This terrifying looking bloke is Ken Turner, a far right politician from Brisbane. The former fisherman entered politics as a member of the One Nation Party. Turner was elected to the seat of Thuringowa in 1998 as well as holding several other representative roles for primary industries, rural communities and environment.

Turner was a regular fixture at ONP meetings and events, being nicknamed by his bigoted mates as Father Christmas. Turner would lose his seat in 2001.
