By David Flint, published 9/8/2007

Kevin Rudd has given Laborís opponents another weapon to argue that wall-to-wall Labor would be too risky.

Did you get your own copy of the Crosby/Textor instructions David, or did you have to share with someone else?

It really is the last days of Rome for the Libs if Flint's out trying to wedge the ALP on the Republic issue. Tired of wedging. Tired of division. Me thinks Professor Flint actually wrote Flicka McMahon's article on selling the ABC. Ha!

Ahhhh! Flinty, dear boy.....

I seem to recall an obsequious exchange twixt yourself and a certain Mr Laws whist he was facing a few problems over broadcasting issues.

..now let me see..., who was involved in the panel that would be passing judgment on said broadcasting issues.................?

Honest mister, you en'arf a good judge of character.....

Davo, how on Earth would you have any credibility after the "cash-for-comment fiasco" I can't imagine why you are even considered to be published here, why not get your close mate Allan to help you with your vindictive ill informed rubbish.

We had a referendum on the issue of a republic and it was damned expensive exercise - it was lost in every state as well as by a majority of votes.
We are, to all intents and purposes, a republic already, a crowned republic.
The GG has two roles, one is as our head of state and the other is as the Queen's representative in her role as the head of the Commonwealth and our membership of it. The system works well and is seen as working well to give us stable government.
Those who cannot leave the issue alone are all too often those who think they would like the role of President knowing that they will never be offered the role og GG.
Becoming a 'republic' in name would do our system of government more harm than good and be an extraordinarily expensive exercise - one that would go on costing. The cost of being a crowned republic is minimal compared with this.
Republicans need to face reality.

Flinty indeed. Someone mention the Queen? Flinty jumps to attention when the Queen speaks. Or was it big Al?

Your use by date expired some time ago. Why don't you just fade away while enough people have already forgotten you.

Salute the Queen every night and tuck yourself into bed with the Pommy flag while you dream of.... Ahhh can't go there can I?

Communicat is here too! And supporting Flinty's line.

Sorry Communi. Howard allowed a vote but ensured the only response was NO. Let's have a real vote and get these royal parisites off our backs. Of course some like that position but...
