The Special Minister of State is the minister responsible for looking after minor things like the Australian Electoral Commission.
We are on the 4th SMOS since Abbott came to power in 2013.
I am not just a nutter trying to get Abbott into court, I really do have some constructive ideas on how to do things better.
At the moment the part of the constitution which looks after dual nationals and their violation of our laws is off limits to all and sundry once the 40 days after the seat is declared and people in the electorate can take their MPs to the Court of Disputed Returns.
I mentioned this to Senator Robinson the first Abbott SMOS, then to Mr Brough the first Turnbull SMOS then to Senator Cormann the second Turnbull SMOS and this week to Senator Ryan the third Turnull SMOS.
None have bothered replying to my suggestions. They ignore me in the hope I will go away.
I suggested that they as SMOS can write a ministerial directive allowing the AEC to examine section44 compliance and breaches. They have the power to write a letter and let the AEC look. They ignored me and my idea.
Two liberal MPs might face the Court of Disputed Returns because the first 3 SMOS didn't bother reading and replying.
Two labour MPs, Gary Gray and Bernie Ripoll and one liberal MP, Bob Baldwin have quit parliament rather than risk their electorate taking them to the Court of Disputed Returns.
Two liberal MPs lost their seats and won't have the joy of being taken to the Court of Disputed Returns, Doc Jensen and Andy Nikolic, though I bet they could be taken there because they both signed a statement they comply with S44 when they are still dual nationals.
One senate candidate is facing prosecution for fraud for saying they complied with S44 when they don't. Strange because the AEC are taking this bloke to court but none of the liberals? Something to do with the make-up of the AEC board?
One candidate in Abbott's seat of Warringah may also face prosecution for falsely signing about S44, he wrote a copious blog about it and I am sure no one in the AEC actually reads anything the candidates publish. You want to hope so Warringah candidate.
I have no say in who goes to the Court of Disputed Returns and who doesn't, my Mps are removed regularly when the Australian Federal Police question them about criminal matters. Let's Wallace and his grommets survive a bit longer than Slipper and Brough. I did check up about a Queensland senator who assured me she got Australian citizenship from birth, she was born in Canadia and her parents registered her birth overseas immediately, unlike Abbott waiting until he was 23 and causing himself so many problems. Onya Senator Waters for clearing the matter up.
If you want to read more there is a few pages sent to Senator Ryan below. He blocked me on farcebook and twitter after writing to him so I guess he wanted Abbott and Turnbull to face the prospect the Court of Disputed Returns.
