One Nation have been on the receiving end of a very generous donation thanks to veteran Sydney broadcaster Alan Jones.
Mr Jones confirmed to the ABC that he made a contribution of $10,000 to the party, saying he was “supporting a mate” referring to One Nation’s New South Wales leader Mark Latham.
A thrilled Latham said the donation was a “very strong endorsement of the One Nation’s policy approach”.
“We are indeed very happy that someone of Alan Jones’ standing and experience in public policy in Australia is supporting us,” he said.
“Alan’s backing our policies, particularly cutting immigration and ending overdevelopment in Sydney.”
It is predicted that Latham will be elected to the state’s Upper House following the March 23 election.
Jones and Latham have held a close relationship with each other for a number of years, with the radio host appearing at many Liberal Party fundraisers in the past.
They sealed their friendship last year when they released a cookbook titled Conversations in the Kitchen: Good Food, Great Friends, which asked readers to “share in their world of good food, their friendship and their views”.
Jones provided the generous donation in instalments of $5000 – with one contribution under his name and the other under his company Belford Productions.
