  • canceled rsvp +1 for Tony Abbott in Brisbane 2023-03-15 22:35:12 +1100

    Tony Abbott in Brisbane

    THIS FUNCTION IS NOW FULLY BOOKED OUT

     

    Join Australia's 28th Prime Minister for an exclusive experience.

    In the words of The Honourable Tony Abbott AC, 'The fact that we have the Crown means there is some part of our public life that is divorced from party politics. By becoming a republic, there will inevitably be more politics, not less, and I think we have quite enough politics already.'

    You'll hear from Tony as he opens up about his time in office – a staunch monarchist surrounded by republicans – and dives deep into the decisions he took to best protect the Crown and Constitution against those seeking ultimate power for themselves. Tony also weighs in on the ambitions of today's prime minister to implement sweeping constitutional reform, be that a republic or the Voice to Parliament. You'll have an opportunity to ask related questions and tackle some of the country's greatest questions with a political and intellectual mind like no other. 

    Situated in the heart of Brisbane in an historic precinct opposite Parliament House and the City Botanic Gardens, the Queensland Club is one of Australia's most iconic and prestigious venues, known especially for its beautiful furnishings, delicious food and first-class wines.

    Q: If you have professional fundraising experience, would you like to join this group?
    A: Yes

    AML Online Groups

    As we enter 2023, we are restructuring and expanding the Australian Monarchist League to enable us to better face the government’s campaign to remove the Crown from the Australian Constitution.

    To assist us in this regard we are forming a few online groups and invite monarchists to join any eligible group if they wish.

    These initial groups are:

    Women’s AML Group
    This will be a group for ladies to meet online and discuss monarchy matters relevant to them.

    Veterans Group
    This is a group for the many veterans we have amongst our database may wish to join together to support the Crown that all have made allegiance to uphold.

    Over 65s Group
    Any monarchist over 65 is invited to join this group.

    Fundraising Group
    This is a group to bring together persons with professional fundraising expertise.

    Online Format
    The format for meeting online will be decided by each group

    Q: Republicans want to remove The Queen’s Birthday Holiday. Please let us know whether you agree it should be removed (answer Yes) or whether it should stay as it is (answer No)?
    A: No

    Queen's Birthday Survey

     


    There are calls by republicans and others to replace The Queen’s Birthday Holiday with – we don’t know what.

    The holiday is Australia’s oldest public holiday instituted by Governor Arthur Philip in 1788. It is held in June or October in the case of WA & Qld, to suit the calendars within each State. Its purpose is to honour the Queen of Australia.

    We are looking for responses from as many people as possible to determine their views on this matter. We believe that most will be against change and the answers will bolster our arguments to retain the holiday.

  • Petition to Protect Our Australian Way of Life

    Australians get to enjoy an amazing quality of life with family and friends.

    Our unique and long established Westminster system of government provides us with peace and prosperity, allowing us to enjoy time with family, privately help the less fortunate in the community, and invest for future generations.

    Australian Monarchist League is calling for a show of support from the Australian community to petition so we keep the current Australian Westminster system of government

    What makes Australia the best country on earth?

    People, families, and communities thrive in Australia. Where else in the world can citizens receive:

    Job and business opportunities
    Top level healthcare
    World class education
    Beautiful and diverse environment
    Security and regulation
    Affordable utilities
    Reliable infrastructure

    The Australian government provides us with all these things, it shows how efficient and effective our system of government is. 

    Why is the Australian government so successful while other countries struggle?

    The key difference is, Australia has its own unique Westminster system of government which contains a:

    Lower House
    (i.e. House of Representatives)
    Publicly elected
    Proposes policies and changes.

     

    Upper House
    (i.e. Senate)
    Publicly elected
    Reviews, approves and amends proposed policies and changes.

     

    Governor-General
    (i.e. Crown's Representative)
    Takes control in exceptional circumstances.
    Prime Minister can petition the Crown to dismiss the Governor-General.

     

    The Lower House proposes policies, and the Upper House reviews, approves and can amend the proposed policies.

    This two-step process distributes the power amongst the politicians and allows for constructive debate and solutions that satisfy the wider community.

    The Governor-General’s role is to ensure this political process is working.

    How is Australia now under threat?

    The republican lobby groups are pushing to replace the Governor-General with an elected or appointed head of state that will likely belong to one of the two major Australian political parties.

    If one political party held a majority in the lower house and upper house, and also held the head of state, that political party could exploit their position to remain in power uncontested.

    It would be the beginning of political corruption and the end of Australia as we know it. 

    Sign the petition to show your support in keeping the current Australian Westminster system of government.

  • 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.
