Crikey Says

Jun 10, 2011

The Hanson prank is funny to a point

The Pauline Hanson plot thickens.

In news just to hand, Crikey’s own Matthew Knott may actually be Pauline Hanson’s electoral roll mole. Or not. We don’t know any more, we’re very confused.

This court case, which looks increasingly like it’s entirely based on some kind of elaborate practical joke, is very, very, very entertaining. It has made mugs of quite a few people, and will most likely leave Hanson with a massive legal bill. And if that isn’t AEC karma coming back to bite her, we don’t know what is.

    Wot, no Crikey on Monday because of the Monarch? Will there be a First Dog Frankl*n commemorative?

    And quite frankly, how could anyone ever contemplate voting for Hanson ever again? She has all the political nous of a brick.
