STANDING at the Capricorn Coast's picturesque Tanby Point, One Nation party leader Senator Pauline Hanson launched a tirade.

The out-spoken politician visited the Capricorn Coast over the weekend attending both the popular Yeppoon Races and Village Festival - but it certainly wasn't all fun and games.

During her visit, Ms Hanson visited Tanby Point in Emu Park and filmed a rant about the Government, the Australian Taxation Office and squat toilets which was later posted on her official Pauline Hanson's Please Explain Facebook page.

"You won't believe what the Government and ATO are doing now," Ms Hanson wrote in the post.

"Just when you thought our PC brigade couldn't be any more backward, someone came up with an idea to put squat toilets into the new Australian Tax Office in Melbourne.

"Why? Because over 20% of the ATO workforce in Melbourne come from NON ENGLISH SPEAKING BACKGROUNDS.

"The question I pose is if they can't work out how to use a westernised toilet, how are they expected to work out our tax system and give advice to ordinary Australians? Please explain?"

She didn't hold back in the video, even demonstrating how to use a squat toilet.

"I can't believe my topic of conversation today is about squat toilets," Ms Hanson said.

"You're saying what? Yes. It's been brought to my attention that the ATO are going to put in squat toilets because over 20% of their staff is from a non English speaking background.

"Squat toilets right, you've got to squat to use them. So anyway, it's totally confusing.

"If they don't know how to use our toilets, regardless of just at the ATO, our parks, convention centres, in the Aussie homes and everywhere else, then what the hell is going on?

"Because I know what's more confusing, and it's definitely not using a squat toilet, it's doing our tax."
