Quotes Attributable to Tania Mihailuk MP, Member for Bankstown
“Chris Minns as Premier and a Labor Government will see NSW go both woke and broke. I know the true agenda of the people sitting currently sitting on Chris Minns’ front bench - they are form the extreme left. We simply cannot afford to have Labor controlling both Chambers of Parliament.
“I am seeking preselection as a One Nation candidate in Mark Latham’s team because the Labor Party has sadly lost its way to the left wing extremists and property developer mafia that have taken over Labor like a cancer with their woke views and political donations.
“One Nation isn’t afraid to focus on the issues that matter to families. An education system that focuses on the basics that matter to mums and dads: literacy, numeracy, history and the humanities – actual common sense skills that lead to jobs rather than left wing indoctrination.
“There are prominent Labor Shadow Ministers that want drug legalization and gender fluidity teaching in schools. I totally oppose these policies and will do everything that I can to stop their agenda from passing the Upper House.
“One Nation is the only party that will focus on addressing the cost of living crisis and rising energy bills caused by an unnecessary scare campaign against coal and nuclear energy. NSW is rich in natural resources, but Labor wants to ban coal and forestry and this will send electricity prices and the cost of building materials to record highs.
“I am a strong believer in freedom of religion and the right to express your faith. South West Sydney communities like those in Bankstown have the highest observance in faith, be it Christianity, Buddhism or Islam, but freedom of religion is a toxic notion to the inner-west left wing hipsters that set Labor Party agenda on social policy.
