Bob Carr's silver bullet
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Friday, 02 May 2014

Bob Carr has revealed himself in The Australian  2 May 2014 as a true Turnbullian republican. (Don't miss the punch line below) The silver bullet to get a politicians republic is very easy, according to Bob. All you do is you put the same model people overwhelmingly rejected in 1999. You do what Malcolm Turnbull proposed before Kerry Jones and I made our proposal. Malcolm wanted to words deleted from the question: "President" and, believe it or not, "republic".

Bob actually thinks that if you did this the Australian people would be so stupid as not to see the attempt to hoodwink them.

Be assured, Bob, ACM for one will be telling them what you're up to. (No doubt the other three monarchist organisations will be doing the same. This will be another united front just as we had at the convention).

Image



...coalition republican leader?...


And how will this be achieved? Someone from the Coalition rather than Labor. Why, he laments, didn't John Howard do this? The answer Bob is that he honoured his oath of allegiance and believed it constitutional system and the role of the Crown in it. Just as the founder of the Lliberal Party Robert Gordon Menzies did.

So who has Bob in mind to promote a republic? He doesn't say so, but is he suggesting that the future conservative leader who will make Australia a republic is none other than the Member for Wentworth?

By the way, Bob  rejects Bob Hawke's view that the next reign will result in a politicians' republic falling into the pollies laps. '

He quite likes Prince Charles who  would make a "good monarch." He says he makes his republicanism wobble. "Who would we elected in his  place? A general? A tennis star? "  .

How about some of those who have appeared before ICAC?

 

 

 
Gerry Adams, 1999 Yes campaigner, arrested
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Thursday, 01 May 2014

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, who famously  campaigned  for the Yes case in the 1999 Australian republican referendum, was sensationally arrested last night over the murder of a widowed mother of ten who was abducted from her home during the ''Troubles'' more than 40 years ago.

At the time of the referendum, ACM called on the ARM to distance themselves from Adams, the only prominent foreigner in the campaign after the IRA had murdered two young Australians in the Netherlands. This is summarized in our report, ''Why republicans should have said No to Gerry Adams.''

According to the Daily Mail, the 65-year-old Adams had for decades dodged difficult questions about his alleged terrorist past. He was detained by detectives investigating the murder of Jean McConville - abducted and killed by the Provisional IRA in 1972 and later buried on a beach in the Republic of Ireland

 


 
Republic support crashes, especially among the young
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Wednesday, 30 April 2014

Support for a vague undefined politicians' republic has collapsed, according to an Essential Poll published on 30 April 2014. Wose for the republicans , the young are now confirmed as the least republican. If a referendum were to be held today, the Yes vote as a percentage would be likely to be in the twenties.

The polling result is in accordance with the trends identified by ACM on its principal  site.  With the youth result the trend line is likely to fall further over time. From 42% in Essential's 2010 poll, only 33% of Australians are now in favour of Australian becoming a republic.

 Note that the question, ''Are you in favour or against Australia becoming a republic?'' does not indicate the model. Once the republicans reveal their preferred model, support falls further.  

... youth support now lowest...

Once the republicans reveal their preferred model,  support  falls further.    ... youth support now lowest...  The ARM claim that the young have been the most republican for 30 years is once again shown to be an invention. As with the recent Fairfax -Nielson poll, the young have replaced the old as the least republican  with 29% of those aged 30 and under favouring a republic.  The middle aged remain the most republican but this is falling.
