Tony Abbott in Brisbane
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.

Jack Barton answered 2020-06-07 16:17:02 +1000Q: 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)?
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.
