Pauline Hanson's One Nation has been accused of asking the powerful US gun lobby the National Rifle Association for $US20 million ($A28m) in funding, in part to help it roll back gun control in Australia. Queensland leader Steve Dickson and Senator Hanson's chief of staff James Ashby made the request in a meeting with NRA of America officials and other pro-gun groups in the US, an undercover investigation by Al Jazeera reveals. One Nation has responded by trying to discredit the news organisation. "Al Jazeera are a state-owned propaganda arm of the Qatari government that supports Islamic extremist groups and are not a legitimate media organisation," the party said in a statement. Statement by One Nation's James Ashby: Al Jazeera are a state owned propaganda arm of the Qatari government that supports Islamic extremist groups and are not a legitimate media organisation. One Nation was invited by Rodger Muller, who has now been outed as a foreign agent working for Al Jazeera to meet with the NRA, American business leaders and attend the Congressional Sportsman’s Dinner. One Nation has asked Al Jazeera to show complete transparency and release the full context of conversations. The matter has been referred to ASIO and the Australian Federal Police due to concerns of foreign interference into Australian politics in the lead up to the imminent federal election. It is understood One Nation were targeted because of its strong approach to reducing immigration numbers and a travel ban on countries with terrorism links. One Nation strongly supports the rights of lawful gun ownership within Australia and have clearly outlined our policy on our website. One Nation members have always complied with the law. The secretly recorded conversations occurred in September 2018. www.7plus.com.au/news #OneNation #7NEWS

How do you teach kids about what's right and what's wrong? What about how to listen and respectfully disagree to alternative views? Dr Simon Longstaff from The Ethics Centre suggests our politicians take this pledge ... what do you think? THE POLITICIAN'S PLEDGE As originally conceived, the practice of politics is intended to be a noble calling; the arena within which a citizen might contribute to the establishment and maintenance of a good society. Yet, without voluntary, ethical restraint, the pursuit and exercise of power risks becoming personal, brutal and self-serving; coarsening the polity, bringing public institutions into disrepute and damaging the common weal. So, consistent with the highest ideals of our profession, I promise that: In the pursuit of power, I will: • Act in good conscience, • Enable informed decision making by my fellow citizens, • Respect the intrinsic dignity of all, • Refrain from exploiting my rivals' private failings for political gain, and • Act so as to merit the trust and respect of the community. In the exercise of power, I will: • Give effect to the ideals of democratic government and represent the interests of my electorate as a whole, • Abide by the letter and spirit of the Constitution and uphold the rule of law, • Advance the public interest before any personal, sectional or partisan interest, • Hold myself accountable for conduct for which I am responsible, and • Exercise the privileges and discharge the duties of Public Office with dignity, care and honour.
