Roberts is going to run in the Qld State Election. Wheeee
In Sykes v Cleary, the 1992 case that disqualified Phil Cleary from holding a House of Representatives seat on the grounds that as a government employed teacher he held an “office of profit under the Crown” and found two other candidates were unable to contest the election on grounds of holding dual citizenships, Deane J addressed the issue of what would happen if there were a change in a candidate’s circumstances between nomination and being “declared duly elected”.
Deane held that:
if a disqualifying event under s. 44 of the Constitution intervenes, the disqualified person cannot be validly declared duly elected at a time when he or she is disqualified.
Interestingly, on the question of timing, Wheeler [QC, advising the government later on an another s 44 controversy] advised that on her understanding of the explicit holdings of Deane J and the implicit holdings of the majority in Sykes v Cleary if Ferris had validly held an office of profit (even for a short period) in the period before she was declared elected but after polling day, her election “would be” voided.
Jilder: "Dunno who you've been talking to, Pinback, but there's a good possibility backlash at Adani Carmichael may yet saddle us poor Queenslanders with another LNP government in the upcoming state election. There are a lot of people pissed off at the Palaszczuk government for the hand over fist manner in which they are throwing public funds at the project, especially up north."
Poland has been enforcing with varying stringency its claims to citizenship allegiance from descendants of Polish emigrants and from recent refugees from Polish Communism who became naturalized in other countries. Under a particularly strict enforcement policy, named by the Polish expatriate community the "passport trap", citizens of the United States, Canada, and Australia were prevented from leaving Poland until they obtain a Polish passport.
