Just as the pollies pull their snouts out of the trough to fess up re citizenship, we await potentially one which could impact the outcome of the Qld election. An article from the BBC in 2010 re Pauline Hanson.

Regardless of which side of the political spectrum you sit, having members whose eligibility is in question voting on matters such as penalty rates and denying a banking RC is pretty poor.

Remember that it is not that the snouts in the trough, it is the length of the snout.

Another link to a Telegraph UK article. The last line re Pauline Hanson. What a disgrace when the is no certainty about the legitimacy of our Parliament. I guess the GG is too busy enjoying his knighthood and all the functions which go with the office!

Well today after a few marathon sittings considering about 144 amendments the Bill was finally passed. It now has to go to the Lower House where we are assured it will have an easy passage. The devil is in the detail...

And this is precisely why a referendum should be called. It's quite clear we cannot rely on politicians to do basic due diligence and fill out some paperwork correctly.

And these clowns run the country and we seem to be relatively unfazed by their apparent lack of detail.

Cultured Bogan: John Wayne would never use a surge protector!

Reminds me of guys who use ladies of the night but refuse to use latex protection???

You sound like the opposite of Abraham - hearing no evil, seeing no evil and speaking no evil. Abe even sees evil hopping across the field.

You do realize the majority of Governor Generals in Australia's history were British?

No. But my concern is we appear to have a number of Senators or MPs who are ineligible under our constitution yet have voted on matters such as removing penalty rates or have prevented a banking RC being instituted.

These politicians have by law to take due diligence and make full disclosure in regards to dual citizenship .These parasites have not done this and trashed our constitution they should be stripped of all pensions and wages from the day they took office illegally and be disqualified from running for office in the future.There would be a very small percentage that have been caught honestly.

Not nearly as much as when you put a bullet ear to ear through a roos head and you get great pleasure out of it.

What about the trunk like length of Xenophon putting himself on the payroll as a staffer to one of his federal Senators whilst he is setting himself up for the SA election.

Contrarily to what Cultured Bogan states surely I deserve a mention by Bloodhound Gang but
with my dementia setting in I am not sure what I can remember. I may have to request Abe to euthanise me. I hope he gives the roos a chance to go to Confession before opening up with his six guns with surge protection.
