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.

    Very hard to find anyone who puts Australia before their own interests, obviously Mr Thistlewaite is certainly not one of them.

    Matt Thistlewaite is a disgrace to have said this against our Queen who he swore his allegiance to and should retract the statement and/or resign

    The Honourable Matt Thistlewaite, really? Nothing seems honourable about this man. He is typical of Labor and the Greens. They are not patriots, they are subversives! This is the best country in the world because of the system we’ve had in place all these years. It’s always the lefties that want to change everything. If we become a republic it will cost many millions of dollars to make the change for a system not true, tried and tested. Australia cannot afford to spend millions at this time when the coronavirus has damaged our economy. Oh, and one last thing, a republic would mean a change to our beautiful national flag but Matt Thistlewaite and his mates will never mention that.

    I am a confirmed monarchist and a great admirer of the Queen. A woman full of wisdom and one who I have been privileged to meet. God save the Queen!

    MP Thistlewaite should resign. These politician’s that swear allegiance when becoming an MP and then wish to change the constitution have not got the right to keep there position in parliament

    Mr Thistlethwaite, shame on you for promising to honour HM then casting aspersions on her. The letters between HM and our PM were to ensure he was acting according to law, before dismissing Whitlam – which is not interference on the part of the Queen.

    Thistlethwaite is an imposter so caught up in his anti-Australia agenda that he’s lost touch with what truth is.
