Pauline Hanson running in NSW election

God. Just when you thought it was safe to go out into public affairs in NSW - it is no longer.


Pauline Hansen is trying to come back.


Read the SMH article here
The ABC has run the story, but they made a fundamental mistake, saying she is running for the Upper House (which is correct), and say: "She is standing for the locality of Corlette on the state's north coast, and is running in the March 26 poll as part of a group of 16 independents." The NSW Upper House is based on State-wide voting, not with "Wards" or Zones or regions.


Ms Hansen is living in Corlette, but she cannot be "standing for the locality of Corlette". The ABC Radio News (Midnight News 8 March (9 March from 0001 hours) just carried the same wrong statement (read exactly from the same script). How stupid are they? I hope Media Watch tears them to shreds for that basic error.
Anyway, lets hope Pauline is rejected by the public, as she has been before.


But in view of the loose talk about the Tea Party on Q and A on Monday night, perhaps she will feed on that sentiment.


If so, God Help us All.

Hi Catmint
"Infecting" is the right word.
It is disgusting,
