Pauline Hanson called ‘scumbag’ for saying Greens senator Mehreen Faruqi ‘p*** off back to Pakistan’

Fiery moment Pauline Hanson is branded a ‘scumbag’ as she REFUSES to withdraw her comments telling Greens senator to ‘p*** off back to Pakistan’

Pauline Hanson has been called a ‘scumbag’ in the Senate for refusing to withdraw a tweet saying Greens senator Mehreen Faruqi should ‘p*** off back to Pakistan’.

Fellow Greens senator Jordon Steele-John shouted ‘you scumbag’ across the Senate chamber at the One Nation leader on Tuesday.

During a heated debate, Ms Hanson would not retract her comment, which followed a tweet from Ms Faruqi calling the Queen ‘a leader of a racist empire’ on the day of her death.

‘Condolences to those who knew the Queen. I cannot mourn the leader of a racist empire built on stolen lives, land and wealth of colonised peoples,’ Ms Faruqi posted.

More to come.
