The website for the High Court of Australia has crashed, presumably from all the traffic wanting to check the decision on the dual citizenship status of seven politicians.
Here’s how it looked at 2:15pm when the decision was due:
The court has ruled that deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce is ineligible to remain in parliament and will have to contest a by-election. Senators Malcolm Roberts, Larissa Waters, Fiona Nash are Scott Ludlam were also judged ineligible.
Only Matt Canavan and Nick Xenophon have been ruled eligible to remain, although Xenophon last week announced he would switch back to the South Australian parliament.
