One Nation defies polls, celebrates return to form

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party was celebrating a return to form as the party defied polls pointing to declining support and emerged from the election with a chance of increased Senate representation.

While One Nation had not secured any lower house seats at last count, the party commanded impressive support of between 13 and 22 percent in Queensland electorates such as Dawson, Capricornia, Flynn, Blair, Maranoa, Hinkler, Wright, Longman, Groom and the seats of Hunter and Paterson in New South Wales.

With the count in the House of Representatives still continuing Monday, One Nation had notched 3% of the national vote. This represents a more than doubling of One Nation’s vote in the 2016 Federal Election (1.29%) which saw the party burst back onto the political scene.

Although commentators highlight that Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party achieved a similar figure by standing 151 candidates across the country, this comparison doesn’t account for the fact that One Nation stood candidates in only 59 of the 151 House of Representatives divisions.

As of late Monday with 75% of the vote counted, One Nation had achieved an average 7.8% of the vote in areas it stood candidates.

Counting for the Senate is expected to continue for a number of weeks. The party’s best chance at increased representation is Malcolm Roberts for Queensland Senate who sits on 9.8% of the vote with just over 40% of Senate ballot papers counted. This places the party in a very strong position but fighting a scattered field of preference flows to achieve the 14.3% needed to secure Mr. Roberts’ return to Parliament.

ELECTION UPDATEThe focus of the vote counting is still in the Lower House to confirm whether the LNP will form a…

New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia Senate races continue with One Nation in smaller primary positions and having to rely on very large preference flows in the coming weeks’ counting to secure more seats.

The hope of increased One Nation Senate representation comes even in spite of a much harder, non-double dissolution election.

This year’s half-Senate election (where the quota for a Senate position has increased from 7.7%(2016) to 14.3%(2019)) has wiped out minor parties such as Fraser Anning’s Conservative Nationals, United Australia Party and Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party. Cory Bernardi’s Australian Conservative’s have been unable to secure additional Senate positions.

Only time will tell the exact results in the Senate and while the party won’t be, “doing a Bill Shorten,” and counting its chickens before they hatch, it thanks all of its supporters, candidates and tireless volunteers that have helped increase the vote across the country in a resounding success.

The result shows Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is here to stay as a driving force in Australia politics and getting the country back on track.

Senate Says: Not Okay To Be White

This week Pauline Hanson moved this motion in the Senate:

You can watch her accompanying speech and the ridiculous response from Derryn Hinch and the Greens below:

Labor, Greens, Hinch and Xenophon Team vote "it's not ok to be white".

PROOF IT’S NOT OK TO BE WHITE ACCORDING TO THE AUSTRALIAN SENATE.Labor, the Greens, Derryn Hinch, the Xenophon team and Tim Storer all voted, it’s not ok to be white. Amazing!Talk about white guilt.#Auspol #OneNation #Proof #PaulineHanson

While the Government initially supported the bill, in an extraordinary backflip they lost their spine with Prime Minister Scott Morrison saying he regrets that government senators voted in favour of the motion that asked the Senate to acknowledge “it’s OK to be white”.

In an unforeseen backflip by the Government, both Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Senate leader, Mathias Cormann have…

However, this turned out to be a Captain’s call from the top, with Coalition politicians who publicly said they supported the motion being forced to tow the party line and re-neg on their support. (Skip to 3:05 to see the quote from Luke Howarth MP).

Liberals backflip on Pauline Hanson's 'It's ok to be white' motion, but some LNP Members refuse

While the Liberal Party backflipped on their support for Pauline Hanson's notice of motion in the Senate, some LNP members have publicly said she is right and gone against the official party line.A real win for One Nation and Pauline Hanson this week.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #LukeHowath #GeorgeChristensen #Petrie #Backflip

As the second vote happened, where the Coalition crumbled under political correctness and changed their vote to join with the Labor and Greens, One Nation held our own press conference which was live-streamed so all of the information was available direct to the public instead of through the biased media.

You can watch the full live stream below and listen to how journalists try to twist Pauline’s words into something they are not. You’ll notice that even though Pauline said that it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white or brindle as long as you’re Australian multiple times, this was never reported in the media and One Nation was labelled racist.

IT IS OKAY TO BE WHITE PRESS CONFERENCE

The vote on this motion only confirms what we have suspected for far too long. Australian politics under the two major parties is suffocated by huge political correctness and white guilt. How can any of these politicians do their job of building this country if they can’t acknowledge a simple phrase without causing a circus?
