Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Outspoken Muslim Member of the Lower House, Labor’s Anne Aly, has been keeping a low profile since she notified the House last year that she had sent a request to Egyptian authorities to nullify her nationality 10 days before the close of nominations for her seat of Cowan.

Well, well, well, it would take a miracle to get a letter to the Egyptians and get a judgment and confirmation reply back to Ms Aly within ten days. And if that unlikely miracle had occurred she would have been shouting it from atop Black Mountain. 

But there as been no shouting from Ms Aly, in fact there has been a deathly silence.

No shouting either from many others who should not be sitting in there.

On each occasion today Labor has said, “the High Court’s new interpretation, etc etc”. “The High Court’s new decision…”. “The High Court’s new precedent ruling…”.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!

The High Court has ruled in exactly the same way as it had ruled last year, and Shorten and his useless shadow Attorney General Dreyfus, told all their Members to sit tight, while both were saying the thorough vetting of their members was beyond reproach.

There could now be a dozen or more by elections rendering the Parliament inoperable in the interim.

As I said in the latest article, “…if the law is followed a (general) election could be closer than they think”.  


There seems to be a rumor floating around that one Michela Cash has said that there would NEVER be a court case against Juliar Gillard,because she is a former Prime Minister.This then proves that ALL Politicians are above the law.No wonder"Little Johnny Howard"took away our guns.And now half the"Cowardly,Lying,Do Nothing,Career Politicians"are ineligible to sit in Parliament.Time to clean out these"Low Lifes"

This is what Your Government have imported to walk among your Children.......With the Compliments of Islam...Killings in
the Name of Islam:
This is part of the list of killings in the name of Islam maintained by Most of these incidents are terror attacks. A handful are honor killings or Sharia executions.
During this time period, there were 143 Islamic attacks in 23 countries, in which 822 people were killed and 993 injured.
(TROP does not catch all attacks. Not all attacks are immediately posted).

Any credibility the Shortone had (which is between nil & zero) has been permanently shredded. He almost snuck in at the last election on the back of his outrageous lie about the LNP dumping Medicare but all he did was scare the old ladies. Imagine how far backwards Australia would be IF he had got in......... Although I detest the crooked Turd, at least he is economically literate, unlike the Labor economic "team" who will pile on taxes & debt & new "arrivals."

DK, it goes back much further back than the current dual citizenship debacle. A large proportion of PP readers are in the older age bracket and they wouldn't need Google to recall dual citizenship issues in parliament over the years. Look what eventually happens when they don't do anything about it at the time - pollies chose to look the other way each time until now when they saw some political advantage in doing something about it. No wonder pollies are in a category worse than used car salesmen. With your nomination form it would appear that you may have made a false declaration at the time in regard to not being a citizen of a foreign power (as did those caught up in the current debacle). It says on the nomination form that "Giving false or misleading information is a serious offence" - but then again that doesn't mean much as the only penalty seemingly received by those caught out is to lose their place on the gravy train. Incidently, were you a painter and paperhanger?
They’ve known. For decades. The alarm sounded over and over and over again. They just chose to ignore it and now, once again, are crying out that the Constitution needs to be changed because they failed to observe a very clear law in the first place.

Imagine being married to the creature on Conroy's right!

Do these cretins go into Parliament, because they can't fill out an application form for a real job?

This is the letter Anne Aly issued today.
Looks pretty watertight.

Labor did mean to have all those dual citizenship members. Tony Burke said so, and he's no berk, or maybe he is. Anyway, he said the ALP had vetting procedures in place. Somehow they didn't work. It must be the fault of the Egyptian Post Office.

No Election yet. Dragging these recalcitrants into the light one by one is the best political theatre I have been able to watch for years. The stunned mullet frightened face on Shorten every time one gets dragged out - is priceless. So much so that Bill is joining the drag them out and prove it posse - quite oblivious to how stupid that makes him look.

Bloody ridiculous and outdated rule, and yet they have to swear allegiance to the bloody Queen of England to get sworn in....... CRAZY.

DK, when you signed the declaration on your nomination form did you know that you were signing to the fact that you were constitutionally and legally qualified to be elected? Did you look into what that really means and not just rely on the AEC saying that you had to be an Australian citizen and that was it.

The AEC says that if you have any doubts you should seek your own legal advice as to whether you are qualified to nominate. I doubt if some of those disqualified have done that and just signed the nomination form unwittingly or maybe they signed it knowing that that they weren't really eligible but were willing to take a chance on not being found out. These days the rewards of being a pollie are too great for them to resist - especially if the penalties in existence for false declarations aren't being applied to them when they are found out.

Pollies are there to make laws and if they don't understand the entry rules then what hope is there that they understand what they are voting on in parliament?

Candidate Declaration Form 60

Candidate statement and declaration
Please read the candidate statement and declaration carefully before signing the nomination form.

Your attention is drawn in particular to section 44 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia:

Any person who:
(i) is under any acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or a citizen of a foreign power; or
(ii) is attainted of treason, or has been convicted and is under sentence, or subject to be sentenced, for any offence punishable under the law of the Commonwealth or of a State by
imprisonment for one year or longer; or
(iii) is an undischarged bankrupt or insolvent; or
(iv) holds any office of profit under the Crown, or any pension payable during the pleasure of the Crown out of any of the revenues of the Commonwealth; or
(v) has any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in any agreement with the Public Service of the Commonwealth otherwise than as a member and in common with the other members of an
incorporated company consisting of more than twenty-five persons;

shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a
member of the House of Representatives.

Shorten is now in election mode and already reminding us that Turnbull can not win an election campaign regardless of what the polls say. Turnbull must move the conversation away from big business tax cuts to immigration and power prices or suffer humiliation at the hands of Shorten and his union mates. Any extra tax cuts that Shorten offers will not cover the increase in power prices.

Very simple action to stop this illegal activity - any MPs found to have dual citizenship, then the leader of the party is banned from politics for life and loses all benefits immediately!

Could be a good time to push a few bills through the house over the next six weeks and get some runs on the board.

Do these law breakers get to keep their salaries, perks and super entitlements if they have accrued? Surely they should have to be repaid and the benefits stripped if obtained by an illegal act or conduct. If that is the case, then the government of the day must take action without fear or favour. Was Gillard a dual citizen?

Tim Hammonds excuse for leaving parliament using that well worn excuse for family reasons seems suss

rumor has it round the pub Labor has found new lawyers after getting such bad advice on the dual citizenship saga

if they want to be politicians then bugger off back to where they come from. Mathias Cormann is the first who should fuck off.
Clearly a highly intelligent dude, could be a politician anywhere on earth that he wants too, and that is the problem. He is a professional Politian not our politician not an Australian politician, how people are that stupid that they vote for this wog, has me fucked.
What ties him to Oz, is every decision he makes in our interest or his own?
Wake up before it is too late.

This aly piece of work wanted to make it blasphemes to even talk about Islam. She wants Islamic take-over and should not be in her position. It seems like the brain devoid idiot could bet the boot. Great for Australia I say.
