I know it has to go to referendum, simply stating that until it is changed the rules are black and white.

If you haven't done your due diligence and you get caught out that's your own fault.
It can be interpreted though and the HC has "weakened" the black and white text to allow dual citizens to be MPs if they've taken reasonable steps to divest themselves of it.

Xenophon and Canavon might have reasonable arguments but Barnaby is stuffed.
Having parents born in foreign nations, you'd think you'd have a look to see whether it's been conferred upon you.
NX seems to have considered whether he was Cypriot or Greek but not British. The question is whether being a British Overseas Citizen or whatever it is called is equivalent to being an actual citizen.
You'd think if he chased up Cyprus though they'd have directed him to the British. I suppose it's all heresay and he has to be taken at his word, of which a lot of people have a hard time doing with politicians.

Being a lawyer, a former law lecturer at South Aust. U and failed Liberal Candidate in SA, you would think he would of known.

I did like his stunt at the British Pub in North Adelaide where he asked for a pint of warm English beer. He drank some and said words like "Oh that's awful". The beer was Guinness. Nick off Xenophony.

My question remains. Why is there one law for one person and another law for others
One can remain unidentified , but the other can't.
All in the name of a fantasy figure in the sky.
or is it that there are votes in letting Muslims supposed customs over ride The rules that others have to abide by?
Is it actually 'illegal' to wear a motorcycle helmet in banks?

Or is it simply a term of entry the banks use where they will refuse service?

Pretty sure it's the second one, the same applies for servos IIRC.

I'm not sure which it is, but it doesn't matter which, the same rules/ law should exist,for all.
