Maggie Kirkpatrick: (on Australia) It's the freedoms that we enjoy here in Australia which are the most important to me - freedoms that in these past few months I've seen slipping away, and they are in danger of slipping away if we don't do something about it. We don't really understand how little it takes to compromise that stuff. The racial and political and sexual freedoms that we enjoy, for which we are known throughout the world, are looking very tenuous to me at the moment and that saddens me. It's all very well for people to joke about Pauline Hanson, but right from the outset there is no joking there, oh no. If ever I have seen a woman being used by the forces of evil it's her and it terrifies me.
