Often politics can be a bruising affair with no love lost on either side but this week one of One Nation’s Western Australian representatives Robin Scott showed that it can also be room for compassion and decency.

Reaching across the aisle, Robin gave a heartfelt speech on the strength of women battling the scourge of breast cancer as sadly one of his colleges across the chamber, Labor MP Alannah MacTiernan, has begun the long journey with this illness.

It is important to remember that while we might not always agree with someone’s politics, taking the time to treat each other with kindness and compassion can be a powerful gesture of respect.

This is my Member's Statement from last night, discussing the strength of women and the scourge of breast cancer. I look forward to posting more of my contributions to parliament on a wide range of issues from now on.
