Australia and the dual-nationality crisis

A citizenship ceremony takes place in Melbourne in January

A laughable development about the immigrant nation that is Australia

At a point, the list of casualties of the nation's dual-nationality-crisis seemed to be growing.  First two senators resigned after learning they held citizenship of New Zealand and Canada.  Then a third stood down from his cabinet post on discovering that although he had never even been there, he was a citizen of Italy.

Further checks swept Australia's deputy prime minister up into what became a full-blown crisis. Barnaby Joyce was deemed ineligible to hold his seat after being found to hold New Zealand citizenship.
