Nick Xenophon confirms he is British overseas citizen

According to ABC News, Xenophon's father Theodoros was born in Cyprus and came to Australia as a British citizen in 1951.

Turnbull's one-seat majority in the lower house is in jeopardy after Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce Monday said he may be ineligible for Parliament due to New Zealand citizenship by descent.

The leader of the Nick Xenophon Team confirmed on Saturday that the United Kingdom home office has clarified that he is considered a "British overseas citizen".

If Australian politics hadn't already jumped the shark, it well and truly did last night with National Party deputy leader Fiona Nash admitting to being a citizen of another country.

Xenophon said at a press conference that he would continue to work as a senator while the High Court looked at his case, and an image he tweeted shortly after his announcement indicated that the independent wasn't taking the issue too seriously.

Before he was first elected in 2007, he wrote to the Greek embassy and Cypriot high commission to renounce any possible citizenship.

US Sweeps Afternoon Matches To Regain Solheim Cup Lead
The favored Americans found themselves trailing Europe after a sluggish start to the Solheim Cup in West Des Moines, Iowa. Nordqvist and Hall birdied to win the second hole and never trailed, closing out the match by winning the 16th and 17th.

"I never contemplated that I could have been a British colonial citizen, and that is why I didn't go through an act of renunciation with the United Kingdom", he said.

But because the solicitor-general was busy in the High Court he did not have time to provide his assessment until 5pm. My mother died five years ago.

"I have just met with the Prime Minister and am taking this opportunity to make the Senate aware at the earliest possible opportunity of the position", Senator Nash said.

The Senate would be asked to refer her case to the High Court when parliament returns on September 4.

Like the Nationals' Barnaby Joyce, Xenophon will refer himself to the High Court to decide whether he is eligible to serve as a member of parliament.
