    He could just refuse to resign until the high court makes their decision, when kicked out state he thought this would happen then stand for re election and declare it all a witch hunt by inner city wankers

    Don't be absurd. That would never happen.

    The man who set in motion the Australian citizenship scandal that has now claimed five political careers says he expects more heads will roll.

    WA lawyer John Cameron outed Greens MP Scott Ludlam as a New Zealand citizen in July this year, leading to an eventual constitutional crisis for the Australian Government.


    Senator Ludlam’s resignation resulted in the status of numerous other politicians being questioned, which culminated in Friday’s High Court Decision disqualifying five Federal MPs, including Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce.

    In months that followed Senator Ludlam’s resignation Mr Cameron has kept his silence, but following the court’s decision has explained his motivation to dig into the background of Australia’s representatives.

    Mr Cameron, who voted for Senator Ludlam, applied with the New Zealand Internal Affairs Department to search its register for the Greens senator, and found he was in fact a citizen.

    While Mr Cameron said he was “invariably surprised” at how quickly the citizenship scandal had snowballed, he expects more politicians will fall foul of section 44 of the Australian constitution in coming months.

    “There will be others,” Mr Cameron told AAP, just hours after the Australian High Court disqualified Mr Joyce and four other MPs on Friday afternoon.

    “This opens up a huge can of worms,” he said from Perth.

    Mr Cameron said that of the additional MPs he expected would lose their jobs, many would be British citizens.

    While not religious, Mr Cameron said a prayer was his principal motivation to pursue to the citizenship story.

    “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.”

    Mr Cameron said the prayer motivated him to make sure he would change what he could.

    “There are those in Parliament who think that they are above the law. A correction is required,” he said.

    To be honest as the funky bunch are in power and with the thin margin they have it potentially means a bit more for them to lose an MP or two than the ALP

    Plus Feeney is nowhere near as high profile as Barnaby

    Massive fail James.

    That's pretty shoddy even for you!

    So it would appear

    My apologies, and well done on your reasonable stance on this issue. May it develop to other topics

    It was evidence of how incompetent the Libs were, and how Labor were much better at vetting or something, wasn't it?

    Clearly they are given the disparity in numbers so far.

    And still think the Northern Tablelands and New England are the same thing.
