Why I changed from being a republican to being a monarchist

Research output: Other contribution


I became a republican the day that governor-general John Kerr sacked Australia’s prime minister Gough Whitlam in 1975. I was certain that Kerr could not have made such a decision without approval from Queen Elizabeth II – and I did not agree with our head of government being decided by someone living in another country.
