votes submitted by Australian citizens. The ongoing support of the Australian people has constantly pushed Pauline to assess and improve her policies and to continue pursuing a career in politics.

In 2009, she decided to drop the new party name, and again run as an independent. Pauline felt that as an independent, she could best represent both herself and the needs and wants of the people, without party politics becoming an interference.

Although Pauline Hanson spoke of selling her home and moving to England in 2010, she has since decided to run as an independent candidate for a seat on the New South Wales Legislative Council in the March 2011 election.

    We have far too many workers from other countries here preventing aussies from getting employment.
    I’m 56 yrs old and was made redundant last June 2014, it is hard to find work at this age group employers keep wanting to employ younger persons and while I agree youth also need to work so do I. Stand up for all Australian born Aussies keep us employed first

    • Ian Marshall says

      I have reported that foreign employers, ie restaurants etc are paying workers ten dollars per hour. I have reported this to the appropriate athourities, but nothing is done. I am convinced that the government want a lower wage in Australia.

      • Ian Marshal says

        The fact is that it is ludicrous in the extreme for anyone to get 4.8 million for this job. The head of US post gets, I think, 600000. Why is this so.

  2. Geoff says

    Hi Pauline,
    I voted for you many years ago and I hope you make it back to politics, as almost everything you said then has come true.
    I used to be a one eyed Liberal voter but since Tony. Abbott got you jailed for illegal reasons, and I am so upset that you had to spend one day in jail.
    The Liberals were so scared of you as they knew what you were saying, people really agreed with, like myself.
    Please keep going, we need people like you, who call it as it really is.
    kindest regards
    Geoff

  3. Robert says

    Well done Pauline
    Believe me Pauline your opinion is valued you speak and think what many Australians think and would like to say.
    Regards
    Robert

    I see her views as being the right choices for Australia. I think Pauline is real and not a fake. I hope to see more opportunities for the Australian people and not our visitors . We need to support our own families and take care of our own. Pauline is RIGHT no more foreigners.

  5. Cactus of the Shady kind says

    As a 15 year old, I am one of the few of my generation who understand the issue of liberty for all; A lack of saftey for anyone. In my opinion, we need a real Australia First political party, who put our country’s wellbeing and economy before everyone elses, to rival the anarchists and communists. We need the National Party back.

  6. Graham Bond says

    It makes no sense. Muslims are unhappy in Gaza, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria and Lebanon.
    Muslims are HAPPY in Australia, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, USA, Norway, Holland and Denmark.
    Basically, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim and unhappy in every country that is!
    AND WHO DO THEY BLAME? Not Islam, not their leadership, not themselves, THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN AND THEN – They want to change those countries to be like, THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

  7. Casie says

    Well done Pauline,

    You came across as sensible and more articulate in expressing the vary valid points.

    I have lived all over the world and enjoy different cultures, but people in Australia aren not understanding what culture means. Certain obscure ideas that are clearly not of sense and reason is not a culture !. Religious ideas that do not follow reasonable values is very dangerous. Islam and all of Islam has deep seated obscure ideas and devaluates woman on all its levels.

    I have many Muslim friends, and ones that proclaim not to be radicalised, and I can vouche as a person who has done psychology that these friends have very serious issues about themselves, their value as a woman, their views on nature which sees that animals are grossly inferior to humans, and so on.

    We are ruining Australia, and accepting cultures dictate over our heritage. We must incorporate the Aboriginal culture more as it is one based on the land and respecting the land/nature. Every school if it is Jewish, Muslim, Christian etc should be taught at every school for the purpose of telling these culture that they can not be closed and enforce their way on Australian land which is understood none other better that the Aborigines. Also Bring back more of the English culture, as for centuries Great British culture is of sophistication, and based on highly acute intellect.

  8. Danielle says

    Pauline seeing you speak out and stand up for this country makes you a hero in my books … You have more supporters out there than you realize and this country needs you . Why the hell Arnt there more of you out there ? I’ve had enough of religious beliefs taking over our rights in this country. I’m not religious , I’m a gay hard working Aussie that just wants to live in peace . Thankyou thankyou thankyou for being who you are and never stop believing your making a good difference in our country x

  9. Diane Williams says

    The past governments have a lot to answer for, they’ve encouraged the young to stay on the dole and have paid them have children, who in turn have themselves become ‘dole bludgers’ who refuse to work because they don’t have to. Why aren’t they forced to ‘work for the dole’ after 6 months, there’s plenty of work out there but they simply don’t want to do it, so immigrants or backpackers seem to be the only one’s willing to do a lot of the work it seems.

    The age for drinking should be put up to 21. Those who drop out of school should be put in the Army etc., the age of giving handouts has to stop and they need to learn respect and responsibility.

    Everyone knows it’s part of the Muslim culture to make any society they infiltrate conform to their beliefs, why is our government allowing it to happen? Our children aren’t allowed to celebrate Easter or Christmas in their schools, sing their favourite nursery rhymes and it’s becoming apparent already that they have more rights than we do, it has to stop! The Muslim leaders remain silent against the threat of terrorism, why? They should have never been allowed in our country and they all need to go, their beliefs have no place in our culture, they have no place anywhere except where they came from.

    Thankyou Pauline for standing up for what the majority of Australians believe in and are too afraid to say, the time for the Labor and Liberal Party is over and we need a real leader and real people in government before it’s too late. It’s already too late for people in the UK any many parts of Europe, we need to take action now!

  10. Aunt M says

    Totally agree Karen.
    It seems we have many youth unemployed and many single young females having babies early because of many reasons, but it is an easier option now they are paid for it!
    Why not encourage married mothers as I did to stay at home for the first few years, the most important and crucial time of their child’s life and enjoy the “nanny” job themselves. I am glad I stayed at home as my mother did ( I just had to do without because my children came first) I was wondering one day if I had done the right thing with all the pressure to be a super working mom when my child came home one day and said ” Mum I am so glad you are home”. They had been to a friends house who’s married mother works full time and always has (of which there are quite a few) and she is home alone after school in a mess of a house.
    Everyone’s situation is different I know but everyone wants more than they actually need now. How about making housing an affordable reality for everyone?
    The nation has a serious lack of volunteers also. Staying at home also means the volunteers will be back on board now they are not working and a reduction in child care needed. With all the mothers working it makes it harder for everyone including them. I have been doing volunteer projects in my community for over 10 years now and cannot find younger replacements or any who are not working!
    I am excited about the possibilities of what I can do when the children leave home. I will be in my 50’s with much to contribute but as you have found there is discrimination. This I find crazy considering we will not be having more children and therefore the employers will not have to find replacements or give handouts for the natural course of parenthood. Many small business have been penalised by this system and have had to close down, leaving more unemployment.
    Outsourcing everything seems to be the easy cop out for our government with everything these days. I am sure there are answers here and the unions have a lot to do with many of the issues by putting in their unrealistic demands.

  11. Ian Marshall says

    There is no doubt that Muslim killers are amongst us here in Australia, further it is my opinion that general food Halal certification,is unnecessary, is a world wide conspiracy to collect money to further the Muslim ambition to Islamify the whole world..
    May I suggest you read Crucified Again by Raymond Ibrahim.

  12. JohnOh says

    WE have the pussy footed politicians making decisions that no man with ethics would make because of hurting the poorer class. Since when has the “Labor” party been against its workers? I’ll tell you why: Its because the immigration policy provides the support and the money for the new members when ethical people quit the party after realising they have been scammed and used by the “Labor” party and unions. Make no mistake. They are the same type of fascist Germany had pre ww2. Islam is a giant mistake and the Bolt report tells you why today, Sunday April 5 2015

  13. Nathan says

    Go Pauline!!!! You are the only person who is on the right track. The sooner all these do gooden politically correct idiots wake up and start listening to you the sooner we can start tacking our country back. Our grandfathers, great grandfathers, great great grandfathers would be disgusted in what is happening in this country today. They went to war to fight for our freedom that we are meant to have today. All the Muslims living in Australia need adopt and live by our Australian values. If they don’t want to then they should leave!!! All the radicalized Muslims who want to go and fight let them go!! Let them go and don’t let them back in….Simple!!! By taking away their passports and not allowing them to leave is just creating more risk of an attack on our soil. I can’t see this county turning around until Pauline is running it and standing up for us Aussies and what we believe in!!!

  14. Christine Jamieson says

    Hi Pauline,

    Just wanted to thank you for supporting the rally and saying it like it is.
    Totally agree with everything that was said.

    A big thank you for sticking up for us.

    Christine

  15. Allan Bolton says

    Hi Pauline,

    Why are you so focussed on Muslims when the police are dealing with the radical moslems and Australia’s greatest enemy are the chinese.

    The chinese are very dangerous because they do not integrate when they migrate, they colonise a country and take it over economically.

    Look at what is happening to our real estate prices where chinese are buying up Australia with the help of real estate agents both local and abroad.

    The average Ozzie does not stand a chance to buy property against the chinese bidders who are very cashed up.

    Look at our neighbours being Singapore and Malaysia as the chinese control these countries economically.

    Simultaneously the chinese are invading many other countries and what is a concern, the chinese government claim 90% of the South China Sea to the anger of mainly Japan, Philippines and Vietnam.

    When are you going to see China and the chinese as a threat to both Australia and the World.

    Another concern is the lack of reporting about chinese in Australian media.

    Regards Worried Person

    • Ian Marshall says

      The problem is that the police are not dealing with it, at a cost of about$500 million of tax payers money. per annum. Might I also point out that the Chinese have been here since the 18 hundreds, and have assimilated to a large degree, contribute to our economy, and lastly, they are not runing around trying to change our society, and kil lus. The money that is pouring into the Australian housing market, in many cases comes from corruption.
      I would suggest you read the Quran, which amongst other things, forbids Muslims to mix with non Muslims, etc etc..Also read Crucified Again by Raymond Irahim.

        • Ian Marshall says

          I have read the Quran Abdul, plus Crucified Again. Don’t be rude Abdul, your type seem only able to denegrate someone. You don’t know me and thank goodness never will. The Quran states that Muslims are not to make friend with non Muslims, as the non Muslims will try to onvert you. Abul non muslims don’t giv a fig whther one is Muslim or non Muslim, for your edificationwe are sick of the threats and killings comitted by Muslims. Got It Abdul.

        • Ian Marshall says

          By the way Abdul, whilst my spelling is not impeccable, my old computer key board, sometimes prints when I hit the key, and often does not. My proof reading is at fault. Just tell me Abdul just who is doing all the atrocities world wide? Or are all the news reports some conspiracy against Islam.. .

  16. michelle cheeseman says

    Re hello Pauline we really need some one we can truly trust to run our country probably and stop letting Muslim and all sorts of people into our country as our town hospital is getting run by other nation instead of our own hospital staff

      • Ian Marshall says

        Here you are again Abdul , I can recognize you, as your comments don’t address the issuie, but are designed to belittle someone.

  17. Michael says

    Well done Pauline, keep going as we need a person and a party with your values for Australians to feel at home again. Australians that live with no fear of the future knowing that they will be taken care for. All the weak people of Australia live in fear, those like pensioners, sick, disabled etc… they are not sure what is in front of them while what seems to matter to the government is to look after people who come in our country to impose their ways to Australia. Please try to make sure that in each state we can vote for your party in the next election.

    • Ian Marshall says

      Why should you sink to calling someone a Kafir, which is a derogatory term from South Africa. IThere is also no proof that Halal funds are not funding terrorism, furthermore, this so called Halal certification is world wide, pouring millions into Muslim coffers. It has been said that this is a world wide cinspiracy to fund Islam.
      The fact is 98% of Autralans are paying for this Halal certification. Meat is required to be Moslem Slaughtered, not a pretty sight, but this also should be paid for by Muslims.
      But lets not start calling people names, it serves no purpose, but to lower this forum.

  18. says

    05.04.2015. Dear Pauline: How do you do? HAPPY EASTER! I learned of you today in the AFP/Yahoo News story, “Hundreds protest Islamic law in Australia”. I heartily commend you and your fellow Patriots for courageously resisting the deadly ISLAMIZATION of Australia. Could you please be so kind to contact me by email? I wish to share vital information with you, to assist you and your fellow Patriots win a resounding victory over the ‘Creeping Conquest’ of Political Islam and to spare your Constitutional nation from Sharia Law. Also, could you please help me contact the leadership of “RECLAIMING AUSTRALIA”? Thank you for your kind attention to my requests and soon reply. Sincerely yours for priceless LIBERTY, Scott

  19. rofl says

    Lol you hypocrites want your own citizens to be treated as innocent until proven guilty but when it comes to the issue of halal certification and forcible implementation of Sharia Law, you think it’s OK to reverse the concept because Muslims are involved. There is no credible evidence of either happening. Good luck with your paranoia.

  20. Abdul says

    Pauline your ignorance and fear mongering is not only dangerous but it’s fueling the very divisions you oppose. Claiming that halal certification funds terrorism is like saying kosher certification funds Israel’s killing of women and children in Palestine and the illegal occupation of Palestinian land. How is that you say nothing about that or is it that Israel is paying you to bad mouth Muslims and make blatantly false and defamatory accusations.

    I pity you for your ignorance.

    • Ian Marshall says

      Abdul, there is also no proof, yet, that so called, Halal certification is not funding terrorism. Again Abdul your comments a peurile and show your prejudice..

  21. Trev Dickinson says

    Thank you Pauline. You are one of a very few Australians prepared to say things as you see them. I am offended by the negative tone of the headline on Today and the aggressive questioning of “Deb” who could not have the political depth of knowledge you have. You debated extremely well, relating hard facts.
    You have a lot more support than you might think

  22. George says

    If you need workers we are here for you. We will be back in Qld early May. Pauline if you want help we are here.
    George.

  23. Angie says

    Thought you might like to read the write-up on the CEO of our Postal Services:

    “If this is true – then we are a bunch of mugs!

    Don’t be deterred by the amount of writing and the size of this paragraph.

    It’s well worth the read!

    Australia Post . . . . . . . . . . Recently
    ​​
    Australia Post which is totally government owned and has been for 200 years, announced the loss of 900 jobs, being part of a cut back program.

    This is due to the decline in letters beings sent and that’s true as email has further reduced letter writing and in many ways understandably.

    A hand written letter is a wonderful thing and contains the hand writing of a friend or loved one and that’s a blessing plus the effort required to put pen to paper and then to post it.

    The CEO of Australia Post is Ahmed FAHOUR who was born in Lebanon and came to Australia in 1970.

    In 2009 he was made Managing Director and CEO of Australia Post.

    His salary package was estimated to be worth $4.8 million last year.

    Of this he donated about $2 million to the Islamic Museum of Australia located in Melbourne.

    I have a big problem with this fellow’s salary package and so let’s get some perspective here.

    The top ten executives in Australia Post combined earn around $20 million each year.

    That’s simply immoral and clearly the CEO can afford to give away nearly half his takings to an Islamic museum so he doesn’t need it and surprise, surprise, its tax deductible.
    ​ ​
    The founder and director of the museum is former Macquarie Bank executive Moustafa FAHOUR – Ahmed FAHOUR’S brother.

    Moustafa’s wife, Maysaa, is the chairwoman and director.

    The FAHOURS’ sister, Samira El KHAFIR, is head chef and manages the restaurant on site.

    How can the CEO of the Post Office earn so much especially when the postal service is bleeding money from letter delivery.

    No employee is worth five million a year and especially not from a government owned business.

    The top federal public servants in Australia have salaries of between $665,600 and $844,800 so how does the bloke in charge of the Post Office received $4.8 million?

    The Prime Minister of Australia earns a modest $507,000 considering the real burdens of office while the CEO of the Gold Coast Council earning slightly less and that’s patently out of kilter with the PM’s package.

    The Mayor of GCCC brings in $225,000 so how on earth can the Post Office justify the massive pay of their CEO?.

    Let’s look further; the head of the US postal service with 19 times more staff and 11 times more revenue than Australia Post receives $550,000.

    In France the head of their post office was paid $1.1 million with a staff compliment of 268,000 employees.

    What a country full of mugs we are to sit by and let all this happen.

    I would have run the big game of Post Office for a lot less and still done a reasonable job and in fact if the best of we seniors applied ourselves we could run the damn post office better and for nothing except a kiss and a free lunch now and again.

    You had better believe it too.

    There is an unpleasant and some would say sinister unbalanced agenda in Australia which in the end preys on the average citizen, we the people.

    We are no longer the lucky country and we are no longer wealthy and this particular game of Post Office reveals major fractures and faults on a number fronts in our society and culture.

    Who is running the country, who is pulling the levers and who is going to win? We the Mugs need to know.”

    • Kevin Japanangka says

      It seems that you are not all there with your information concerning the Post Office.
      Post Office is definitely NOT owned by government, never has been owned by government, and never will be owned by government.
      You cannot have a government in your country, until there is a Post Office. Only then may you form a government and certainly NOT before.
      Get over yourself, and get a life, or at least get your info correct before blogging.
      You and many others are hereby warned!!!!
      False & Misleading information concerning the Post Office is a Federal offence!

  24. Ian Marshal says

    Then we have to look at the politicians, the right honourables, getting more than the equivalent in the USA, then snouts in the trough for life. The irony is, vote for this flawed system or get fined. We have globalisation, so I suggest we recruit politicians from Upper Volta. Will do the same job, but much cheaper.

  25. Allan Bolton says

    The real threat to Australia is the super wealthy chinese who are buying up Australian houses, businesses and farms.
    Once they own a business they only employ chinese.
    What concerns me is the C word is rarely mentioned in the Australian media.
    Please reclaim Australia from the bloody chinese.

  26. Ian Marshall says

    I have many Chinese friends, all of whom love Australia, work hard, assimilate into the Australian society, pay taxes (probably more than the ten% shonkey multi nationals pay) and furthermore, they are not trying to convert us, or kill us.
    I am not against any religious group, in so much as they are harmless and don’t try and prejudice my life style..
    Plato said, “Not to take an interest in politics, will mean that we will b governed byth inferior”. We have to pound politiians with what, we the people want, as to say nothing will mean, not only will we be, and are governed, by the inferior, those who jump up and down, will eventually impose on Australia a belief which is alien to us..

  27. Mythrakahn says

    Many years ago i heard of this woman Pauline Hanson, i thought , through the propaganda of the media that you were a racist and a xenophobe. However i have since come to sympathise with your cause and your plight and now hold the firm view that ISLAM IS THE PROBLEM.
    These people need to be stoppped and at any cost, i say. In Myanmar(Burma) buddhist monks are killing muslims and burning them alive. If buddhist monks are driven to do this, which goes against all that buddhism stands for, then there must be a problem.

    I dont need to reiterate the problems with the Islamic faith, any educated person on the subject knows this already. But i would just like to say you are making a differencs. As a former extreme leftist and an advocate for tolerance,I think that there is a time for tolerance and that time has ended in reference to muslims and any follwer of the Islamic faith.

    Soldier on Pauline , have faith in yourself , after all that’s all we really need, and keep up the relentless effort to stop Islam not only in Australia but all the world.

  28. says

    WHY AUSTRALIAN MUSLIMS DON’T LIKE COUNTER-TERRORISM LAWS AND MEASURES

    Three quarters of Australian Muslims think counter-terrorism policing and laws unfairly target their community according to a new study funded by the Australian Research Council.

    Muslims in Australia feel under siege. This has generated a community backlash.

    The authors conclude the police should treat Muslims with respect, impartially, in a trustworthy manner, and give them an opportunity to have a say in counter-terrorism policing. This way Muslims are more likely to trust the police, less likely to feel under siege, and more willing to co-operate.

    They ignore results of a far more worrying nature, the bigger barrier to support and co-operation for counter-terrorism laws and measures.

    A substantial proportion of Australian Muslims out of ignorance of history, cultural baggage, and their religious beliefs, in their hearts or in their heads, don’t agree with them.

    • Ian Marshall says

      Anti terrorist laws target those who wish us harm, so those involved may think it targets a certain group, but it is a certain group that is the only ones plotting this. If there are other groups and ethnic groups involved, anti terrorist laws target them also. No profiling involved, no terror, no need for any anti terrorist laws. Simple don’t you think.

  29. Karen says

    Pauline, I watched you talk about Halal Certification on Sunrise. One of the commentators said they would get back with information on the charges on food for this certification. They believed there were no charges for food to be certified. I have not heard another word from the program producers which back up your statement. I also see that Dick Smith is also against certifying food for a minority.

  30. garth stockden says

    Hello Pauline, you may remember me from your visit to WA in 2004. The reason for this contact is that i’ve written a piece in relation to Aboriginals being forced out of their communities. I’d like to send you a copy if you’d like that piece and i’m happy for you to use any of the content at your discretion. I don’t need any credit or accolades for the piece but i thought i’d ask your permission before sending you unsolicited material. Warmest regards……………garth.
