Fired-up Pauline Hanson moves to BAN vaccine mandates to stop a ‘pandemic of discrimination’ as she calls the PM ‘weak’ and asks: ‘What is the country coming to?’
Pauline Hanson has moved a bill to ban Covid-19 vaccine mandates with a passionate speech in the Senate.
‘People have a right to chose whether they want to have this vaccination or not,’ she said.
‘What is the country coming to? If you allows the premiers to have these powers what will be next? ‘This could lead to anything.’

The Federal Government insists the Covid vaccine is optional but state and territory governments as well as private companies have enforced vaccine mandates, requiring jabs for activities like going to work, the pub or the shops.
One Nation leader Senator Hanson – who is unvaccinated – has introduced a bill to over-ride the states and ban all vaccine discrimination.
Her bill is supported by Coalition Senator Matt Canavan, but will be opposed by the Government, Labor and the Greens.
In her passionate speech introducing the bill on Monday morning, Senator Hanson called Mr Morrison ‘weak’.
‘The Prime minister is weak, he says there should be no vaccine mandates then do something about it,’ she said.
Senator Hanson also defended protesters, saying: ‘They’re not idiots, they’re not ratbags, they’re everyday Australians. They’re not extremists.’
