Sometimes I think Pauline Hanson is a figment of my imagination.
The scrapes she gets herself into give the appearance of being created by a failed scriptwriter. The latest alleged voting fraud is a good example.
In this latest case, however, she’s the victim of a scam.
Apparently the Sean Castle character who wound her up belongs to the HS Chapman society, a group that believes that electoral rorting is widespread. They have links to the Australians for a Constitutional Monarchy.
His motives are unknown, but it is clearly possible that he set up Pauline to prove a point – that the electoral system is open to fraud.
This bloke works as a teaching coordinator at a “Christian” school. I wonder what he regards as “Christian” values. What part of fraud is Christian?
And the taxpayer has to foot the legal bill? If there is any justice, Mr Castle should be invoiced – or perhaps the taxpayer funded school that employs him.
Even stranger, he perpetrates a fraud to expose an alleged fraud.
How Christian is that?
