Australian Republican Slams Denmark's Monarchy Too! Print E-mail
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Thursday, 15 January 2004

As for his statement " all monarchies are evil". If I'm not mistaken, the majority of the world 's longstanding (i.e. more than 60 years old) liberal democracies are monarchies. So Denmark defies the EU thought police! Good for them. As for Australia, Give me the iron boot of the Mountbatten-Windsor tyranny any day, rather than have to abide by the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, or whatever UN committee, Barns would install in its place here. Alan Dungey"

 

Crikey received other letters including this one: Nothing's rotten about the state of Denmark I have just read failed republican campaigner, sacked Liberal candidate and now failed member of the failing Australian Democrats, Greg Barn's, raving about the visit to Tasmania by the young Danish royals. I have just had a Danish couple at my Bed & Breakfast business and we discussed this fine young couple and the popularity of the Danish royal family in Denmark. I fail to see what his snipe concerning Muslims and against a current Danish MP (if true off cause because you can never trust a republican) has to do with the royal family. During WW2 neutral Denmark was occupied by the Germany's and the Danes resisted using civil disobedience and strikes (the whole population). Also the Jews in Denmark were successfully hidden in Danish homes and then secretly evacuated at night to a third country (Sweden I think) under the noses of the Germany. My B&B guest, as a 7-year-old, had a Jew in his house and he was told to say he was an Uncle. I rest m y case M r Greg Barns - so g e t a life!! Adrian Jackson, Progressive Liberalism Organisation Middle Park, VIC Well! On reading these, Mr Barns no doubt felt as he did on the evening of 6 November2b04.'...well and truly defeated.
