Gold Coast One Nation senator calls it quits

Outspoken Gold Coast man Andy Semple has withdrawn from One Nation as the candidate for the seat of Currumbin, less than three days after being named.

The financial business adviser reportedly refused to remove tweets from his personal account which called for the ban of burqas.

The first-time political candidate cited a disagreement with Pauline Hanson as his reason for withdrawing.
