No, we are a republic with a queen

Pond for queen
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

Does Australia need to hand in part of its fiscal revenue to the Queen yearly ?

You are a fool.

Don't waste your breath KIyer.

How long has your Governor-General Quentin Bryce been in the job? And how many months has she left in the office?

She's just fishing for a Baroness title mate.
Oh yes they will offer her one to shut her up.

Check your facts. Because we have the Queen as head of state, it costs us money to keep the GG, salary, mansion, annual "GIFTS" and a whole bunch. I think you are the fool here, because you fool no one with statements that make no sense! Having a "free" Queen is even more ridiculous!!

i dont know or think what the GG's motives are. I would not speculate. One does not have to. Its simply muddying the waters on this issue. One just needs to respond to this statement of hers that many agree with and many disagree with.
