After releasing a video of One Nation Senate hopeful Steve Dickson in a strip club, footage which led him to withdraw his bid for the Senate, Al Jazeera may have gotten too clever by half when they threatened to release an embarrassing video of Pauline Hanson. Unbeknownst to the foreign journalism company, no footage could be more embarrassing than Pauline just opening her mouth.
Claiming their footage would stun Australian viewers and lead them not to vote for Pauline, further misunderstands the One Nation Party as hardly anyone votes for them anyway.
“Had it of been footage of anyone else making a goose of themselves, it would definitely have an impact. But this is Pauline we’re talking about. The stuttering, the shaking, not understanding words above a grade nine English level – I mean, what do they think could possibly top that?” asked political correspondent, Will Vote (37).
According to an ABC news report, there is real concern amongst Labor and Liberal closed-door meetings that the video could in fact help Pauline garner more votes.
When asked about an embarrassing video, the One Nation Party leader made this remark, “Please explain?” asked a dumbfounded Pauline.
“Let’s face it, the video couldn’t be anything worse than what we’ve seen, which then begs the question, ‘Could it actually be better?’” pondered Will.
At present, the damning footage remains a mere threat and only time will tell if it will be released. One thing is for sure, if Pauline is interviewed today, there will definitely be more embarrassing footage for One Nation on its way.
