Transcript of Pauline Hanson and Paul Keating

Pauline Hanson and
One Nation

I don't like it!
Pauline Hanson, 49, is the former leader of One Nation, an Australian political party with an anti-multiculturalism principle.
On the 10th of September 1996, Pauline Hanson delivered her maiden speech to the House of Representatives, where she expressed her views towards Aboriginal Australians who were being given benefits they did not deserve, how ‘one’s skin colour cannot determine whether someone is disadvantaged or not’ and that Australia was ‘in danger of being swamped by Asians’. It is this speech where she criticized the general idea of multiculturalism, saying ‘a truly multicultural country can never be strong or united’.

This speech, amongst her constant need of expressing her controversial ideas through public appearances, is one of the main reasons as to why Hanson is well-known to Australians today.
Political Career
Hanson’s political career began in 1994 where she was an independent local councilor in the City of Ipswich. She then joined the Liberal Party of Australia and was endorsed as the Liberal Party’s candidate for the House of Representatives in 1996.

In the lead up to the election, Hanson campaigned to abolish the special government assistance for Aborigines and was then disendorsed by the Liberal Party.

Hanson was still listed as the candidate of the Liberal Party when votes were cast. She was then elected to parliament but due to her disendorsement, she entered as an independent.
One Nation
One Nation is an Australian right-wing political party that was founded by Pauline Hanson on the 11th of April, 1997.

•Multiculturalism “One Nation intends to abolish multi-racialism and the Racial Discrimination Act 197 based on the UN Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial distribution as it in unconstitutional.

“One Nation would support a 5 year wait for new migrants to become Australian citizens.
One Nation also believes that in order for individuals to qualify to become an Australian, they must be able to assimilate to society in means of being able to communicate, that is speak English.
