Senator stuns Australia’s Parliament by wearing a BURQA as part of her campaign to have the Islamic head-dress banned in her country

One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson has shocked the Senate by walking into the chamber wearing a burqa.

The Queensland Senator, who has been outspoken about her opposition to the burqa, was pictured in the Islamic garb when she appeared at Parliamentary Question Time on Thursday afternoon.

Standing to address the Senate, Ms Hanson called for the Government to ban ‘oppressive’ full-face coverings.
