Re: Christmas Word Fun

Kwassie: a person of dual citizenship.

Etymology:
A recently coined word to define the Leader of the National Party of Australia and Deputy PM who was recently suspended from parliament due to his holding dual citizenship.
The High Court in a unanimous decision ruled that Barnaby Joyce, the Deputy Prime Minister, whose election to parliament was invalid because he also held New Zealand citizenship. Barnaby had therefore to stand down and renounce his NZ citizenship and face a by-election for the seat of New England last Saturday, which he won by a comfortable majority.
Our constitution precludes any person of dual citizenship from being elected to the Australian parliament.

'Effluent'. How some affluent people in the Home Counties like to describe themselves.

That depends on whether you're trying to hand hold, or simply can't get your tripod up, Mark!

Sufficient: n + 1, where n = current number of lenses.
