"Turnbull says Scott Ludlam's citizenship oversight is 'remarkable'"
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-07-15/turnbull-speaks-about-scott-ludlams-exit-from-parliament/8712088

Introducing the imperious Mr Ludlum. Who would still be polishing a Senate seat were it not for a civic-minded barrister.

He has more front than Woolworths.

Is so slippery you can't keep your eyes on him.

Has a hide thicker than a NT buffalo.

He will be back, but of course...

Scott Numbnuts was a bitch to Bob Day when he was in the same position. This is Karma.

"Attorney-General George Brandis says he won’t be shedding any tears for former Greens senator Scott Ludlam following his resignation on Friday.

Senator Brandis indicated Mr Ludlam could be forced to repay his senator’s salary and allowances after running for the Senate at three elections despite still being a New Zealand citizen and therefore ineligible to hold office. “Mr Ludlam, as he now is and as it turns out always was, through his own negligence has got himself into this trouble,” Senator Brandis told Sky News.

“He knew he was born in New Zealand obviously when he stood for Parliament. He must be taken to have been aware of the constitution and yet he never took the trouble to ensure that he had relinquished his New Zealand citizenship.”

Senator Brandis said Mr Ludlam was a “very ungracious” colleague who had been “extremely mean spirited” towards former Family First senator Bob Day, who was forced to resign last year after becoming bankrupt. “I don’t think we should shed too many tears over the consequences of Mr Ludlam’s own negligence,” he said."

it is made plain in simple words in the Candidates Handbook and in application forms.

It will be interesting who steps forward to shield and excuse, or even criticise the rules. Or to dump on the publicly spirited whistleblower, who should get an Australian Honour for acting to protect the Constitution and democracy.

One can only imagine what action any government of the day would be taking against a claimant for benefits, an ordinary member of the public, who broke the rules for nine years, pocketing large sums in the process.

This article came across my computer the other day. Quite sobering where our society is going. Perhaps the players should ber banned for life committing these offences. But Read on!

WHICH SPORT IS WORST HAVING:

36 have been accused of spouse abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad cheques
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71, repeat 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 currently are defendants in lawsuits and
84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is? AFL? NRL?
Give up yet? . . .. . Scroll down

Neither,

It's the 535 members of the
AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT in CANBERRA

The same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year, designed to keep the rest of us in line
