Nobody needed this: Brian Burston levels sexual harassment allegations at One Nation leader

Too many visuals, none of them pretty.


Two former Senate colleagues are engaged in a war of words, with the United Australia Party's Brian Burston levelling sexual harassment allegations at One Nation leader Pauline Hanson.
Key points:

Senator Burston has made a series of claims in The Daily Telegraph about Senator Hanson's behaviour towards him over the course of the last two decades, alleging she had acted inappropriately towards him numerous times.

He told the newspaper of one incident in which he alleged Senator Hanson "rubbed her fingers up my spine" in 1998, and also claimed she had propositioned him on a number of occasions after his election to Parliament in 2016.

Senator Hanson responded to the claims on Sky News on Wednesday night.

"I can't stop laughing about it," she said.

"I'm 64 but I tell you what, I'm not that desperate."

1. And then there was the punch-up,

with Hanson's chief-of-staff (i.e., her puppet-master), being banned from Parliament House for attacking Burston.

It's hard to say which of the three is more horrible. I wish they'd all go.
