Australia’s citizenship crisis continues

Fifteen. That’s how many Australian politicians have been forced to resign thanks to their laws stating that you can’t hold dual citizenship and be a politician. 

Laws like this are, quite frankly, stupid.

Just because your parent was an immigrant, and you still hold the privilege and benefit of being a dual citizen, doesn’t mean you are any less qualified to serve as a politician.

As Australia becomes more multicultural, you’re going to end up with more and more cases like this.

And cases like this are going to result in costly by-elections.

So as well as make just general sense to repeal the law, it also makes economic sense to repeal the law.

Hopefully Australia will do that soon.
