Pauline Hanson launches One Nation’s federal election campaign with a cheeky rhyme mocking both Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese
- Pauline Hanson mocks Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese in campaign
- One Nation leader led racial interview with former Lib Cory Bernardi on Sky
- She ripped Clive Palmer over remarks he’d prioritise Greens in election
Pauline Hanson has mocked both prime ministerial candidates with a South Park-like cartoon claiming neither ‘really care about you’.
The One Nation leader addressed the calling of the election on May 21 with the graphic through her social media channels on Sunday afternoon, mocking incumbent Scott Morrison and challenger Anthony Albanese.
‘Labor is red and Liberal is blue… neither of them really care about you,’ words around the cartoon caricatures of the pair read.
Senator Hanson added in the caption: ‘If you are ever in doubt about how the majors really feel about you just remember this helpful little rhyme.
‘Neither of them really care about you.’

Senator Hanson also shared a video in the lead up to the announcement of the election being called, responding to statements from Clive Palmer that he would prioritise the Greens over Liberal and Labor.
‘I’d put the Greens ahead, because they haven’t been in government and they’re not responsible for this debt,’ the United Australia Party leader said.
‘I could not believe it,’ Senator Hanson responded. ‘The people who work for UAP would be absolutely furious over these comments.
‘I can’t believe it. Don’t do it Clive. The Greens will destroy the farming sector in Australia and open up the flood gates for further immigration.’
She claimed it would harm Australia with an influx of refugees taking Australians’ job and said they are a ‘real concern’.
‘They want to hand more land back to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people,’ Senator Hanson alleged.

Her argument underlined the anti-immigration platform she based her party on, saying as a result of their allowing of immigration they would be ‘last’ on her preferred parties.
Host Cory Bernardi, who himself left the Liberal party to lead his own right-wing platform, agreed with her sentiments, saying she was ‘fighting for the people’.
‘Should we teach the Liberals a lesson and get rid of them,’ he asked of his former party.
‘I’m representing the conversative people more now than they are,’ Ms Hanson replied.
‘They’ve been taken over by moderates and those to the left. I’m protecting Australian values, our culture and heritage.’
She said One Nation was important because it cared about ‘what’s best for the people’.
The upcoming federal election in May will make history – with a lot at stake for both Liberal and Labor
Senator Hanson also couldn’t miss an opportunity to flog her new range of gin, using the interview to promote the brand.
If Scott Morrison wins, he will be the first incumbent prime minister to win two elections in a row since John Howard in 2004.
It will smash the revolving door that saw Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull knocked off by their parties before being given a chance to run for re-election.
Defeat for Labor will be the party’s fourth successive loss and mean the ALP has won majority government only once in the past 10 elections.
A win for Anthony Albanese will mean five successive prime ministers have failed to be re-elected.
Mr Albanese will become the first Labor leader to win office from opposition since Mr Rudd in 2007.
Opinion polls are pointing to a Labor win but there is little chance of a uniform national swing to the opposition.
