Independent senator Fraser Anning has defended his taxpayer-funded trip to attend an anti-immigration rally in Melbourne. Fraser says the trip was official parliamentary business, as the violent crimes committed by people of African appearance in Melbourne are now being replicated in his home state of Queensland. However, Anning concedes that he has little chance of retaining his seat at the next election. Both sides of politics have condemned the racially-motivated rally at St Kilda beach, while some federal MPs have criticised Anning for attending the event.
