LETTER: Hanson will keep Senate honest

THANK you Adam Davies (QT, Thursday) for recognising that there are more than two parties in this election and Pauline Hanson has as much right to be heard as any of the other candidates.

I am not a One Nation member but I will be voting for her in the Senate.

It took a few brave Senators to stop the Abbott/Turnbull plunder and some of them have lost their jobs as a result.

We need voices of dissent and do not need a rubber-stamp Senate.

We have had enough of the big two ganging up on small parties.

MARY DAVIES Grandchester

Editor's note - Thank you Ms Davies for your letter.

The intrepid Adam Davies told his colleagues he anticipated his column would be well read, particularly by his family members!

We do know you are not related though!

Adam will have a regular column in the QT each week which we hope keeps you informed, entertained and engaged. Strap yourself in, because he is set to tackle the big issues with no holding back.
