A new push for Republic of Australia

As a naturalised Australian, I never quite understand why some of my fellow countrymen are content with the concept that queen of England, who lives on the other side of the world, has the power to dissolve both houses of Australian parliament at her whim – it actually happened once.

I was delighted today to hear that Quentin Bryce, ironically the current governor general of Australia, voiced her support for a republic system. That was a very nice gesture from her and hopefully this would spark new debates about having a real Australian citizen as head of state.

God Kick The Queen (eventually)!
