Pauline Hanson, Anne Aly work to bridge divide over lunch
by Phoebe Wearne
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson and Muslim MP Anne Aly have broken bread for the first time, discussing issues close to their hearts over a polite lunch in the MPs' dining room.
There have been expectations of fireworks between the two since the election of Dr Aly, a counter-terrorism expert and Australia's first female Muslim Federal MP, and Senator Hanson to Parliament in July.
Dr Aly migrated to Australia from Egypt as a young child and rejects Senator Hanson's anti-Muslim policies, including a blanket ban on Muslim immigration.
