On May 8, 2019, One Nation MP Mark Latham delivered his maiden speech to the New South Wales Parliament. Alan Jones called it the most outstanding political speech he had ever read.
“It should be printed in every newspaper in the country,” Jones said. “It should be read by every school child, better still, read by every university lecturer who preaches left-wing, politically correct rubbish.”
During the speech, Latham threw his support behind rugby star Israel Folau, saying he will use his time in NSW Parliament to push for the protection of religious freedom.
“No Australian should live in fear of the words they utter,” Latham said. “No Australian should be fearful of proclaiming four of the most glorious words of our civilisation: I Am A Christian. No one should be sacked by their employer for statements of genuine belief and faith that have got nothing to do with their job.”
