Dual cit­i­zen­ship

Chinchilla News - - NEWS | OPINION -

IN 1998, Heather Hill (One Na­tion Se­na­tor elect) was de­nied her seat in Par­lia­ment be­cause she hadn’t re­nounced her Bri­tish cit­i­zen­ship.

At the time it was whis­pered that there were many in Par­lia­ment with dual cit­i­zen­ship, but that was con­ve­niently over­looked. Now the dual cit­i­zens are be­ing ex­posed at a rapid pace.

The ques­tion has to be asked: “How many since 1901 have held dual cit­i­zen­ship?” If many have sat in Par­lia­ment as dual cit­i­zens and thus il­le­gal, is the leg­is­la­tion they voted on and passed null and void?

Might not this be a mat­ter that needs to be looked at by the High Court? Talk about open­ing a can of worms. Where might such an in­ves­ti­ga­tion lead?

It’s time we took stock of Par­lia­ment and Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans as we have been dud­ded for over a cen­tury by their un­law­ful machi­na­tions.
