BTW Brucey, yes I am biased against Socialism, Postmodernism, Intersectionality, critical theory in its various ridiculous manifestations... etc etc.

And proud of it ;)
I'm not a monarchist or a Republican, I just want a system that works and the current system seems to be doing its job.

Having someone above politics as Head of State who can be respected when the politicians are causing turmoil is a good thing imo, just look at the USA, if t he President turns out to be a fruitcake.

Of course the Monarchy is not perfect either, but they have the breeding to give sympathetic words at the right time without an excess of power that could be dangerous in a democracy.

This is why I have to ask of our Green supporters here; are you proud of the response from your leadership? 😲
My observation is that the Greens are alone on this one, very much so.

Everyone from political leaders from the major parties to church leaders to rock musicians have made positive comments but here we have someone saying "move on".

That's coming from a party that's somewhat notorious for itself clinging to the past and refusing to "move on" over anything they disagree with.

I'm neutral on the whole monarchy versus republic thing but no, now's not the time to be saying "move on" when someone extremely well known and respected by a very large number of people just passed away in circumstances that were unexpected by most. Everyone knew it would happen someday yes but I doubt anyone was seriously expecting it even 12 hours before it was announced so it's a shock to most. :2twocents

I was really worried when they said the Queen wasn't going to meet Liz Truss but when she actually did, I thought she was OK.

In hindsight she was probably suffering during that meeting. Duty.

The response from politicians:

We all know our PrimeMinser is no fan of the monarchy, and you should all know by now I am no fan of the PrimeMinser.

However, his public response at this point has been word perfect (as have been the majority of other pollies). Good show, there is plenty of time for an recriminations in the fullness of time, but not now FFS.

Adam Bandt is a 💩 stain on humanity. It's a shame the greens have been hijacked by this woke Californian ideology. He is so blind he can't see that Charles has greener views than the greens and has had those views for longer than Adam has been alive.

Ironic really. The environmentalists of the world should be rejoicing right now that Charles is King. (But then again, the Aussie Greens are not environmentalists)

Watched the Kings speech this am and it was surprisingly good. I was worried he’s going to put his nose into politics but by the tone and words it sounds like he’s going to stick to cutting ribbons and opening hospitals etc. But, let’s see.

The Greens? 🤬

Republic? Yes please, but I doubt we’ll get there with the divisive woke pirate hypocrite leading the way.

No minutes silence in the AFLGBTQI+ for the weekend because it’s indigenous round… 🤔

A Republic debate should be led by the people not the politicians .

Wasn't sure whether to talk about this here, or in Horace's thread...anyway, anybody notice that Newscorp has started the process of whiteanting King Charlie?

The articles coming from there I would have expected from the ABC (but they have been showing admirable restraint so far).

Apart from being pretty puerile lowbrow, it seems like the Murdochs may just have some sort of an agenda there... thoughts?

I never read Murdoch, but after the treatment they gave Meghan and Harry, nothing would surprise me.

They started it 40+ years ago. But despite the media hating on Charles and painting him in a terrible light for decades, he took it like a man and is now killing it in the latest polls!

Lot of people saying they don't want Charles on $5 note.
Luckily we have a good option.
I would like it personally.

That would finally push me over the edge. I would have to gouge my own eyes out or something.

In all seriousness though, as we are a constitutional monarchy those people should stfu and crawl bank in the dank and malodorous cesspit from which they came, until such time as we don't have a king.
