An otherwise tolerant Greensborough man has suddenly grown fearful of women wearing burqas on the off chance one of them might be Pauline Hanson. The man’s sudden change in opinion was caused by Hanson’s bizarre stunt in the Senate chamber on Thursday when she wore a burqa to Question Time to make some kind of misguided point. 

Speaking to The Watsonia Bugle earlier today, Dan Williams said, “I’ve never really had an issue with the burqa, but that Pauline Hanson really gives me the heebie jeebies. The idea of even just walking past her in the street makes me feel unsafe.” 

After seeing the stunt pop up on his newsfeed on Thursday afternoon, Williams said he had a disturbing nightmare that night where Hanson revealed herself to him from underneath a burqa at a fish and chip shop in Ipswich and then served him a dry piece of flake and a couple of overcooked dimmies. He added, “so I woke up after a shocking night’s sleep, and walking from Flinders Street Station to the office yesterday morning I was stressing out. I didn’t even leave the building for lunch. She’s gone and given burqa-wearing women a bad name. Can you imagine what it would be like to have a small minority give the rest of you a bad reputation?”
