In common-sense Australia it is illegal to stand for or engage in public office if you hold ‘dual nationality’. Many Australians are unaware they hold dual nationality as becoming naturalised as an Australian citizen, is not enough on its own, to escape this disqualification. A person must also take all reasonable steps to renounce their foreign citizenship.
In the spirit of British Democratic Party thinking, I am sure all will agree that this obvious ‘Australian’ constitutional ruling should be applied to members of our Houses of Parliament, Mayors and Councillors.
No dual nationality person should be dealing with the affairs of our country and people.
We appreciate this will require major changes to the laws of our land, but feel it is only right and proper that we govern our own country with people who owe exclusive loyalty to our nation and people.
