Queensland election: The pig-hunting weapons dealer set to lead One Nation in State Parliament

He’s a pig hunter, a weapons dealer, and likely to be the new head of One Nation in Queensland.
The Mackay man describes himself as a “fair dinkum citizen politician”, who threw his hat into the political ring to help local businesses and improve youth unemployment.
He lives by the philosophy “Your word and integrity is everything in life” — instilled in him by his grandfather.
He spoke with the ABC while working on a mine site in Central Queensland. “The first thing is making the electorate and the officials connect with the public so that we can get more public views, interaction, to do with the electorate and politics. “My grandad worked right down through the electorate on the railway, knowing all the people in the different railway towns.
He said he was shocked more One Nation candidates were not elected, but he is comfortable being the party’s sole voice in Parliament.
Mr Andrew said the result had a lot to do with the reintroduction of compulsory preferential voting. “I’m sure we’ll all work together, even with different sides of Government, to get the best result for Queensland.”
As for whether you would still see him out hunting wild pigs — Mr Andrew gave a confident “yes”.
