I am an Australian republican and see no reason why Australia should have any formal ruling ties to Britain and the Queen.
R said tonight, nothing on tv tonight, meaning there was not much of interest on our ABC. I reply, yes, there is The Queen at 90. It is not a case of 'know thy enemy'. I'll wait until she is dead before I become a formal republican activist and campaign to rid us of those foreign born to rule types. But by the way she is going, she might outlast me. Old queens have their place in our lives.
