Lake Macquarie One Nation senator, Brian Burston is set to defy party leader, Pauline Hanson by supporting the federal government’s $35.6 billion company tax cuts.

Brian Burston believes the business sector needs the extra tax relief, saying he’s not getting any flak from NSW voters on the issue.

He’s told The Australian, he was blindsided by Senator Hanson’s decision to withdraw support for the tax package, saying  he was “a very principled person” who intended to honour a deal struck with Finance Minister, Mathias Cormann in March to pass the tax cuts.
