Well thankfully it would never have entered my Mum,s mind, or any of the family for that matter, to change anyone,s citizenship !  We all like being Aussie too much.

interestingly, dual citizenship rules dont apply to state mp's, its the federal constitution that says you cant serve parliament as a dc holder.

I can't imagine a person of 18 or more, could have their nationality changed by another person.

The remedy is simple.

We should make dual citizenship illegal.Thumbs Up

If you are an Aussie and want to be a citizen elsewhere - good luck, off you go, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way! 

... rescind your Australian Citizenship and all of the benefits that go with it ... simple!

Likewise, if you apply and are lucky enough to be granted Aussie Citizenship (and the test needs to be MUCH tougher) you must immediately rescind any other citizenship.

You are either here to stay, or a visitor, simple, easy, no confusion for dumb politicians.Big smile

Sorry this party in one I would never vote for anyway.  They think they are right on so many things which break people.  A cousin in the country on 25 acres has been told to fence a creek as the sheep might poo in it!  Um, the sheep need to drink and it rains and the poo is in the creek anyway.  They don't live in the county but think they know how everyone should live!

Well they don't.  Like the rest of us they muddle along and can't see the hurt they are causing.

This is so sad as so many things need to be done and they concentrate on the mundane stupid rules which are breaking people.

I'm sick of this modern world.  I wan't to go back to when we helped each other went times got tough.  When we didn't judge someone because their house was simple and they didn't have a car.  When we could trim back a tree without being taken to court.

Every time they think up a new law things just get worst!  Don't judge people unless you've lived their life and struggled through every day with them.  We all have our good points and bad but you just have to let people be different (well not the murdering types I agree) and live on a house boat, in a tree, underground etc.  

And we also have to remember the accidents we have before judging that a parent already heartbroken over a childs accident may of only turned away for a split second.  I've done that with mine and luckily didn't pay a heavy price.  Some of the things they tell me they got up to scare the living daylights out of me - but I didn't know at the time.  I got lucky.  Don't jump on someone who didn't have that luck.  But the modern texts etc seem to jump on and have their say about things they know next to nothing about.  They drive people to suicide who are already broken.

I'll get one in November max getting a short visit to NZ studs.  Hope the rain stops before then!  

Sorry to sound so down but boy the wrong people just keep getting stomped on these days.  I know I can't help them all,  I know I'm powerless, but that doesn't make the feeling go away.  I'm crying inside for a friend who is totally broken at the moment and the modern world couldn't care less about her.  But unfortunately I'm not built that way.

Quite the opposite- they are miserable gits. Correct me if I'm wrong- this may have been corrected since I last paid attention but then the Pom policy was to pay the pension to those living overseas not indexed to inflation- e.g. you start on the 1983 rate of pension you're on the 1983 rate of pension for life. So you're going backwards every year

 2006 Canavan became an Italian citizen after mum allegedly got the whole family Italian citizenship. 

2007 dad went to prison after being caught a along with another accountant for embezzling an estimated $1.6m from Nestle. 

Coincidence, or was someone doing a runner?

I am opposed to dual citizenship full stop- always have been. Based mainly on my Yankee relatives who pay no Australian tax but can avail themselves of Medicare if things get bad.

For a while thought the Red Terror was the most inappropriate politician in Australia.But after the un-argued and unpopular decentralisation move of APVMA to his own electorate, then Canavan and lastly Murray Darling, Barnaby Joyce must surely now wear the undisputed Crown.  Dead

If the Italians can produce his application, and it is unsigned, it appears a significant "clerical error".

SENATOR Matt Canavan has been listed on the Registry of Italians Residing Abroad and Italian voting forms were automatically sent to him at his mother’s address for the past 10 years.

But the rising LNP star, who resigned from Cabinet on Tuesday due to the dual citizenship scandal, yesterday reiterated he has never received or even viewed a ballot.
