Pauline Hanson’s policies threaten the prosperity of her support base

John Harrison comments in the Brisbane Times (12.7.16) on what the policies of Pauline Hanson and the One Nation Party would likely mean for the national economy.

‘Pauline Hanson’s pronouncements pose a direct threat to the livelihoods of those who voted for her. Much of the commentary has been about the threat to social cohesion represented by the resurgence of Hansonism.

‘But there is an economic threat also, and those most likely to be damaged by a poorer national economic performance are precisely the disaffected who voted for Hanson.

‘From their rhetoric this week, both major parties recognise this. As did Standard and Poors.’
