Hanson christened her 'Battler Bus' with 'cheap' champagne

Pauline Hanson says she used a cheap bottle of champagne to christen her campaign bus, but it was the media - not her - being stingy.

Pauline Hanson says she hopes the media will spring for a better bottle of champagne when her party wins at least 10 seats at the Queensland election.

The One Nation leader indulged a Nine network reporter when she used a "cheap" bottle of bubbly he'd given her to christen her "battler bus" before it hit the road on Monday.

"Channel Nine bought that bottle of champagne and asked me to do it - and (it was) a cheap bottle of champagne I must say," she told Nine's Today show host Karl Stefanovic on Tuesday.

"When we actually win these double-digit seats you can buy me a better bottle of champagne to celebrate."

Senator Hanson is heading north on a road trip to key regional seats she hopes One Nation can claim on November 25, with her chief of staff James Ashby at the wheel of her campaign bus.

She says voters are fed up with Labor and the LNP, and the leaders of both parties are duds.

She says Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has "no vision, no leadership skills whatsoever".



"I can't say anything better of (LNP leader) Tim Nicholls either. I think they're both hopeless."

Senator Hanson is backing Wall of Fire - a nod to her red hair - to win Tuesday's Melbourne Cup, and she's aiming to watch the big race from Gladstone.
