Banister is a minor level far right politician and member of One Nation Party. She ran for election in 2013 on a platform of Islamophobia, calling for a ban to be put on Halal certification, burqa’s, Islamic cultural practices and immigration.
Banister received her two seconds of fame when she said she thought that Islam was a country and that Jews “follow Jesus Christ”. This resulted in her quitting the party. Watch the link above for a good chuckle.
