Staunch Republican Mooted to Become Governor of Western Australia

Staunch Republican Mooted to Become Governor of Western Australia

Andrew Burrell, The Australian, 3 Feb 2018

It is rather ironic that a man who has been working to remove the Queen from the Australian Constitution since 1975 and who recently became a member of the advisory panel of the Australian Republican Movement, is now mooted to become the Queen’s representative in Western Australia.

The Queen is Queen of Western Australia and the job of the governor is to act as her representative in the State. As such he must give - and abide by - a loyal oath of allegiance to the Queen.

One wonders how such a strong republican can do all this in good faith and without appearing to be a total hypocrite.
