Thank you for a very informative newsletter esp re the Hocking debacle re the correspondence between Sir John Kerr and Her Majesty. I agree that this episode should be used to inform the Australian public about the stability of our system. Rather than being seen as a ‘dismissal’, the 1975 events should be seen as the Crown re-enforcing the public’s democratic right to have a say in how we are governed and by whom. The landslide repudiation of Whitlam is proof positive of this. I am very interested in the Australian Nationhood Foundation. Great initiative. Happy to assist where I can. Regards and thanks again.
