  • Petition Calling on Republic MP to Retract Slur on Queen

    The Honourable Matt Thistlethwaite MP, Shadow Assistant Minister for Financial Services and Shadow Assistant Minister for the Republic, posted on Tuesday 14 July 2020 on his Facebook “Today’s release in full of the Palace Letters confirm that Australia needs to begin another serious discussion about an Australian as our head of state – an Australian who acts is the interests of our nation and its people, not beholden to the advice, influence and interests of a foreign power.” [meaning that the Queen acts in the interests of a ‘foreign power ‘ with the inference that she is, herself, a 'foreign power']. Mr Thistlethwaite has also publicly repeated his claims on television and elsewhere.

    Please sign this petition calling on Mr Thistlethwaite to retract his unfounded and quite blatantly wrong remarks relating to the Queen of Australia as being a foreign power. The Queen and her successors will always, without question or doubt, act in the interests of Australia.

    Prince Harry’s recent comments about examining the historical role of the Commonwealth in relation to Britain’s colonial past clearly demonstrates that he doesn’t understand the organisation at all.


    His unwise intervention on a political matter is a massive insult to the hard work of his grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, who, quite rightly, regards the Commonwealth as one of the great successes of her long reign.


    The best thing that he can do now is keep his big mouth shut, before he does serious damage to the institution of monarchy.

    The Governor-General acted in accordance with the constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia. He was not obliged to seek permission from the Queen regarding the procedure that he felt necessary to enact, only to advise Her Majesty about what had taken place. That is exactly what he did.

    The same procedure would have been carried out in a federal republic, such as the United States or Germany; where the President is head of state, but State Governors have their own reserve powers for dealing with domestic matters.

    Mr Whitlam broke the terms of his Oath of Office by attempting to subvert parliamentary procedure and use the office of Governor- General for party political gain.

    As a Queen’s Counsel he would have been fully aware of the consequences of his actions, and criminal charges should have been laid against him.

    Sir John Kerr, also a Queen’s Counsel, quite correctly sought the advice of the Chief Justice before taking action.

    Perhaps the AML should also ask to examine the relevant documentation so that a balanced and reasoned opinion can be given; after all the precedent has already been set by the High Court.
  • The Queen, as Head of the Commonwealth, has correctly chosen this time of uncertainty and fear to speak to the Commonwealth, a family of nations with a shared history and set of values. I hope that the ABC, as the national broadcaster of Australia will step up to the mark, as the BBC has done in the United Kingdom and share this message from the Queen of Australia.

    ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

    WE WON - THE ABC AIRED THE BROADCAST JUST PRIOR TO THEIR 7 PM NEWS ON MONDAY 6 APRIL.
    There is therefore no need to sign the petition, although, if you are new to the Australian Monarchist League, please consider signing up to receive our updates.

    The Queen's Message can be viewed here.

     

    Other than at Christmas, the Queen has made few televised addresses but she is to make an address to the Commonwealth tomorrow, Sunday 5 April 2020.

    However,our understanding is that the ABC is purposefully not broadcasting the message. We call on all monarchists to sign this online petition calling on the public broadcaster to air the message from the Queen of Australia to her people.

    I call on the Australian Broadcasting Authority to broadcast the message from the Queen which is to be released on Sunday 5 April, 2020.
