DID YOU KNOW NICOTINE VAPING IS ILLEGAL?Peter Georgiou - One Nation Senator for Western Australia, delivered a speech on the floor of Parliament supporting the legalisation of vaping to help smokers quit and slammed the Government using smokers as a never-ending cash cow.
Peter Georgiou – One Nation Senator for Western Australia, delivered a speech on the floor of Parliament supporting the legalisation of vaping to help smokers quit and slammed the Government using smokers as a never-ending cash cow.
From 2001 until now, the number of Australians who smoke has fallen from 20% to 12.8%. Yet in the same period the government tax revenue from tobacco has exploded from $4.5 billion to more than $12 billion this year and is set to jump to $17 billion in 2019-2020. Some smokers joke that there will be no one left to pay for the roads when they’re gone and you can see why.
At the same time, vaping liquid nicotine is illegal yet it has been shown to be an incredibly effective stepping stone in getting cigarette smokers to quit. Senator Georgiou asked why this effective treatment method was illegal in Australia given all of the research and evidence from overseas.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT | Here's a recap on the 3-million dollar Federal grant announced by Peter Georgiou - One Nation Senator for Western Australia recently to help refurbish our spiritual home #LitisStadium.And don't forget our annual awards night is on Friday October 5, and tickets can be booked by contacting the club on 9242 1132 or email email@example.com#WeAreAthena #Football #WesternAustralia
Senator Georgiou was successful in lobbying the Federal Government for $3 million in funding for the iconic Floreat Athena Football club to refurbish their spiritual homeground, Litis Stadium.
With soccer being a great passion for the Senator he was especially proud to be part of getting more kids on the pitch, especially when that pitch has brought up sporting champions such as Bobby Despotovski (Perth Glory) and Stan Lazaridis (Perth Glory, Socceroos).
FOR THE KIDS | In case you missed it, here's a wrap of the enourmous pleasure I've had in announcing a federal government grant to help combat the rising rate of obesity and to help an iconic football club in Western Australia secure its future.After all it's all about #kidsinsport #OneNation #PeterGeorgiou #Auspol
Some local councillors seemed to be a bit jealous of Senator Georgiou actually delivering for the iconic club, but at the end of the day common sense will prevail in seeing that funding for getting kids in sport is a win for everyone.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Has local government gone mad? My take on the cold response by the City of Vincent to a…
One Nation Senator for WA Peter Georgiou has played a pivotal role in keeping the embattled Moora Residential College stay open after taking up the case personally with the Federal Government.
Senator Georgiou welcomed the Commonwealth’s decision to inject an $8.7 million refurbishment of the 40-year old college which will give security for its students which is crucial for rural families between Perth and Geraldton.
“After visiting the college and talking to the locals earlier this year, I knew the prospect of the college closing down would create further gaps in the city to country divide” the Senator said.
“Prior to today’s announcement I had lobbied the Commonwealth and secured one million dollars to keep the college open for at least two more years but I’m delighted the Federal Government has seen the light and has topped that funding up to $8.7 million”.
“The closure of the Moora Residential College would have impacted on employment and expenditure in the town and would have led to the loss of at least 15-jobs”.
“I’m stunned as to why WA Labor thought shutting down the College was a smart move and why it should have been accepted by the public in the first place” he added.
“If we want to keep rural communities alive and thriving then we need important infrastructure like the College to attract students from across the state, which has a multiplier effect on the local economy”
Senator Georgiou said this was a clear case where One Nation was the party for the people.
“It’s One Nation that lobbied hard to get an MRI license for Kalgoorlie Hospital, it was One Nation that secured three-million dollars to upgrade the historic Litis football Stadium in Mt Hawthorn and now it’s been left to One Nation again to push for a positive outcome for Moora College” he said.

In a great win for Senator Georgiou, an MRI license has been granted for the Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital. The Senator has fought on this issue for a long time and was happy to finally see the license granted.
GST OVERHAUL | Finally Malcolm Turnbull and his team listened to my calls on behalf of all West Australians for a FAIRER share of GST.It's come but at what cost ??I'd love to hear from you and your thoughts on this too!#GSTForWA #OneNation #PeterGeorgiou #Auspol #WApol
One Nation Senator for Western Australia Peter Georgiou has cautiously offered a luke-warm response to the state’s 4.7 billion dollar Goods and Services Tax windfall following the long awaited findings from the Productivity Commission’s review into the GST saga.
“Being a passionate advocate for GST reform I am pleased Treasurer Scott Morrison has listened to my calls on behalf of all Western Australians for a better and bigger slice of the GST pie” he said.
“This has been long overdue and finally it’s good to see that after eight years Western Australia can expect to see some GST justice!” he added.
“That money will allow the state government to use the funds for schools, hospitals and road upgrades and other infrastructure as needed”.
The Senator also added that in reality, the Commonwealth was doing the minimum as a step toward genuine GST reform.
He said it was clear from the PC report, Western Australia generated more state-sourced revenue than any other state and as a result had been penalised for its achievements over the last decade.
“So what Scott Morrison and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are offering WA is at the very least, what this great state deserves”.
“At the same time I am concerned the government will be forced to dip into its own coffers to the tune of billions of dollars to “ensure no state is worse off”.
“I remain unconvinced about the Commonwealth’s desire or intent to pay off the nation’s rapidly rising debt and have concerns about its budgetary and fiscal management skills”.

One Nation representatives from Queensland to Western Australia attended dawn services and street marches to commemorate ANZAC Day. Senator Pauline Hanson attended a dawn service in Mudgeeraba before travelling to attend the Brisbane street March.
Senator Peter Georgiou along with Senator Brian Burston and WA One Nation leader Colin Tincknell descended onto Albany to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War (1918-2018). It was in November 1914 in Albany where the Anzac spirit was born after 30-thousand service men from across Australia and New Zealand sailed out of King George sound.
For many it was the last time they would see Australia. Despite the drizzle on Anzac morning the sun beamed out later lighting up the Anzac Peace Park on the Albany foreshore for the annual parade down York Street.
During the trip the Parliamentarians planted poppies on Middleton Beach and met several war veterans including 87 year old Korean War veteran Victor, who had been a POW for 18-months, which was truly a humbling moment.
Great numbers for ANZAC services were reported across the country, a testament to the enduring respect Australians have for our service men and women. To all members of our defence force, past and present, thank you.
Lest we forget.

Tonight on 4 Corners, the ABC are discussing immigration.It seems it's ok now days to discuss this topic even though I've been hailed down as racist for the past 21 years. I've been calling for an open and adult conversation about who we let into our country and how many people we let in, to ensure we have the infrastructure and needs of our already 24 million Australians. https://www.onenation.org.au/policies/immigration-and-the-rule-of-law/Take a look at One Nation's Immigration policy and please watch tonights 4 Corners show. I'd be keen to get everyone's feedback.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #Immigration #Australia #4Corners
Monday night on 4 Corners, the ABC discussed immigration.
It seems it’s ok now days to discuss this topic even though I’ve been hailed down as racist for the past 21 years for doing the same thing.
I’ve been calling for an open and adult conversation about who we let into our country and how many people we let in, to ensure we have the infrastructure and needs of our already 24 million Australians. It’s far past time for Australia to have that conversation.
