Hanson keeps feet on the ground

SHE may not have been dancing with any stars, but former One Nation leader Pauline Hanson still got a kick out of Wintersun this weekend.

The 55-year-old was spotted by the Tweed Daily News as she attempted to blend in with the crowd on Marine Parade in Coolangatta on Saturday morning.

Dressed simply in black pants, a white shirt and hidden behind a pair of sunglasses, Ms Hanson was greeted by former supporters who recognised her as she observed the classic cars on display.

“I've never been to Wintersun before. I've always been too busy,” Ms Hanson said.

“I think it's a fantastic event. I love the music and the atmosphere that's been created here.”

Ms Hanson said the older models of cars featured in the rock 'n' roll nostalgia festival reminded her of her father.

“The older cars here remind me of the ones my dad used to own. I used to help him polish them and keep them clean,” she said.

Despite her runner-up finish in Dancing With The Stars five years ago, Ms Hanson was reluctant to hit the dance floor.

“I won't be doing any dancing today,” she said.
