ELITE REPUBLICANS MUST STOP BLUDGING ON STUDENTS AND PAY THEIR WAY
“The Australian Republican Movement must stop bludging on students and behave like any other group and pay for facilities they use at Sydney University”, Chairman of the Australian Monarchists League, Mr Philip Benwell said today.
“The Sydney University student magazine has calculated that the republican dinner held last year, that cost $3,000 a table for guests, raised at least $35,000 from ticket sales so why don’t they pay the same $5020.40 everyone else would have to pay,” Mr Benwell said.
“Of course we all know why. Republicans do not regard themselves as ordinary people. They think are entitled to Special Treatment because they believe they are better than everyone else. It’s only poor pathetic Nobodies who pay Full Fare because they can’t use their Insider status in the University hierarchy as republican leader as Peter FitzSimons did to get this freebie.”
“Freedom of Information requests have revealed that republican Chairman Peter FitzSimmon’s was personally involved in soliciting the unusual freebie from the University.”
“It probably costs FitzSimons more than 5020.40 each to service his family’s Porsche so if he thinks his elite republican group can’t afford $5020.40 he could easily pay it himself,” Mr Benwell said.
“No way should the University be out of pocket as ultimately that means less money for the University to spend and that hurts students.”
“But if FitzSimon’s doesn’t want his family Porsche Runabout misfiring and running rough because he had to skip an annual service then his republican movement has plenty of cash. They should pay the bill. Billionaire gambling boss Jamie Packer gave them $250,000 so surely they can use some of that to pay their fair share and stop bludging on students,” Mr Benwell said.
“This disgraceful bludging on students so Virtue Signaling republican elites can enjoy a posh dinner with Kate Ceberano and Prime Minister Turnbull to entertain them without paying for the venue is symptomatic of this whole idiotic republican push,” Mr Benwell said.
“The republican push is merely a giant ego trip for self appointed elites like FitzSimons to big note themselves. Ordinary Australians have real issues to worry about like paying their power bills, keeping up to date with their mortgage and doing well in their job so it’s still there next year. A republic is a not a solution to any problem Australia faces. It’s just a problem for a problem we don’t have,” Mr Benwell said.
