In the light of the High Court decision that a number of MPís were elected illegally, Greens leader Richard Di Natale has called for an audit of all Federal politicians citizenship status. Given the cloud that is still hanging over the heads of many parliamentarians I would think the Coalition and Labor would welcome a chance to clear the air on this issue. Not so, both the major parties are opposed to any such investigation. The Coalition in particular who have lost their majority with the demise of Barnaby Joyce. Given that the President of the Senate, Liberal Stephan Parry was only flushed out at the eleventh hour, it begs the question how many other illegals are hiding under tables and in closets when it comes to their right to sit in Parliament.

Dear Paul,

Why have a witch-hunt and disrupt our parliament
even further over an archaic law that should be
removed. And hopefully will be - the sooner the
better.

Does no one else find it rather disturbing that we are
allowing an archaic British law dictate the functioning
of our parliament over dual citizenship while at the
same time we have a British born Head of State.

Why waste more of the Parliament's time? The Greens clowns just want to stir now that their ride on SSM is nigh over.

Work on the 'wicked' problems instead. Such as retirees and low income groups being forced out of inner urban areas to suit Chinese billionaire developers building expensive high rise apartments. See here,

'High-density living worse for environment than suburban sprawl, new study shows'

What about that mass immigration that lobs in the major metropolitan cities and costs taxpayers billions? But the Greens favour 'Open Door' immigration to 'solve' overpopulation in the Third World. More queues for Centrelink in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The Government's own Craig Kelly also believes that their should be an audit of ALL politicians. Abbott is not the only dissident in the Liberal Party.

The Deputy Leader of the Opposition is always spraying about non-Labor dual-citizen politicians. She must be pretty thick not to know that people are wondering how it is that Labor seemingly has no ineligible members in its ranks. It beggars belief that there are not some.

I note that Foxy has declared it 'archaic' to have pride in Australia by insisting on complete loyalty to the country. Her total unreality and ignorance of right and wrong is mind-boggling.

It is archaic for people to hang on to citizenship of countries that they felt compelled to leave.

Leave it alone, here come the racist calls.

Scenario.
A Muslim, an Arab, a Hindu whatever come to Australia and get citizenship, because most ethnic minorities tend to congregate in the same area they create a voting block that can be exploited. That block can be used to elect someone that is totally not representative of Australian as a whole country.

Citizenship can be bought.
Sure others can come up with other reasons.
