Senator Lambie calls for burqa ban amid terror raids
by Stephanie Anderson
Senator Jacqui Lambie has called for an immediate ban on burqas, saying such a ban is necessary for public safety.
The Palmer United Party Senator told SBS she supported comments made by Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi, whose tweet linking burqas and the largest terror raids in Australia's history prompted a swift critique from both the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader.
Senator Lambie said she felt for the "poor women who are forced to wear the full-face covering" garments.
