Republican dreams fade Print E-mail
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Tuesday, 22 March 2011
 Aboriginal elder Esther Kirby from Kerang Victoria says she would like to see a king of Australia once again. "I think it's fantastic," she told The Australian’s Stuart Rintoul  as she waited for the prince to arrive.

"He's his mother's son, I think -- a new generation."


Would she like to see a republic?

 "No, I think we should have a king," she said. But young King William, not old King Charles, "because he's young and cute".

...rekindling a love of Kings...




In “Republican dreams fade in prince's face” (22/3)  Stuart Rintoul conclusion is about the visit is this:

 It is a measure of how far republican dreams have retreated in Australia that a prince with a boyish face and a nice way about him can rekindle a love of kings.

He tells how Jan Jewsin was early into the street in Kerang, in place a good two hours before he arrived, a photograph of a young princess Diana printed on her handbag.

"I've had the handbag for many, many years," she said.

"I had it up on my wardrobe and I thought today I'd bring it out because the prince reminds me very much of his mother.

"She said she had come to see the prince, "because we appreciate what he's doing for our country people, to come and see us in bad times.

"I'd love to see him the next king. I'd like to see a king of Australia. I'm the old-fashioned type."




...and the young?...

Prince William visit ends Print E-mail

Monday, 21 March 2011

Prince William has ended his Australasian natural disaster tour with crash courses in Aussie Rules and Victorian floods, reported the 24 News broadcaster Sky News on 21 March 2011.



Having witnessed the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake and the Queensland floods, Prince William visited the flood-ravaged communities of Kerang, Benjeroop and Murrabit in the state's north on Monday.

He endeared himself to the locals who, as well as enduring a flood that is still lingering, have been hit in recent years by a locust plague and a train crash that killed 11 people.

'Having him here was just the tonic for us all,' said Sid Hutchinson from Kerang.

'We've all been through a bit and we've all worked bloody hard to keep this town going.'

The prince's day in Kerang began with a briefing on January's floods and the massive local effort that saved the town from the floodwater that covered almost a quarter of the state.

Warning to republicans- it is not going to be easy Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Monday, 21 March 2011

The New Zealand Herald (19/3) is saying something we have been saying to those lazy republicans who now think that all they have to do is to wait until the end of the reign, and a politicians’ republic will fall into their laps.


Image



Referring to the “conventional view in both countries that a republic is inevitable, but not in the Queen's lifetime”  - a view conventional among the elites – the editor says:

“If the monarchy is to endure in this part of the world, Prince William has the manner to do it. He will be aware it is on shaky ground, it has become a conventional view in both countries that a republic is inevitable, but not in the Queen's lifetime.

"In all likelihood, though, the institution will survive the Queen with ease.

"It may even enjoy a new lease of life in the tributes for her and the reflections on another long Elizabethan era.

"Interest will also be sustained by the coronation of Charles, who promises to be a fairly interesting king.”

Exactly. So, you republicans, go and work out what politicians’ republic you what and what new flag you are proposing and until then leave the nation in peace.
