Because having a foreign monarch is a holdover from when Australia was a colony, and saw itself as Britain in the South Seas. We are no longer a colony, are proud to be diverse, here for 65,000 years, and we know we're not British. So having foreign monarch no longer fits. Fair?

Good points all. But why?

He tells me that. It seems a little more complex than my favourite card game, 500, yes?
Replying to @Peter_Fitz
Magic: The Gathering, Peter. By far the best card game ever invented.

I still have very little clue what it's all about, but proud of my eldest son, who has just been made editor of this American website!
Unbothered. Moisturised. Happy. In My Lane. Focused. Flourishing. And very grateful to everyone who reads our work over at @CommanderHerald 鉂わ笍

The completely merciless @tracygrimshaw reaches for the long handle, and whacks hard. The PM clearly shocked. #Auspol
"Do you think maybe you slightly over-egged the part about 'I saved the country'?" Tonight on A Current Affair, Tracy Grimshaw goes head-to-head with Scott Morrison. Hear the prime minister's response TONIGHT at 7pm. #AusVotes #9ACA

All I know is, yesterday at Marrickville Town Hall there were several people putting action into the 鈥渃ourage of their convictions鈥 standing in the rain handing out HTV cards. Even though I only voted for one colour I was so proud of the country we live in and it鈥檚 many freedoms

The SMH actually has articles by left wing writers who aren鈥檛 journalists. It鈥檚 what the comments pages are for. I don鈥檛 have a desire to exist in my own bubble. Also enjoy the letters the following day pointing out the fallacies in the article.

@smh is still the best 'mainstream' newspaper AFAIK. @SatPaper is awesome but it's not as well known as it should be.

Come home! We miss you, and will leave a light on for you.

I ended my subscription of SMH a couple of years ago. I still miss holding it in my hands and turning it over to read the sport section. Did that for decades. Too many articles from right wing writers who weren鈥檛 journalists.

Seamus? The whole anti-vaxx war is over. You lost. Badly. Move on.

Have you reported on the FDA's Pfizer data dump they wanted kept secret for 75 years? Not one Australian media outlet has. Curious, huh. Never forget how they divided us.

Wow! That indeed looks crazy. What is the issue with the Lilley candidate? And is he the incumbent or the pretender to the throne?
Replying to @Peter_Fitz
My Brisbane pre-poll. Crazy sign-a-rama. Note sign on right re LNP Lilley candidate being referred to AFP. He wasn't there. Line up was long in foyer & entrance. I joked with the AEC guy it snaked like the Brisbane River. Had to because no room outside due to signs 馃

He wouldn't care either. He would have no presumption that he could guide in any manner what I think, or write. That would not be journalism, it would be propagandism and Herald readers would not cop it.
Replying to @Peter_Fitz
He's probably thinking the same of you too.馃憤
