22.05.20. One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has called for affected Queensland businesses to join her to “start proceedings against the state government” labelling the Premier’s border closures “unconstitutional”. It comes as Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk deferred to her Chief Medical Officer Dr Jeannette Young when justifying why her state may not reopen its borders until September Ms Hanson told Sky News host Paul Murray she has sought advice as to the legality under Section 92 of the Australian Constitution of Queensland’s harsh border closures. The Constitution recognises “trade, commerce, and intercourse among the states, whether by means of internal carriage or ocean navigation, shall be absolutely free”. Ms Hanson said the decision made by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was a “political move”. “When I see my state in dire straits, you’ve got communities that are dying, and we need the tourists from down south … (so) I want to take her on”.
