Visitors to Pauline Hanson’s website are being redirected to the Refugee Council of Australia this morning.

It appears that whoever is in charge of Senator Hanson’s domain name (paulinehanson.com.au) forgot to notice it was about to expire.

Fast-acting cyber activists have bought the domain and redirected it to the refugee advocacy group Refugee Council of Australia.

RCOA is a non-profit national umbrella body for refugees and people seeking asylum and those who support them, with 200 organisational and over 1,000 individual members.

Their website says, ‘You can help us keep fighting for refugees and people seeking asylum by becoming a member, donating, volunteering or taking part in our campaigns.’

If he/she still has a job, Pauline’s Hanson’s webmaster has some explaining to do.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Dear Haxors,
    Thank you for the beautiful smiling faces replacing the cantankerous red head.
    So glad these folks call Australia home 🙂

  2. Perhaps she could use the opportunity to have a read and actually learn something while she’s on the website. Alas, I don’t think informed opinion has ever been sonething Pauline offers.

  3. What a great job they did. They all must be congratulated . Goes to show what an imbecile she is. She has just exposed herself for having no intelligence or brains. This group have made a lot of people happy today.

  4. Wonderful … if Mungo was in a grave he would be chortling and spinning with laughter. Well done the Refugee Council of Australia.

  5. An extraordinary tale of incompetence, but then, when you look at who is on the Hanson payroll, it would be foolish to have any expectations of a high performance standard. I have nothing good to say about James Ashby and wonder periodically why he isn’t in jail for his involvement in the stitch-up of Peter Slipper. – at least the Courts threw out his claims he was “sexually harassed” by Slipper and he lost his case to recoup his legal costs, but clearly as Hanson’s Chief of Staff, he might just be something of an underperformer, especially given the NRA debacle is also on his CV – or omitted as the case may be! If the domain name had gone to someone who just wanted a bucket-loan of money for Hanson to buy it back, it would just be a laugh. However, that it was bought by the Refugee Council of Australia makes it priceless. Sometimes, karma can be a powerful force. Sadly, if someone has Googled trying to find the Hanson website, there possibly won’t be much point putting in links to the actual Refugee Council website.

  6. This is illegal in Australia!
    The registration of domain names in the .com.au namespace is governed by the .au Domain Administration Limited (auDA) Rules.
    Paulinehanson.com.au was never the politician’s official website. Her official website, senatorhanson.com.au is still operational.

  7. Love every bit of it. Can we collectively get rid of the narcissistic self serving red head out off office and the headlines for all the wrong reasons
