Pauline Hanson votes to be counted: the anxious expectation of a nation


Pauline Hanson's One Nation truck in Tasmania was lit during the federal elections.

"It is amazing how the left is asking for tolerance, but it acts as if they were above the law when there is no agreement with their ideologies," said Hanson.

The truck was parked outside a store while a nation's candidate was buying groceries. "Someone was seen burning it before fleeing," said Mrs. Hanson. However, the Tasmanian police could not confirm any request for an eyewitness account.

"We are treating the fire as suspect but we have nothing else to say at this point," a police spokesman told

The truck, led by United Nations Senate candidate Adam Lambert, was set on fire while Mr. Lambert was in the mall buying food, The Mercury reported.

Yesterday the cardboard cutouts of the leader of the One Nation remained in place at the polling stations in Queensland.

After months of campaigning, Pauline Hanson went to the bottom. He wasn't seen anywhere until he raised his head for a message to the supporters who said thank you and very little else.

On Facebook, it seemed positive for a result that will provide a coalition government, but cautious about what it means for its own party.

One nation and Clive Palmer's United Australia party raised enough votes to help the Coalition maintain power through their preferences, but Ms. Hanson's party got only three percent of the primary vote, and Palmer seems to lose. every place.

"Thanks to everyone who showed their support to our One Nation team yesterday," he wrote.

"While the results in the lower house have determined a liberal / national government, they have not yet finalized the Senate vote.

"We will not have those results for another week or two, but it seems very likely that Malcolm Roberts will return to the Senate in Queensland.

"It is difficult to know exactly where we are sitting in all the other states across the country, but I am also confident that Peter Georgiou has returned to Western Australia.

"Patience is the key to the Senate counting process, but time will tell."

He told supporters that he will spend the rest of the weekend "in the garden" rather than actively watching the count.

One candidate who did not mention was Stuart Bonds who, according to The Guardian, had secured a massive 20% swing at Hunter's New South Wales site.

Mr Bonds, who in the article was described as "tattooed, often without a shirt", had obtained 21.8% of the main vote with 50% counted last night.

The current Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon is still held at the polling station.

Mrs. Hanson is also right about Mr. Roberts returning to the Senate. After being ousted in a saga of dual citizenship last year, only to be replaced by Fraser Anning who defected an hour after being sworn in.

But this is the extension of what we know so far.

Ms. Hanson's campaign for the party was marked by scandals. An Al Jazeera survey that was based on secret video recordings by Queensland leader One Nation, Steve Dickson and chief of staff James Ashby, seemed to show the couple trying to solicit money to overthrow Australian arms laws.

Ms Hanson strenuously denies that the video shows the couple targeting the powerful National Rifle Association.

"They weren't talking to the NRA," he told reporters last month. "He was an Al Jazeera reporter. Sorry. You're wrong," he said.

But he could not deny the rest of the footage, which included Dickson, 56, who was groping for exotic dancers and making racist comments.

In the video broadcast by A current affair last night, the 56-year-old married said at one point: "I did more Asians than I know what to do."

Speaking to journalists at her home, Ms. Hanson said she was "shocked and disappointed by the vision I was forced to watch."

"I am a mother of three children and the only female leader of a political party in this country. I would not tolerate my children behaving this way towards women," said Mrs. Hanson.

Ms Hanson was confrontational when interviewed by Today shows last week on the primary vote of his collapsing party.

The hostess Deb Knight told her that voters should not be accused of having left her.

"In light of all the things you have faced, all the scandals, all the things that have happened, can you really blame people for having doubts about One Nation and considering Clive (Palmer) about you?" Knight asked.

Ms. Hanson fired back, telling the new guest that she should consider her popularity.

"Actually I went up from the last election, unlike your show, Deb, since you actually took control. You actually went down in your audience," said Ms. Hanson.

"So, should you deliver your work or should we bring Karl back? Should we bring Karl back? Give me this on all this time."
