Neil Mitchell interviews controversial Queensland Senator Fraser Anning
Neil Mitchell aired a bizarre interview with Queensland Senator Fraser Anning this morning.
The senator made headlines this week advocating for using the phrase “final solution” while advocating for a new White Australia policy.
“Fraser Anning is wrong. Very wrong,” said Neil on 3AW Mornings.
“But he is an elected member … (and) I wanted to let him put his view across. I also wanted to debate certain points, although I don’t think there’s much point…”
During the interview, Senator Anning refused to apologise for his offensive comments earlier this week and disputed a number of points that Neil attributed to the police commissioner.
Neil also pointed out that a lot of the people Anning was taking issue with were Australian-born, to which Anning said, “Well then I’d deport them.”
Neil responded; “How can you deport them if they are Australian-born?”
