Hinch open to naming names in first speech

It will be about 5000 words long and when he's done people will know he's arrived in Canberra.

That's how controversial-broadcaster-turned-senator Derryn Hinch is approaching his maiden speech in federal parliament.

The Victorian senator spent five hours working on the address.

Newbies are usually allocated 12 minutes, but Senator Hinch thinks his will run much, much longer.

"They ... don't gong you so you can talk for two hours if you want to," he told 3AW radio on Tuesday.

The speech will include the platform of the Derryn Hinch's Justice Party, as well as some "personal stuff".

And he has a few other things up his sleeve.

"I think you'll know I'm there," he said.

When asked by broadcaster Neil Mitchell if he was going to raise hell, Senator Hinch replied: "I think so".

The prominent advocate against pedophilia is also prepared to name, names.

"I'm not saying I'm going to do that yet. I haven't finished it, I haven't written it yet.

"But if I have to do it I will."
