Anthony Albanese congratulates Prime Minister on One Nation decision

Labor MP Anthony Albanese has congratulated the Prime Minister on his decision to preference One Nation below Labor at the election.

One Nation officials were filmed, in an undercover Al Jazeera investigation, meeting with the US National Rifle Association.

Scott Morrison made the announcement after the second part of the investigation revealed Pauline Hanson questioning if the Port Arthur massacre was actually a government conspiracy.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has denounced One Nation and promised to preference the party below Labor at May’s election, saying “sadly, I’m disappointed”.

Mr Albanese tells Chris Smith he believes Scott Morrison made the right decision.

“He was put under pressure by One Nation’s own actions.

“Labor will, of course, be doing the same.

“No one in the Labor Party or the Liberal Party… has suggested any dismantling of our gun laws.”
