 The idiot senator is always good for a laugh

16.04.19. You can always count on Ms Hanson-Young to say something really stupid, the sort of nonsense we heard from her in a senate inquiry when she thought the TV show, “Sea Patrol” was actually the Australian Navy at work. How can you take a fool like that that passes legislation for all Australians seriously? It says little good for the nation’s senate. In a few weeks South Australians have the chance to rectify their mistake that has covered them with shame for so long. Or will they will they make a mockery of Australian politics again? However, and true to form she told Pauline Hanson to, “Go back to where you come from!”
But Ms Hanson-Young on Monday sounded out a warning following One Nation’s presence in the state, calling out its “toxic politics”.
She labelled One Nation’s push to build a new coal-fired power plant in South Australia as “ludicrous”.Source: ABCSarah Hanson-Young warns of One Nation’s ‘toxic politics’ as Pauline Hanson visits regional SAOne Nation leader Pauline Hanson is touring regional South Australia this week to promote two local candidates, prompting a warning from Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young for voters to be aware of her “toxic politics”.
Ms Hanson hit the streets of Murray Bridge and Loxton on Sunday morning, where she touted her idea for a new coal-fired power plant for the state as a way to boost jobs and reduce power bills.
During five days touring the region she said she was confident of her party’s chances in the state this time around.
“In the 2016 election we narrowly missed out on the last seat,” Ms Hanson said.
“South Australians feel they’ve been forgotten about.”
The party is hopeful of picking up a South Australian seat in the upcoming federal election with lead Senate candidate Jennifer Game.
A tax officer for 20 years, Ms Game said she wanted jobs in regional SA and multi-national tax reform on the national agenda.
She also said the media had exaggerated the threat of climate change and she was supportive of Pauline Hanson’s calls for a new coal-fired power station in South Australia.
“I am very supportive of a -efficiency, low-emission coal-fire power station being built here in South Australia,” Ms Game said.
“It will bring reliability to the grid, which we don’t have. It will lower power prices and it will allow our desalination plant to run 24 hours a day.”
‘Go back to where you came from’
But Ms Hanson-Young on Monday sounded out a warning following One Nation’s presence in the state, calling out its “toxic politics”.
She labelled One Nation’s push to build a new coal-fired power plant in South Australia as “ludicrous”.
Ms Hanson-Young is seeking re-election next month, and said job-creation in South Australia should be in renewable energy.
“My message to Pauline today is go back to where you came from, we don’t need your toxic politics and your climate change scepticism and denialism in our state,” she said.
“A coal-fired power station in our state is just ludicrous.”
But the Greens are taking One Nation’s presence in South Australia seriously, conceding it will be a proper contest and there would be a real chance they could lose their spot in the Senate to Pauline Hanson’s party.

“This is going to be a really tight Senate race. If the Greens lose our Senate seat here in South Australia, it may very well fall to One Nation,” Ms Hanson-Young said.
“So if you want to stop the toxic politics of Pauline Hanson and One Nation, if you want to stop coal being the answer to energy production, if you want to see investment in renewables, you’re going to have to vote Green in the Senate.
“I implore all South Australians, don’t be complacent here. This woman with her toxic politics and her party’s toxic politics needs to be stopped at the border.”
One Nation is also fielding a Lower House candidate in the seat of Grey, covering 92 per cent of the state.
‘I’d be surprised if they did succeed’
Adelaide University politics professor Carol Johnson said she was surprised the One Nation leader was spending so much time in South Australia.
“They may be hoping they can pick up the final Senate seat, perhaps that they will get some of the votes that previously went to Family First,” she said.
“Given that there vote is going down nationally, I’m a bit surprised she’s spending so long here … I’d have thought she might have been prioritising some of her home territory a bit more.
“I’d be surprised if they did succeed in winning a Senate seat in South Australia.”
While not confident for One Nation, Professor Johnson did admit the Greens would also be under some pressure.
“The Greens are in a difficult position because they are often being squashed by the Centre Alliance as well,” she said.
“But I’d certainly have thought that they would be ahead of One Nation.”

      Looking in the mirror?

    The Greens losing their Senate seat in SA would be sweet, but losing it to One Nation would be icing on the cake. Very thick icing. With hundreds and thousands on top. And choc chips.

    I think Hanson-Young should be looking at the policies of her party, the Greens, then she would see pages of toxic, marxist policies.
    Talk about dumb and dumber.

    Greens are Toxic, SHY is the dumbest person to ever be elected. Who cares who takes her out as long as she is defeated. Laughable she calls Pauline Toxic .pot calling, kettle black. We need PHON to stay on track for coal fired power, the Liberals are wishy washy on the subject. Labor and stupidity will not go there as they appease their Green masters

    Did she repay the expenses that were found to be illegitimate before preparing to be a candidate again?

    Last time I read about it her repayments were long overdue. I trust that this will not be another politician getting away with whatever.

    The offer of cheap energy via coal will increase in its popularity despite the Greens and the Globalist MSM. It might take time and a few more blackouts in SA first. Hopefully the election will see the political demise of SHY, and more ascendancy for PHON.

    That silly woman deserves all the ridicule that goes her way but even more deserving are the voters who have kept her there for so long.

    I so want to see that moronic fool, Hanson-Young, get booted out. How she’s ever been elected is a complete mystery to me. She is a fanatic, a zealot, a vicious hater and a traitor to this country. In other words, she’s a “Green” which is simply an old style communist with a new paint job.

      JR: All watermelons are red inside, to the core.

  • Graham 16/04/2019, 1:59 pm

    I read that SHY was likely to lose her seat in this election; I’m keeping everything crossed!
