Yiannopoulos, Mr Milo
Senator Di Natale, we've had bullies and bigots elected to this parliament. I agree with a lot of what you've said about this man. I don't want to make him a martyr. I go back to the case of David Irving, when he was banned from coming to Australia and was turned into a bit of a martyr by all of the people who were holocaust deniers. It was in my days as a journalist, so I interviewed him on television, by satellite, from overseas, argued with him and tried to tear him apart. That's what should be done with this man here. He should not be made into a martyr.
