Pauline Hanson Outs Bill Shorten As Potential ’Dual Citizen'
This morning, Kyle and Jackie O spoke to Pauline Hanson in the wake of the ‘dual citizenship’ drama surrounding Barnaby Joyce, given that he was thought to be a citizen of New Zealand.
This makes him effectively ineligible to be in Australia parliament if the high court rules it so, and Kyle and Jackie O wanted to get Pauline’s thoughts on it.
While discussing Barnaby’s issue, Pauline then revealed that opposition leader Bill Shorten may also be a dual citizen, citing that she believed his father was born in the United Kingdom. Straight away, our producers contacted Bill’s office.
Here is the statement we received:
‘Bill apologises that he can’t come on the show this morning he is currently in Parliament. He heard Pauline’s statement and sent us the following statement.
Bill renounced his UK citizenship in 2006, like he was meant to.’
