Senator Hanson-Young claimed the next terror attack in Australia would be on Senator Hanson's head, after the One Nation senator pulled a controversial stunt in the Senate on Thursday.

Senator Bernardi has been a long-time advocate of banning the burqa, a cause Senator Hanson has taken up in returning to the federal parliament in the Senate.
