Monarchy is important because it guarantees responsible government in our country.
Lynette Pollard answered 2023-04-09 22:24:50 +1000Q: If you have answered YES, what day would you prefer. NOTE: We would probably need to go with the majority decision.
A: I am available for lunch on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. I prefer to not go out at night these days as I am 80yo.
Casual Lunch Gatherings Sydney
We are organising casual lunch gatherings of just a few people who are available on a particular day. The lunches would be held at the Castlereagh Boutique Hotel otherwise known as the Masonic Club with individuals ordering and paying separately. It would be an opportunity for like-minded friends to gather with no speeches or other formalities.
If you would like to receive invitations for these casual lunch gatherings, can you please complete this questionaire and also indicate what day is best for you. We would then need to go with the majority decision.

Lynette Pollard answered 2021-11-18 13:46:29 +1100Q: Do you support the advocacy of the Prince of Wales in regard to action on climate change?
The Prince of Wales & Climate Change Action
The subject of climate change and proposed human intervention is one that has created deep divisions amongst Australians. Whilst it is not a matter that falls within our mandate, we have nevertheless become enmeshed because of the advocacy of the Prince of Wales in promoting action and the resulting implications this may have to the future of our system of constitutional monarchy.
Members will be well aware that I have expressed concerns over many years to his Royal Highness pointing out that as he is carrying out duties on behalf of the Queen it is incumbent on him not to make any comment on any matter of controversy and that his future subjects would obviously have differing opinions on differing issues all of which he must respect whether he agrees or not.
It is important for us, the Australian Monarchist League to be aware of the opinions of our support base on this issue and we would therefore very much appreciate your answering a couple of questions in any, sort of, survey. This will help us plan a pathway through this difficult time.
Lynette Pollard commented on HBO ANIMATED CARTOON 2021-08-06 14:43:04 +1000I feel very angry that the Royal Family have been subjected to such a demeaning portrayal but especially Prince George. It is supposed to be a cartoon but. instead of laughter, I feel disgust!

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
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:
(i.e. House of Representatives)
Proposes policies and changes.
Reviews, approves and amends proposed policies and changes.
(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.
Lynette Pollard signed Matt Thistlethwaite infers Queen is a foreign power. 2020-07-18 10:25:10 +1000
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.

Congratulating the Prime Minister
Labor leader, Anthony Albanese has called on the prime minister to provide more funding to the ABC. The prime minister has rejected the call and should be congratulated.
To the Prime Minister, the Hon. Scott Morrison MP

I applaud your decision in dismissing the call from Labor leader, Anthony Albanese, to reverse the government’s funding freeze on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Lynette Pollard signed ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message 2020-04-04 23:34:47 +1100Why are Australians being denied hearing the Queen’s message?
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.
