FORMER One Nation leader, Pauline Hanson, has issued a warning to any Muslims or overseas Asians that may be looking to purchase her home: don’t even bother.
The controversial Ms Hanson, famed for her anti-immigration policies and mistrust of multiculturalism, made the statements in an interview with the Seven Network’s Sunrise this morning.
The 55-year-old gave the program a tour of her multi-million dollar home at Coleyville, southwest of Brisbane, which she is currently trying to sell and spoke candidly about her plans for the future.
But while her property is on the market, Ms Hanson made it clear not everyone was welcome to make an offer.
“I have no intentions of selling my home to a Muslim,” she told Sunrise.
“I don’t believe they are compatible with our way of life, our culture and I think we are going to have problems in this country further down the track.”
Ms Hanson said she would also not contemplate selling her home to “an Asian who lives in another country”.
“To an Australian who is of Asian background: no problems whatsoever,” she said.
The former MP also revealed she wants Tony Abbott to be the next Australian Prime Minister in the interview.
Ms Hanson is selling her property with plans to relocate indefinitely to Britain.
Her racial views come just days after it was revealed Ms Hanson was held by immigration officials in New Zealand on a recent hiking trip and asked to explain her jail time as “Australia’s first political prisoner”.
Ms Hanson has struggled to shake the spotlight and accusations of being a racist since entering federal parliament in 1996 with the warning “we are in danger of being swamped by Asians” that she delivered in her maiden speech.
During a television interview that same year, in which Ms Hanson was asked if she was xenophobic, she famously asked the journalist to “please explain”.
Last year, she made an unsuccessful tilt for the Queensland state seat of Beaudesert as an independent before revealing to Woman’s Day her plans to move overseas.
“I’ve really had enough,” Ms Hanson told the magazine last year.
“I want peace in my life. I want contentment, and that’s what I’m aiming for.
“It’s pretty much goodbye forever.”
