That MP Chap From Pommyland: Is His Name Not Bruce?

03 November 2017 @ 14:32

As The Anglosphere burns, judges in Australia are spending an inordinate and obscene amount of their time forcing elected officials to resign their seats — no Separation Of Powers doctrine is going to stop these stuck-up sticky-beaks.

Mark Steyn has the full, comical-if-it-weren’t-so-damn-serious-and-seditious-and-sad details here.

A few highlights:

Here is a news story that will make no sense whatsoever to anyone who is not Australian – and, indeed, shouldn’t really make any sense even if you are Australian.

And…

At any rate, a senior member of the Australian cabinet, born and bred in Australia, turns out to be ineligible for Parliament because the bureaucracy of another country from whom he has never sought a passport has determined that via a deceased parent he is a citizen of theirs.

Gotcha. Welcome to the wacky world of the Australian constitution, specifically Section 44, under whose expansive interpretation by the High Court Canberra’s most illustrious parliamentarians are dropping faster than Harvey Weinstein’s robe….

And…

Mind if we call you ‘Bruce’ to keep it clear?

Is this beginning to sound to you like bollocks on stilts? In breezily redefining Section 44 to mean a citizenship that was invented half-a-century after the law was written and whose anomalies and ambiguities persisted for another third-of-a-century after that, the modern High Court was engaging in a characteristic bit of post-colonial hyper-nationalism that has had the paradoxical effect of forcing not only the judges but the entire Australian political system to swear “allegiance to a foreign power”. It’s like instituting Nuremberg racial purity laws and then outsourcing their administration to random bureaucrats around the planet. As the contrasting treatments of Ms Waters and Mr Xenophon demonstrate, non-Australian laws now get to determine whether you’re eligible to sit in the Australian Parliament: If Canada were to introduce the category of “Canadian Overseas Citizen” and “reclassify” Ms Waters, why, her tenure in Canberra might be retrospectively legitimized. Conversely, if the United Kingdom were to re-reclassify Mr Xenophon (as it did for example citizens of dependent territories in 2002 when it restored their right of abode in the UK), then he’d be liable to be kicked out all over again. Alternatively, Kim Jong-un could simply pronounce all seven billion people on the planet North Korean Overseas Citizens, and there’d be no one on earth allowed to stand for election in Australia. Go for it, Rocketman!


Could this be one explanation? —Jean Raspail


This is just another example of a nation in The West piddling and diddling around in Absurd areas of trivialities that end-up undermining their Legitimacy, while it’s enemies score victory after victory in things that really matter.

The West, I’ve concluded, doesn’t deserve to survive in it’s present form — and it won’t anyway because it refuses to stop it’s obsessive desire to destroy itself.

We have to start preparing to form Islands Of Refuge where the Idea of The West survives [most especially the Anglo variety, which is the pinnacle of it].

We have to become, it seems sadly, like the Early Christians before Constantine The Great — perhaps practicing our rituals in figurative catacombs.

If the trend we are seeing towards Decentralization continues, this would be an advantage to us, The Remnant [one can perceive a possible Neo-Feudalism emerging, but this is a topic for another time]. In the breakdown of the Nation-State and the re-rise of a modern version of the Medieval City-State, we may be able to carve-out some defensible territories.

However this drawn-out Suicide by The West plays out, we owe it to our Posterity to preserve what our Ancestors fought hard — and suffered, often horribly — to gift to us. That is our Obligation and Duty if we are to dare call ourselves Virtuous, if we are to dare to hope that Divine Providence will shine on us once again.

Refugium inveniemus in provinciis!

and

Howls of derisive laughter, Bruce!

    Republic by stealth in Oz, despite the citizens rejecting it.

    A pox on the political class.
