  • Petition to the Senate Regarding the Platinum Jubilee

    The Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II

    Available only to Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents

    In one year's time, on 6 February 2022, the Queen will have been 70 years on the throne. A milestone never reached before by any British monarch and by only three other monarchs in known history. [The others were Louis XIV of France d 1715 (72+ years), Rama IX of Thailand d 2016 (70+ years) and Johann II of Liechtenstein d 1929 (70+ years)].

    Following the Queen's visit to Australia in 1954, where an estimated 75% of Australia’s population came out to cheer her as she travelled around Australia, Australian governments did relatively little to celebrate her Golden and Diamond Jubilees and, as a consequence, they passed by relatively unnoticed.

    This is an e-petition calling on the Senate to establish an all-party group to prepare nation-wide celebrations honouring the Queen on her Platinum Jubilee.

    We call upon all those who honour the Queen to sign this online petition which will be tabled in the Senate in its June sitting.

    The current rules governing petitions to the Australian Senate require your real name and a genuine email address. Since these details may be verified by parliamentary officers it is essential that our petition does not reach any stumbling block. This petition is totally in-house and does not use any external facility. Accordingly, your details will be kept absolutely confidential at all times and names and email addresses will not be used by us unless you opt in to receive information from the Australian Monarchist League including details of the petition and its presentation and reception in the Senate.

    Yours sincerely

    Philip Benwell
    National Chair
    Australian Monarchist League

    To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

    The petition of the undersigned shows:

    • 6 February 2022 will be the 70th anniversary of the accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the throne of Australia.
    • A platinum jubilee is a milestone never before reached by a monarch in the shared history of Australia, the United Kingdom and the 14 other Commonwealth realms. It is an historic occasion worthy of public celebration.
    • On 12 January 2021 the British Parliament established an all-party parliamentary group called “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Society of the Houses of Parliament” to discuss how to best mark the Platinum Jubilee in the United Kingdom

    Your petitioners ask that the Senate:

    initiate a working group, consisting of Senators and Members of the House of Representatives from all parties, to plan nationwide events to celebrate this momentous occasion.

    Attention: Laura Smith,

    Hi Laura, I refer to the email you sent me on how to renew my membership (which is well overdue) via your website. I’ve logged in but find absolutely no mention of membership renewal. I tried joining as a new member as you suggested but even that fails because I’m directed straight to my account with you.

    Surely the AML has a bank account to which members can transfer the amounts required for renewal (and no doubt other funds – donations etc.). There is something definitely missing on the AML’s portal when it comes to membership renewals. I’ll resort to the only other method of renewal; – via “snail mail” which is the least convenient for people in my position since there is no post box nearby let alone a post office.

    Kind regards, Knut Meyer
