Centre Alliance MP Rebekha Sharkie and Labor MP Justine Keay have stepped down to join Labor senator Katy Gallagher, after the High Court found Ms Gallagher ineligible to sit in the Parliament due to her dual citizenship.

There is still a push from some people for more scrutiny of section 44(v). If that gathers pace it will cheer them up even more.

There's been talk about Turnbull calling an election as early as July. I think they'll wait now to see how they fare in the coming by-elections, likely to be held in June.

Will this citizenship fiasco never end?...I am hoping that Shortens assertions that there were no such problems in Labor might see him ousted as leader. Much as I would like to see the Libs tossed out at the next election, I could not, in good conscience, cast a vote that might inflict Shorten as Prime Minister on Australia.

I don't care for Shorten either, but I don't want to see the current government returned again. I'll be voting Greens (surprise!). If Labor sees its support leaching to the Greens, it might give them a jolt. It definitely needs reminding of how far it's moved away from its traditional values.

Shorten seems to show lack of leadership, but may just consider the best way of getting in to power is to let the opposition self destruct. :icon_biggrin:
The Greens will get my vote too, with any preferences going to Sustainable Australia Party, Save the Planet Party (who if not registered put up an Independant) and similar small parties. Not the Socialist parties, as I think the support of more centrist parties is necessary to develop a UBI, which I think has to happen.

Well, Fred Nile is still alive.

BTW, my daughter, Abigail Boyd, has just secured second spot on the NSW Greens upper house ticket for the March state election.

The ludicrous side of this citizenship fiasco is that we have to go to by-elections but the incumbents often have by now fixed their citizenship issue and as with the likes of John Alexander and Barnaby Joice, will probably be re-elected. Simply a giant (and expensive) merry go round with no real result or change in the status quo. Naturally, we the taxpayers suffer all the cost and inconvenience of having to vote yet again. Is it any wonder that the average Aussie HATES our politicians?
