A powerful new bloc is forming in the Senate around Conservatives' leader Cory Bernardi that could have a huge impact on government legislation.
Three different senators from three different parties have formed an alliance, with potential new recruit Brian Burston tipped to join the group after falling out with One Nation.
The group already includes Senator Bernardi, Liberal Democrat Senator David Leyonhjelm and Katter’s Australian Party Senator Fraser Anning.
Senator Bernardi explained to 2GB’s Chris Smith the power of the bloc can help the Coalition government achieve its mandate in a common sense way.
