I cannot understand why there is an urge by some to become a republic and change a system that has evolved the way it has and kept this country together. I hope our new King and Queen have a long and glorious reign and that includes as the “Head of State” of Australia. It seems referendum or not, the Governments of the day make change after change heading us in the direction of a republic. Without a mandate, without any consensus, except their personal desire to change the system. The most recent example being the appointment of a minister for a republic. That shows the arrogance of the current government in not respecting the previous referendums. And, remember this dishonest behavior only exemplifies what we can except when one of these political practitioners become our head of state. I can see any of them taking an oath as did the King to serve all.
Today is the 19/4/23 and only a couple of weeks to the King’s coronation. Yet the Government has made no comment on a holiday for the event. With over half of Australians for a Monarchy why does the Government treat us with disrespect and dishonor our Head of State. Just because the Prime Minister wants a Republic he has a duty and responsibility to be courteous. I have phoned my local State Member of Parliament, The Governor in Qld., Deputy Prime Ministers Office, and 2 Senators, and all know nothing ? All very pathetic and shoddy responses.
