If it is legal to have dual citizenship at all, it should be legal to hold a parliamentary position with it.

Yes Sherri, but I take it that the other Nationality is that of New Zealand... If it were of some other country with a less benign relationship, would you still feel the same? Just wondering? :lol:

And how do you come to that conclusion from my post, andy?

In actual fact, I don't support dual citizenship. I wouldn't make Australian citizenship compulsory for migrants (and it isn't now either), but dual citizenship is a bad idea for the country. But while it is legal, as long as politicians have Australian citizenship as one of theirs, then it is odd to expect them to stand down.

You haven't observed closely enough.
You're incorrect.

But it's interesting, at least you're admitting you were having a random go, not actually answering my post.
That's something I have observed. Sometimes you respond according to what you think a person is like without taking much notice of what they actually say.

So you should.
You said:

You only got 1 out of 3 of your observations right & in my classroom that's a fail.

You say you have been observing for 15 years. You never picked up I am not and have never been protestant?

I'm not worried about skin colour.

You got the part about expecting our MPs to be able to speak English right though. Seriously, you think that's unreasonable??

I also expect MPs to be Australian citizens. I wouldn't mind if we went further & like the US, insisted our PMs were native born as well.

He shouldn't be classed as a Kiwi just because his old man was born there.

But I wouldn't vote for him & he's a real d1ckhead.

He's selling out the very people he claims to represent & where he has come from ... the man on the land.

Marvelous what a sling from big business does.
Nappies & Politicians should be changed often. Both for the same reason.
I don't have an attitude I have a personality you can't handle.
