Pauline’s plight hard to hide from when it’s in the books

Pauline Hanson would never admit that anything is awry within her party, but there may only be so long she can delay inevitable calamity.

Ghosts of the past keep on popping up for Senator Pauline Hanson even as she dug in her heels over the latest public debate regarding the eligibility of Senator Malcolm Roberts to hang out in the red chamber. She's in the national spotlight now for her burqa stunt, but maybe she should think twice about inviting intense scrutiny. 

The One Nation leader spent part of last week batting away media questions related to her Senate colleague. Roberts has been referred to the High Court by his own leader to get clarity over his citizenship, dual or otherwise.

    Wonderful photo, captures the sweetness of her personality perfectly, and shows why she should wear a burqua more often…!!

      Hear. Hear. My biggest disappointment was when she took it off. She seems more human and decent with it on.

    It’s so nice that in the 21stC parliamentarians are not judged on their looks.
    Otherwise people might say unkind things about …insert bete noir of choice..
