Yes he was a British citizen in spite of his well publicised denials. He was always Australian “in his head” was one thing that made me laugh. Sounds like gender switching bullshit logic to me. This by the way was the very same Senator Roberts who declared to the world that the USA gave One Nation tickets to President Trumps inauguration and none to the Liberal Government. DFAT stepped in and set the record straight, 一個國家 (Roberts) asked for the tickets and yes invitations were given to the Australian High Commission. Roberts is an outright slimy lying bastard along with the rest of that crowd. No they do not deserve to be elected to anything at all.

Senator Roberts was born in India to a Welsh father, which potentially made him both a British and Indian citizen at birth.
