    03 February 2018

    Andrew Burrell, The Australian, 3 Feb 2018

    It is rather ironic that a man who has been working to remove the Queen from the Australian Constitution since 1975 and who recently became a member of the advisory panel of the Australian Republican Movement, is now mooted to become the Queen’s representative in Western Australia.

  • Why Can't We All Honour Both the Indigenous People and the British Settlers of 1788?

    25 January 2018

    Australia Day should have nothing whatsoever to do with promoting a republic. It is a part of our history and celebrates the beginning of modern Australia.

  • Indoctrination in Schools Is Rife

    27 December 2017

    The incident of the Brisbane high school accused of indoctrinating its students with politically biased assignments is not, we fear, unusual.
    For many years the teaching and the marking of students right up and through university level has been based on the bias of the teacher or the lecturer rather than on the student’s knowledge of English and grammar and ability to reason.

    News (The Australian 15-12-17) that the Australian Republic Movement is to announce the establishment of a high-level advisory panel including a number of politicians and big-businessmen comes as no surprise because the campaign for ‘an Australian head of state’ has always been all about politicians and big business controlling the top job.
