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

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

    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!

    • says

      That’s because Muslims have always been in conflict. Firstly, in conflict in their own country and then in others. Their philosophy teaches them this is normal.

  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.

    • Dr. Jena Zelezny says

      Casie, your comments are not based in any actual knowledge of people or difference. I have read the Koran and there is no mention of animals, especially dogs, being inferior. There is however, a wariness around dogs because of rates of infection from rabies in places such as Somalia and other African countries with a large Muslim population. Both adults and children have been taught to beware of dogs because of this.

      Parents are justifiably worried about dogs when they first arrive here and it takes time for them to get used to the fact that Australia is currently free of rabies.

  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.. .

          • Bob Greene says

            Ian Marshall, you and the rest of the Hanson supporters are narrow-minded, delusional and backward thinking scums.

    • jimmy says

      The average abo does not stand a chance to buy property when the british came, if you cant afford something means you are weak, less competitive and less educated, In a globalised world, you are competit with people all around the world, if the americans pushed the house price, are you gonna blame the americans? Blame yourself for not studying or working hard enough. BTW the average family income is 145k per year in australia and how much is the median house price in australia? On the other hand, if a chinese paid 1m for my 500k house, whos laughing? The reserve bank said that properties in aus are 30% under their value. There are reasons why property market is booming, but foreign investors are not the ones to blame as the majority (88%) were sold to locals.

  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

      • Bob Greene says

        Look at these petty people who call them selves Australian. The real Australians are the one who will support people from other races, countries and religions.

  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.

  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!

      • Jenny Smith says

        Kevin, Australia Post is owned 100% by the Australian Government? I am not sure what you are talking about in your comment.

  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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

    I just like to say that Aussie’s are discriminated in their own country. We can’t get jobs, We can’t even get Newstart from the government as we have worked all our lives and have actually have something (like a House) that we worked hard to buy. If an Aussie has a home the government won’t give you a helping hand when you loose your job. All the migrants get housing, money and health assistance. So why don’t Aussie’s.
    We are discriminated when we go to hospitals, or apply for jobs. “Do we have work visa’s, are we aboriginal or torres strait people”. Why don’t migrants from other countries get asked the same questions – why do they assume that white Aussies are related in some way.

    I’m sick of the way Aussies are treated – this is our Country – what is the Government doing? – Only looking after their bank balances.
    How about politically correct for us!!!

  32. Margaret Simmonds says

    Welcome back Pauline, we need you to keep the spineless polititions accountable. Nobody is listening to the fears of the general public, we have already seen the threats to Australians.
    If these people do not want to become Aussies they should go home, we have the most wonderful nation in the world, we do not need these freedom hating people in our Country.
    There is not a law for Aussies and a law for others in our Community, if they do not like revealing their faces, politics etc. do not come here, we only want citizens who want freedom, pride in Australia, obey the laws of the Country, if they do not suit do not come here.
    AUSTRALIA FOREVER.

    No I have not already said this, this is the 1st time I have commented on Pauline”s views

    • Dr. Jena Zelezny says

      It’s interesting to hear that you consider yourself to be a lover of freedom when your views are so hateful. And you cannot even spell. It’s politicians not politicians.

      Remember, there’s nothing to fear except fear itself and there is such a thing as Human Rights. We all live on the same planet and it’s about time to realise that Australia is just one country among many.

    Thank God someone has the guts to finally come out and say what needs to be said. Australian women fought for equality. We have won our own war and have taken our place proudly as equals in our community. What the hell was the government of the time thinking when they allowed this backward, anti feminist cult to permeate our culture? The abhorrence of FGM. The disgusting Sharia law. The destruction of young minds. The terror that has been foisted on our community. We have only seen the beginning. I said in the 1970s, we will rue the day we ever let this vile “culture” to darken our doorstep. We would be better off giving every Muslim $1M to leave the country than to face our future with this horrendous, ever increasing number of haters of humanity, destroying our hard earned peace. I am sick of the rubbish about Islam not being at fault. It is at the root of the terrorism. Without Islam, there is no ISIS terrorism. How can anyone seriously worship a God who married a child and consummated that marriage before the child was even 10 years old? It is time the truth about this vile “religion” was told. I am sick of this rubbish about Islam being about love and peace. It is about the destruction of everything that this country has fought for. It is about the end of the freedom that we have prized and deserved. Go Pauline! You have MANY more supporters than you can possibly imagine!

    Good on you Pauline, Always had my Vote. If the government backed your views years ago Australia would
    be a better place for it now!

    Pauline, I’ve voted for you before and I’ll do so again.
    Sick to death of the muslim propaganda that flows everyday via the media, it’s an media invasion by stealth. ‘everyone” will get used to Islamic bias that comes daily, doesn’t even matter if it’s a negative, it’s still about Islam
    I’ve said a long time ago that the next world war will be between The Christians & I lam, and it’s already started !! but not everybody knows this !!!

    Hi Pauline,
    The concerns you voiced in your past political life about various threats to the Australian way of life have one-by-one become reality.
    So it is good to hear you speaking out again about social issues such as the request by young Australians wanting to return after joining the Islamic State fighters.
    Hopefully in the future you will again be in Parliament and be heard as a voice of reason for common sense analysis of problematic social issues.
    Thanks, Frank, Canberra.

    It’s interesting how lack of information, lack of empathy and compassion for others, and bigotry are linked.

    Hi Pauline, I believe that you are running for the Senate this year, so you might be interested in Chapter 47: Getting ‘Preferential’ Politics to Work using the Citizens Initiated Referendum that allows people to vote through you to a major party. If you choose well, you could get a lot of votes. There are many chapters outlining changes that the major parties won’t touch that are necessary, such as Chapter 54: The Determination Orgene, Selecting the Best, and a General Solution to ‘Struggle Street’ and the World’s Overpopulation. Chapter 55 is below. Regards, Darryl

    Chapter 55: Compassion and Addiction, Synchronicity is a Proverb, the Placebo Effect and the Government’s Responsibility for Compassion

    http://darrylpenney.com

    Abstract: love and compassion are orgenes and would be expected to be similar, but they are not. Compassion is a modern addiction of the mind and is the cause of our current extinction event fuelled through the placebo effect. Synchronicity is shown to be a Proverb, and compassion has evolved and is desirable, but needs to be managed through social security and the responsibility lies with government.

    Orgenes have appeared in the last two chapters as the death orgene and the determination orgene and it is becoming apparent that there are a number of these, such as love, compassion etc. that link the life processes with non-logical operations so as to allow evolution. Whilst death might be a ‘stable state’ and something that we can comprehend easily, determination, love and compassion are a little ‘touchy feely’ and could do with a solid scientific base to make them more ‘usable’ and definable.

    Let’s go back to basics, so from previously, where: the Half-truth may be true, false, ‘true some of the time and false the rest of the time’, and ‘both true and false at the same time’.

    Formal logic is true/false, ‘true some of the time and false the rest of the time’ led us into existence and ‘both true and false at the same time’ was said to be indeterminate/chaos and too difficult to comprehend and would be left for later. The Half-truth, presents a reality because it is continuous and covers all possibilities and so it should cover the ‘touchy feely’ cases as well, and we find that the ‘true and false at the same time’ term is where we need to look.

    The orgene is a combination of the logical and the non-logical at the same time and this is necessary because it is being done and it is only being done because of the Rule of Life. In other words, the organization might be complex, but the logic is simple (and there is no going back) and there are logical aspects and non-logical aspects. Is there any difference between true/logical and false/non-logical? The definition of the Half-truth doesn’t appear to see any difference, so I’ll press on.

    I am going to be quoting from a book entitled ‘Love and Survival: the scientific basis for the healing power of intimacy’ by Dr. Dean Ornish. Many instances are given where discussion groups and support groups have lengthened the life of people that have had heart problems, cancer etc. This type of interaction has been looked at previously in chapter 40: The Placebo – Nocebo Continuum, chapter 41: The Cell to the Placebo Effect, and chapter 42: The Second Law of Life with Stress and Placebo.

    Dr.Ornish’s book cites a large range of experiments that seem particularly compelling and provides an opportunity to look at more orgenes. I might restate that the first Law of Life is about creation of life, the second about the environment and the third about the family with the proviso that the three laws are inter-related. Now the third law has not been discussed much before because it relates to the family and family relationships have grown out of the need to teach the young to give them a better chance of survival on their own and has become more important as the size (of both the animal and thus the investment) has grown.

    The death orgene is a step away from componentization and the determination orgene is a step away from iteration, and both of these are factors in the first Law of Life. Now love/compassion are orgenes that are a step away from the third Law of Life and whether they are separate or two sides of the same thing, we will have to decide and that will lead to some surprises. In dealing with many of the concepts, it is difficult to ‘pigeon hole’ them because, as mentioned previously, we, in our world O, use a different type of measurement units than is used in the universe, world P. In the same way, we use the vast majority of words, such as love and compassion etc. without a basic single definition. A look in a dictionary will confirm the multitude of ‘shades’ to a word, and I have tended to use a ‘/’ to denote these ‘shades’.

    For example, science admits to space-time and that there is a fifth dimension, but it is unknown, as stated in the paper by Kaluza and Klein, whereas I believe there is a fifth dimension of entanglement/measurement and our universe is a probability space, as mentioned earlier. How does one describe the relationship between two points in a probability field where the sum of all points must always be 1? We know that there is entanglement in the determinacy of different types of particles, as mentioned previously, and also, by definition that we can measures the value between two points.

    ‘Grace is also the organizing force behind “coincidences”, the synchronistic experiences in our lives that some consider chance but are definitely not random.’ (Invisible Acts of Power, Caroline Myss, p 17) This quotation contains the word ‘grace’ that will be looked at later, but ‘synchronicity’ is interesting because it is supposed to be a relationship between people/things that changes, presumably by the mind. From above, I do believe that there is entanglement/measurement between two points, but synchronicity is a higher order that I don’t believe that we can be justified in contemplating. It is tempting, because synchronicity is similar or aligns with entanglement/measurement, but finding patterns (confabulation) from fragments is heritable, and is a more likely explanation. It is also likely, from the Rule of Life that if there were an effect from synchronicity, the effect would change reality and have been used and would still be with us.

    Synchronicity was put forward by Jung a hundred years ago and his standing and reputation was such, that the word has come into the language without a real definition, only a vague ‘sense’. Perhaps, all that we can say is simply that randomicity is not synchronicity and synchronicity is not randomicity, but what is it? From above, we showed that it is probably not physical, which means it is mental and can only be a concept and we have a general method of dealing with concepts, so the Mathematics of the Mind should help us.

    It so happens that I use a saying that ‘everything turns out for the best’ because it is the act of looking at the problem and seeing where the best is, and the fact of that ‘looking’ often finds a better solution, or a better result occurs because of the ‘looking’. It is a method of positive thinking, and it works. For example, I have completely uncivilized ‘boat-people’ housed next to my unit and to stop hearing them, I play the guitar and sing and I am getting quite good with the guitar, so ‘everything turns out for the best’! I am becoming proficient with the guitar. Simple general solutions to the Mathematics of the Mind are proverbs that work most of the time, but not to be replied upon, as mentioned previously (chapter 22: Magic, Proverbs, Politics and the Voting System).

    Given that synchronicity is not randomicity, it must be something that produces the ‘feeling’ of ‘things going our way’ and yet it is not physical, so, I believe that synchronicity is a proverb with the same basis as ‘everything turns out for the best’, as described above. In other words, the concept that the mind influences everything in the material and the immaterial world to help us in some way, has the same effect as saying that I use my mind to seek out possibilities that I have not previously considered that will benefit me. If the reader is not convinced that synchronicity is a proverb, remember that the aim of this book is to simplify so that we can absorb and use concepts more easily and I am prepared to think that synchronicity, without a firm definition, is equivalent to ‘everything turns out for the best’.

    From above, ‘grace is also the organizing force’, so what is grace? ‘In theology, grace is defined as unmerited divine assistance, aid given to help us regenerate our spirits and lives – a virtue coming from God. The concept of grace exists around the world. In secular history, kings, as representatives of divine power on earth, would grant mercy and pardon, or grace, to their subjects. In Greek mythology, the three graces were sister goddesses, daughters of Zeus, who bestowed joy, charm, and beauty on mortals.’ (p 16)

    From above, a difficulty occurs because of the range of meanings for words, and the simplest method is to give them a unique meaning and so I’ll take the graces from Greek mythology, which ‘were sister goddesses, daughters of Zeus, who bestowed joy, charm, and beauty on mortals’. These graces could be considered to be useful and heritable and thus, could be called anti-orgenes. This contrasts with two other forces that are well-known orgenes that are not logical, and in fact, so illogical, that the World is in the grip of an extinction event that the planet has not seen since the Cambrian. These are love and compassion and will arise out of the problem below.

    I have tried to simplify throughout this book and I’ll do so again. The experiments referred to above in Dr.Ornish’s book are A: longevity increases, correlated with the warmth of the relationship with parents decades before, B: longevity increases, correlated with marriage/confidant, C: longevity increases, correlated with support groups, D: longevity increases, correlated with owning a pet or being petted. I have condensed many experiments over many pages in Dr. Ornish’s book to the above four lines and written them in such a way that the results are obvious and not easily forgotten.

    The mind/brain evolved hundreds of millions of years ago in fish, probably around the time of the Cambrian, as mentioned previously, and is best thought of as a component and comes into this world in a ‘cut-down’ form for a number of reasons to do with the physics of delivery at birth. Essentially, the neurons are there, but not the connections and the state of mind is thus dependent on upbringing. In A above, the warmth of the relationship with parents decades before, presumably ‘sets the state’ of mind for the decades later, and brings A into line with the other cases B, C and D.

    Then, to explain all of the cases A to D, I believe that we need look no further than the placebo/nocebo effect, and whilst several chapters have been cited above, a simple restatement might be useful. Single celled organisms joined together to form multicellular organisms to enable them to evolve lensed eyes and consciousness/creativity in the Cambrian. This increase in size produced a reality unattainable to single cells, and a covenant had to be put in place that every cell had communication with the brain and the brain produced a mind/brain that attained consciousness/creativity and could make decisions. As each cell contributes to the mind/brain, the mind/brain sends messages to the cells and this produces the placebo/nocebo effect. As has been mentioned before, an exalted level of mental view affects the cells of the body and increases longevity and explains A to D.

    If this is a little short and simple, a deeper investigation of B should increase the understanding. The participants that were married with or without a confidant and those single with a confidant followed the same path of longevity into the future, whereas single without a confidant had much shorter longevity, showing, I believe, that mental stimulation feeds back to the cells and stimulates them and produces health and longevity.

    As an example of how ‘strong’ is the physical effect that comes from mental thought, around 1550, ‘Bloody’ Mary, Queen of England announced twice that she was pregnant and both times they were ‘phantom’ pregnancies, so great was her desire for an heir. This indicates the degree of ‘motivation’ handed to the cells by the mind wanting to become pregnant to continue the succession.

    Love that ultimately produces children and spending time and money on the less successful people are orgenes from a logical perspective. However, other people have different ideas. ‘A man in one of my workshops took me aside to tell me the story of his divorce. It remains unique in my experience. This man told me that his wife found his compassion for others impossible to live with. As he told me, “my ex-wife believes that people should take care of themselves. I have always believed people should take care of other people”’. (p 143)

    If love and compassion are orgenes from a logical perspective, the paragraph above shows clearly that many people do not agree with that premise. A little further back we considered cases A to D and found that mental stimulation was good for longevity and the body in general, but this presents a disastrous situation where the vast majority of people are thinking and acting illogically! Let me restate that love produces offspring to compete with us and the helping of the unfortunate to compete with us must be considered orgenes and not in our best interests from a logical standpoint, but obviously we do this because it makes us feel good mentally which flows through to the body through the placebo/nocebo effect.

    Wow! We are, in the main, addicted to doing good works, and this act is supported by the Churches and government. The Churches help the poor and the government gives welfare to the poor and those that can’t work and we all feel happy! This state of euphoria is destroying our civilization and causing a worldwide extinction event! Where is the world going to, when at least one Church discourages contraception? Similarly for governments, that in the last chapter, we showed that they were giving social security handouts to the wrong people and here it is again! Remember that governments have the ‘strength’ of reality and Churches do not have a reality and are actually dependant on governments, as discussed earlier, so governments have to enforce their will. A Church that does not listen and work with the government is a terrorist organization as discussed in chapter 38: Stopping Terrorism – a General Solution.

    Looking at the world in terms of reality, it has been shown that the government, police and judiciary obey reality and the same can be said for the United Nations as well as business and workers, in all probability because they operate under Survival of the Fittest. From this, the reality of civilization, points to the fact that social security, from above, is an orgene and is illogical and is not a reality and not sustainable. Compassion is not part of Survival of the Fittest, but love and procreation is necessary for evolution. Compassion is an orgene that has only been (effectively) in existence in modern times. Our minds have ‘twisted’ the basis (or logic) of multicellular organisms and compassion could be called a ‘cancer’ of the organism in the same way that cancer is a ‘modern’ disease. This ‘cancer’ of the mind is an addiction caused by a modern orgene that was unknown for 3000 million years.

    Wow, again! Our modern lifestyle has not only created the ‘modern’ diseases like cancer, heart problems etc. it has created a perversion of the reality imposed by the formation of multicellular organisms which is throwing evolution into reverse! We have taken over from Survival of the Fittest (iteration) by using our mind/brain and mathematics to undo evolution in a few hundred years. The full Mathematics of the Mind has to be used to convert the Selection of the Indifferent (that we have at present: mind/mathematics) to selection of the Best (mind/Mathematics of the Mind).

    Under Survival of the Fittest, there was very limited capacity to carry those that couldn’t support themselves, and even over the last 10,000 years as the mind/brain took over, only a limited number of people could be ‘carried’, however, over the last hundred years, our society has changed and welfare spending has ‘blown out’. I don’t want to get involved in this area because everyone knows that there are grave problems and it is up to the government to sort this out.

    A small ‘sharpening’ of our focus might be informative. From previously, the organisational logic behind a cell is similar to the organisational logic of the body and should be similar to our government because they all possess reality. The people (cells) vote for and elect a government (brain) that passes laws for the benefit of the voters (cells) by using parliamentary process (mind) to the benefit of the voters (cells). Thus, this process is the same as goes on in our bodies (and cells) because of the Rule of Life. We previously determined that government is a reality, and the illustration clarifies the situation. Further, it is apparent that world government is similar and it is the government that is ultimately responsible for who should breed and for managing Survival of the Best. However, if government is lacking foresight/application, there is the Forever Club, as mentioned previously.

    I have used the word ‘addiction’ and perhaps I should justify this. ‘The Rule of 3 states that you CANNOT survive:
    3 seconds without spirit or hope,
    3 minutes without air,
    3 hours without shelter in extreme conditions,
    3 days without water,
    3 weeks without food, and
    3 months without companionship or love. (The Survivors Club, Ben Sherwood, p 128) ‘I had not considered, before writing this book, that caring for others and going that extra mile for family, friends, coworkers, or strangers could have a connection to our physical health. Now I believe that the human spirit needs to develop generosity and compassion to be healthy.’ (Invisible Acts of Power, Caroline Myss, p 6)

    The above shows that companionship/love is necessary for survival and generosity/compassion to be healthy and that is for the family/tribe (third Law of Life) so it is not difficult to imagine that compassion etc. could be expanded to include the whole world (second Law of Life), as most religions state (as I have said that the laws are interdependent). So, when predation is removed, we have a problem with overpopulation worldwide.

    To stop the extinction event that we are in, due to overpopulation, we can support those that are alive, at present, but a scheme as described in the previous chapter must be implemented to change evolution and stop the breeding of those people that don’t show determination. This is a scheme that can be put in place and that does not eliminate compassion from the population, but it allows the government control of it in a positive way, and I suspect, it will pay for itself by reducing social security, cost of prisons, mental health savings etc. and then the positives of working longer, reduced nursing home costs etc., and this has all been considered previously.

    To restate this important point, using the Mathematics of the Mind, it is necessary to understand and solve the problem of compassion, which is a good ‘force’, but if used without understanding, can cause an extinction event, as it is doing. We need the Survival of the Best, to speed up evolution, but it must be handled properly because we can wipe out (up to) 3,000 million years of evolution if the climate ‘flips’. This may not be likely, but there is a non-zero probability of it happening, and so, why take the risk?

    Conclusion: I don’t know what the conclusion will be! I have outlined the problem and the solution and it is up to those in government to get the world back on track by limiting compassion because compassion is foreign and addictive to our minds, and is a modern ‘disease’ brought on by our attempt to control our destiny without the proper tools. Compassion seems to be a good thing, but it is an orgene and consequently must be handled ‘with care’ because it is illogical and addictive.

    Pauline Hanson deserves a fair go, which she has never had, mostly due to Labor Party Supporters entrenched within the party who have held up or destroyed Media Releases, Ordered Candidates not to campaign, just be a name on the ballot paper. Frustrated and blocked fundraising efforts. Destroying Public credibility, with holding Vital information from Pauline, allowing her to go to jail, when that vital information could have saved her but was with held and did not go before a judge until the appeal, and that only happened because her supporters took things in hand from Sydney. Cutting off support from their last remaining member of Parliament in Queensland. Now we see Pauline taking over the party and she still is unaware the worst saboteurs are still in place and are back at work undermining her. Pauline needs to be informed I hold the evidence to prove my claims and she can access that information to get rid of her enemies from within her own camp.

  42. Khali says

    You have a very English sounding name which makes your origin to be from either the UK or somewhere in the British Isles thus before you preach to “Reclaim Australia”, I strongly suggest you pack up and get the hell out of here and “reclaim the land” you came from and give this land back to the people you stole it from. The people who deserve to ‘reclaim Australia” are the aborigines whom you treated and still do as animals – In Australia, until the 1960s, Aborigines came under the ‘Flora & Fauna Act’, which classified them as animals, not human beings.

    Regarding Sharia….there are 57 Muslim nations in the world and to my knowledge only 2 have “some form” of the sharia law (Saudi Arabia, your best friend and Iran). You have absolutely no clue what Sharia means thus I suggest you educate yourself first. You are noting but a racist and people like you don’t deserve to be called Australian…

  43. Barbara Lawler says

    Dear Pauline – What are the cultural values you are trying to protect? We have a country in such deep pain. We have an ICE epidemic in Australia. We have one of the highest suicide rates in the world. People desparately need to find purpose for their lives. It won’t happen this way.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with any other people or newcomers to this country. In fact, all the waves of immigration – and your family was one – have done nothing but good for this country – have increased the domestic market, employment opportunities but more importantly the quality of life.

    When do we start taking responsibility for our own life choices instead of looking for others to blame. I don’t want your ‘politics of hate’. Look at what happened in Charleston USA as a result of those very politics. I say no for myself and no for Australia. We need to find a new level of mature and wise statesmanship. We need to build bridges with some of the very sound people from the whole range of this culturally diverse nation. I feel so ashamed as an Australian of this meanness of spirit and we are starting to pay for that lack of generosity. It is very true that the greatest security for any nation is the love and gratitude of its neighbours. Your politics are a huge disappointment to me and in fact negate the pride I have as an Australian in our culture of big-heartedness.

  44. Simon Hoyle says

    Dear Pauline,
    I sent this to Jacqui Lambie. Few too many politicians honestly standing up for Australia’s culture and beliefs.
    Keep fighting the good fight. When you first started in politics 20+ years ago, you were right. Australia is facing a clear and present danger to our way of life. That danger is ISLAM, Halal Certification and the funding of terrorism from those monies dishonestly taken from ordinary Australian’s. Halal Certification needs to be stopped before it is too late.

    Stay strong,
    Kind regards and thanks for being who you are.

    Dear Jacquie,
    My name is Simon Hoyle and I am a proud Tasmanian / Australian. I departed Tasmania in 1989 and served in the Royal Australian Navy for 17 years. I have been deeply concerned for many years that multiculturalism in Australia is at threat. The imminent threat is ISLAM. I used to listen to Pauline Hansen as a teenager and always believed that her message that Australia we will face terrorist attacks on our shores will eventuate one day. I have always been of the same opinion. And here we are today facing a clear and present danger to our way of life all for Muslim sensitivity. Those that follow such a faith are not interested in conforming to this great countries culture and beliefs. Clearly proven by terrorists plotting to bomb the MCG, the Lindt Café siege and other plots uncovered by our Australian Federal Police and ASIO personnel. The idealologies of ISLAM and the Muslim faithful wish to turn this country into something we are currently not. Introduction of Halal Certification by stealth and secrecy is the first of a serious problem. Cadbury chocolate is a fine example. I wonder how many Tasmanians have lost there jobs due to decreasing chocolate sales. I now reside in WA and see first hand the effect of the Australian public knowing of the Halal Certification. Cadbury’s is always on sale, and shelves always full.. I am an Atheist, I don’t believe I should be forced to support Halal when Australian Companies now avoid labelling there products accordingly. I also wonder how the RSPCA would react to Animal slaughterhouses torturing cattle IAW Halal requirements. Rorting of the welfare system whereby Muslim men can have multiple wives and rort welfare is another. I believe there is a Senate Enquiry to address the Halal Certification scam. I only hope that Halal Certification in Australia is shut down immediately. Funds associated with Halal Certification? Where do they go? Being an X-Army Service person, I am positive that you must also be deeply concerned that illegal transferring of funds to support terrorism in overseas countries is taking place.
    To be honest, I was never a fan of your work when you were first elected and associated with the Palmer United Party. The more I have seen you on TV and the severed tie from Clive Palmer, the more I believe that you are at times a thorn in the side of both major political parties in Australia. You are definitely not a Sarah Hansen Young either. Keep fighting the good fight for Tasmanians and Australian’s. Bringing attention to the Halal Scam doesn’t make any ordinary Australian’s racist, it is those that call the racism card are in fact ignorant to the present threat to Australia. Pauline Hansen and yourself have a lot in common. You both might be labelled westies or bogans. I say great, for once, no one sugar coating the facts. ISLAM is here in Australia, and If no one has the balls to stand up to this very dangerous idealogy, we as Australian’s are all in a lot of trouble.
    Thankyou for taking the time to read my email.
    Kind regards and thanks
    Simon Hoyle

      How many Muslims do you actually know?

      I am a Christian and know many Muslims whom I greatly respect. Like us, they are not all the same. It’s not one size fits all. Indonesia, our nearest neighbour with 246 million people, 85% Muslim, where I have visited numerous times and love the country and the people. Most of them condemn the violence of some who call themselves Muslim because for them, that is not Islam. I would like to see a bit less ignorance and bit more real information in this debate in Australia. If Indonesian Islam was as hateful as is described on this website, with their numbers, they would have overrun us long ago. They don’t because that is not how they practise Islam. We are very blessed to have them as neighbours. Let’s start dealing with the emotive fear-mongering that in fact just poisons the possibilities of collaboration in the future and escalates the possibilities of violence – and the attitude of hate and fear advocated on this website will have played a significant part in that. There are inspired alternatives to this polarisation and division. Let’s search for those together.

      How many Muslims do you actually know?

      I am a Christian and know many Muslims whom I greatly respect. Like us, they are not all the same. It’s not one size fits all. Indonesia, our nearest neighbour with 246 million people, 85% Muslim, where I have visited numerous times and love the country and the people. Most of them condemn the violence of some who call themselves Muslim because for them, that is not Islam. I would like to see a bit less ignorance and bit more real information in this debate in Australia.

There are inspired alternatives to this polarisation and division. I think we will do better if we search for those together.

    This is a plea.I am not against the Chinese people,but I am dead set against them destroying Australia’s food bowl,the Liverpool Plains.If the Chinese government is allowed to mine there, we will be risking the regions crucial water supplies.There is no current party, that I would vote for,willing to stop this mine from going ahead.My plea is for Pauline to start up a new political party,or reinvent an old one,so that the Australian people can have a party who will fight for us.Please Pauline, gather all willing people and have a delegate for every seat in Australia.We must stand united.
