Actually I lie. He was first elected in 2013 so if the Italian citizenship lapsed then then he should be fine for the 2016 election.

Canavan still rooted. Seriously, would one of the independents fire off a protest against Banks and could the HC please clarify this entitled BS once and for all.

Farkin lol at all this. Am enjoying the brownies born to rule mentality and palaver. The juxtaposition of the Positions of the Brownies and No Notion to that of the Hippies is sharp. The Brownies need Saddam Trump to pardon them.

One of the Tozzie pinkos has now been drawn in. She says the British foreign office acknowledged receipt of her renunciation form a week before the cut off but she doesn't say when it became official (which I thought would have thought is the relevant date).

We are (increasingly) a nation of migrants, so it's no wonder that many of the pollies have links to other countries, and we should be seeing this if our talk of diversity is to be anything more than lip service ...

However, it's been careless of all embroiled in this saga to have contrived to be elected whilst still outside the current strict eligibility criteria. I have English (1) and non-English (2) European ancestry on both sides, just two generations back, so it's easy enough to see how people could be unwittingly eligible for citizenship of another country .... with the law as it has been, it's clearly incumbent on prospective pollies to take every step and then some to exclude themselves from foreign citizenship: just thinking you don't have it because you've never used it or even applied for it isn't enough.

In reality, though (and I'm talking prospectively, not seeking to correct the past) ... so long as they have Australian citizenship, and more importantly allegiance, should that not be enough? Isn't it about time and in the interests of all parties to re-visit the laws to reflect that modern reality?

And now, going back - how many of our very first federal politicians would have been ineligible for office under a strict interpretation of the current law? A high percentage, I'd imagine, but I have no information ... has anyone seen anything on this?

I don't think citizenship actually existed until sometime between the wars (and has been a farking mess ever since). And it was (still is?) illegal to hold dual citizenship if you went looking for it.

Whilst a lot of these miscreants don't seem to have taken the required effort the HC should at least clarify "entitled" one way or another.

All the more reason to have a Parliamentary vote which could happen in a few days. It's only our Tories which keeping this a thing.

Have to get it through so that we can begin the debate on same-sex divorce.

Tony Abbott, thunderqunt:

“I say to you, if you don’t like same-sex marriage, vote ‘no’. If you’re worried about religious freedom and freedom of speech, vote ‘no’. If you don’t like political correctness, vote ‘no’, because voting no will help to stop political correctness in its tracks.”

I think he has a point. Political correctness is the scourge of the western world.

Australia Post?

We might get a result before the next election but I wouldn't be over-confident.

Well ok. I admit to a grievous error. Always thought Barnaby Joyce, like his chief clapper - Bodyline - was an extra terrestrial spy. Turns out Barnaby is a Snoozie. Far more dangerous and fatal to the future of humanity.
