ttbn, after the spectacular failure of your 'Great White Hope' Cory Bernardi, maybe you can hitch your wagon to the Three Stooges George, Matt and Barney.

I don't have much of a problem with this ruling, as it does not apply to everyone with aboriginal blood only those accepted into an aboriginal community as aboriginal. I see it as being accepted as an aboriginal "citizen" parallel to the normal citizenship.

However, I do see the risk of this being abused.

SM,

There are no forms of parallel citizenship in Australia. There used to be a perverted form of that concept in South Africa :) It was called 'Apartheid'.

So now another criminal has claimed the right, as someone of Indigenous ancestry, not to be deported. He claims to have Tasmanian ancestry but nobody in Tasmania seems to agree. Perhaps Minister Wyatt will vouch for him too. Or some organisation will quickly sign him in.

Family trees, genealogies, registers: they do seem to be becoming more necessary by the week.

Joe

LM,

The dual level of citizenship has been in place for decades with native title, it just hasn't been addressed as such before. If the 3rd house of parliament gets established, the process will be complete.

In Aus everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others.
