Byron punks Skegss were far from stoked with Pauline Hanson's unexpected election success

The fellas had some choice words for the One Nation leader following Saturday's election.

In case you missed it, One Nation Party leader Pauline Hanson looks set to gain two seats (and up to as many as six) in the senate following Sunday's election, and a lot of people are understandably gobsmacked that this cretin has weaselled her way back into a position of power. Byron Bay punk outfit Skeggs are not a political band by any stretch, but it would appear they harbour significant distaste for Hanson and her questionable ideologies. Following the news of her unexpected electoral achievements yesterday, Skeggs took to Facebook with an unflattering image of the flame-haired politician chowing down on a snag; an image that the trio used as a cover for their demo back in 2014. The band also had some pointed words for Hanson and the One Nation voters of the Australian public, asking: "What the fuck is she doing back here? Some Australians need to stop being gronks. Fuck You Pauline." Take a look at the full post below and check it out on Skegss' Facebook page to see some interesting feedback offered to the band by some of the pro-Pauline public.
