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
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.
Thank you to those who have PayPal'd me, much appreciated. Being PayPal I can't thank you personally because your personal details are kept private. Very much appreciated to have the support, in gifts or words, from so many people over the past few years.
Cheers thanks & goodonya
