Correct me if I’m wrong here folks, but isn’t Pauline Hanson one of the most wrong headed and hated woman in Australian politics? So, if the Greens get less votes than Pauline, what does that say about public acceptance of the Watermelons? The Telegraph reports-
PAULINE Hanson was in line for a shock win in the NSW Upper House last night. After being written off after early counting on Saturday, the former One Nation Party leader crept ahead of a Greens candidate yesterday.
The first votes counted in the Upper House were from Sydney and metropolitan areas but Ms Hanson has performed better in votes that were counted yesterday in rural NSW. Ms Hanson, who has moved to a coastal town north of Newcastle, was last night ahead of third Greens candidate Jeremy Buckingham.
She reached a quota in the counting of 0.41, slightly ahead of Mr Buckingham’s 0.398. Labor’s sixth candidate, Andrew Ferguson last night slipped behind them both to 0.34. The Greens were a slim hope of winning the final spot last night if they benefit from any Labor preferences.
