Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has urged voters to dump Senator Anning, who's been branded a disgrace for his comments on the Christchurch terror attack. The government and Labor will move a censure motion condemning Senator Anning's comments when parliament returns next month. Former prime minister Tony Abbott believes Senator Anning will be booted out of parliament at the election. Senator Anning replaced One Nation's disqualified Malcolm Roberts in 2017 but quit the party to sit as an independent after a falling out with Pauline Hanson. The One Nation leader says she will abstain from voting to censure Senator Anning because it won't "prove a damn thing".
