Pauline Hanson's One Nation Invades Melbourne: Candidate Lisa Stark


4 May 2022

Lisa Stark is a corporate executive in marketing and long time supporter of the Liberal Party. Feeling abandoned by the party, Lisa is running in the wealthy electorate and lifestyle Mecca of Melbourne: Goldstein.

Currently held by Liberal MP Tim Wilson and threatened by climate change focused candidate Zoe Daniel, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this electorate will be won on climate change policy but Lisa Stark believes that there is a strong voter base in Goldstein that are so affected in their businesses and personal lives that climate change debates will not cut it this cycle.

Lisa is a candidate for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party and feels that it best represents the interests of those pragmatic, middle Australians. In this discussion I tried to feel out the mood of this glitzy electorate and probe what type of party One Nation is today.
