    13 May 2018

  • Constitutional Referendum Unnecessary

    03 May 2018

    It is disappointing that the chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters has seen fit to voice her private opinion on Section 44 of the Australian Constitution prior to the release of the already delayed report of the committee.

  • Keating Is Wrong

    02 April 2018

    Letter to the Editor

    The Australian

    Paul Keating is wrong. He is wrong when he says that Prince Charles wants Australia to become a republic. He is wrong when he says Australia cannot be great when it “borrows the monarch of Great Britain.” (The Australian April 2, 2018)

  • Staunch Republican Mooted to Become Governor of Western Australia

    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. It also recognises the travails and tribulations that settlement brought as well as the obvious benefits created by the establishment of the rule of law and order and eventual Parliamentary governance under our own constitution. Australia is what the past made us and no one can undo it, not even republicans.

They want to abolish Australia Day totally and once they have done that they will then start on the Australian flag and other symbols and traditions of our Australian heritage including our system of constitutional monarchy.
