Senator Pauline Hanson to Make Major Announcement

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson will tomorrow announce a game changing move in the next Queensland State election.

The Queensland Senator has been working her way across regional Queensland this week, in an effort to ensure people living outside of the South East corner have a voice.

Senator Hanson said “I can’t fix this country and the state of Queensland on my own, so tomorrow I’m wheeling out plans to bolster my troops, ready for the State election”.

“I’ve visited Marlborough to hear farmers concerns over potential compulsory land acquisition for the Singaporean Army, visited Mayors in Yeppoon and Townsville and with numerous victims and community groups to discuss the increased crime wave throughout North Queensland.”

Cane growers throughout the Burdekin met for a second time in two months, desperate for Government intervention after cane processing negotiations with Wilmar broke down prior to Christmas.

“Growers feel let down by parties they’ve supported all of their lives and they’re over it. They’ve asked for Agricultural Minister Barnaby Joyce to intervene, however those calls fell on deaf ears.”

“I sat before two, lifelong farmers, who have placed everything on the line for their families and their story is tragic. Up to 90% of farmers in the Burdekin are being dictated to by foreign owned mills and the Government doesn’t understand why this is a problem. When will Governments learn that foreign control in our food, electricity, water and major infrastructure supply has consequences for all Australians?”

This morning, Charters Towers farmers met with the Senator for a second time in consecutive months, disgusted at the lack of consultation from Defence, over potential compulsory land acquisition for the Singaporean army. Ms Hanson will take their concerns to a meeting next Tuesday with Defence Minister Maurice Payne and offer alternative sites for the Government to consider.

Ms Hanson will reveal a Queensland shake up in politics tomorrow morning at 11am.

“Get set Queensland. Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is in this next state election to win Government”.
