This is NOT only about restoring Australian citizenship of people born in PNG prior to 1975, it is also about the nature of Australian citizenship being just a bloke's ornament. Women are an equal part of the Australian polity. Taking Australian citizenship from Ms Bird is completely ridiculous.

Because it’s unfair and needs to be reconsidered. Their are many other people granted this privilege that should be revoked before any PNG people  If this ever happens

My two adult were born in PNG prior to 1975 and have live in Australia as Will they be declared stateless when they apply for a new Australian Passport??? Rules were changed without any consideration for people involved. Not good enough Australian Government. Sort it out.

Thanks for adding your voice.
