  1. Former One Nation politician Pauline Hanson has denied she's racist, but says multiculturalism is not helping Australia. Ms Hanson is making a comeback to politics, standing for a NSW upper house seat in the March 26 election. NSW Premier Kristina Keneally greeted the news by saying state Labor would direct no preferences to Ms Hanson, accusing her of harbouring racist views. 'We absolutely condemn the sorts of racist and discriminatory policies which come from Ms Hanson and parties like One Nation,' Ms Keneally said. The NSW Liberal Party has also said it would offer no preferences to Ms Hanson. But Ms Hanson has told told Fairfax Radio Network, 'I'm not racist.' No-one can ever comment or make a comment on any racist statement I have ever said,' she said on Wednesday. 'I have ... as an Australian ... a right to question immigration and multiculturalism, which I don't believe is helping our country. 'I believe in people coming here, assimilating, becoming Australians and be proud of this country and abide by the laws of the land. 'I don't think there's anything wrong with that.' Ms Hanson said the major political parties feared her. 'Why? Because they know I've always spoken out, I expose them for what they are,' she said. 'They want to hold onto their power and the positions. 'It is in the people's interest of NSW to ensure that I am on the floor of NSW.' Ms Hanson is to stand for an upper house seat with a group of 16 independents but conceded it would be a 'battle' to get elected. Ms Hanson said she had been thinking about making a political comeback since last year, with voters urging her to stand. Parliamentary accountability and law and order reforms would be high on her agenda. 'Something I'd like to consider and put to the government is the separation of powers of the police force to the parliament,' she said. 'I don't think the police force should be controlled by a minister of police. 'They could look at separating them. So they (police) can get on and do their job.' She also also said she was 'completely against' Prime Minister Julia Gillard's carbon tax. On the subject of Ms Keneally, Ms Hanson said, 'I think she's a very nice lady but she doesn't know what she's talking about.'
  2. Makes an interesting read: ABC news: Population boom inescapable: report - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Quoting - "strong population growth is "probably inescapable" and even the figure of 36 million is only achievable by factoring a significant reduction in migrant intake." Sydney Morning Herald: Population boom inevitable, PM told Quoting - "even if annual net migration was lowered to an unrealistically low 60,000 per annum, Australia's population would still reach 29 million by 2050."
