HALF THE HOUSE LIKELY INELIGIBLE… IT’S TIME FOR AN ELECTION!
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, “…a (general) election is closer than they think”.
