Pauline Hanson’s Explosive Attack on Anthony Albanese’s ‘Voice to Parliament’
One Nation’s Pauline Hanson gives speech as part of Voice to Parliament ‘Vote No’ campaign
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has unloaded on The Voice to Parliament in her most savage attack yet – comparing Aboriginal Stolen Generations to convicts shipped from Britain to Australia.
Ms Hanson gave a speech at the Adelaide Convention Center on June 23, parts of which were shared this week on the Vote No campaign TikTok page where it has garnered tens of thousands of views.
A referendum to be held between October and December this year – the date has yet to be announced – will ask Australians to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether to incorporate an Aboriginal advisory body into parliament in the constitution.
Senator Hanson told the crowd, ‘What about the stolen generation of convicts who were forcibly deported or the children who were taken from England during World War II?’
“People have faced atrocities for years but this guilt trip must stop if we are to be strong and united”.

Senator Hanson then took aim at Senate colleague Lydia Thorpe before arguing that a No vote was not just a vote for the status quo but a vote for unity.
‘I have Senator Thorpe next to me in Parliament, what an abomination he is, all I see (from him) is this hate and division instead of trying to bring people together.’
‘This shouldn’t be about Australia.’
‘And as they (Indigenous Australians) are not recognized, we now have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags flying in Parliament.’
‘We’ve never had it, we’ve never been asked as a country to accept it.’
‘Welcome to the country’s message every morning, it used to be prayed and they’ve reversed it.’
Senator Hanson said, ‘When I’m in Parliament and that happens I turn my back.
Viewers of the video commented that they agreed with Senator Hanson’s comments.
“Pauline Yu said well, well because it shouldn’t be one-sided, we’re all disadvantaged and suffering but we need to unite as one Australia”.
‘I don’t remember the last time I heard of an advance fair in Australia. I have represented our country in sports and am very proud of it yet if I sing it it gets frowned upon,’ said another.
‘Why can’t she run the country…Palin would do a great job,’ said a third.
An official pamphlet released by the Australian Electoral Commission on Tuesday outlined the cases for the Yes and No camps.
The Yes and No camps in the Voice referendum have unveiled their pitches to the Australian public ahead of a split vote later this year, but key details are still unclear.
Both parties released their campaign leaflets published by the Australian Electoral Commission on Tuesday which will be posted at homes across the country.
Senator Thorpe is the face of the Black Sovereignty movement which argues that the idea of a voice in Parliament is tokenistic and instead wants a deal with Aboriginal people.
Senator Lydia Thorpe condemned both the Yes and No campaigns, she is part of the Black Sovereignty movement which wants a deal.
Senator Thorpe said this week that the No Vote pamphlets were misleading and ‘brave racists’.
But he condemned the Yes campaign as ‘a smokescreen to cover up the continuing violent process of colonialism’.
“They provide no historical evidence that an advisory body would have an impact, fail to acknowledge that there have been many ineffective advisory bodies in the past, and present a model of advisory bodies that is not contested or agreed upon by First Nations peoples,” he said in a statement.
