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.’
