The Australian Monarchist League wishes the King of Australia, King Charles III all the best as he deals with his health prognosis.
AUSTRALIANS BATTLING COST OF LIVING CRISIS
DON’T WANT WASTE WITH MINISTER FOR REPUBLIC
Over 3500 Australians have signed a letter to the Prime Minister calling for the abolition of the unnecessary and wasteful position of an Assistant Minister for the Republic, especially in the midst of a cost of living crisis.
The letter co-ordinated by the Australian Monarchist League calls on the Prime Minister to instead consider a cost of living minister to deal with the crisis facing many Australians.
PRIME MINISTER - HEAR THE PEOPLE AND ABOLISH THE TAXPAYER-FUNDED ASSISTANT MINISTRY FOR THE REPUBLIC
As the Labor caucus is set to meet in Canberra to deal with the ongoing cost of living crisis, the Australian Monarchist League has called on the Prime Minister to show good faith and sincerity with the Australian people by abolishing the Assistant Ministry for the Republic. This is a test of the Prime Minister’s genuineness, of whether he is fair dinkum.
The Australian Monarchist League is urging the Prime Minister to abolish the taxpayer-funded position of Assistant Minister for the Republic as he prepares to welcome King Charles III later this year.
The Australian Monarchist League is delighted to learn that King Charles III, King of Australia, accompanied by the Queen Consort, will be visiting Australia in October 2024.
This will be the first visit of King Charles as sovereign and we trust that the Australian and State governments will not restrict people being able to come out and welcome their new King as they did 70 years ago for the then new Queen, Elizabeth II.
The visit will also be His Majesty’s first time, as King and head of the Commonwealth, at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in Apia, Tuamasaga, Samoa from the 21st to the 25th of October.

Stan Grant’s Departure from the ABC
Racism in all its forms is to be abhorred and condemned. So it is with any attack on Stan Grant based on the grounds of his race.
The condemnation rightly directed at Stan Grant for abusing his privileged position as an ABC employee to hijack the coverage of the historic coronation broadcast nevertheless stands.
Australians were rightly appalled at his commandeering of the occasion of the coronation of the King of Australia for his gratuitous and outrageously jaundiced monologues seeking to lay the blame for every perceivable injustice at the feet of the Crown which should somehow be held responsible for events over two centuries ago.
Viewers of the ABC were rightly expecting their tax payer funded national broadcaster to provide an unbiased factual broadcast explaining the rich history of the coronation parts of which date back one thousand years. All the commercial stations did so as did the ABC’s equivalent in the BBC. Why couldn’t the ABC?
The Australian Monarchist League has made a formal FOI request under the Commonwealth Freedom of Information Act (1982) (FOI Act) which provides a right to request access to certain documents held by the ABC in regard to its pre-Coronation broadcast. Details of the League’s request are included hereunder.
Former Senator, the Hon. Eric Abetz, now chairman of the AML No Republic campaign, has stated, “The outpouring of public outrage at the hi-jacking of the coronation by the ABC, which was completely out of step with every other broadcaster including the BBC, requires a full disclosure as to how this pitiful turn of events was allowed to eventuate at the taxpayer-funded national broadcaster.
“This freedom of information request will expose the twisted thinking and those responsible for this unprecedented and unprincipled takeover of what should have been a factual commentary on an exceptionally historic occasion. The commandeering of the broadcast into a monologue of everything that might be wrong with our great country and then depositing it all at the feet of our constitutional monarchy was both blatantly absurd and an abuse of the occasion.
“Any delay or obfuscation by the ABC hierarchy relating to this request for transparency will be met with similar public outrage and do even more reputational damage to the taxpayer-funded broadcaster.”
Monarchists condemn NSW Premier for not lighting up the Opera House for Coronation
Monarchists from around the State who voted Labor, now regret doing so in view of the Premier’s decision, supposedly on the basis of cost, to cancel the lighting of the Opera House to commemorate the coronation of the King of Australia, who is also separately King of New South Wales and the other five Australian States.
