Albanese would make better leader: Hanson

Pauline Hanson says she prefers Anthony Albanese to Labor leader Bill Shorten who she doesn't trust

Pauline Hanson says Anthony Albanese would make a better Labor leader than Bill Shorten.

The One Nation leader told radio 2SM on Tuesday she did not believe Mr Shorten understood "grassroots Australians", and felt Labor would dump him.

"I don't like him, I don't trust him. I think he would be disastrous as prime minister of this country," Senator Hanson said.

Asked to reflect on Mr Albanese, who was on a multi-party delegation to India with her last year, Senator Hanson described him as a "lovely guy".

"I think he would be better leader than what Bill Shorten is," she said.

"But do I trust the Labor party for the economic management of this country? No, I don't."

Senator Hanson said she had been able to talk constructively with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

"He does listen to my points," she said.

Senator Hanson also revealed her former colleague Brian Burston, who quit One Nation, had described her as a "f...wit, a coward and an imbecile" and had been disgruntled for "months" before pulling the pin.
