Some of you might remember those childhood games of dominoes and pick-up-sticks?  Jeez, I thought of them this week.

If that constitutional legal nerd, Perth lawyer John Cameron, hadn’t decided a month ago to go after my antecedents, hadn’t gone sniffing around in Wellington to see if I had renounced my Kiwi citizenship, the Turnbull government might not be in the "deep doodoo" it is now. The dominoes might not have fallen. The sticks might not have moved.
