Pauline Hanson tears into Clive Palmer
Pauline Hanson has fired a broadside at Clive Palmer, saying the mining magnate is "not interested in the country".
The One Nation leader criticised Mr Palmer for going to Fiji in the final week of the election campaign.
"Clive Palmer is only interested in himself," Senator Hanson told Today.
"He rang my office and asked me to support the corporate tax cuts because it would put more money into his pocket, and that's a fact."
Mr Palmer stands a chance of picking up a seat in the Senate in Queensland.
She also questioned what would happen if Clive Palmer was not elected, but other members of the United Australia Party were.
"If Clive Palmer doesn't get elected to the Parliament, who is going to lead the Parliament?" Senator Hanson said.
"You think Brian Burston is the answer? I tell you what. He wouldn't have a clue."
Senator Hanson said she will work constructively with Labor if they are elected, but would not support any tax increases.
"I won't wear increasing taxes on the people, and I will not wear taking away the franking credits for independent retirees," she said.
"Bill Shorten is basically looking at taxing the people to the hilt."
Today host Deb Knight also questioned Senator Hanson on her falling numbers in the recent polls.
"Of all the things you have faced, all the scandals that's been going on, can you blame people for having their doubts about One Nation and considering Clive (Palmer) over you?" Ms Knight asked.
Senator Hanson hit back on a personal level.
"I've actually gone up since the last election, unlike your show, Deb, since you have taken you have gone down in your viewership," Senator Hanson said.
To which Knight replied: “I'm not having a go personally, it is my job to ask you questions that I think, as a journalist, I'm doing. I'm putting facts to you that that is what the Newspoll is showing, and obviously the polls have been wrong in the past, which is what you are indicating.”
