One Nation Senator leaves One Nation on first day of job

One Nation Senator leaves One Nation on first day of job

Hanson says she also tried to get in touch but "those efforts fell on deaf ears" and she instead communicated via his brother, making it clear she felt it best if he stood aside to pave the way for the return of Roberts, who finally renounced his British citizenship late past year.

And with fears of a resurgent One Nation ahead of the Queensland election, it's worth recalling that within a year of 11 PHON members being elected in 1998 had left the party and One Nation was deregistered in Queensland by August 1999.

"I indicated to Harry Anning at the time, that given the work Malcolm Roberts had achieved.it would be in the federal party's and Australia's best interest for Malcolm Roberts to be returned to the Senate", she said.

Senator Hanson refused four of Senator Anning's new staff access to a party room meeting on Monday morning because of what she described as their "disloyalty", which led to Senator Anning walking out of the meeting.

Senator Hanson was then asked a follow-up question on how she felt about her candidate's business posting the inappropriate reference to domestic violence and whether she thought it appropriate one of her candidates owned such a business, but reiterated her need to see the content for herself.

The chamber now comprises 29 coalition senators, 26 Labor, nine Greens, three One Nation, three Nick Xenophon Team, as well as Jacqui Lambie, Lucy Gichuhi, Derryn Hinch, David Leyonhjelm, Cory Bernardi and Senator Anning.

Fraser Anning has sensationally quit One Nation before taking his place in the Senate, abandoning the party to sit as an independent.

His departure leaves One Nation with only three votes in the Upper House.

England manager encouraged by emergence of Loftus-Cheek and Winks
Last night he gave Joe Gomez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jack Cork and Tammy Abraham global debuts, in the 0-0 draw with Germany . Despite selling Nemanja Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah, the 21-year-old was loaned out to Crystal Palace for this season.

Hanson claims that she was unable to speak to Anning before the High Court kicked Roberts out, and had to negotiate through his brother. "Instead he chose to release scathing media releases demanding I pledge my support to him without even meeting or speaking to him", Hanson said.

He said Burston and Georgiou had told him Hanson demanded he not employ the staffers - he had said this was unacceptable.

She said before Roberts came under the citizenship cloud she had asked Anning to contest the state seat of Gladstone, but he dismissed the request on the grounds he and his wife were moving permanently to the US.

But on his first day in office, it was revealed Senator Anning would be parting ways with One Nation. "This was news to me", he said.

When Senator Hanson asked senators Burston and Georgiou to mediate with Senator Anning they were told he had made a decision to become an independent.

Anning says he discovered he was an independent on TV.

He was angry the anonymous staffer had been talking to then plain Mr Anning, a Queensland publican who gained just 17 votes personally in the 2016 election.

He had been aware of the tensions earlier but had been told by a One Nation senator at the weekend that all was well with Anning.
