Jacqui Lambie erupts at Pauline Hanson, One Nation over COVID-19 vaccine mandates

Outspoken senator Jacquie Lambie has called for Australians opposed to mandatory vaccinations to “be a goddamn bloody adult”, put others before themselves and step forward to get the jab.

Her impassioned plea came after One Nation leader Pauline Hanson attempted to introduce a private members bill seeking to ban mandatory vaccinations and overturn state and territory leaders’ requirements for full vaccination to be required in some settings.

The bill, which was eventually voted against by an overwhelming majority, was seconded by Nationals senator Matt Canavan and supported by Liberal backbencher Gerard Rennick, who alongside Alex Antic crossed the floor to support the bill.

Senator Hanson and fellow One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts were not able to vote for their own bill, because they were attending parliament remotely. She requested for leave to be granted that the record show they were in support of the bill.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison granted Senator Hanson approval to introduce the bill, but said the government would not support it.
