Technically yes. But a mass denunciation of said citizenship offer. I dare say the High Court would be reluctant to do anything about it because surely they Paliament could have some sort of joint sitting and sack all the judges as traitors.

Now it's come to a head and the suggestion is up to 14 MP's are heading to the High Court. A few seats that could go either way makes it even more interesting.

It's like three-quarter time in a close Grand Final.

David Feeney, Labor factional hack par excellence, is gaaawn. The Greens will win his seat easily this time. Iíve tried to avoid feelings of schadenfreude throughout this whole process; why must the universe tempt me so!?

After the recent Northcote state by-election, I think the Greens will win comfortably here.

Anyone watching Question Time right now? Labor and the crossbenchers are moving to refer nine MPs to the High Court. Wonder if someone like George Christensen will cross the floor and get the vote passed. Popcorn required!

Itís a tie, and the speaker votes it down. The government breathes a sigh of relief...

Here's the Court's reasons published today for excluding Hollie Hughes from taking the vacancy created last month by Fiona Nash's ineligibility to take her seat because she was a foreigner (that lived in the house that Jack built): http://www8.austlii.edu.au/cgi-bin/viewdoc/au/cases/cth/HCA/2017/52.html
