http://www.theaustralian.com.au/nationa ... 005722f6cePauline Hanson insists her One Nation party could form government one day as she outlined her blueprint for Australia which would include forcing newlyweds to have pre-nuptial agreements and changes to the tax system.
“I haven’t started a political party to sit on the backbenches for ever and a day,” Senator Hanson told the Seven Netwok tonight as she arrived in Canberra for the start of the parliamentary year this week.
“I think there is a place, in the future, for One Nation on government benches.”
Asked about government MPs who laughed at that prospect, Senator Hanson replied: “The last laugh will be on them.”
Earlier today Coaliton MP Christopher Pyne burst into laughter when asked during a media conference in Adelaide what he thought about Senator Hanson’s outline for the country if she were to be the country’s leader.
“Leader of what?” Mr Pyne grinned. “I think it is unlikely that One Nation’s going to form a government in Australia.”
Senator Hanson’s blueprint for Australia includes a flat two per cent tax rate for everyone - even welfare recipients and has pre-nuptial agreements for newlyweds.
“Family law is high on my agenda. It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues,” she told the Sunday Mail.
The One Nation leader said under her vision for a “better Australia,” she would as Prime Minister, also cut the number of politicians, limit migration, introduce an Australian identity card, and axe the GST.
She would also set up a royal commission into Islam.
Senator Hanson said one of her priorities was changing the family law system to ease the burden on the courts. She would force couples into pre-nuptial agreements outlining how they would deal with their children and assets if a relationship broke down.
“Family law is high on my agenda. I just think it needs a complete overhaul,” she told the newspaper. “It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues. So before someone goes into a relationship or a marriage, you must have a premarital agreement. It would be confidential (and lodged with courts).
“We’ve got to free up our court system. It’s overloaded. A lot of judgments aren’t being handed down for years.”
She said the public saw her as the woman next door rather than a career politician.
“People see me as I could be their sister, their mother, their neighbour next door,’’ Senator Hanson said. “They don’t see me as a career politician ... They’ve seen me running a small business, rearing kids by myself. They see this person, I’ve had knockdowns, I’ve been in prison, I’ve come out of there and guess what? They haven’t beaten me, I’ve got up again. They can throw everything at me and I’ll still keep doing what I believe in.
“I don’t change my tune, whichever way the polls are going. If you look at what I said 20 years ago, it’s exactly what I’m saying today. I’m a type of person who can make a decision. The past makes you more aware of what not to do in the future.”
Maybe you like to debate political issues or would like to vent your frustration at some issue in Australia or around the world, then this is the forum for all this sort of thing.

Senator Hanson’s blueprint for Australia includes:
- a flat two per cent tax rate for everyone - even welfare recipients
(TIC, sounds good, tax is so high in this country and this sounds like a dream)
- pre-nuptial agreements for newlyweds.
(TIC, sounds like a great idea as many people do not make agreements in the passion and lust of a new relationship and are scared to discuss it with their partner)
- cut the number of politicians
(TIC, a BIG YES as most do nothing but wipe their bums with our money
- limit migration
(TIC, A HUGE GIGANTIC YES YES YES)
- introduce an Australian identity card
(TIC, could be a great idea if it helps us clean up the millions of illegal visitors and immigrants here)
- axe the GST.
(TIC, A BIG YES, this makes running a small business a headache more than anything and consumers pay so much more.
- set up a royal commission into Islam
(TIC, YES, this is overdue)
