From the Author
Perceived as a threat by the major parties, the powers that be set out to get her in a plot worthy of Francis Underwood of House of Cards, at his most Machiavellian. She was convicted of electoral fraud and sentenced to nine years in jail. After serving three months, she was released, the sentence quashed, and her name cleared. And yet instead of being viewed as a victim of a terrible injustice, Pauline Hanson who conducted herself with dignity and heroism throughout her ordeal is perceived by many as a figure of fun.
I was amazed there wasn't a backlash against those who conspired to remove Ms Hanson from the political stage and put it down to the prevailing belief that politics is the province of the well-educated. The inference was clear,if you don't have a degree you don't have a right to voice an opinion. It got up my nose. I translated MPs' and journalists' contempt for Ms Hanson as an indication that ordinary people do not rate. Salvation Jane was written to thumb my nose at elitist condescension and to applaud a battler willing to "have a go".
