Pauline Hanson chooses the UK as her father was British
16th February 2010: She campaigned for an end to immigration by Muslims to protect “Australian culture”. Now, she has told an Australian magazine ‘Women’s Day’ that she is leaving Australia for good, and is heading for the UK.
Pauline Hanson, controversial Australian politician who campaigned against Australian immigration, has apparently chosen the UK because her father was a British citizen before he emigrated to Australia from the UK in 1908. As such, she is free to emigrate to the UK without the usual immigration regulations.
Hanson was a Liberal Party candidate, but was disowned after she made anti-Aboriginal comments prior to the 1996 Federal Election.
Hanson, in her speech to the House of Representatives, had alleged Australian Aborigines received more benefits than non-Aboriginals. She had also alleged the ordinary Australians were being subjected to a type of “reverse racism”.
She had also called for multiculturalism to be abolished on the ground of being in danger of “being swamped by Asians”. Hanson had agreed she would be called a racist but had gone on to add if she could invite whom she wanted into her home, she should have the right to have a say in who came into the country. Hanson lost her seat in Parliament in 1998.
