There is a God after all!
“AUTHORITIES in New Zealand have confirmed that our Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce is indeed a citizen of their country. The emphatic declaration of the Nationals leader’s dual citizenship puts increased pressure on him to step aside, at least while the matter is examined by the High Court. Mr Joyce made the extraordinary revelation today in Parliament that he learnt last week that he could be a citizen of New Zealand by descent via his father. Just hours later, New Zealand’s Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne has confirmed Mr Joyce is a New Zealand citizen under the Citizenship Act of 1948. Mr Dunne told local reporters that Crown Law had checked the circumstances and confirmed Mr Joyce was a citizen. The country’s prime minister Bill English also confirmed the problematic status, saying: “Unwittingly or not, he’s a New Zealand citizen.” The situation puts Malcolm Turnbull’s majority government under threat. There are growing calls for Barnaby Joyce to step aside but Prime Minister is backing his deputy.
