    That was my understanding yes, otherwise why the hell do we have a governor general - Paying him for nothing if the Queen has real no say.

    Royalty as it is now as I see it.........a figurehead with no real power to back it up, for instance the Queen decides that China must be brought in to empire...........time for war, call the prime minister of England...........right, how much of a chance in 1000 has she got of forcing a war on China? Zero, nil or none............thats why I say if she can't dictate english policy, how much chance has she dictating policy to Aust?

    I'd reckon it won't have for another 20 to 30 years. A lot of people fought in wars because of our alliance with the Queen and they will be doing their best to keep us in the Commonwealth for as long as possible. When they pass on, the importance in saying a Commonwealth country won't be as important.

    The last "wars" we have fought have been because America asked us........... not the English, I would like to know did the Gov't here request permission off the Queen before making its decision :?:

    I didn't mean it like that. They won't want a change because they fought under this flag, a commonwealth country.

    Why bother changing the flag :?: It is our history after all, we have changed the national anthem already from god save the queen, so why bother with the flag, leave it as is I say

    Maybe one small bit changed, the top corner where the union jack is changed to something, I would like to see the aboriginal flag there maybe.

    Republic all the way!

    Probably the only reason the referedum a couple of years ago said no was because the model proposed was ****ty.
