 Hanson will support government on Medivac

02.12.19. 7:30am. Joe Kelly, News Corp
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson says she has given Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton a “guarantee” she will support the government’s Medivac repeal bill despite voting down the Coalition’s industrial relations legislation last week.
“I have given him my guarantee that I will back it. He knows my word is my bond,”Senator Hanson said.
However, Senator Hanson said that she would not flag in advance how she would vote on other key measures before the parliament.
“I don’t intend to tell them how I’m going to vote on anything in future,” she said.
The government needs to win over the support of Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie to win support for its Medivac repeal. Returning to Canberra for the final sitting week of the year, Senator Lambie said she was looking forward to “really getting our teeth into it.”
The Australian has revealed this morning that more than 20 refugees approved for relocation in the US had been transferred to Australia under the medivac regime, fuelling concerns the laws were undermining third country resettlement efforts

    The Senate needs reform, speaking generally there’s too much arrogance from the members of that House.

    The Government cannot function while a separate house is controlled by the personal likes and dislikes of its members.

    Members of this House should be completely impartial, but they are not.

    How can anyone be sure of Pauline’s “word” now. Still she had better partially redeem herself after her really bad judgement in supporting the left wing Trade Union bosses. Temper! temper!

    If Hanson does an about face on this bill, she’s finished. Nobody inside or outside of Parliament will trust her again.

    Most interesting how the MSM and the GayBC skew things to meet their agendas regarding Pauline Hanson or anyone who is not in lockstep with the rabid leftards. They do not allow facts to get in the way of a good beatup whenever Pauline Hanson is involved. Given Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is continuing to increase their primary vote in Australia, and particularly in Queensland, it comes as no surprise to me there are ongoing fake news being put out by the MSM and the GayBC either by outright lies or by omission.

    This is what Pauline Hanson said about the recent Ensuring Integrity Bill vote and the reasons why. Also, there was no ‘agreement’ in place with the LNP to pass this bill.

    The Tart from Tasmania rules! What a sad State of Affairs! We have to rely on the vote of a demented banshee to repeal an Act that should never have become Law!
