Australia's birther question
The british-born Prime Minister of Australia has denied a Freedom of Information request regarding his citizenship. Under the Australian constitution it is illegal to become a Member of Parliament while holding citizenship in another country, however PM Abbott has so far refused to clarify whether or not he is still a British Citizen, and if not when he revoked his citizenship.

Quote:Most importantly, no-one is questioning Mr Abbott’s "birth". We all know where he was born. So let's just sheet that silly "birther" term right back to the likes of Mr Wyeth and others who are promoting such ridiculous terminology, not the punters. Or, is lumping those questioning the blocking of the FOI request by the PM's office into "birthers", some kind of childish grudge because "non-mainstream" Independent Australia has been raising this issue?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Australia's birther question
Is it legal to inquire about someone else's citizenship via a freedom of info request? Seems a bit personal to me.
