I really think citizenship can cause a lot of problems when the "my country wrong or right" bit rears its ugly head.
I'm a citizen of three countries but I could not say I'm spectacularly loyal to any of them, it's just a little difficult to get around without a passport from at least one and preferably two of them :)
Even the US has softened up on the dual citizenship issue, use to be you had to give up US citizenship if you became a citizen of Australia for example, not so any more.
I've never checked, is Abbot a dual citizen ? He'd be entitled.
Actually chrisg Abbott as a member of parliment is not entitled to hold dual citizenship, this comes under Section 44 of the constitution.
I personnally have no issue with people being citizens of more than one country, my neighbour is a 10 pound pom has still has his British citizenship as well as his Australian citizenship and has just been given permanent residency status in Greece becasue he brought a car while holidaying there.
I do not think the government should be able to strip a citizen of their citizenship without due process, this isn't something that should be decided upon by the Attourney General of the day.
