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.

    Those that break the oath should be either charged with perjury or dismissed from Parliament.

    The Ministers comments are a disgrace and if he doesn’t retract them and apologise he should be stood down.

    We are fortunate to be a Constitutional Monarchy: I personally reject and object to calls by Parliamentarians who push for Republicanism against the People’s wish. We are a Democracy, whether these individuals accept it or not, and voted in a Referendum to maintain our ties with the Monarchy.

    Did Mr Thistlewaite Perjure himself by lying about his claim to honour the Queen etc in his speech upon becoming a member of Parliament?

    If feel this should be raised as I think this man speaks with a forked tongue as well as a dishonest one!

    Mr Thistlethwaite is a hypocrite and a liar who swears allegiance to the Queen of Australia and then proceeds to attempt to tear down the very system he swore to protect!


    The actions that Sir John Kerr took were right and prove that our current system of government works. Why do the wealthy Mr Thistlethwaite and friends want to destroy a system of government that has lead to one of the most stable and prosperous nation on earth? Could it be because politicians like Mr Thistlethwaite want more power and money, something that our current system denies them?
