  • Petition to Protect Our Australian Way of Life

    Australians get to enjoy an amazing quality of life with family and friends.

    Our unique and long established Westminster system of government provides us with peace and prosperity, allowing us to enjoy time with family, privately help the less fortunate in the community, and invest for future generations.

    Australian Monarchist League is calling for a show of support from the Australian community to petition so we keep the current Australian Westminster system of government

    What makes Australia the best country on earth?

    People, families, and communities thrive in Australia. Where else in the world can citizens receive:

    Job and business opportunities
    Top level healthcare
    World class education
    Beautiful and diverse environment
    Security and regulation
    Affordable utilities
    Reliable infrastructure

    The Australian government provides us with all these things, it shows how efficient and effective our system of government is. 

    Why is the Australian government so successful while other countries struggle?

    The key difference is, Australia has its own unique Westminster system of government which contains a:

    Lower House
    (i.e. House of Representatives)
    Publicly elected
    Proposes policies and changes.

     

    Upper House
    (i.e. Senate)
    Publicly elected
    Reviews, approves and amends proposed policies and changes.

     

    Governor-General
    (i.e. Crown's Representative)
    Takes control in exceptional circumstances.
    Prime Minister can petition the Crown to dismiss the Governor-General.

     

    The Lower House proposes policies, and the Upper House reviews, approves and can amend the proposed policies.

    This two-step process distributes the power amongst the politicians and allows for constructive debate and solutions that satisfy the wider community.

    The Governor-General’s role is to ensure this political process is working.

    How is Australia now under threat?

    The republican lobby groups are pushing to replace the Governor-General with an elected or appointed head of state that will likely belong to one of the two major Australian political parties.

    If one political party held a majority in the lower house and upper house, and also held the head of state, that political party could exploit their position to remain in power uncontested.

    It would be the beginning of political corruption and the end of Australia as we know it. 

    Sign the petition to show your support in keeping the current Australian Westminster system of government.

  • ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

    WE WON - THE ABC AIRED THE BROADCAST JUST PRIOR TO THEIR 7 PM NEWS ON MONDAY 6 APRIL.
    There is therefore no need to sign the petition, although, if you are new to the Australian Monarchist League, please consider signing up to receive our updates.

    The Queen's Message can be viewed here.

     

    Other than at Christmas, the Queen has made few televised addresses but she is to make an address to the Commonwealth tomorrow, Sunday 5 April 2020.

    However,our understanding is that the ABC is purposefully not broadcasting the message. We call on all monarchists to sign this online petition calling on the public broadcaster to air the message from the Queen of Australia to her people.

    I call on the Australian Broadcasting Authority to broadcast the message from the Queen which is to be released on Sunday 5 April, 2020.
