The One Nation leader refuses to sack key staff over al-Jazeera documentary, denies questioning Port Arthur massacre

"Getting towards the end of the day, Hawke said to me, 'we're not getting anywhere, go out and tell media where we're up to'."

Mr Unsworth did so, telling journalists 'we can't get national agreement, quite frankly you are not going to get anywhere unless there is a shooting in some small place in Tasmania'. I said that because I had the Tasmanians in the front of my mind. That's all ... I went back inside and the whole thing wrapped up."

Mr Unsworth says he believed he lost the subsequent state election because of his gun laws, which were subsequently wound back.We can't get national agreement ... you are not going to get anywhere unless there is a shooting in some small place in Tasmania headtopics.com

Former NSW premier Barrie Unsworth in 1987Former senator and gun enthusiast David Leyonhjelm – now on the cusp of being elected to the NSW upper house – told theHeraldandThe Ageon Thursday there were "legitimate" questions about Port Arthur, though he denied being a conspiracy theorist himself.

"People say 'well what is there to know about Port Arthur'. Well there's actually a lot," he said. "The solution is let's have an inquiry and let some of them at least go away.Former senator David Leyonhjelm says there were"legitimate" questions about Port Arthur.

"There are people who say that people were killed with head shots which would require substantial marksmanship which [Martin] Bryant didn't have."There's several other questions that keep coming up. I think they deserve to be answered." headtopics.com

Tim Fischer, who was deputy prime minister when John Howard achieved a national ban on military-style weapons in 1996, told Sky News that he had a "deep-seated concern" that One Nation had engaged with the "deadly evil playbook of the NRA … and we have not seen much condemnation of those links from Pauline Hanson."

Mr Fischer said Ms Hanson should not have exonerated her staff before the airing of part two of the documentary on the ABC on Thursday night. However, Ms Hanson said the ABC was acting unethically in airing the program.Lesley Podesta, chief executive of the Alanah and Madeline Foundation which was founded by Walter Mikac in memory of his wife and daughters slaughtered at Port Arthur, said she was happy Ms Hanson "accepts reality now" in relation to the 1996 massacre.

But she added, "What did not ring true to me today whatsoever is that she [Hanson] said they stand for strong gun laws. That's not the case. They absolutely believe in undermining the national firearms agreement. Read more: The Sydney Morning Herald »

He obviously still hasn’t gotten over his final political defeat all these years later. A sad, bitter shell of a man.

‘I do not support the Port Arthur conspiracy theory’: Hanson | Sky News AustraliaOne Nation party leader Pauline Hanson has denied she supports the Port Arthur conspiracy theory, and says the convicted murderer Martin Bryant should have been given the death penalty. \n\nSenator Hanson says her comments about the 1996 atrocity in Tasmania, which left 35 people dead, referred simply to a book which suggests the massacre was a government inside job. \n\nThe senator says she thinks the video, secretly filmed by Al Jazeera, was dubbed and has called for the conversation to be released in its entirety. \n\nThe One Nation leader also slammed an Al Jazeera video showing party officials James Ashby and Steve Dickson allegedly requesting $20 million from the American gun lobby. \n\nShe has apologised to the Australian people, saying her vote is ‘not up for sale’, and that One Nation will never water down gun laws. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n\n\n\n\n\n\n PaulineHansonOz Hanson says tellingly 'They were precision shots.' Which of course she cannot know. PaulineHansonOz I believe you PaulineHansonOz 🇦🇺WE AUSSIES ARE AWAKE to some FAKE NEWS MSM especially ABC who have Political Agendas & Back-Door Deals with some Politicians to smear & degrade the honest speakers of TRUTH

Pauline Hanson grilled over context of Port Arthur commentsIn an exclusive interview with deborah_knight , Hanson attempted to explain how footage which showed her appearing to imply the 1996 Port Arthur massacre was a government conspiracy was taken out of context and ‘dubbed’. 9News Media reports have lost all credibility and only a fool would accept everything they read and see. Then she needs calling out by journos! How can she say it was altered, this is an obvious one, question her on it! auspol HowToSellAMassacre Not watched but said 'heavily edited' & 'dubbed'! The more she opens her mouth the bigger the foot she can fit in. She got caught out trying to get some money off the NRA (but not for the reasons that the NRA thought)! Intriguing eh?

Hanson's Port Arthur comments are 'loopy' and 'extremely hurtful': Abetz | Sky News AustraliaSenator Eric Abetz says Pauline Hanson’s comments on the Port Arthur massacre are ‘extremely hurtful’ and ‘reopen the wounds of those who lost loved ones, and people who bear psychological and emotional scars from that day’. \n\nMs Hanson was filmed during an undercover investigation by Al Jazeera saying she has 'a lot of questions' about the atrocity, which saw 35 people killed when a gunman opened fire on crowds in Tasmania, triggering moves to tighten gun laws. \n\nMr Abetz, who had a friend killed in the 1996 massacre, slammed Senator Hanson’s comments as ‘loopy’, and said her position ‘defies any objective analysis and does One Nation no credit’. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia \n\n\n\n\n\n\n PaulineHansonOz No one is saying it did not happen. Just that it may not have happened how the government says it did. Because why would you trust the governments narrative as governments are known liars and not everything adds up. Questioning events is freedom and paramount to free societies. PaulineHansonOz She never caused the incident every one and incident is questionable PaulineHansonOz Why do even conservatives fall for the intrinsically misleading 'sources' like ABC/Al Jazeera and trust an islamist propaganda outlet more than a straight AUSTRALIAN shooter such as Pauline Hanson. While the Left is maliciously selling the lies, the cons are just stupid FOOLS

Fresh calls for 'self-destructing' One Nation to be preferenced last after Hanson's Port Arthur commentsThere are renewed calls for the Coalition to preference One Nation last at the federal election following revelations Pauline Hanson appeared to question the 1996 Port Arthur massacre. ScottMorrisonMP are you still sleeping on this one pal? Pauline Hanson is uncaring and unfeeling with only her self-interest at heart, going on these comments. I feel sorry for all the atoms that have been stuck creating Pauline Hanson.
