Hear no evil, see no evil, do no evil

Ousted Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull attended a dinner last night marking just over twenty years since Australians voted to retain our Constitutional Monarchy.

Along with Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese, and Greens Leader Richard di Natale, laid out their reasons for why Australia should become a republic.

Notwithstanding Albanese’s facile reference to the Duke of York’s disastrous interview, the reasons cited to media include the fact that the Queen doesn’t live here, that our Constitution bars those with more than one national allegiance from serving in the Federal Parliament, and “it’s just inappropriate in 2019… “

I kid you not, Albanese said that to the gaggle of media present after the dinner. It sounds like the Opposition Leader is saying “We should move with the times; it’s the current year!”

If I hadn’t heard it myself, I wouldn’t believe that the Opposition Leader could be so puerile in his argumentation, but not only is his argumentation puerile, it is also disingenuous.

Speaking of disingenuous, Turnbull – a trained lawyer – tried to pull out the canard that Queen Elizabeth and her family feel more loyalty to the United Kingdom than to Australia.

I’ve never liked Turnbull, but even someone who does not read Law would realise that his narcissistic claptrap is one of the reasons why people voted down the Republic in 1999. We the People do not want an egotistical globalist as our Head of State.

Her Majesty may live in her Realm of the United Kingdom, but as Turnbull well knows, the Commonwealth of Australia is a sovereign nation in Personal Union with the United Kingdom, and all of Her Majesty’s other Realms.

Should Australia become a Republic?

Needless to say, my answer is no. I’m a committed Constitutionalist, and I can’t think of a better system than the one we have. No, it’s not perfect, but it’s better than the rest.

Even with Prince Andrew’s egregious indiscretions tarnishing the Royal Family, that does not diminish the stability of our current constitutional arrangements.

Antisemitism claims have one goal: To stop Jeremy Corbyn winning power A supposed antisemitism crisis in Britain’s Labour party since Jeremy Corbyn became leader has erupted back into the headlines. This time barely any effort has been made to conceal the fact that the accusations relate to the “danger” that Corbyn could soon win power, with Britain gearing up for a general election in less than a month. This week Britain’s chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, added his voice to argue in the Times newspaper that the opposition leader was “unfit for high office” – the first time a serving chief… Read more »

A reminder: In the 1930s the UK Parliament passed an Act removing most of a monarch’s powers there and in Commonwealth of Nation member countries including Australia. It is a ceremonial role now and that includes signing on behalf of a government certain papers presented for signing, no power to act without advice from a government. In the 1980s the Australia Act of Parliament reinforced the UK Act specifically for Australia. One result was the loss by Australians of the right to appeal in the Privy Council UK, the High Court of Australia is the highest court Australians have access… Read more »

It’s long been considered an evolutionary puzzle, but new research suggests this may be the wrong way to think about it

Julian Assange, as a journalist reporting to the world, is a true hero of our times.
Our government is too gutless to protect him as an Australian citizen.
Kevin Rudd is now speaking out on Assange’s behalf (now and not when he had the power to do something).
At least he is speaking out now…
Assange’s only chance for justice is if the most powerful man, President Trump, intervenes on his behalf.
There is very little chance of that.
He will be a martyr for the truth and deliberately buried in official history.

Re the ongoing media outrage over Prince Andrew’s indiscretions and his association with Geoffrey Epstein, am I the only one who suspects that the Prince is being held in the spotlight in the hope that it will distract the mob from looking too closely, if at all, at others who were involved?

“If being an extremely likable person beloved by every true American is a crime, then lock me up!” she said, laughing. “I’m guilty on all counts! Put me away for years! Throw me in the dungeon and toss the key in the garbage!”

She also confessed to lesser crimes of being “a woman of the people” and “extremely relatable.”

If you substituted krudd for elmer fudd in the picture above, then I’d be happy to spend an entire afternoon using the three for target practice – darts, balls, air rifle, arrows – anything you like. I cannot think of any other combination of three more loathsome politicians than krudd, turdball and the despicable di natale.

Just the thought that any one of them thinks they’re Premier, PM or el Presidente quality material for an Australian republic, makes me feel nauseous. Definitely no, thanks.

Push for an Australian republic has ‘zero chance of success’

The Herald Sun’s James Campbell says the latest push for Australia to become a republic has “zero” chance of being successful.

A passionate cohort of campaigners, including former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese, have renewed their calls for Australia to become an independent republic more than 20 years after the 1999 failed referendum.

Mr Campbell said “in the 20 years” since the last failed referendum into the issue, “no one has come up with a way of getting around” ‘unpleasing’ facets of the previous model.
