The simple solution to the sad and stupid dual citizenship debacle

Senator Nick Xenophon is the latest Australian politician to declare he didn't know he has dual citizenship. He's going with others to the High Court to see if his breaking of the rules can be overridden. Who is paying for all this? That's right you and me, the taxpayers!

The simple solution to all this is stop all the nonsense, do an audit on every politician, declare an amnesty, let them renounce their citizenship of other countries, and let's all move on.

Why is this common sense solution not happening? My answer is politicians major in minors in order to drive self-interest and therefore fail to see simple solutions to problems.

In despair with those who pretend to govern.
