    Good read.

    If your father comes from NZ, surely you would just check it.

    Something's truly missing in the Nats vetting process. Or a case of pure arrogance

    Either way, I'm still chortling along. Thanks Coalition!

    Delicious irony that the one nation senator is a dirty f**king migrant.

    Go back to your own country Malcolm

    That would seem to suggest he knowingly was in breach at the time of his nomination.

    India?

    I'm sure the Coolies would love the return of Pasha Malcolm.

    What an odious, dishonest sack of shit.

    Unfortunately it is a representation of a part of this great country that people like him are elected.

    All of this made me realise that as their mother had not become an Aussie at the time of their birth, both of my children are f**king kiwis too.

    That's a harsh AF thing to have to realise.

    I'm off to Surelys pub to drown my sorrows in a kiwi free environment.

    What I don't get is this. My Mum was born in NZ so I always knew I was entitled to things like a NZ passport I never followed through with it, but I always knew there could be other implications having a foreign born parent even if it is just NZ. (you used to be able to vote in either countries elections!) If Barnaby knew his dad was born in NZ how would he not at least check it out? Seems like a no-brainer to me and something I would check if I had to apply for a role demanding sole Aussie citisenship.

    Odd that the ALP haven't been pinged yet, maybe their vetting processes are a lot better.

    Yet....

    Surely they have f*cked it up as well somewhere along the way.

    They are saying their process in this regard are thorough.

    It wouldn't be all that hard.

    You wouldn't think so.. But the other parties managed to f*ck it up so easily and labor are pretty good at f*cking things up too.

    You'd also think by now every one of them has been thoroughly re checked just in case..
