After Senator Pauline Hanson demanded a stop to Muslim immigration after Sunday’s attack in London, Ita Buttrose has stepped in with support.
Talking on Studio 10 yesterday Buttrose said the controversial comments from the One Nation leader were what others were thinking.
“I have a feeling Pauline Hanson is saying what a lot of people are thinking,” Ita Buttrose said.
And after listening to Theresa May saying enough is enough, Buttrose went on to say “What is enough? I don’t think it is being political… but I think people are starting think ‘well, how are we going to fight this?’.”
Jessica Rowe replied to Buttrose, saying her thoughts were that Hansons’ comments were vile and she got it very wrong. “I think at time like this to be divisive is not remotely useful…. To say not have any immigration here is appalling.”
Rowe is not the only once to say she got it wrong.
The Federal Opposition Leader said it was disgusting that she was trying to stoke a debate about immigration within hours of the London attack.
Yesterday Hanson continued her controversial comments, demanding wider police powers after the Melbourne siege event overnight, that has been linked to terror.
