What are your thoughts on dual/multiple citizenship and being able to serve in parliament?
We celebrate the fact that we’re a multicultural country to the rest of the world, but within our own boarders it’s seems to be not so.
“We are one, but we are many, and from all the lands on earth we come. We share a dream, and sing with one voice – I am, You are, We are Australia (unless you have dual citizenship because than you’re not actually Australian and you can’t serve our country on the political front because that sh*ts just wrong)”
So because we have migrated to a country, do we have to give up our heritage entirely? Do we have to concede our ties to our ancestors? All of our history that makes us unique! Does that mean we also don’t love the country we live in equally?
Surely, a country of many flags and one uniting flag should accept it’s leaders coming from many flags and uniting under one flag.
If diversity really does encourage creativity/new perspective/innovation/new ideas, then why are we still insisting that our leaders should not be diverse at all?
