By Russell Grenning, published 13/9/2017

There is an outfit in Old Blighty called Republic which carries the flag although surely not the Union Jack for the republican cause.

Few things are more boring or more useless than republic/monarchy chatter.

HM Prime Minister Theresa May follows Oliver Cromwell Lord Protector of a united "Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland". The Commonwealthman ideas of government regulated
by the people became the dominant ideology of the American Revolution and the new American nation. The British Revolution against imperial EU and royal Yanks for the Queen's Commonwealth shows the British are coming , leaving and circling .

People go on about socialism's sketchy record but seem to forget about the 'R' in USSR and the PRC.

I'm pretty much over this theatre of the ridiculous, called royalty. Spoiled brats, serving rapacious appetites for most of their capricious whims, on the public purse?

And I have been since the day the music and Princess Diana died!

How many palaces do the royal family now have and who pays for the small army called "the staff" and the upkeep?

Unbelievably, our alleged head of state is a foreigner, who without renouncing her "foreign allegiance", couldn't run for public office here!

She allegedly remains, Britain's richest woman!

And if you're the richest? It also follows, you're the most powerful?

Yet hardly ever have to account for your family's, invariably forgiven (annus horribilis) bad behaviour and rarely if ever asked to account for public purse expenditure or pay a fair share of tax?

Simply put, these folk bleed the same red blood as any other human and pee the same colored urine and from the same positions! Get old, incoherent?

That said and duly noted, it is possible that "Mother England" could become a republic, before we do?

What then? The Royal Family migrate to the antipodes? Take up residence in the Governor's house/houses? Go fishing in Sydney harbour aboard the Britannia?

Just so they can imbibe as much, coal fired sourced, mercury as the local fish consumers? Ostensibly to lower the average IQ on both sides of the equator?

Mercury laced fish? I say old chap, jolly poor show, what?

Williams married Katherine Cromwell, sister of Thomas Cromwell who became chancellor to Henry VIII. So Morgan Williams gained estates after the confiscation of church lands and his son Richard changed the family name to Cromwell. Cromwell was appointed Captain-General and commander-in-chief of the Army. The Australian Gov-Gen is captain of Homeless Revolutionary Gas-Frackers and Money Launderers proudly displaying the road-ragers salute.

I aint no royalist but queen plays very important role in Commonwealth of Australia Constitution that protects our rights and freedoms.

In spite of all their weakness, we Australians have everything to gain and nothing to loose, accept our constiution by advocating for the abliltion of the office of Queen.

Don't for christ sake claim we would be better off with a republic because if these people are prepared to create a thing called the "Australian Goverment" and the "Australian Paliament" which has no constitutional basis at all, then i dread to think of how few rights we would have under a 'republic' type structure.

The Austrlain Constitution lays down how the constitution can be changed and if the govts of the 1970's put their finger up to that and did not even bother obeying those requriements what cause has anyone got think we would any real rights under a republic?
