Not my fault

Parliament is in chaos, thankfully Game of Thrones has told us chaos is a ladder, but not everyone can climb it.

I asked Abbott about his citizenship, for that I was ridiculed, called a birther, had death threats and the AFP parked up the street for 3 months watching my comings and goings from my own house.  I didn't just ask Aussie Tone, I asked every foreign born MP and so few bothered replying.

Others asked, 400,000 on Facebook became very vociferous with the key board asking about Tony Abbott.  Change dot org had a petition with 33,000 petitioners signing it.

I even discovered the wonders of petitions to parliament, I asked about Abbott and was told that we voters should trust MPs to tell the truth when they nominate.  I asked for an audit of citizenship for MPs and Senator Cormann couldn't be bothered answering the petition.  3 petitions in about 10 years have not been answered by ministers, the audit one, one asking about Abbott's mum signing his citizenship application and another that the petitions committee talk about but I cant find.

Senator Ryan as the new Special Minster of State ignored a submission to the inquiry into the 2016 election asking for amongst other things  an audit of citizenship compliance and for Senator Roberts to be checked for compliance.  Senator Ryan didn't bother so the chaos kicked in properly when Senator Ludlam & Waters who I had asked in 2014 both quit for being dual citizens.  And then the Village Idiot Roberts declared he would go to the High Court to determine if he was a dual citizen or not.

Senator Ryan is off sick, I believe it is stress after a recent medical procedure and may be compounded by incompetence and the chaos in parliament, but surely it sits with Senator Cormann who refused to answer a petition.  Just ignored it.  Who was he protecting? How many others will go?

The bastard birther has put another petition to parliament and this time the Attorney General must answer it.



And on telly while I am writing this Billy Bhoy Shorten the Abbott apologist has decided that there shouldn't be an audit because it is up to the individual. This wannabee next Prime Minister was the first person in the country to block me on social media for daring to ask him to ask about Abbott's citizenship.  It took Ludlam & Waters and a UK court case to finally determine Abbott has renounced his British citizenship, but he should have answered when asked back in 2013.


We need an audit of all MPs because the option is to trust MPs to tell the truth when they nominate.  And that hasn't worked at all so far.  The petition is there, the audit must happen and everyone must show they comply with the law.

It doesn't stop there. Legislation needs to be changed to allow the Australian Electoral Commission to demand proof of compliance at nomination instead of waiting for disasters in parliament.

Access to the Court of Disputed Returns must be made available to any voter in the country, not just limited to the voters in a particular electorate.  The time limit for CODR must also be changed so that the court can be accessed by voters at anytime instead of just withing 40 days of the election being called.

Postscript to The End is Nigh

The one before this, The End is Nigh discusses a letter Mr Abbott posted on twitter purporting to be proof of his renouncing his British citizenship.

On the day he posted that letter on twitter I lodged an FOI request at the UK Home Office asking for a copy of the form RN and the receipt he paid to renounce his British citizenship.  This was to tidy up the saga and add them to everything I had on my searching for the truth.  The link to the request is here.

Ten days later I got a reply saying

Freedom of Information request (our reference: 44642) 
Thank you for your e-mail of 14 July 2017, in which you ask for information regarding
Anthony John Abbott.  Your request has been handled as a request for information under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and can be viewed in full in the accompanying
Annex A.

I can confirm that the Home Office does not hold this information.


All can be found in the link above or read the screen cap below.




Zebedee and the Magic Roundabout sort of fits in nicely with this whole fiasco of Tony Abbott's citizenship.  What is Senator Ryan doing? He is the Special Minister of State responsible for all things election.  An audit of S44 compliance must happen quickly and the Australian Electoral Commission must be allowed to demand proof at nomination time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For a year or two there have been appeal processes going on in the UK because the UK Home Office refused to release information about Mr Abbott's compliance with the Australian constitution.  The matter went through an internal appeal, an Information Commissioner appeal and for a long while the First Tier Tribunal, a judges only court process to determine once and for all what is what.  I sent a copy of that dodgy Abbott twitter letter and for nearly three weeks we in the court process, the ICO, the Tribunal and myself have been waiting for the UK Home Office to determine if the letter is factual.  It is.  I received this reply from the Tribunal today (2/8/17)




So congratulations Mr Abbott, welcome to okkerdom, you are a fair dinkum Aussie.  I am not, I still have my dual British Australian citizenships.

The end is nigh

Tony Abbott posted this in his twitter feed yesterday after Senator Ludlam announced he was a dual citizen and resigning from parliament.   Former Prime Minister Paul Keating was also on twitter calling for an audit of S44 compliance after Mr Ludlam's resignation announcement and he coyly included Mr Abbott's twitter tag.  Senator Hinch did the same.  A few minutes after Mr Ludlam's announcement I emailed my local MP Andrew Wallace asking if he would push for an audit of S44 and mentioned how things were going in the court case in the UK which is demanding the UK Home Office release information about Abbott. An hour after my email to Wallace Abbott releases the information.  Me or Keating or Hinch or guilt LOL  It's all about me init?







The UK Court people were sent a copy of the letter Abbott posted on twitter and told if this matches the information the UK Home Office refuses to confirm or deny, then cancel the court process.

Would have been much better had Abbott replied to my email in 2013 or if he had replied to the FOI requests, one saying the FOI would be refused the other saying the information doesn't exist. Would have been much better had he replied to Terri Butler MP's letter or to Senator Nash's letter coincidentally sent about the same date on this letter, January 2015.

Would have been much better had Senator Cormann had answered a hidden petition asking for an audit of S44 compliance.

An audit of S44 compliance was also asked for in submission to the Joint Select Committee on Electoral Matters just after the 2016 election.  That submission has been ignored by Senator Ryan but maybe now he will look at the audit and allow the Australian Electoral Commission to ask questions about S44, query compliance with S44 and prosecute breaches of S44.

All over red rover.

As a PS it really is an embarrassment that 3 of our elected officials are removed from parliament because they couldn't be bothered checking if they comply with our constitution, even more so that Senators Ryan and Cormann think we the voters should just trust them to tell the truth.

OR

The misogyny is strong in this one


Just after Tony Abbott was elected Prime Minister I started to look at him being British and found he and I were born in the same year in the same country. Both of us were economic refugees with our families fleeing the wastes of early 60's England.

I tried to find out more about his birth and conversion to being Australian. I had had to become Australian because of my public service career but I was allowed to be a dual national. After hearing the fuss over Julia Gillard I knew he had to have renounced his Britishness but nothing was written anywhere about when it had happened. So I looked, got ignored, got lied to, got threatened, got blocked on social
media by so many politicians. Senator Nash a member of his own government and Terri Butler MP actually wrote to him to clear the matter up. Parliamentary rules say MPs must communicate and PM’s more so but they were women and didn’t count in his minds eye.

It took Scott Ludlam a dual national Kiwi Aussie and twitters from Paul Keating and Senator Hinch and maybe a phone call from my local MP Andy Wallace to get the obnoxious misogynist to recant and admit he weren’t no pommie no more. Bastille day turned into a real bastard for the member for Warringah.

I am personally glad it is over without another section 44 crisis in our parliament. There have been three this current parliament and that is three that need not have happened had Senator Cormann as Special Minister of State responded to a petition asking for an audit of S44 compliance in parliament.

There is a submission in the Joint Select Committee on Electoral Matters investigation of the 2016 election asking for an audit to be conducted and for the Australian Electoral Commission to be allowed to ask about S44, seek answers and prosecute if necessary.

Perhaps one good thing will come out of losing a good parliamentarian like Scott Ludlam? Maybe now MPs will read some of their emails and voters twitter and facebook threads to see what is going on in the world. Had Scott Ludlam read some emails he would have seen this little nutter's request for information on when he renounced his Kiwiness and he might also have seen the change.org petition which asked him to show he has renounced his Kiwidom. Being cloistered behind well meaning staff who kept the nutters at bay cost Senator Ludlam his job.

I am an obnoxious bastard with a massive ego so being ignored for so long has pissed me off but nowhere near as much as I am pissed off at members of our government being ignored by the supposed head of state. His misogyny is utterly amazing. It's no wonder his goal in life was to hide himself away in a kiddy botherers club well away from anyone who was ever female. He must have hated his mother to let her possibly incriminate herself by filling out his application for citizenship. He had just got a law degree and should have been able to read and understand the instructions on the form that an adult child must fill out their own application for citizenship by descent. That didn’t matter though,Ian McPhee was Minister for Immigration and got his law degree at the same Kelloggs packet factory as Abbott. More important than the old school tie was Liberal party membership and being a family fiend. Macca overlooked the untidy legal nicety and granted citizenship.

Because I am such an obnoxious bastard I had the bone and wasn't going to let it go. In the UK at the moment there is a First Tier Tribunal, a full blown judge only court system, looking at releasing information from the Home Office about Mr Abbott's British citizenship. I have sent them a copy of Mr Abbott's letter for them to decide if it matches their information on hand and cancel the court case if it matches. This came about because the Home Office firstly said they couldn't confirm Mr Abbott complies with our constitution and then they said they could neither confirm nor deny he had renounced his British citizenship.

About an hour before Mr Abbott released his renunciation papers I emailed one of the few MPs who read my emails, Andy Wallace, and mentioned that if the court in the UK finds he hasn't renounced they must under UK law advise MI5 that a problem may exist where a commonwealth country has been taken to war without authority by a British subject. Mr Wallace is a barrister so does know the law a bit. If you are the cause of the paper coming out, goodonya Andy Wallace.

The law wont work so we must trust MPs

In parliament 44 two petitions were lodged, one asking who was responsible for looking after S44 problems and queries and another asking Tony Abbott to show his renunciation of British citizenship papers.

Senator Cormann replied to both with the one letter.  Pixels must be in short supply over at parliament house.

The two petitions are here



The reply to these is

So Cormann had set the rules.  Trust an MP or got to the Court of Disputed Returns.  Trouble is no one believes MPs and Bob Day and Rod Culleton sort of prove why we should never trust politicians.  Add to that a few candidates who didn't win but with whom I spoke about S44 and there are real problems in believing people.  Dave Barrow in Abbott's own electorate was and wasn't and then was again Australian, British and then dual national. Barrow has blocked me and doesn't like me because I quoted his public blog with the information he asked me to keep private.  Mr Cohen from Tasmania senate election advised the world he was still a dual national because he forgot to renounce his British citizenship.  He was a lawyer.

Goodness knows how many more.

Court of Disputed Returns got stuffed up a bit when the bloke doing it was committed to a mental institution on the way to the High Court to lodge for the Court of Disputed Returns.  He was kept in for 3 months and doesn't know who put him there or why.  The Court of Disputed Returns mat work if you can avoid the Abbottistas and afford to run a High Court trial and live in the electorate, but for 99.1% of voters it just isn't going to happen.

So back to the petitions, doc Jensen a possible dual national and total waste of space brought in the e-petition system which is quite nifty.  Petition EN0038 was lodged and put in Hansard on 21 November 2016.



House of Parliament rules state a petition must be answered within 90 days of it being read into Hansard.

About 3 months after the Hansard entry I rang the Petitions Secretariat to find out how it was going, that's when I learnt Mr Vasta. Chair of the Petitions Committee had hidden it from parliament.  I emailed my Queensland senators and my local MP Mr Wallace asking for help.  Someone mentioned the other S44, Crimes Act 1914, Compounding an Offence.  Mr Vasta sort of got worried bot three years in jail so let the petition be given to Senator Ryan for response.  So much stuffing around and Scotty getting his staff to lie saying the petition hasn't been received and one silly player saying the petition, about Water Gate is it?

Ryan replied, he hadn't bothered reading the petition or asking Abbott, the cover up continued unabated.  we must trust nominees for election to parliament to tell the truth.  Amazing when you think about it, these are the people controlling the minutiae of our lives, creating laws to control us and all we can do is trust them?




Ryan hadn't even bothered telling the Petitions Committee of the response, one of the committee wrote to me advising the Petitions Committee said a response would be given to them on 31 May 2017 and presented to the House on 17 June 2017.






Feel comfortable next time you vote because it is our trust that keeps the bastards honest.

Drug testing for welfare recipients

Our beloved followers have decided to bring in testing of dole bludging scammers on welfare who also take drugs.


I wonder how these people in charge think junkies can afford to live on welfare?

The problem has been ongoing with the conservatives pushing to have everyone off welfare as soon as possible.  Last year in the Huffingtonpost B1 (Bronwyin Bishop, aka Helicopter Girl) and number 44 (aka Tony Abbott) were quoted saying that everyone on welfare are junkies taking drugs,  or so my quick skim of the article shows.  They quick skim and wiki report so why can't I? Number 44 says in Sky, where else?  We are creating welfare villages.

Centrelink, the government organisation that looks after welfare payments for this country.  Their random drug test paper is here

And says in part " This measure will trial the use of random drug testing in three locations as a way of better identifying and supporting those with substance misuse issues.
From 1 January 2018, 5,000 new recipients of Newstart Allowance (NSA) and Youth Allowance (other) will be subject to random drug testing in a two year trial."

Alan Tudge is the minister responsible for Human Services and the drug testing was brought in as a budget measure by Scott Morrison.  These are the two to blame.

And these are the two to ask if it is good enough for the junky dole bludging welfare scammers why not for the junky disabled pension scammers who get disability pensions for being drug addicts?  Disability pensions are based on a 20 point plan where people have to show they are so disabled on a list of 15 tables for impairment.  They really do put it all down to matching information on a table with your disability.  Drug addiction as well as alcohol addiction is a real cause for disability.
Tudge & Morrison why don't you test the 10% of disability penalty recipients who are on disability because of their drug addiction?  No idea of the number of disability pensioners on DSP for drug addiction but ten is a nice number.  Similarly those in charge have no idea how many people on welfare are taking drugs.  
To make things even and to keep up with my penchant for petitions I have lodged a petition with Mr Vasta, chair of the Petitions Committee, asking all MPs be tested for drug and alcohol every day they are in Canberra and at least twice randomly when they are out of Canberra. The problem is Mr Vasta hid petition EN0038 asking about Abbott's dual citizenship and a lot of Queensland senators and barrister MPs had to remind Mr Vasta of the Crimes Act 1914 section about compounding offences.  Once an EN number is allocated and the thirty days for signing the petition is begun I will post often on twitter and facebook with a link to it.
My rant is nearly over, I don't like my junky neighbours who are on disability pension for being junkies.  They still deal drugs and take drugs and fight over drugs and money for drugs and abuse people and bash each other and stand by off their tits as their daughter gets bashed.  But they are on a legal disability pension.
People on welfare don't do it as a choice.  It is far too expensive trying to live in this country without trying to pay for drugs too.

Tudge and Morrison if you do it for newstart and study recipients of welfare it should be done for MPs and for those disability pensioners who are on DSP because of drug addiction.  You can't just target the poorest monetarily, educationally and socially just to please the extreme right wing wankers in your party.

Will this be my last email to Tony Abbott?

Dear Mr Abbott

Last parliament, the 44th, Senator Cormann hid a petition that would have had you produce your renunciation of British citizenship papers.  This parliament Mr Vasta tried to do the same but a dozen Queensland senators and my local MP Mr Wallace convinced Mr Vasta that three years in jail may not be worth it for him.  He was concerned about the other Section 44 is in the Crimes Act 1914, called the Compounding Offences clause so released the petition for answer.

Again it took mention of the Crimes Act 1914 for Senator Ryan to change his story of never being given the petition by the Petitions Committee and so the answer is due in a week or so.

Will you wait for the senator to publish his response to the petition or will you put into Hansard a copy of your renouncement papers?

I didn't enjoy this chase, I didn't like being ignored by you, I didn't like being lied to by your senior staff and other politicians, I didn't like the contempt you showed to fellow parliamentarians in not even sending them an automatic reply to their letters asking you to show you comply with our constitution.  Ms Butler and Senator Nash wrote two pretty fine letters asking you as a fellow parliamentarian to show you comply with our constitution.  I didn't really like having to learn about FOIs, the constitution, immigration law, UK civil law, UK data protection, Australian data protection.  After 3 1/2 years you can basically thank Peta Credlin for my beginning to ask questions and to look and learn.  It has astounded me how arrogant you are and how ignorant of our laws.  You claim western civilisation is paramount, but the main tenet of western civilisation is the rule of law.


I look forward to your producing the documents, or your not producing the documents.  Either way is good for me.


kind regards

Tony Magrathea


PS would be loverly if your staff actually showed you the email, because I doubt very much has got through to you.

Do your own filthy work Senator Ryan

Petition EN0038 was presented to parliament and put in Hansard on 21st November 2016.  House rules say petitions must be answered within 90 days of being put in Hansard.

This one was hidden in the petition system by the Chair Mr Vasta.  He risked 3 yeas in jail to make sure Mr Abbott wasn't asked to show he complies with the constitution.  After I had found out the petition was hidden, it took calls to public servants in Parliament House to find that out because the information the petition had been hidden wasn't put on the web site, I wrote to my Queensland Senators and local MP Andrew Wallace Barrister-at-law.  They reminded Mr Vasta of the other S44, that in the Crimes Act 1914 which says things like hiding the petition could be construed as compounding an offence and worth 3 years in jail.

The petition was given to Senator Ryan on 15 February 2017 and a few days ago his staff told me they had never seen the petition.  Senator if you are going to lie to protect your mate Tony Abbott you too are probably in breach of S44 of the Crimes Act 1914 and could face 3 years in jail.  But don't ever put your staff in the postilion where they have to lie for you.  If your staff are party or public servant they must be protected from criminal prosecutions at all costs.  Asking them to break the law is disgraceful, even for a Liberal MP.

I wrote to my local MP and am slowly getting around to anyone who appears in public with Tony Abbott to remind them of the danger he puts them under.  Have a read and please feel free to send it to your local MP.

The two section 44s.
Constitution
Crimes Act

The petition and all of Mr Abbott's birth and citizenship papers have been posted throughout the blogs and at the bottom of this one.

The letter:-




Dear Mr Wallace

As a barrister you may have come across people who will do anything to cover up a possible crime.  I am finding the same with one of your parliamentary colleagues and many of his party mates.

In Parliament 44 Senator Cormann & Dr Jensen answered a petition asking Mr Abbott to show he complies with the constitution by telling parliament about the law.  And trust. The response said we the people should trust politicians when they tick the S44 compliance box on their nomination papers.  The AEC can't ask or check and they must believe candidates.  

Then Senator Cormann said if there was any other problem to use the Court of Disputed Returns.  That can only happen if I voted in Warringah, you are my local MP so obviously I cant go to the CODR.

The only other simple option is to ask MPs to ask questions.  My local MP at the time was Mr Brough and he didn't seem to want to have to do anything much let alone ask a question.  Ms Butler & Senator Nash did, they both wrote to Mr Abbott asking him to clear up the matter and show he complies with the constitution.  He didn't bother replying to either.

In the last 3 years I have had 6 death threats from various mouthy idiots on social media.  All have been referred to the AFP to do whatever they want with them.  I have asked the AFP to examine the possible problem, shortly after doing that my gmail account was hacked and everything irretrievably deleted and Mr Quaedvlieg got his promotion.  A coincidence I am sure.

I wrote to Mrs Bishop as Speaker and Senator Brandis as AG and nether bothered replying, in fact I have FOI proof Senator Brandis destroys my email about Mr Abbotts dual citizenship without referring to the AG department for answer.

I wrote to Mr Abbott's office asking how to lodge an FOI application and was told by Ms Credlin,who had decided to become FOI clerk, that if I lodged an FOI application it would be refused by her.

A petition was lodged with PM&C by another person and they were informed the renunciation papers do not exist.

The UK Home Office say they can not confirm Mr Abbott complies with our constitution.  They also said they could neither confirm nor deny he had renounced his British citizenship.  There is currently a court case in the UK to force the UK Home Office to say one way or the other.  I am running that by email unrepresented.  It seems they let you do that over there.

Another petition was lodged in this parliament, EN0038.  You helped get that from being hidden by Mr Vasta to being given to Senator Ryan for answer.  The petition was in Hansard 21/11/16 and should have been answered sometime in February.  Because Mr Vasta acted so unusually in hiding the petition it wasn't sent to the Senator until 15 February and due for response 16 May 2017.

I rang Senator Ryans office this morning and was told they have never received that petition and are claiming they should have 90 days from today to answer the petition.  I have sent him copies many times in the emails I have sent asking him to make sure he answers the petition, doesn't fob off the 1021 signatories with the law that doesn't work and to ensure he actually asks Mr Abbott for a copy of the renunciation papers.  the only way to get rid of British citizenship is to fill in a form and pay a fee, a very British thing to do.

Mr Abbott was born in London to a British father and Australian mother.  He got automatic British citizenship because that's the way the British law works.

He didn't bother getting Australian citizenship until the Rhodes Trust threatened to remove his scholarship.  A mad panic at Immigration saw his mother fill in the application forms and citizenship given to him on 2/8/81.  The date the minister approved the application is the date citizenship commences.  That gave him dual citizenship.  The form and Immigration rules say an adult child must fill out their own citizenship papers unless incompetent.  He had just got a Rhodes Scholarship so competence is not in question, the legality of his mother filling in the form may be though.

In October 1981 he entered Oxford as a British citizen, not as an Australian as is required under the Rhodes Trust.  Talking to students there with him at the time, the only reason for risking doing that would be to claim the UK students allowance on top of the scholarship.

I am a dual citizen like he is and that is what got me first asking him in the first place about when he renounced, he didn't bother replying.

You are in the party but you are also in parliament. Is the law the law for everyone or does party membership and sleeping with the AFP provide immunity for some?

Would you ask Mr Abbott to show his renunciation papers to Senator Ryan, parliament and me?

I have included copies of the petition, birth certificate,citizenship & Oxford FOI for you to look at.


I do hope you can do this for me as I have been messed around, threatened and lied to for more than three and a half years now.

Kind regards

Tony Magrathea
