Pauline Hanson’s Covid heartbreak: Queensland’s border policy has kept her and mysterious lover apart
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has revealed her Covid heartbreak – she hasn’t seen her partner Tony Nyquist in months.
“For those people in Queensland who can’t see their loved ones, I’m in that position,” Senator Hanson told Sky News on Monday.
‘I can’t see my partner who is in NSW and has been shut down in Port Stephens and has been for the past few months.
“He’s my 13-year-old partner and he’s not allowed to cross the border.”

The Queensland senator called for state borders to be opened across the country.
“As the Prime Minister has said, if we get 80 per cent double vaccination for people in Australia, then the borders should be opened and there should be no border closures at all in the future,” she said.
However, Ms Hanson said she doesn’t think this will happen.
“I don’t have that confidence for Queensland because I think she (Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk) is preparing to keep the border closed for another year to everyone outside of Queensland.”
Ms Hanson added that Christmas will have been two years since she has seen her daughter and grandchildren.
“And I can’t see my new granddaughter, who is 20 days old, because she lives in NSW.
“So this is ridiculous. You keep families apart and she (Mrs Palaszczuk) doesn’t take this into account at all.’

She also accused Ms. Palaszczuk of “destroying businesses.”
“Companies are going under. We have people dying by suicide (due to lockdowns). We have health issues here, other issues, and you (Mrs Palaszczuk) are talking about Covid deaths. I blame you and the media, and everyone else who played this to the extent that a 90-year-old in palliative care died of Covid.
‘You compose the Covid deaths, you say how many infections there are. You are not saying that there are 99 percent of people who survive from Covid. You have people dying in their 80s and 90s and 100s from Covid and you are sensational… out of fear. It’s so wrong,” she said.
“This is what scares people that Covid is a death sentence. It’s not a death sentence. We destroy people’s lives by closing borders.’
Mrs. Hanson called on Scott Morrison to do more.
“The Prime Minister has lost control of this country. That is why Palaszczuk is playing this game leading to an election which could possibly be in March next year. So she puts equal pressure on the Morrison government to lose the next election. This is all political as far as I’m concerned.
And until Morrison gets the situation under control and calls the states into line, which he can only do through the Supreme Court, to prevent them from closing the borders, Australians will not have their freedom.
“That’s why we have these protests from Australians who have had enough. And I’ve had enough too.’
Anti-Vaxxer traditions protest at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remberance. Pauline Hanson says both police and protesters have been violent in the protests
Ms Hanson declined to condemn the violence seen at Covid-19 protests last week in Melbourne, including at the Shrine of Remembrance.
“Violence has been shown by both sides, by the police and by the protesters. People have nowhere to go, they don’t know who to turn to,” she said.
“And it annoys me because they go out to protest, (says the media) let’s call them anti-vaxxers. These are people who have made a choice, they don’t want to be forced to get vaccinated.
“I know a specialist doctor who says, ‘I’ll wait as long as I can to get the vaxx.’ I have health care professionals who say they don’t want the vaxx. They have seen the side effects of people who have been hospitalized. So there is much more to it.’
Ms. Hanson said anti-vaxxers can’t get enough of a media coverage.
‘You hear from people who say ‘I’m being vaxxed’, but you don’t hear from the other side of the discussion.
‘People are protesting because you can’t lock them up in the house for months at a time. The mental illness escalates. Children harm themselves, suicide is on the rise.
“People are not getting the medical treatment they need,” she said.
