Turmoil ‘Down Under’: no-one injured!

Seems as though some members of the Australian Federal Parliament are having to scramble to explain why they haven’t followed the rules of dual-citizenship. Two Green senators have bitten the bullet, more are definitely up for scrutiny, and the whole balance of power within Government is possible to change.

 

I wonder when someone will find out that Jeremy Corbyn is actually a citizen of Planet Zog, and has lived in heavy disguise for his entire Parliamentary career?

 

Alternatively, Theresa May is actually a man, as well as being a voting citizen of Poland. On second thoughts, better not Poland, she/he might be able to command a working majority, and pass some right-wing legislation, such as banning all Muslims from entering UK, like the actual Poles do.

    Joking apart, the Aussies consider it serious that their legislators should owe no loyalty, real or implied, to any other state. That strikes me as only sensible.

    Perhaps we should follow suit – a list of all members of both the Commons and Lords who have dual-nationalities could be very revealing (and potentially embarrassing).

    We require ‘declarations of interest’ from them covering financial matters but don’t seem to require it for matters of loyalty, a rather more fundamental issue for legislators, some may think.

    Start with all who are citizens of the EU. Ah, yes, I see. OK then, all who have loyalty to/ financial grants from/pensions in said excrescence.

      How cruel to Messrs Mandelson, Clegg and Kinnock etc. to suggest that their loyalties to Britain may be compromised by the more than ‘thirty pieces of silver’ they pocket every month from their scheming masters overseas.
      And we could also include the whole BBC for quietly accepting many millions from that same corrupt and corrupting organisation to ensure positive coverage across its channels.

        Those are just the surface of the iceberg. There must be many thousands of journalists and bureaucrats across the country with stars in their eyes – yellow stars, natch – as they dream of pleasant jobs with fat pensions working for the EU. No wonder so much sand is being thrown into the mechanism of Brexit.
        PS. Sorry if going off topic Mike, already had a belly laugh reading Jo Nova’s take on this. It may be that, since New Zealand has given all Ausies the rights of citizens, then none are eligible for Parliament. And with no Parliament there is no-one to change the constitution …
