Just ignore doto and don't bring him up in this thread, he thrived on the attention last time and it made everything so much fucking worse.

In B 4 boto becomes DETOX's latest recruit.

You blokes have some weird rules. For a nation of immigrants, the idea that dual citizens cant hold office is a bit fwarken odd.

It's not odd at all.  Ask yourself how you would feel if an MP was found to be an undisclosed secret citizen of say, Russia? Or China or Iran or Libya?

The rule is simple, clear and sensible because we can't risk having law makers  being potentially loyal to a foreign power.  ANY foreign power. Friendly or not.

I think equating citizenship to allegiance is flawed: There's a long list of people who have sold out their countries to foreign powers; and I think it also risks oversimplifying the whole concept.  

true, members of parliament shouldn't be under the influence of a foreign power, but I suspect a more immediate risk is simply trust in general.

So if they give up their dual citizenship and keep their aussie one they can rule forever? 

They needed to give up their dual citizenship before running in the election iirc.

Not necessarily. Its only flawed if the debate about being under the influence of a foreign power being solely on having a dual citizenship or not, which it isn't and hopefully won't be.

So i have now given up my swedish passport

World has changes, seems like a pretty pointless rule unless they do something along the line of what the US has,

have to be born as a US citizen?

IIRC, thats only the President. 

And yeah... Its a bit silly. If holding a second passport invalidates you, but being a non-natural citizen doesnt, then Manics logic doesnt really hold up. How is one in any significant way different to the other when it comes to potential mixed allegiance?

Considering how many Australian politicians are basically puppets for the mining industry it does seem amusing that you would be concerned about a potential vague loyalty to another nation.

I mean loyalty to another nation or at least a significant lobby is an instant spot in the higher ranks of US politics these days.

Hey, guess what? The mainstream media has finally caught on that the current NBN is a piece of shit.

I was getting 250ms ping last night.... at the first hop after leaving the premises. Literally one hop and then this shitty expensive thing they dug up the street for is overloaded.

I had probably the worst weekend of playing tanks i've ever experienced.

I hate the game with a passion. Simply because it was once good and had great potential.

To play with the crap that it has been "developed" into just makes me sad.

I've pretty much stopped playing, seeing if some enthusiasm comes back at some point.

Been playing Warthunder tanks instead and not really caring too much about how well I do #Play4Fun
