From The Age:
Morgan rates dual citizens as ‘bipolar’

BUSINESS leader Hugh Morgan has called for dual citizenship to be outlawed, comparing it to having a mental illness.
In a speech at Deakin University last night, the prominent Liberal Party supporter and former Business Council chairman said a person with dual citizenship had “at least the beginning of a bipolar disorder”.
Mr Morgan said citizenship was one of the most important elements of personal identity and would have a bearing on Australia’s survival as a nation.
“I am convinced that if we took Australian citizenship seriously, we would not tolerate this bipolarity. If you are an Australian then that should be the end of the matter,” he said.
“If your loyalties are to another country and Australian citizenship is merely a convenience, then you should hand in your Australian passport and feel content that your loyalties and your passport are in accord one with the other.”
It takes a genuine psychopath- who really doesn’t know the difference between his ass and a hole in the ground- to claim that dual nationality is akin to a mental illness.
Speaking of holes in the ground, Morgan is the same rich twat with many financial interests in mining, who opposes Australia’s participation in the Kyoto Protocol. Fatcat Morgan unsurprisingly thinks global warming is a furphy. Some measure of sociopathy or psychopathy is required to reckon that mining profits trump the destruction of the global environment.
I’m a dual national- a citizen of both the USA and Australia. I vote in both countries and of course can travel freely between them and work in either. Never have I had conflict of interest as a result of being a dual citizen- and I’ve had around 10 years to think about it.
When America finally declares war on Australia, I suppose I’ll have some choices to make, but probably not before.
