New political duo Hanson and Katter ‘could be an incredibly powerful force’

Courier-Mail columnist Daisy Cousens says Queensland politicians Pauline Hanson and Bob Katter’s new alliance could be “an incredibly powerful force” – provided they “actually bury the hatchet”.

“They have similar interests, similar concerns,” Ms Cousens said. “I commend them for actually sitting down and going, OK, this could be a very good idea here”.

According to the Sunday Mail, the pair are joining forces in a bid to increase their federal political muscle, steal votes from the major parties and help decide who wins next years’ state elections.
