AS we approach the royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton, the spirits of Australian republicans are running high. Criticism of the Windsors is becoming increasingly bitter and personal in some quarters.

Can you imagine a time when the truth ran free ...

^^^ The traditional structure of the monarchy, as discussed, is in process of being "modernized" and dismantled by William. Thus, if the need for traditional structure is the only thing keeping republicanism at bay, that too will soon be eliminated as an obstacle to a mature & independent country of Australia. ...

PW doesn't even want the job, does he?  He certainly doesn't act like an applicant.  Other than the perks of the thing.

What we need is a formal step down from PW/WK and Harry to marry a marvelous woman of substance/breeding/quality and step into the breach after PC passes.  Otherwise, they're doomed.  Diana was dead-on right about that.  I never saw it before until this stupid move of PW's.  Moms know best.

I can assure you all that this article is very true. The debate is coming from intellectuals, right down to ordinary citizens. I watch out for it and contribute where possible.  thumbsup

Personally, I didn't care if PW chose an aristocrat or not - coming from classless Oz, I would feel that would be hypocritical. The two things that really irk me about Kate are, IMO: a) her lack of discernible work ethic, ergo unwarranted airs of elitism, arrogance and entitlement; and b) the suspicion over her "stalking" of William, as her life's ambition - and that of her mother, particularly. I'm just getting the feeling that they wouldn't take "no" for an answer, and that worries me.  easter-think

Australians can be quite crude, but quite right in the sense that we don't take to BS very kindly. That is why William puts on his hooligan hat when he visits.  X-Mas_rolleyes

I totally want to visit Australia and New Zealand.  So many of my friends have been there and they come back and say, "They're like us, only better!"

If you need a petition signature, I know a few who wouldn't mind helping out, even though they live here (surfing - even tho yours is better).  You guys deserve to be the first to have Freedom.  JMHO.
