ONE Nation leader Pauline Hanson received an enthusiastic welcome at Midland Gate Shopping Centre with shoppers stopping for a chat and a selfie as she walked through the centre with local candidates today.

Shopper Joy Easterby said One Nation would get her vote tomorrow.

“I don’t like the other two,” she said.

“I like One Nation’s policy on immigration and getting more police on our streets.”

Ellenbrook resident Athol Farmer posed for a picture with the controversial leader but said he would not vote for One Nation.

“I’m a Noongar man and I don’t think she’ll make a difference for us,” he said.

“Pauline is ignorant, she doesn’t know what we have been through.”

Ms Hanson said she was committed to working for the people.

“People have been treated like mushrooms by the Government,” she said.

“I am doing the best I can to represent my people.”

One Nation candidate for Forrestfield, Jenny Bennett, said there was a mood for change in her electorate.

“There has been an overwhelming response in Forrestfield to what One Nation represents,” she said.

“It’s time in this state that people were given an option other than the two major political parties.”

Ms Hanson also stopped in Guildford and Ellenbrook as part of her weeklong campaign visit in Perth.

Meanwhile, One Nation candidate for Scarborough Margaret Dodd today quit the party.
