Senator Jacqui Lambie says 'I've lost my son'

Senator Jacqui Lambie applied to register a political party called the Jacqui Lambie Network to give "ordinary Australians" a chance to enter politics.

Her party would oppose Sharia Law, advocate for clear labelling of Halal products and halve the foreign budget.  It would support seats in Parliament for Indigenous Australians, and have a "special interest" in Defence families.

Some people think she has delusions of grandeur and got to Canberra under false pretences.  She's nothing but an uneducated bogan and doesn't belong there.

She was elected Senator for Tasmania, not because of her own efforts, but because she was a member of the Palmer United Party. And it didn't take her long to figure out that she could dump Clive Palmer, become an independent, and run her own show.

But like her or loathe her, Jacque Lambie is currently going through every parent's nightmare - she has lost a child to that life-destroying drug called ice.

She is calling for national legislation that would enable parents to force their child under the age of 18 into rehab.  "We need involuntary detox so the parents can take control of the child's situation and get the kids the help they need."

Although she admits her 21 year old son would simply walk out if he were forced into rehab, it could prove a lifeline for children as young as 10 who have been found to be regular users of ice.

The Senator knows her son has already been in trouble over the past few months and will likely end up in jail. 

"I've lost him, I can't help him" she said. "I can only pray that the court will give him the option of going into rehab for the next six months or going to jail.... because right now, that's the only way I can get my son back."
