Time to re- think citizenship
THE citizenship saga of Federal Parliamentarians is occupying media coverage with nearly every news bulletin. Frankly, I think most are getting fatigued from hearing about it.
Just because someone may have dual citizenship because of heritage doesn’t mean that they are or would be disloyal to Australia. Quite the contrary, most would be more loyal than some of those of the past who were in government, especially after WWII when the United Nations was established.
Some of those parliamentarians signed up to quite a few UN covenants and treaties which have led to the watering down of Australian sovereignty. There have been court cases which have issued judgements after referring to UN covenants and agreements to which Australia had given assent.
So, it doesn’t follow that just because someone has dual citizenship they will be disloyal to Australia. Some of those that have been here for generations have proven to be less than loyal to this country, and they have got away with it.
In many cases they are now deceased and can’t be held responsible for what they did in the past.
