One Nation leader Pauline Hanson says she has mixed feelings about coral bleaching, after taking her senators to a healthy part of the Great Barrier Reef in an effort to disprove claims the icon is dying.
“What is so wrong with being white?” she asked.
“I will not be made to feel guilty for being white, or having white kids, or having white coral”
Ms Hanson was presented was “indisputable’ evidence that the reef is not dying, after throwing on a wetsuit and snorkel gear for her swim off Great Keppel Island on Friday, over 1000 kilometres away when she took aim at green groups for telling “untruths” about the reef’s health.
“What we have here is a small minority of whingeing healthy coral dictating how the rest of us should act”
“The coloured coral communities should focus on assimilating with the white communities as well”
Australia is relying on its Reef 2050 Plan to convince the UN agency to keep the Great Barrier Reef off its list of World Heritage sites in danger.
Former Senator Malcolm Roberts said Australia should not be reporting on the reef to any of the United Nation’s agencies, as they have a history of presenting “fabricated” information, a bit like his birth certificate.
