Petition Calling on Republic MP to Retract Slur on Queen

Petition Calling on Republic MP to Retract Slur on Queen

The Honourable Matt Thistlethwaite MP, Shadow Assistant Minister for Financial Services and Shadow Assistant Minister for the Republic, posted on Tuesday 14 July 2020 on his Facebook “Today’s release in full of the Palace Letters confirm that Australia needs to begin another serious discussion about an Australian as our head of state – an Australian who acts is the interests of our nation and its people, not beholden to the advice, influence and interests of a foreign power.” [meaning that the Queen acts in the interests of a ‘foreign power ‘ with the inference that she is, herself, a 'foreign power']. Mr Thistlethwaite has also publicly repeated his claims on television and elsewhere.

Please sign this petition calling on Mr Thistlethwaite to retract his unfounded and quite blatantly wrong remarks relating to the Queen of Australia as being a foreign power. The Queen and her successors will always, without question or doubt, act in the interests of Australia.

    The release of the papers, from the time of the Dismissal, show beyond doubt that Her Majesty the Queen played no part in the removal of Mr. Gough Whitlam who refused all attempts to achieve a reasonable outcome. The bottom line is, the Australian people endorsed the decision of our Governor-General and overwhelmingly voted for a change in government. The G-G really was protecting us from the imposition of unconstitutional tyranny. So, we may well say, “God save the Queen” and the G-G was saved too, contrary to G.W’s. arrogant rant.

    We reject the slur you made of our Queen. You need to apologize!

    We support the Queen of Australia and the Westminster system which has served and continues to serve our country very well. Any alternatives are inferior to Her Majesty and the Westminster system we are privileged to live under.

    This is why so many people want to come to live in Australia.

    You need to respect that!

    This fellow Thistlethwaite is just another otherwise negligible cryptoMarxist who can’t open his mouth without lying.

    To describe the Queen in this manner is not only incorrect but a disgrace and a dishonourable action by a member of our parliament. A retraction and apology should be immediate!

    This hypocrite would resign if he had an ounce of integrity.
