risking it, Brandis again
Hon Senator Brandis, Attorney General
you are my Queensland senator as well as being the Attorney General.
I am writing to you to ask you to refer Mr Abbott to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters with regards to his failure to renounce his British citizenship.
Section 44 of out constitution says federal members of parliament can not have dual citizenships.
The Australian Electoral Commission can not ask a candidate about their citizenships, they can advise that by signing the candidates declaration that they are stating they comply with S44 of the constitution they can not then ask for proof. They have to believe the word of a political candidate,a future or current politician.
I have been advised by public servants that Senator Ronaldson can change the rules for the AEC by Ministerial Decree to allow them to examine citizenships, he refuses to answer my mail.
The Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters can examine and prosecute someone who enters parliament illegally and over ride the ban on the AEC at looking at citizenships. The JSCEM needs the House or Senate to refer a person to the committee, as the terrorist in a blue tie is the person being considered, these two won't refer him because there aren't the numbers to get him sent before the JSCEM. A minister from the government can do the same, again none would dare put their glorious leader in the dock.
Senator Nash and Ms Butler have both written to Mr Abbott asking for him to prove he is legitimate, he doesn't reply to them either. Mr Gray, when asked if he would press the issue, said that the current situation is fine, voters monitor S44 and all is well.
The Australian Federal Police can not prosecute for falsely signing the AEC declaration because they can not examine citizenship issues in elections because the AEC can't ask about citizenship. Commissioner Colvin's office advise Mr Keenan, the Minister for Justice, and he advised me of this after I asked Mr Keenan to investigate.
You have refused to respond to my letters on this matter in the past, I do hope now you will change your mind and actually do your job as senator and Attorney General.
The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet answered an FOI, FOI 2014/159 and FOI 2015/048 show that the document does not exist.
The Home Office in London keeps copies of all requests for renunciation of British Citizenship, their final response is that under section 40(5) of the UK FOI act they can only declare that they can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents. That part of the act refers to the UK Data Protection Act part 29 which stops the release of information in the case of a criminal investigation. the only way a crime can have happened is if there is no renunciation paperwork. Ergo,the renunciation papers do not exist, the only way a crime can have occurred is if they do not exist.
Mr Abbott is in parliament illegally and kept there because his party colleagues do not want to uphold the law.
Will you send the matter to the JSCEM?
My email has much better security, nothing there is irreplaceable, all are in the cloud,on USB sticks and copies out of the home.
If you want to keep me out of poverty, please send a penny or two. I am one of those pov-liners who can't afford to drive a car and for who a cup of coffee or a glass of beer is out of the question. And the joke about housing, really Joe.
If you would like to keep me out of poverty, please press the button and thank you all that do.
