Monarchists write to prime minister regarding Labor’s Spokespersons for ‘An Australian Head of State’
The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
CANBERRA ACT 2600
Dear Prime Minister
We understand that Mr Matt Thistlewaite MP, who bears the strange title ‘Shadow Assistant Minister for an Australian Head of State’, will shortly be embarking upon an 18 month campaign touring Australia promoting the removal of the Crown from the Australian. Constitution.
We request that you ensure that there be no use whatsoever of taxpayer monies to fund any expenses in relation to Mr Thistlewaite’s travel and other dealings to promote a republic. This would include any allocation of parliamentary allowances. There is no minister for an Australian head of state and therefore nothing for Mr Thistlewaite to shadow and no legitimate reason for the opposition to use taxpayer funds for this purpose.
