PAULINE HANSON EMERGES AS THE QUEEN OF A POTENTIALLY UNRULY SENATE

Arise, Queen Pauline of the parliament.

When the final results emerged on Thursday, the record shows the Coalition has 30 senators (down three), Labor has 26 (up one), the Greens have nine (the South Australian Robert Simms failed to get back so they are down one) – and the crossbench now numbers eleven, which is three more than the last parliament. That last parliament would be the one the Coalition complained was unmanageable.
