Pauline Hanson’s “Please Explain” Interview

This is the famous “please explain” interview that Pauline Hanson did with Channel 9’s Sixty Minutes program in 1996.

The interview was shown just six weeks after Hanson’s maiden speech, in which she famously said: “I believe we are in danger of being swamped by Asians.”

In this interview, Hanson elaborates on her claims about Asian immigration and the treatment of Aborigines. Whilst the “please explain” remark gained notoriety, Hanson also dismissed official Immigration Department statistics as “book figures” that she did not believe.
