“Pull Out of UN Paris Agreement Now” – Pauline Hanson

Is there a single person here who didn’t think it was a bad idea to sign up to the Paris Agreement?

Australians are sick of being dictated to by unelected bureaucrat with no regard for the best interests of Australians. We should never have signed the Paris Agreement and we should pull out as soon as we can!

Mark Latham & Pauline Hanson Tell Longman about Bill Shortens Lies

The major parties and the Greens have been put LAST on our how to vote cards in the byelection of Longman. With 11 candidates in the running, that's a long way down the list.Thanks to your membership and kind donations to the party, we've been able to light a little fire under Labor by rebuking their lies with some straight, honest phone calls from former Labor leader, Mark Latham. The phone calls cost us quite a few dollars to put out across Longman, but thanks to the media, the whole country now knows Bill Shorten and Labor have told too many lies and have been caught out.It's these lies that have made me decide to put Labor second last on our how to vote cards and if they want to continue with their lies over the next few weeks, they've got a whole lot more punishment yet to come.#Auspol #PaulineHanson #OneNation #Longman #LaborLies

Pauline Hanson asked for 3 new coal fired power stations

Again the National Party have tried stealing another One Nation policy.During the last sitting of Parliament, I put to the Government that North Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria all need a new coal fired power station built to drive electricity prices down.I was told NO quite soon after that discussion took place.I wasn't shy about my plans either - I made sure people in Canberra knew I wanted them. Clearly that's where the National Party picked up the idea and ran with it today in the Australian. Perhaps the National Party can come and have a meeting with me and I'll share a some additional policies they can help me drive. Let's start with the Cane Growers Code of Conduct. Forget more reviews, there's been a Prime Minister's Inquiry under Abbott and a Senate Inquiry too. Both recommended a Code of Conduct.

Government Plays Citizenship Catch Up

Yet again, the Government has had to play catch up to One Nation in their Citizenship policy. If they could use some common sense in assessing who we let into our country, Australia would be in a much better position.

CITIZENSHIP REFORM | Pauline Hanson calls for tougher citizenship test

Today I moved a private senator's bill addressing the issues of immigration and citizenship reform.The Government has failed to tackle this issue and has abandoned its attempts to legislate a solution. So it looks like it is up to One Nation to make sure this is put back on the agenda and debated.FIND OUT MORE: http://bit.ly/2GWfeR8One Nation has also released an updated policy on Immigration and I am keen to hear what you think.IMMIGRATION POLICY: bit.ly/ONImmigrationPolicy#PaulineHanson #OneNation #Citizenships #CitizenshipReform #ImmigrationReform

Since 1996 Senator Pauline Hanson has been calling for a stop to Australia’s high immigration levels and today she has taken the Government to task by tabling an amended version of their abandoned citizenship bill.

“Australians are now suffering the effects, mostly in our cities, not only from high immigration, but from the impact that is occurring on people’s lives when new migrants who have no regard for our culture, way of life or laws, do not assimilate and don’t wish to. It is these people Australians are rejecting but their calls for control by governments, fall on deaf ears”, Senator Hanson said.

“Australian citizenship is a privilege, something that is earned, respected and cherished. This could not possibly be the case if citizenship is available after 1 year’s residency on a permanent visa and by passing a pathetic multiple choice test, not requiring to speak, read or write English. I am infuriated like many Australians are, including those who were once migrants themselves and are now Aussies,” Senator Hanson said.

In her amended bill Senator Hanson is calling for the waiting period for citizenship to be 8 years on a permanent visa, instead of the Governments proposed 4 years.

“Permanent residents have the same rights in this country as do its citizens, other than voting. We don’t have to rush in to handing out citizenship papers. Once they are citizens we cannot remove them from our shores if they are criminals, persons of bad character, or wish harm to our country and people,” Senator Hanson said.

Coinciding with the Senators move to reignite debate on the issues of citizenship and immigration reform, One Nation has also released a revised immigration policy.

One Nation’s revised Immigration policy recognises the invaluable contribution of overseas born Australians, who have enriched our culture, committed to our values, our laws, our political institutions and the equality of the sexes.
“Population size and immigration are never open for debate or public input by any of the political parties except One Nation. The people of Australia have a right to know what their politicians have in store for our country when it comes to the population size and the cultural destiny of our country. I well and truly believe we need to let the people have their say,” Senator Hanson said.

Pauline Hanson Tax Cuts Press Conference

You might have heard that One Nation will not be supporting the Government's corporate tax cuts. After speaking with my fellow One Nation Senators and reflecting on the Turnbull Government's budget, It was decided that I cannot, in good conscience, support their corperate tax cut policy because they have done absolutely nothing to address my concerns about immigration rates, support for pensioners, changes to the Petroleum Rent Resource Tax and how we collect royalties from multinationals ripping the guts out of the country, the cost of electricity, support for apprenticeships and holding the banks to account.If you would like to know more about why One Nation has reached this decision I covered this in great detail during an extensive media conference today.

Pauline Hanson sinks Turnbull’s company tax plan

Joe Kelly – The Australian

Pauline Hanson has dealt what appears to be a fatal blow to the government’s company tax cuts by withdrawing support for the package and producing a list of near impossible demands, declaring that Malcolm Turnbull has failed to sell the reform’s benefits.

The One Nation leader, who controls three Senate seats, cited her disappointment with the government’s strategy on debt ­reduction, warning the budget was built on “eggshells” and could “crash at any time” while calling out the Coalition’s failure to support coal-fired power to reduce soaring power bills.

The decision forces the Prime Minister back to the drawing board over the key economic ­policy he took to the 2016 double-dissolution election, with Senator Hanson saying she no longer believes the government has been “upfront and honest with me and the public”.

Centre Alliance, which has two upper house seats, yesterday re­affirmed its view that it was not the right time for company tax cuts, with senator Stirling Griff saying he wanted an “iron clad” guarantee from the government that ­essential services would not be cut.

Senator Hanson’s backflip comes ahead of the “Super Saturday” by-elections.

One Nation candidate Matthew Stephen will contest the Queensland seat of Longman, which is held by Labor on a slim margin of 0.8 per cent.

Senator Hanson, who supported the corporate tax package in March, told The Australian she was unconvinced that the slow phase-in of the corporate tax cuts to 2026-27 would stimulate job creation, one of the key reasons she previously backed the package.

“The whole fact is, if they’re ­serious about this, then start doing something about it now … This government is talking about it six or eight years down the track. Well, that’s not good enough,” Senator Hanson said.

“The people in general don’t want it. It has not been well ­received. The government has not been able to sell the package to the people and they haven’t cut through.”

The only way for the government to have a chance of winning back Senator Hanson’s support would be to implement a dramatic overhaul of the Petroleum ­Resource Rent Tax and commit to a new gas pipeline connecting the west and east coasts.

Senator Hanson said yesterday she was disappointed the pilot ­apprenticeship scheme she negotiated with the government in ­return for supporting the corporate tax cuts did not appear in the budget papers.

“My main concern is that we wanted to create jobs, which we did with the apprentice scheme and also to get revenue into the country to pay down debt,” she said.

“Upon reflection, in the budget, the government has done absolutely nothing. I couldn’t see anything there about the thousand-place apprenticeship scheme.”

Tapping into the Coalition’s ­internal war on energy policy, Senator Hanson argued that one of the reasons she was pulling her support was the government’s failure to provide funding for a new coal-fired power station.

“There is nothing in the budget about a coal-fired power station,” she said. “Unless they start reducing energy prices we are going to lose businesses.”

The government has already legislated the first phase of its enterprise tax plan to pass on relief for businesses with a turnover of up to $50 million, but has not ­received support for the second stage of the plan to reduce the corporate rate to 25 per cent for all businesses by 2026-27, which will cost $35.6 billion.

With Labor and the Greens ­opposed to the second stage of the plan, the government needs to win nine of the 11 crossbench votes to pass the package through the parliament — an impossible equation without One Nation on side.

One Nation will stand by the already legislated company tax cuts for companies with a turnover of up to $50m.

Senator Hanson issued a new set of complex demands for the government to regain her support, including the provision of greater assistance for pensioners, lower power prices for consumers and greater efforts to crack down on multinational tax avoidance. One Nation’s demands also include an overhaul of the PRRT, the introduction of a “use it or lose it policy” for gas reserves off the West Australian coast and the new gas pipeline from the west to the east coast.

“There has to be a decent PRRT,” she said. “We need a pipeline from the west coast to the east coast. Unless we get electricity prices down in this country, we are going to see the closure of a lot of businesses.”

The Australian can reveal the full details of the now-defunct ­secret deal One Nation struck with the government in March to support the company tax cuts, which went well beyond the introduction of the 1000-place apprenticeship pilot scheme.

In a bid to address the GST shortfall for Western Australia, “floating LNG plants” would be forced to supply 15 per cent of their gas to the state under its domestic gas reservation policy or pay the equivalent to the state as a form of royalty. Under the defunct agreement, the government had also agreed to apply a “use it or lose it” policy off the WA coast in a shake-up to the retention lease system, which allows LNG companies to sit on reserves that could be developed sooner by rival companies.

Retention leases are up for renewal every five years and provide security of title for resources that are likely to become commercially viable within 15 years.

The shake-up would have ­allowed leases to be renewed only if companies moved into development within a year, otherwise they would be returned to the market to drive greater competition.

Senator Hanson had also ­negotiated a tightening of tax ­deductions under the PRRT for exploration costs which major companies can bring forward to offset against future income — a move that would have returned $6bn over the forward estimates to the government’s coffers. The PRRT allows exploration costs as a deduction to be taken forward at an “uplift rate” as an ­offset against future income. The uplift factor is the long-term bond rate plus 15 percentage points. Senator Hanson said this had handed several major companies billions of dollars in effective “tax credits”.

Under the deal, One Nation negotiated, the government agreed to reduce the uplift rate to the long-term bond rate plus 5 percentage points. Companies would need to claim the deductions within a 10-year period.

Senator Hanson’s new demands include action to reduce the migration intake, accusing the government of failing to listen to the Australian people. “Even the states are complaining about the immigration numbers, that they can’t provide the infrastructure,” she said.

She also called on the Prime Minister to “get the banks to pay for this royal commission into the banking sector”.
