In this mini episode I’ll summarise what happened in Australian politics for the month of July 2017. We’ll take a closer look at how many senators were kicked out for being foreigners, and why no legislation was passed at all.

Some of your questions answered in this episode:

  1. Has there been a case where a politician had been there for so long and not technically been eligible?
  2. Will they have to pay their salary back?
  3. Would they be entitled to a parliamentary pension?
  4. Is all of the legislation they voted on null and void?
  5. Has this been tested in the High Court before?
  6. What is this foreign power they hold allegiance to?
  7. What can we do to change it?
