Hanson falls at final hurdle.
One Nation founder Pauline Hanson has failed in her bid to win a seat in the New South Wales Upper House.

Ms Hanson's loss was confirmed this morning after the distribution of preferences by computer, more than a fortnight after the state election.

(snip)

Labor holds 14 seats, the Greens five, while the Christian Democrats and Shooters and Fishers party have two seats each.

The Government will have to seek the support of the cross bench to pass legislation if Labor and the Greens combine to oppose it.

Praise be! She had 2% of the primary vote. Perhaps now she will finally go away.

3. Their platform is that they should be able to
shoot everything all the time and strip the waterways of every living thing.
At least that's the way they come across.
Knuckledraggers.
