It is no secret that China is aggressively pursuing its own interests across the world and doing what it can to influence countries like Australia.
That is why it was so disturbing when links between Liberal MP Gladys Liu and the Chinese Communist Party were brought to light.
The true extent of the problem became painfully clear after an interview between Andrew Bolt and Ms. Liu.
Ms. Liu refused to accuse China of theft in the South China Sea, refused to admit that China was a dictatorship and seemed extremely reluctant to criticise China.
Since then further evidence emerged that Ms. Liu had failed to declare tens of thousands worth of donations to the Liberal party and that ASIO had advised the Liberals against her preselection.
This is not acceptable behaviour from someone who claims to represent the people of Australia.
Following these disturbing revelations, Senator Hanson called for a full investigation of the matter saying Prime Minister Scott Morrison has a lot of questions to answer.
One Nation supported a full inquiry into the issues of Chinese influence but the inquiry was blocked after the Liberals and Labor united to defeat the legislation.
One Nation also voted to have the Government table a full report explaining in detail the issues surrounding their MP Gladys Liu.
However, the Government was also able to quash the report after receiving help from the Centre Alliance.
One Nation will continue to fight to hold the Government to account but so long as Labor and the Cross-Bench work to protect them, they will never face true scrutiny.
