It's getting mercifully close to a dead issue, but the Sydney Morning Herald have an opinion piece on Pauline Hanson's media coverage as it may/may not have related to her rise to notoriety: They voted for her - but it's hard to agree why. It's hardly surprising that someone sitting Sydney has missed a critical factor in Hanson's career - Ipswich has serious problems with racial tension and "reverse discrimination". A ratbag minority cause huge problems for the rest of the community - both Aboriginal and European. Yes, Hanson is a raging xenophobic racist fool; but that doesn't mean there weren't any real problems in her electorate. Unfortunately her actions rammed them straight back onto the "too hot to mention" pile; so the problems just keep simmering.
