Malcolm Roberts has already hit the streets of Ipswich to try to woo over voters as he makes a play for a seat in the Queensland parliament.

Malcolm Roberts has gone straight from being bounced out of the Senate to campaigning for a seat in the Queensland parliament in the yet-to-be-called state election.

"This town has been neglected by the Labor Party. The Labor Party takes Ipswich for granted. We are going to stop that," the One Nation candidate told reporters in "Pauline Hanson's heartland" of Ipswich.

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson on Friday announced Mr Roberts would be the party's candidate for Ipswich straight after the High Court ruled he was ineligible to sit in the Senate because he was also a British citizen.
