Is the Queen about to Die?

Postby Paphitis » Tue Jan 03, 2017 2:28 am

Australian PM was at a Republican gala Dinner last week saying that the Australian government is waiting for the Queen (Australian Head of State) to die before the Republican Movement goes back into full swing and Australia holds another referendum.

Apparently the Republicans are waiting for Charles to take over the reigns and want to strike before William. They fear William.

Do you think the Australian Government knows something?

Food for thought. :lol:

Well, if the "Australian Government" gets its information from teenage social media sites, then it's only 2 weeks behind the Reddit and Tumblr kids. :roll:

"Greek" Island Girl,

Do you really think they would have to rely on Social media on matters regarding the Head of State?

It's just odd that the PM said what he did, and then we hear on the news that she missed out on Church Services on Christmas and new Years when she attends every week without fail. Oh and she didn't join the family on their retreat.

She did actually, she just didn't go to Church.

Oh. Look I wish her good health anyway, so she can spend time with her Great Grand Son. And maybe catch Harry's wedding too. That harry is the best one of the lot. Look's like an all-round good guy.

But the Republicans in Australia are getting a bit jumpy at the moment. And man, not before time either.

There is no reason to maintain this Monarch.

Now this is an argument you can’t possibly lose Paphitis!

If you keep this thread alive long enough she’s bound to die and you’ll win and then you can claim…

“Told you so!”

No disrespect meant - at all - but In my experience there are few in the U.K. who' spend time reflecting on Australia's constitutional status. It's a matter for the Australian electorate to decide. Any arguments, either for or against republicanism, should be an entirely internal matter.

If you're up for a trade deal though ......... :D :wink:

No I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

Just the Republicans said that they are going to initiate a referendum after her reign. They don't believe they can win the referendum because she is apparently very popular with the low information female Women's Day magazine readers. :lol:

Apparently William and harry are also popular. But not Charles. :lol:

Ned Kelly will be turning in his grave.

Yeh I reckon Australia is up for a trade deal most definitely. They would be very keen for an FTA after BREXIT because it would be stupid not to when they got an FTA with EU. I think Canada and NZ will be up for it too. Trump's USA should be cool too.

I was already under the impression that the UK Government were already onto it.
