Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is giving the Australian people a say about a Royal Commission into the management of the COVID-19 pandemic by Australian governments.
Party leader Senator Pauline Hanson said while she welcomed Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s commitment to a pandemic Royal Commission examining the role of all Australian governments, it was important to get the inquiry underway as soon as possible.
“While the Prime Minister may be prepared to wait and kick this can down the road, One Nation is not,” Senator Hanson said. “Another pandemic could hit us at any moment. This is much more important than Robodebt or Scott Morrison’s secret ministries
“Senator Malcolm Roberts has been working with me on developing draft terms of reference for the Royal Commission. We want to make sure these terms of reference capture all of the information which Australians need to see – the deliberations of National Cabinet, the advice from health bureaucrats which state and territory governments used to justify lockdowns and vaccine mandates, and the real data on COVID-19 deaths.
“We’ve posted these draft terms of reference on the One Nation website and we’re now asking for input from the Australian people. It’s absolutely essential this Royal Commission enables individual Australians to tell their stories of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Thousands of Australians lost their jobs due to lockdowns and mandates. Our children’s education was severely interrupted. Businesses across Australia suffered significant losses or closed altogether. Australian governments spent hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in pandemic relief. Experimental vaccines were rushed through approvals and imposed on millions of Australians. This has been one of the most disruptive events in our history.”
