One Nation Senator Rod Culleton will face the High Court today as it sits at the Court of Disputed Returns to rule on whether or not Culleton was eligible to be elected as a senator for Western Australia. Culleton has released this submission to the court on his website, claiming:

“now we are in the High Court on one matter on referral from the Senate, all the grievances, I have with the Government of Australia can and must be aired and all such remedies shall be granted to the respondent as it appears to be just.”


It gets weirder:


The full submission, which has 24 points, can be read here and you really should read the whole thing, we can’t explain it.
