Well that would certainly fix the bias problem (by that I mean the lack of it)

And here are the flag count stats for Tony Abbott. Feeling the pressure a bit are we?
The inclusion of 10 flags at Tuesday’s announcement of legislation to remove citizenship from suspected terrorists brings the flag count to an all-time high.

With winter forcing people to take up indoor pursuits, it appears online gaming doesn't have the monopoly on fun as new style board games capture the imaginations of young and old.

China FTA: The agreement specifically excludes the transparency rules that would allow ISDS proceedings and the information surrounding them to be transparent to the public interest.

"Andrew Maiden, Australian Subscription Television and Radio Association chief executive, compared the use of VPNs to “getting around that a supermarket has a faulty checkout where you can take goods out without paying for them”. He added that just because it’s possible to circumvent a law, that doesn’t make it right to do so."

No, you can compare it to a supermarket that has a set of checkouts where prices are cheaper and where all the latest products are available but which you are barred from using by the colour of your skin or the way you look. The site filtering bill is like a big piece of black plastic put up to stop you looking with a big security guard to say "Move Along, nothing to see here" whilst the kids duck under the fence when he isn't looking.

This is going too far. You can lose your citizenship if you destroy or damage Commonwealth property or if you possess a "thing" connected to terrorism - where "thing" is not defined.

Come on Labor - stand up to these villains!

A thing connected to terrorism.
Terrorism; the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
Alright then Abbot; you own our turn back the boat policy, strip yourself of your citizenship buddy

I have some reservations about the new citizenship legislation (not that they will do any good, the Labor Party will wave it through).

Firstly you can lose your citizenship by financing terrorist activities. There is no check of intent so if you give money to a charitable cause and some of that money is used to finance terrorism then you are then a financer of terrorism and you can lose your citizenship.

Secondly you can lose your citizenship if you were born here. Like many Australians I am eligible for a UK passport because of my ancestry. I don't support terrorism but if I did something that the government construed as terrorism could I lose my citizenship and have to move to the UK?

Thirdly the minister gets to decide what is a terrorist organisation and what isn't. What safeguards are there on this to prevent organisations being demonized and then listed?

Finally there is the matter of proof. They have tried to get around this by saying that loss of citizenship happens automatically when the activity occurs however how is it established that the activity has occurred? In a court there are rules about how facts are established but there seem to be no rules in the legislation.

All in all some disturbing issues.
